3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Upper Lakeshore, Oakland, CA 94610 |

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.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | University | Sacramento, Berkeley, CA 94703 |

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.

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.

Cingular drops calls in the house more than 50% of the time. Reception vaires from no bars to 3 bars in the same location.

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.

T-Mobile

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Hearst Ave. and Gayley, Berkeley, CA 94720 |

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?

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Skyline Blvd. and Redwood Rd., Oakland, CA 94619 |

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).

Coverage with T-Mobile in this area is excellent. The sound quality during my conversations is consistently good, and I never get any dropped calls.
