1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Hopkins | Sutter, Berkeley, CA 94707 |

We live in a particularly difficult spot for reception, in a shallow valley halfway between the Shatuck and Solano towers. I use a rooftop antenna plus repeater and service is tolerable (2 bars) in most areas of the house. I do not blame T-Mobile - Berkeley currently has only two cell phone "tower" locations. New towers are opposed by activists who oppose cell towers on principle. The Berkeley City council, hearing very little to the contrary, is compliant with this argument, and requests for new towers or antennas are rejected with the claim that no additional service is necessary.

This is a difficult service area in the Berkeley hills. AT&T service is extremely spotty and very poor when it exists at all. My Verizon tablet usually gets and holds 3 bars. I'll be switching my voice line to Verizon once my contract term is up.

Verizon coverage in house is quite good, though the 3G sometimes does not work. No phone dead zones in house, but customer service in recent months has been HORRIBLE, so I am looking around.

I will never buy AT&T and iPhone combination again. It's horrible and very poor service. Only 1 of 10 calls succeeds, but AT&T shows here is excellent signal reception area in their web page.

Horrible. I even bought the micro cell tower. Still no good. AT&T told me my upload speeds on my ISP was too slow... Seriously? I have to upgrade from a $55 ISP plan to $100 / month or more? My phone was stolen last night and it seems that I'm going to have to give Verizon a try...

No data reception when I'm sitting in the bus on Davis St.between California St. and Pine. Reception comes back when my bus (the #38 Geary) goes 3 blocks outbound on Market St.(at Kearny).

I'm at the 26th Floor of 101 California Street. Spotty connection for voice calls. No connection at all for data. Slightly better connection when I walk towards the window. I got no problem at all with my Blackberry on Verizon (company phone). Shame on you, AT&T. I can't wait for my contract to expire (another 11 agonizing months to go).

Recently upgraded two phones and re-signed two year contract. We get next to no bars throughout apt., occasionally may get one bar on a "good" day. Calls regularly dropped. It is VERY aggravating and disappointing. We mistakenly thought we would have better service with At&t service and the upgrade of phones.

I get ZERO reception in my office on one of the busiest intersections in San Francisco. What a joke AT&T is! What kind of service is that? I have to WALK around the neighborhood in order to make a call on my cell phone. The CEO should be fired. How could a company be so horrible and still make so much money? I pay over $100 / month for this horrible service.
