Sprint really is the worst in the Oakland Hills. There is basically no service. I used to have Cingular and it worked fairly well, but its was no picnic either. I have found out that Verizon works the best. You can even get clear signal in Roberts Park and Tilden Park. I think I'll be moving to Verizon.Was this review helpful to you?
We get no reception in our house and have to go outside to use the cell phone. My husband (who uses a different phone than I do) gets no reception in his downtown SF office. We can carry on a conversation in the Berkeley flats, but it's never great.Was this review helpful to you?
Actually I get four bars but when I make a call, it gets crackly and the person on the other end can't hear me. This is in North Oakland, inside a small building, near a window. This happens in multiple locations in the East Bay: UC Berkeley campus (94720) Berkeley hills -- at a location supposedly served by a special Cingular tower, and five bars displaying Downtown Berkeley (94720) The Cingular sales guy says he never heard of this happened before ;[Was this review helpful to you?
Poor reception indoors (in Apartment Building) 1- 2 BARS. Great reception outdoors (outside of Apartment Building): 4-5 BARSWas this review helpful to you?
Horrible Reception in my home, cannot use phone most of the time. Some spots in Alameda are just ok, most of Alameda is horrible. They said there is a cell tower 3 miles away and they have a range of 30+ miles. NO EXCUSE for the bad signal!!Was this review helpful to you?
A few years ago Verizon coverage in my house was Perfect. Maybe one dropped call over a period of 2 years. Over the past year coverage has degraded. When I'm on conference calls at home, I no longer feel comfortable using my cell phone because I keep getting, "Sorry, you're breaking up... can you repeat that?" or "I think I heard what you said. Let me repeat back and tell me if that's right." I'm somewhat tempted to try out Cingular since the time I tried my friend's phone in the house and around the neighborhood. She had almost full bars all around the house and on MLK going to Solano Avenue. But I have to say the reception was crackly. It was not as crisp and clear as what I get with my Verizon phone. Who knows-- maybe it was her phone (i.e. a different model with better RF would have sounded better). Anyway, my contract with Verizon is up in November, so MAYBE I'll check out Cingular.Was this review helpful to you?

All over this part of rockridge, from the bottom of the hill by the Country Club, down Manila, and up College ave from Manila to the next street closer to BART - reception is terrible. Inside, fahgettaboutit. My girlfriend's Sprint phone seems to work o.k. A friend's AT&T had no service either, but another friend's Cingular even worked inside my apartment.Was this review helpful to you?
