Constant, predictable dropped calls and frustrating bouts of "hello? can you hear me? hello, are you there?" Like nothing else. Absolutely frustrating. Happens all over the neighborhood, inside the house, outside the house, doesn't matter. Friends and neighbors report the same. Bay Area alarm, which has cell signal strength testing equipment, couldn't install service at my location because the cell service was too weak. AT&T's coverage map depicts this neighborhood as "best" coverage. I consider this FRAUD.

Something has happened to Sprint - used to be Terrible Internet but decent phone calls. Now it's all bad. Every call is dropped on Park St. For a laugh- go to the Sprint store- all the demo phones are on wifi. There is no Internet available In their own store.

In the past two months service has plummeted and went into the Sprint store and they said just call for an airave that will boost signal strength. Did this and was on the phone for 41 minutes, 15 of it on hold. In the end they said I have to pay 150 add'l plus monthly service fees to get this. They blamed the poor service on two cell towers being down and in repair as we speak. Yeah of course they would say this. SPRINT SUCKS

In the last year my reception has declined tremendously. It used to be only one room in my home that I could not use my iphone. Gradually it has gotten so bad that I need to stand at my street facing living room window to talk. Even if I shift my position slightly I am told I can no longer be heard ! What is going on???

No problems at all. ATT is horrible in this area.

Reception had been great for last seven years -- then became terrible in June or so. ATT claims they are putting up new towers to fix the problem, by August. It is now August 15 and reception has only improved marginally.

The only time I have service is when I'm on my bed, upstairs, with my arm hanging out the window. It's ridiculous! I cannot call out or get calls / texts in. I have to leave my house in order to communicate. I'm totally frustrated.

Must sit outside to use internet, I have no idea what 4g is like, let alone 3g. Phone doesn't ring, delayed text messages, runaround from sprint, towers are out will be fixed soon. Lies. If an airplane goes over home phone drops call. They offered me a tower, but am I supposed to tote a tower around in order to have service? Impossible! Sprints the new metro :(

This area has perfect reception. There is no need to have any more reception in this area because reception is perfect.
