4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Shattuck | Rose, Berkeley, CA 94709 |

Reception with Verizon for the last few years--very good in most parts of Berkeley. Previously had Cingular, was much worse. I'm at the foot of the No. Berkeley hills. Would like to leave Verizon since it's so union-hostile, but don't want to deal with the bad reception again...

Its perfect. I can even use it when i'm on BART, on the campus and all around Berkeley. And it dosen't cost me an arm and a leg.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Cedar | Grant, Berkeley, CA 94703 |

Inside my house (Grant at Cedar) I get barely usable reception. I find myself going to the windows to get a clearer call. Outside I get good reception. I used to be on Sprint and T-Mobile in the same location and they were noticeably worse. Definitely would NOT move back to those.

I have almost no reception in my apartment and when I do, I have to stand in one spot to get. Calls get dropped regularly too.

I would expect more from Sprint in a Major U.S. ctiy like Oakland. Service is so low and poor north of lake merritt. We live but maybe a mile from Oakland's skyscrapers... ..It's just awful, Sprint will probably no longer be our carrier if they don't take care of this by the time our contract is over in January 2009.

There are patches where there is no reception at all. I thought Verizon was supposed to have the best signal in the Bay Area! The USB data access for my laptop also doesn't work.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Skyline / Redwood, Oakland, CA 94619 |

Inside or outside the house does not matter: reception is bad (often no reception at all), conversations break off, line gets dropped. Also there is a dead zone coming up on Redwood just before Skyline, all calls are dropped no matter what. Going down the hill on Redwood, starting at the Safeway at I-13 reception is fine, 4 bars at least.

Very poor coverage. Stuttering reception. People should band together to request another antenna!
