No real problems roaming around Alameda and Oakland for most of the past year. Have had a few dropped calls lately though. Terrific reception in my apartment on the West End. Unlike my neighbor who has Verizon, I don't need to go outside and walk around to talk!

Just switched from Verizon to AT&T do to poor reception last month and needless to say it has bars every where I go to around here in the downtown berkeley area. Up and down university, telgraph even side streets in parts of North Berkeley by the BART it works at. Way to go AT&T.

Cingular / AT&T seems to be the only company with consistant reception on campus. It's not perfect, but what cell carrier is?!

along arlington in the hills, reception with Cingular is marginally better than with sprint. Sprint was horrible, but I still can't have anything beyond very brief conversations on my cell with cingular, and data connection is constantly dropping and re-establishing.

At work, my signal alternates between full bars and no bars every couple of seconds, and many calls go straight into voicemail. What gives? I also noticed that AT&T gets better reception in underground MUNI / BART stations.

Verizon is the best in coverage. I do not need to carry 2 phones.

This used to be a dead zone until a couple of months ago. The T-Mobile web site coverage map shows all of its cell towers. It doesn't seem to show this upgraded service as of yet.

I usually get only 1 or 2 bars at home, with lots of dropped calls. I work near the intersection of Otis and Grand. My reception at work has improved to 3's and sometimes 4's. Still have dropped calls and poop[r sound quality.
