My Cingular service in downtown North Beach, or on any side of Telegraph Hill or Russian Hill is below average. Have not been wowed by Cingular, that's for sure. Although I am an old ATT customer, so not sure if my level of service is reflective of that. It seems to me that everyone has problems with their carrier in San Francisco in certain areas. It's just a sad reality that US cellular companies can charge as much as they do and then deliver sub par service. All because they won't pony up for more towers to reduce that high incidence of lost calls, poor signals, etc. Talk about a monopoly. This town needs a progressive company like NTT DoCoMo to come in here and force these lazy US carriers to clean up their act.

Inside the home, the reception is erratic; sometimes you get it sometimes you do not. I have waljked all over the studio trying to find the best reception are without success. I never experienced dropped call until I moved to this zip code.

The reception on this model is horrible. You can rest assured that if making or recieving calls in the area of 12th Av and East 22nd st all the way down to Park blvd your call will drop. Also, it doesn't work inside in these areas either. Most times I'm not able to use my phone until I'm actually on interstate 580 in either direction. However, it doesn't get any better once you transition onto Interstate 80 eastbound until you get to the city of Albany. From that point all the way to Vallejo it does fine.

Service is OK. I know of one 'dead spot' on Pacific between Jones and Taylor. Other than that I've had very few dropped calls. Service coverage goes as far north as Fairfax, but I'm not sure about how far south.

There is a hill nearby with an EBMUD holding tank - a perfect place for a transmitting tower...

Great coverage! Better than Sprint in the Bay. When it has no bars it still works perfectly. Some drop spots but works well in those places it works everywhere time to switch to Metro if you live in the bay.

If I stand outside on my balcony, I can usually squeeze out another bar. I'm getting really tired of dropped and unconnected calls.

Have had several Sprint phones, all had excellent reception at my home and throughout Montclair with the exception of some areas on or near Skyline Blvd. Currenly using a Treo 650 (solid reception no drops) and a Samsung A900 (solid reception) my wife has used several Sprint Samsung models all with good reception. I was given a Verizon phone for work (no signal at my home) switched models to the most expensive phone they had with allegedly good reception... still no signal at my home.
