In the previous entry I hit the US Cellular button by mistake it's T-Mobile that's terrible. I know nothing about US Cellular. My apologies to them

T-Mobile signal is *appallingly* bad in the East Bay. Over the Berkeley Oakland area I *average* about 0.5 bars. I *cant wait* to conclude my contract with them and switch to a real cell phone provider.

I was with AT&T with a sony erricson phone. The phone was junk and with the merger with Cingular the reception got even worse. I decided to give Cingular a try as they gave me a discount on a new phone and have a 30 day money back policy now. The reception is much improved but still not perfect at the house but at least I don't have to go outside anymore. Much of the improvement I think is with the phone not the carrier. If it wasn't for the discounted phone and the rollover minutes I would have gone elsewhere (verizon or Sprint in the city) and be done with cingular.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | 40th St. | San Pablo, Emeryville, CA 94608 |

3 yrs with vzw. great to decent reception in most places, although inside thick walled old building around Harrison and 20th Sts, had very spotty reception, even outside -with the 120c. the LG seems to maybe be getting a stronger signal. Here at home, over bay bridge, richmond bridge and through Marin, I found the coverage to be great - equal to the t-mo phone I'm currently testing out. Stafford Lake in Novato had no coverage on either. vzw phone said it had a couple of bars, but it never actually connected when I tried to check my vmail. today vzw dropped a call on Northgate at W Grand Ave, drove back that way with T-Mo and no drop. also vzw gets ok reception on Long Island and in NJ, although not so great indoors - generally need to stand near a window or go outside. this has been improving lately though.

I've only had t-mo for a few days, but here at home, over bay bridge, richmond bridge and through Marin, I found the coverage to be great - equal to or slightly better than my Verizon phone. Stafford Lake in Novato had no coverage. vzw phone said it had a couple of bars, but it never actually connected when I tried to check my vmail. today vzw dropped a call on Northgate at W Grand Ave, drove back that way with T-Mo and no drop.

As good as 6 / 6 bars inside my apartment, but also some dropped calls--reception inside seems widely variable over a space of a few feet. Outside reception is excellent. Coverage on the UC Berkeley campus is generally good, although spotty inside some buildings.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Alamdea CA | Otis and Park St., Alameda, CA 94501 |

Service never better than average. Since mid January phone says Cingular and has gotten worse, high of 3 to 2. Always dead spots at South Shore and Crown Beach. Glad there's only 5 months on TDMA. I can't upgrade to GSM without new 2 year contract with less minutes and activation fee. For that price will go Verizon out of spite.

I cannot make or receive calls from inside my apartment. I get a "no service" screen. If I stand outside on the sidewalk, I get fair reception, but often get cut off.
