5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Brannan | Delancy, San Francisco, CA 94107 |

Great reception in general and in South Beach in particular. I live in the center of the 200 Brannan condo complex and get good reception in my condo, not perfect but pretty good.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Sobrante Rd. | Thornhill Rd., Oakland, CA 94611 |

Get one to three bars and calls drop regularly. Sometimes phone indicates signal but do not receive calls or SMS which results in delayed voicemail alert.

Verizon has good signal and coverage throughout the East Bay and SF. I've never really had problems with dropped calls or no signal.

I just switched to ATT / Cingular. The reception is 5 bars most of the time. Drops to 3 indoors far from windows or in the elevator. My phone has 2 bars in my basememt garage where I used to not get a signal with Verizon.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Ellsworth | Dwight, Berkeley, CA 94704 |

I've been using Metro PCS with a RAZR V3 all around berkeley for almost a year now and I've been very happy with the coverage around here. There is no need for a landline in my room because the reception here is almost always good. Every once in a while I'll miss a call from bad reception, but in general it works great outside and solid inside.

T-Mobile

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Hyde St. | Bush St., San Francisco, CA 94109 |

T-Mobile's EDGE / GPRS "Broadband Speeds wherever your phone works" is AWFUL! I spent $180 on the card for my new Sony Vaio Laptop and $49 / month for the EDGE / GPRS Service. I was told by T-Mobile that it would be fast. EDGE / GPRS is SLOWER than a Dial-up connection! T-Mobile offers no apologies, or a cent of credit for the crappy service. Most of the representatives at T-Mobile don't even know what EDGE / GPRS is. "Is this some sort of thing for your laptop, I've never heard of it." said one lady from T-mobile. I tried Sprint's EVDO, but it had spotty service, and their phones drop calls too much, not any worse than T-Mobile. DON'T GET T-MOBILE OR THE EDGE / GPRS laptop card! Not ready for the market yet, price should be reduced drastically. Oh and to those people who say "all cell phone companies have issues and drop calls", that is like saying all cars break down. Yeah, they do, but Honda's and Toyota's statistically do it less than say a Ford. My point is some carriers are of course better than others. I had VERIZON and the phone worked everywhere, and rarely dropped. CINGULAR (Which is going back to AT&T now... WTF?!) has strict credit requirements, awful customer service, and their phones drop constantly even though the billboards say "least dropped calls", they are terrible. Why can't a company just make a basic phone that works. I don't need to watch TV or use my phone like my iPod. I use my iPod when I don't wanna talk or be near my phone. No real world testing. The NOKIA 6133 I now have from T-Mobile though is the only bright spot. Easy to grip rubberized exterior and push a button to flip it open make it great. Also a durable phone, T-Mobile sucks, but Nokia 6133 rocks.
