Luckily, I have a landline. It's useless to use my cell in my house. I actually live closer to Broadway. Reception is better if I go to the Broadway end of the house and non-existente at the Harrison end of the house. I have to use the phone outside on the top floor in the most westerly part of the building to have any type of serious conversation.

Glad I didn't cancel my land line... ... I don't want to repeat all the frustrating comments about AT&T and iPhone that you can read above / below but it's the worst mobile phone experience I had in my life - I definitely will try a different model and carrier

We have a family plan and in one of the cell phones there is no reception at all. In my second line if I'm lucky and if I stay in the good spot then I have 1 bar. I live in Berkeley downtown and thinking to switch to any other company because I'm sick of ATT, but I have to pay early termination fee. ATT is horrible I also have internet issues with them, well if you could my recommendation is avoid it.

AT&T has been getting progressively worse for the past few years. It was great 5 or more years ago but honestly at SFSU I have zero reception, the Financial District is constantly going between 0-1 bars, and my house has only 1 bar in the Fillmore. And like someone else said, Hayes Valley is the Valley of no reception.

get a lot of dropped calls. reception is not consistent, I would get no service at least twice a day inside and outside of the house. I would lose data also. I had AT&T and never had issues indoors of my house. calling T-Mobile did not help.

The guy at the AT&T store in El Cerrito said a new tower is going up at Hopkins and Carlotta by Dec 31st so hopefully that will improve reception.

AT&T has had it's ups and downs over the years, but since mid summer totally coverage in Berkeley has been absolutely AWFUL. Lots of drops and missed calls (right to voicemail), coverage holes (e.g. Marin from Albany border pretty much all the way up the hill, also northside and above campus). Forget about any kind of real-time data, in the time it takes Google maps to load a page you can get across town. Driving from Berkeley to SFO area I expect 5 or 6 drops - at least once getting to the freeway, again on the bay bridge near YB, couple more passing by downtown SF.. another at hospital curve. It's insane. The FCC&FTC need to start probing AT&T.. that, or I wish some class-action firm would get interested in bringing a case.

ATT in the same location with another BB was fine, no breakup - Sprint signal appears weaker in this specific spot, reception is spotty causing dropped words in conversation - Sprint is sending another phone, suspect it may be this phone - I will update if reception improves with the new phone, or leave this comment and just switch back to my previous carrier.

I've had AT&T for 6+ years, never had a dropped call but sometimes poor reception inside. They added or upgraded a tower near here in the last year. Now I get 4 bars in the house, and usually 4-5 walking around the neighborhood.
