overall service is excellent, especially compared to competitors (ATT, T-Mobile in particular)... too bad the Iphone doesn't work on CDMA networks! I will have some distortion on some calls but usually because of trees / foliage. EVDO is decent too. I'd recommend Sprint if you are in San Francisco. Verizon is #2.Was this review helpful to you?
Drops calls regularly. Previously had Motorola V3xx. Other family phones (Motorola KRAZR) work fine with 5 bars. Go figure?Was this review helpful to you?

Reception is shoddy, comes and goes without me even moving. It will go from no service to three bars and then drop the call. I had Verizon last year and reception was equally bad (I suspect they share the same crappy tower). I also suspect that the majority of homes in this area have lead paint and this possibly degrades signals since Alameda just has horrible coverage all around. I guess the next thing to try is Sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
I have had T mobile for 2 years, the only place it dropped calls was in the Santa Cruz mtns. It has been great all over San Francisco.Was this review helpful to you?
Reception is terrible no matter what kind of phone I use. No signal, low signal, dropped calls - you name it.Was this review helpful to you?
My 3rd floor apt is on the opposite of the building from the direction of the signal broadcast. One moment I can have 4 bars, the next the tower seems to fade entirely out - all without moving. I redial my dropped call and sometimes it takes up to 10 minutes before I have sufficient signal strength. According to Sprint's coverage maps this is supposed to be an area of "moderate" singal strength... Looking forward to switching carriers once my contract is up to have better reception.Was this review helpful to you?
Bad reception all the time, I can hardly make a call, I'm thinking of going with VerizonWas this review helpful to you?
Verizon is pretty good almost anywhere else in the U.S. (I travel a lot), but it really sucks at home. Dropped calls are constant. I have to wander around my house every time I want to make a call in order to find a spot that gets even 1 bar. And, it keeps changing so I can never predict where the good reception will be. The local Verizon store a few blocks away has to use a special gadget / antenna just to boost their signal in order to get reception in their own store. Of course, part of the problem isn't Verizon -- they want to put up a few more cell towers to improve reception, but some Berkeley residents are afraid of being irradiated by cell phone towers. While there is no evidence for radiation danger from cell phone towers (at least on planet earth), the minority tyrannizes the rest of us who don't wear aluminum foil suits to protect us from those evil cell phone towers. Oh, please!Was this review helpful to you?
Everytime I get to a certain point on Broadway Terrace (just past Village Market) or turn onto Golden Gate from Ocean View, my call drops. I warn whomever I'm talking with that the call will be dropping soon. I call back when I get home (on Golden Gate) but have to stand in just the right spot in my house to get decent reception.Was this review helpful to you?
