I had Sprint and only was able to make / receive a call from my bedroom (luckily) and switched to Cingular not too long ago. Now I average 2-3 bars and can walk around the house without dropping the call. Although occasionally, the other end has a hard time hearing me in certain areas (especially the basement). Before I switched I checked the Cingular website for their maps and it seems to be fairly accurate. Also, my wife has Verizon (Motorola) and she says reception is terrible. Once her contract is up, she's switching to my Cingular family plan...

Near webster and central, I will get reception if I stand in one spot, but if I move, the signal is lost. It only gets better over near park street and that for me is only about 2 bars and still not great reception.

I have Verizon and occasionally get one bar but it's not enough to get or receive a call. They said I could cancel without penalty. I don't think anyone gets reception here. I got good reception when I lived on Snake Road.

Reception veers wildly from 5 bars to zip and back, inside or out. Every other call drops. We must be at the edge of a reception area; CDMA area retracts toward tower as call load increases.

I have had Sprint for over 10 years now. About 4 months ago, my phone started dropping every call. I got so fed up with it, that I considered changing services. I called Sprint and they looked up my account. They said that they could update my telephone. I called back in a half hour and they gave me a number to call. My phone was updated and has NOT dropped a call ever since. I'm keeping my Sprint. I didn't even know that you could have your phone updated. If your phone is dropping calls, call customer service and Sprint will help you out.

The reception on the west end of alameda is worse now than it has ever been. There are no bldgs to block signals. What is the story. Cingular needs to upgrade their signal strength badly.

Reception is above average outside, but call quality diminishes inside buildings in this area.

I cannot make calls most of the time. And often, if do, they are dropped within minutes.
