1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Channing Way | Sacramento, Berkeley, CA 94702 |

Almost all calls are dropped within 5 minutes. Verizon was better a few years ago. I think I might give T Mobile a try now that they are paying money for my Iphone 4 when I sign up and get an I phone 5

The only difference at my house between AT&T and Sprint is the sound clarity was better with AT&T. Pretty much the same amount of dropped calls and sound quality is much worse with Sprint.

AT&T is awful in Berkeley. About 50% of calls dropped. Sprint is no better. I get 1 bar at my house.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Kittredge and Harold Way Downtown Berkeley | Shattuck, Berkeley, CA 94704 |

Cell reception in downtown Berkeley is not that great. What I don't get is how I can get 52mbps download and 20mbps upload while sitting on college ave at chabot rd in Oakland but in downtown berkeley on LTE I get 5mbps download and 0.3mbps upload. Some of this probably has to do with the building I live in but I'm on the 4th floor and there's a cell tower two blocks up the street on Addison and a cell tower at UC campus.

On my 3g phone I get mostly only 1 bar (and cycling rapidly between 2 and 3 bars). So many of my calls go directly to voice mail without ringing my phone.

Suddenly, my reception has become almost non-existent. No bars is the norm. Occasionally, I get one bar long enough to start a call and get dropped. What is going on??? I switched from ATT to Virgin Mobile (which uses the Sprint network) in the summer of 2012. Reception was great until last week (mid Feb 2013).

Constant dropped calls. Barely audible by anyone. Texting is fine. But attempts at utilizing the internet are nearly impossible via my phone. I am required to sit or lay in one spot in my apartment, otherwise I lose reception. It is HORRIBLE. When I leave my neighborhood, all calls work fine. Even in different cities. Never had problems with my AT&T until I lived here.

Barely any reception at all, maybe 1.5 bars. Customer service told me they had a tower in the neighborhood that needed maintenance, but could not say when it would be performed. This was six months ago or more and nothing has changed. I dont know if any other carrier is any better on the island.

Very bad reception and at times no reception at all. I used to get four bars even by the beach but since 2011 the service has changed. I wonder why the change.
