2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Channing | California, Berkeley, CA 94703 |

There are weak spots all around our neighborhood. Note: I am 1 / 2 mile from downtown Berkeley. My phone usually shows 2-3 bars, but the signal improves if I'm outside. I know the weak Cingular's signal is the problem, not the phone because I travel regularly to Pasadena where I get 5 bars from the second floor of a 5 story hotel. I wish Cingular or someone would put up a cell tower in the middle of Berkeley somewhere. I read the other reviews of T-Mobile and Verizon having better signals in Berkeley and want to switch.

Never really had any problems with Verizon. Always works fine wherever I go in the bay area.

So far I've found that in the middle of the San Francisco Bay, Nextel sucks, Sprint Sucks, Verizon Sucks, and T-Mobile sucks.

My wife and I have different phones: me a Treo 650 and my wife a Motorola Razor. We both used to have Nokia 6000 series. We have always had no (zero) reception in this residential area. A block away at Spyglass Hill (east side), there is poor reception also. Maybe one bar only.

Even when my phone reads above average bars the reception is extremely poor.

Just about every call I've ever made from my house has been dropped. Sometimes I have to sit right up against the window and hold perfectly still to avoid losing the call, and even that doesn't always guarentee it. And as for when driving down 280 or even 101, don't get me started! Metro PCS is cheap and has unlimited minutes, but it's only worth it if you don't mind re-starting every conversation, and text messages being slower than paper mail.

We just moved to the nieghborhood and while we may have 3-4 bars, calls often drop on all 3 of our phones. Just talked to Verizon Customer Service and the closest tower is located between Lake Temescal and Hyway 24. We suspect that the problem is an over crowded cell due to commute traffic going through the tunnel. I'm stuck till July when my contract is up. Friends that have Cingular don't get dropped cals from here.
