Near webster and central, I will get reception if I stand in one spot, but if I move, the signal is lost. It only gets better over near park street and that for me is only about 2 bars and still not great reception.

I have Verizon and occasionally get one bar but it's not enough to get or receive a call. They said I could cancel without penalty. I don't think anyone gets reception here. I got good reception when I lived on Snake Road.

Reception veers wildly from 5 bars to zip and back, inside or out. Every other call drops. We must be at the edge of a reception area; CDMA area retracts toward tower as call load increases.

Reception varies from day to day. Always bad though.Always drop every call too. I also hear myself talk back a lot when talking to someone.i called Cingular and they said the signal should be fine. It is not!

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!
