0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Canal / brickyard Cove | Canal / garrard, Richmond, CA 94801 |

T-moble states they are not responsible for any 'gap" in service. We have not been able to receive service for 1 month [May 22] after 2+years for fairly good service. If I drive about 1 mile from Brickyard Cove / Pt. Richmond I do recieve service. I, unfortunately lost my phone in April and as a result of buying a new Razor3 phone now am locked in to a 2 year contract! The service folks are morons... a great racket. Must talk with service support; they send you to the RAXOR3 guys_you take out the battery, read the SIMM number; They send out a service guy in 3 days. Nothing happens.You call back... Talk to Remove your battery, give the SIM number, get passed to etc. They will not provide an answer or agree to identify / fix the problem or release us from the contract. Two other familes on my block have had to change from T-Mobile to Verizon in the last month or so for this problem. They had no problem with the contract because they had not lost a phone recently. HORRIBLE SERVICE! NO SERVICE!

I get pretty much no reception downstairs. Upstairs is better, but the sound is still choppy, and if the conversation lasts more than 3 minutes it has close to a 50% chance of being dropped.

Not very good reception indoors. Usually zero to 2 bars, many lost calls. Reception is much better in Berkeley.

I can only get calls upstairs and while hanging my head out the East facing window. Across the street is much better.

Sometimes I will have 4 bars but that is usually "off-hours". Many times the call will drop or become unintelligable (after the signa strength has dropped to 1 bar). I usually have to leave the phone next to the bedroom window and use my Bluetooth headset when on the phone. There appears to be no EDGE coverage -- only GPRS and GSM. Hopefully the service providers will read these comments and do something about the less-than-acceptable coverage in this area. Not sure what carrier just installed a cell tower at Mountain and Ascot but it didn't seem to help with Cingular service.

Inside the home, the reception is erratic; sometimes you get it sometimes you do not. I have waljked all over the studio trying to find the best reception are without success. I never experienced dropped call until I moved to this zip code.

The reception on this model is horrible. You can rest assured that if making or recieving calls in the area of 12th Av and East 22nd st all the way down to Park blvd your call will drop. Also, it doesn't work inside in these areas either. Most times I'm not able to use my phone until I'm actually on interstate 580 in either direction. However, it doesn't get any better once you transition onto Interstate 80 eastbound until you get to the city of Albany. From that point all the way to Vallejo it does fine.

During calls, reception jumps between 2 and 4 bars, making for a choppy conversation. Until fairly recently I had clear reception here. I bought my phone from AT&T before they merged with Cingular.

There is a hill nearby with an EBMUD holding tank - a perfect place for a transmitting tower...

Works fine, but signal is always between poor and good hardly ever perfect seems like the network here, Verizon which they use is only ok.
