1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Ocean View Dr., Oakland, CA 94618 |

Sprint has been very poor on upper Ocean View Dr.(nr Broadway) for the last 5 years. It has been very good almost everywhere else. I switched to Verizon when the website said I was out of contract (this was not true, and I was charged an early termination fee). Verizon has been slightly better here and excellent almost everywhere else.

I find that Sprint is the only one that works at this location. ATT and Verizon calls get dropped, so I subscribe to Sprint. Have not had any problems for over 5 yrs.

Used to be no reception at all. Last year or so, I get many calls, though they are frequently dropped. Seems that walking out to the driveway improves odds of completing a short call, but still pretty dicey

No reception everywhere east of Arlington. I specifically chose a phone that has Analog mode because it at least has spotty reception.

Almost always have 5 bars. In foggy weather, sometimes reception does go down to 1-2 bars but I've generally been happy with the quality of reception of infrequency of dropped calls.

Reception is really dicey up here. Absolutely no consistency. Usually the best I can get is poor, garbled reception. A lot of dropped calls.

Poor at best. Drops lots of calls, often gives message "Out of Service Area". Keep it for use away from home where generally it works fine.

Lucky to get two bars in the house. Outside, a bit better. On week-ends, the service keeps dropping on and off, with no reception perhaps a minute at the time.

Verizon's coverage is fine. I will probably drop my hard wire line. Cingular was pretty good, but I am happier with Verizon reception. Their prices are also the highest.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Willow / South Shore | Shoreline, Alameda, CA 94501 |

In my apartment and around most of town, I get excellent reception. But a block away from home, on Shoreline, it's essentially useless all the way around to Otis and 8th. It's also occasionally and randomly roaming (on Lincoln in spots, in the Safeway in South Shore).
