1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Bladium Sports Club | Pan Am, Alameda, CA 94501 |

The reception on the west end of alameda is worse now than it has ever been. There are no bldgs to block signals. What is the story. Cingular needs to upgrade their signal strength badly.

Reception is above average outside, but call quality diminishes inside buildings in this area.

Never had a problem with Cingular's reception in my condo (Customer Service is another matter though... )

To add to the 94103 comment: These stairwells are hard handoff areas for BART / MUNI METRO stations downtown that have Sprint PCS coverage. Surface St.is Channel 100, while underground is Channel 75(?!). I suppose BART really can shut down underground wireless coverage. Got the info from my debug screen. Once your CDMA 1900 phone locks on to a consistent signal, you're good to go.

Pretty good reception except on West End and crossing the Bay Farm Bridge and of course, at home. Using headset and waving phone around trying to get reception. My clients get mad when they get dropped!

Can't use my cell phone at home. Have to go outside and walk a block to the beach to get any reception.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | 6800 Block Thornhill | Oakwood, Oakland, CA 94611 |

Until last week, was using older Ericsson phone on Cingular Service (maybe older version of Cingular) with NO reception on Thornhill above the 7-11. Now upgraded to new 2-yr contract with Cingular (probably newer version) with new Nokia 6102i phone with excellent reception all the way up Thornhill and in all rooms of house. Perhaps the newer phone is more sensitive. Conclusion... . dont blame the carrier without checking out their newest version and getting a more modern phone with better technology. Last week I was in a dark closet,,, now I can see the world!

Can't walk upstairs or downstairs without the call dying; sometimes it dies as I'm pressed to the window. Walk away from the window and I go to roaming. Crummy quality, hard to hear. I'm displeased with Sprint.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | 8th and Franklin, Oakland, CA 94607 |

Reception is OK in this part of the city. Usually I get 1-2 bars indoors (apt with concrete etc) and 2-3 bars outside. I think part of the problem is the tall buildings. Verizon should add an antenna or two near the dowtown area. Reception is better near 16th and Franklin and near Jack London Sq.
