1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Hopkins | Action, Berkeley, CA 94702 |

The guy at the AT&T store in El Cerrito said a new tower is going up at Hopkins and Carlotta by Dec 31st so hopefully that will improve reception.

AT&T has had it's ups and downs over the years, but since mid summer totally coverage in Berkeley has been absolutely AWFUL. Lots of drops and missed calls (right to voicemail), coverage holes (e.g. Marin from Albany border pretty much all the way up the hill, also northside and above campus). Forget about any kind of real-time data, in the time it takes Google maps to load a page you can get across town. Driving from Berkeley to SFO area I expect 5 or 6 drops - at least once getting to the freeway, again on the bay bridge near YB, couple more passing by downtown SF.. another at hospital curve. It's insane. The FCC&FTC need to start probing AT&T.. that, or I wish some class-action firm would get interested in bringing a case.

I bought an iPad 3g hoping to access my favorite web radio station at work (since my employer blocks it on their network), at first I was able to access it, but after a couple of weeks there was no longer any signal. My secretary who sits across from me says she needs to find a window and wave her iphone around to try to detect a signal if she wants to make a call.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Financial District, San Francisco, CA 94109 |

I live on Nob Hill and can get PHONE reception up here, but despite living in a studio, my phone rarely gets a data connection in the bathroom. (yeah, I know..). In the financial district I get data about 1 / 2 the time. Many parts of SF (W. Addition, Castro, Marina Green), NO data. ALWAYS the same spots. Not even the crappy "edge" service. Many times it says "E", but there's no connection. Every time I call T Mobile, same thing, they want me to call from a land line to "troubleshoot." Right, so it's the phone that's the problem. Odd how it conks out at same locations every time. SUCKS! What's the point of paying for data service on a mobile phone when there's no service to be had? NO THX T Mobile.

ATT in the same location with another BB was fine, no breakup - Sprint signal appears weaker in this specific spot, reception is spotty causing dropped words in conversation - Sprint is sending another phone, suspect it may be this phone - I will update if reception improves with the new phone, or leave this comment and just switch back to my previous carrier.

No AT&T reception at all at Mississippi and Mariposa where I work. AT&T is useless, a real ripoff in San Francisco.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Next To AT&T Park | 4th St., San Francisco, CA 94107 |

Terrible service from AT&T. I rarely can use the phone, and rarely can I get email or use the web. This service is a rip off, they should be sued for cheating their San Francisco customers. I am going to use my Iphone as a ipod touch. I need to buy a phone from a real cell phone service.

I've had AT&T for 6+ years, never had a dropped call but sometimes poor reception inside. They added or upgraded a tower near here in the last year. Now I get 4 bars in the house, and usually 4-5 walking around the neighborhood.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Mission St. | 9th St., San Francisco, CA 94103 |

Inside the 5th floor of a building facing the intersection I mentioned. My desk is near a window, but my cell has no bars and no 3G. In some days, I get lucky with getting three bars and GPRS, but they don't last long. Frustrating.
