I live up Golf Links off of Elysian Fields in Oakland. Reception normally cuts off when I start the trek up Golf Links right at the Zoo, in the first turn, it really doesn't work at all after that point, my calls just go to voicemail. Hopefully this helps somebody. My friend also has Sprint with a better model phone. A tri mode phone and it works 35 percent better than mine but they drop calls constantly as well. The only carriers that work better are Metro and Verizon, In Oakland Metro uses some of the Verizon towers, so that is all that I know about this area. Very Very Poor reception with sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
I have used Sprint for at least 3 years. I get some dropped calls but not that often. I used to think that Sprint was not a very good carrier, but after reading all of the comments on other carriers, I think it is much better than I gave it credit for. Sprint seems to work well in SF, downtown parts of Oakland and much of East Bay. It is very poor in Oakland hills. Nothing I read in comments convinced me that any other carrier is better, or as good, in this area. I'm sticking with Sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
I love my Metro! I get good reception everywhere in Berkeley. I've dropped my phone like a dozen times. I barely ever recharge the battery, and I have unlimited minutes. Metro is a land line mabye thats why.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint gets very poor reception in the University Village in Albany, and gets mediocre reception on campus.Was this review helpful to you?
I get terrible reception, and sometimes none at all. Many dropped calls. I have the same problem at work near Claremont Ave and Ashby. It was the same with AT&T and with my previous Nokia.Was this review helpful to you?

Cingular drops calls in the house more than 50% of the time. Reception vaires from no bars to 3 bars in the same location.Was this review helpful to you?
Previously with AT&T and Nokia phone, reception in house was perfect. After merger with Cingular, dropped to poor. Just signed with Cingular and new phone, and reception in and around house is still poor. Cingular employees in stores and on phone, however, have been excellent.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is pretty good outdoors on the northern side of the UC Berkeley campus. Few dropped calls and consistently good sound quality. Reception sometimes drops rapidly indoors, often to one bar or none. On the UC Berkeley campus for example, reception is terrible in various campus buildings like Evans, Valley Life Sciences Bldg, Pimentel, Tan Hall, and Foothill Housing, but reception is fine in various others (such as Davis Hall, Cesar Chavez, and Dwinelle). Maybe it depends on the building material?Was this review helpful to you?
Although I usually receive full bars in this area, almost every call has been garbled and interrupted with skips in the audio (half-second gaps of silence).Was this review helpful to you?
