1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 29th St. | Broadway and Harrison, Oakland, CA 94611 |

I have almost no reception in my apartment and when I do, I have to stand in one spot to get. Calls get dropped regularly too.

I would expect more from Sprint in a Major U.S. ctiy like Oakland. Service is so low and poor north of lake merritt. We live but maybe a mile from Oakland's skyscrapers... ..It's just awful, Sprint will probably no longer be our carrier if they don't take care of this by the time our contract is over in January 2009.

There are patches where there is no reception at all. I thought Verizon was supposed to have the best signal in the Bay Area! The USB data access for my laptop also doesn't work.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Skyline / Redwood, Oakland, CA 94619 |

Inside or outside the house does not matter: reception is bad (often no reception at all), conversations break off, line gets dropped. Also there is a dead zone coming up on Redwood just before Skyline, all calls are dropped no matter what. Going down the hill on Redwood, starting at the Safeway at I-13 reception is fine, 4 bars at least.

Very poor coverage. Stuttering reception. People should band together to request another antenna!

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Southampton | San Diego, Berkeley, CA 94707 |

inside and outside my house it's highly unreliable (both the number of bars and the quality that the bars represent), and very poor even at best -- scratchy sound quality, fading in and out, dropping calls, even not receiving calls. Awful. I have to use land line or drive somewhere out of the hills to make cell phone calls! My old dinosaur of a Nokia was better than the Samsung, but in this location, everything is bad.

Ridiculously terrible. Bars frequently read 4 or 5 but still drop 1 out of 3 calls, and I can't understand a word anybody says because of static, breaking up, and fuzz. Ick! Anybody have a better service in this area?

OOPS: in error and in my frustration from dealing with ATT, I accidentally listed my first post as Alltel, which is incorrect. I have ATT. The WORST SERVICE EVER. I have spotty coverage, the phone switches between 3G, Edge and G and I constantly drop calls... inside and even outside! I can walk 2 blocks up to Market and get a perfect 3G signal, and walk 2 blocks to Valencia and get a perfect Edge signal (even though the service is still spotty-at least it is consistent). However, in Dolores Mission... weak coverage. Per ATT Tech support, it is a weak coverage area and they plan to build a tower at 16th and Guerrero... but no idea when. My roommate has Sprint and can talk in the basement. I on the other hand, standing in the bay window or walking down the street, can watch my signal go from full bars to 1 bar and so on and so on. Their techinal support is lacking also and from other posts on here, see I am not the only one. I am going to Sprint.

Never a good signal on Harbor Bay. Frequent drops and constant "gerbling."
