1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Brannan St. / 2nd | Colin P. Kelly, San Francisco, CA 94107 |

I live on the 8th floor, and a T Mobile tower is at most 75 feet from my condo, directly across on top of the MCI offices at 274 Brannan St. T Mobile sucks big time! I constantly get a "Network busy" or "Network failure" message when I am talking or try to dial. JD Powers must be able to have been paid off, or someone knew someone becuase T-Mopbile has the rudest and most unhelpful people ever in customer service. And I am ALWAYS nice when I call, they get rude and are totally ghetto people who work there. I once waited on hold for 35 minutes for them to get a supervisor to approve a credit for their voicemail system being down for "maintenence" on a Thursday evening from 5pm-midnight. I missed a clients call I was expecting for dinner reservations. I thought he blew me off until I got an email saying how disappointed he was that I didn't show up later that night. The message was unreachable due to "maintenence" on Tmobiles part. It cost me a $8,500 job. T-Mobile after 35 minutes offered a $5 credit! I waited 35 minutes for $5 I said and told them they could keep it since they obviously needed it more than I did. STAY AWAY FROM T-MOBILE, don't belive Katherine Zeta-Jones... what does she know she married her grandfather.

I have AT&T / Cingular and none of them works at the front side of the house and are very poor on the other side. Frequently dropped calls. I get about 1 bar, and can rarely make calls. Phone only rings sometimes. It's hard to understand this situation, given the facts that Albany is a very residential area and mostly flat.

for 2 years i've had decent reception throughout the house, better than AT&T at the time I signed up. now that the ahsby cell tower is down I cannot use this as a business phone anymore. I am working on getting out of my contract without paying the fee as they are the ones in breach of contract.

Had AT&T (Nokia 6820) with Average reception, but after the Cingular merger, reception dropped to Poor. Dropped calls every day, late text messages, often failed to receive calls. Verizon has been much better at home and around the Peninsula.

Verizon on this end of the island is spotty at best. At home I might get reception in the house, but stepping outside doesn't even mean i've got something good enough to complete a call -- and it's not just my phone, several friends have similar problems when visiting.

Verizon is easily the worst service provider I've ever used. I need to go outside and walk halfway down the block in order to reliably make a call. And that call will be dropped within five minutes. And most of the five minutes will be taken up with "can you hear me now" and "can you say that again". I have contacted Verizon, and they sent one of their tech people down here with some sort of signal detector, and they agree: it sucks. In fact, it sucks so badly they have let me out of my contract and I am changing (don't know to which provider yet, that's why I'm here) without the early termination fee. If you have any intention of using your phone in Berkeley, make sure you are NOT using Verizon. If you already have Verizon, call them and make them let you out of your contract.

T-mobile reception has gotten increasingly worse over the last few months. Reception has always been spotty at Southshore, but now the reception over the entire island has gotten worse.
