Reception in home has never been good,and I have had about three or four different phones with Sprint over abt 10 years. over the last few months it has gone from poor to no reception. Dropped calls when I did have a little receception. in a nutshell... it's bad.

Every single call from anywhere in my apartment breaks up. Either I can't hear them or they can't hear me. Half of my calls are dropped altogether. Sometimes I go outside to use phone but that's not very safe and there's a lot of noise from traffic etc. Appears there are only two towers in all of Oakland and they aren't anywhere near downtown. Wish I knew this before I got stuck with AT&T.

I have a Nexus 4 on T-Mobile and rarely get more than one bar and often have no coverage when in my home. I also have an iPhone with Verizon and get great reception with that. Verizon is even faster than my WiFi sometimes.

Almost all calls are dropped within 5 minutes. Verizon was better a few years ago. I think I might give T Mobile a try now that they are paying money for my Iphone 4 when I sign up and get an I phone 5

The only difference at my house between AT&T and Sprint is the sound clarity was better with AT&T. Pretty much the same amount of dropped calls and sound quality is much worse with Sprint.

AT&T is awful in Berkeley. About 50% of calls dropped. Sprint is no better. I get 1 bar at my house.

Cell reception in downtown Berkeley is not that great. What I don't get is how I can get 52mbps download and 20mbps upload while sitting on college ave at chabot rd in Oakland but in downtown berkeley on LTE I get 5mbps download and 0.3mbps upload. Some of this probably has to do with the building I live in but I'm on the 4th floor and there's a cell tower two blocks up the street on Addison and a cell tower at UC campus.

On my 3g phone I get mostly only 1 bar (and cycling rapidly between 2 and 3 bars). So many of my calls go directly to voice mail without ringing my phone.

Suddenly, my reception has become almost non-existent. No bars is the norm. Occasionally, I get one bar long enough to start a call and get dropped. What is going on??? I switched from ATT to Virgin Mobile (which uses the Sprint network) in the summer of 2012. Reception was great until last week (mid Feb 2013).
