4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94109 |

I used to have T-Mobile which just blows in SF. As soon as I could, I switched and there is a huge difference. Yes I pay a lot more but at least I'm able to text and call inside of buildings by not having to stick my hand out the window.

Very few problems with SPRINT in my neighborhood and in general. A few weeks ago, some issues connecting to internet. I unfortunately have to change carriers and it sounds like I'm going to be disappointed with AT&T.

AT&T service is SO bad in Berkeley and North Berkeley. Used to live on MLK and Parker and it was bad, but not as bad as North Berkeley. When job searching, I had to buy a Vonage phone so I could do phone interviews. Now I'm lucky if I can go to Safeway and call home to see if we're out of milk. When on BART, the very second you leave McArthur, the service drops down to zero. I am happily switching to Verizon (even though it's more expensive) which has way better reviews in San Francisco (where I work) and Berkeley (where I live).

I drop about 6 calls a week in my apartment, 3rd floor. In general around the n. oakland / lake merrit / rockridge / berkeley area I would say my service is above average in my home below average so I give them an average rating.

I just moved to North Berkeley from SF. Everybody loves to bash AT&T in the city, but I always had great reception on my current and former iPhone there. However, since moving to Berkeley Hills last week I've been disappointed to learn how awful the coverage is here. In my apartment on Regal Rd.my phone alternates between no reception to poor reception. If I stand near one corner of the house I can make calls, but the audio quality is often poor. Also, when I drive down Marin Ave. my calls drop with consistency in a few places until I'm nearly to the highway. I run a small startup company which I was planning on relocating to North Berkeley from SOMA, but the lack of cell phone reception here has made me decide to keep my office in the city. My point of bringing this up is to show how the lack of cell phone coverage can affect the tax base, and probably property values as well. Surely I'm not the first business owner to decide against starting or relocating a business here because of the awful cell phone reception.

I've had AT&T "service" for about four years. Service in my home has been consistently terrible. Earlier this year, AT&T gave me one of their "mini towers," which has helped a bit. Often the mini drops out - just like the big towers. My wife and I will be switching to Verizon by year's end. All of our friends who have V find the service quite reliable.

Voice seems ok, but data has dropped off considerably in the past month or so. I used to get 4g service here just fine, but now Verizon has dropped down to 1g all over campus.
