2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Webster St. Oakland | Rich Or 42st and 42nd, Oakland, CA 94609 |

I am a former ATT / Nokia 3600 user. At this location, in my house, I NEVER had static or dropped calls until about a year after Cingular took over and I began to have frequwnt problems and was told we should migrate to Cingular, had to buy 2 new phones as the ATT ones woldn't work with Cingular... 1 Audiovox SMT5600 and 1 Motorola V620... both had excellent reviews... both get breakup and dropped calls... in my house!

Very erratic performance. Often phone will ring but reception is so poor, a conversation is impossible. Sometimes the phone does not even ring and the call does not appear in my mailbox for 1-2 days! On rare occasions, the phone will actually work well enough to allow a short conversation.

I used to get Average to Below Average reception here, and sometimes lose network coverage altogether. Sometime this year that changed and now my signal is strong and I'm always on-network.

Got about 1.5 bars on the street but while I'm in my house. Got no reception at all. Have called TMobile many times but no luck.

Reception in the N. Berkeley hills is very bad. Despite reassurances from Verizon that things will get better, they haven't. Dropped calls, when you can connect at all, are a way of cell life here.

Pretty variable reception here - somewhat better since I upgraded from my LG VX4000, and they may have improved the signal. But dropped and missed calls are still not unusual. My next door neighbor also has Verizon and I often see them out on the sidewalk explaining that they don't get any reception in the house. Verizon has not been particuarly helpful here - often giving me BS explainations. I finally got someone who was honest and said that there are holes in their Berkeley coverage and there's nothing they can do until more antennas get approved (hard to do in NIMBY Berkeley) A year ago I moved from 2 blocks away (Marin and Cornell) - then I had flawless 5-bar reception all the time with Verizon. What a difference a few blocks can make!

very spotty throughout rheem valley area of moraga. Calls always drop off on rheem blvd where I live. occasionally my phone roams at home and I get great reception, but I don't know what the other network is that is providing such good signal strength.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Redwood Heights Near Redwood / 35th Ave. | Monterey Blvd., Oakland, CA 94619 |

Reception below the ridgeline on the west side of Hwy. 13 was absolutely miserable in the past. I rarely could hang onto any call for more than a few minutes -- essentially unusable. Verizon was unresponsive to concerns about coverage. Reception quality seems to have improved significantly in the past couple of years. Now usable on a more consistent basis, but still fades out and drops sometimes.
