Great coverage! Better than Sprint in the Bay. When it has no bars it still works perfectly. Some drop spots but works well in those places it works everywhere time to switch to Metro if you live in the bay.

If I stand outside on my balcony, I can usually squeeze out another bar. I'm getting really tired of dropped and unconnected calls.

Have had several Sprint phones, all had excellent reception at my home and throughout Montclair with the exception of some areas on or near Skyline Blvd. Currenly using a Treo 650 (solid reception no drops) and a Samsung A900 (solid reception) my wife has used several Sprint Samsung models all with good reception. I was given a Verizon phone for work (no signal at my home) switched models to the most expensive phone they had with allegedly good reception... still no signal at my home.

Constantly wavering zero to three bars, with frequent dropped calls. My wife and I both have LG flip phones from Verizon and experience the same lousy signal quality throughout the Upper Rockridge and Broadway Terrace neighborhoods. The dead spots get worse as you head up the Oakland hills near the Caldecott Tunnel.

As soon as I enter the "Bermuda Triangle" between Gilman street and University, I don't even try to answer or place calls, because I know I'll get dropped! I've gone through 3 phones with similar bad luck, so I don't think it's the phone.

Sprint sucks so much azz. I've gone thru three phones in the last year, and Sprint uses each phone change as an excuse to lock me into another 2 year contract. All the while, the reception is horrible. Any 5+ min conversation has a 50% chance of dropping the call. The voice quality is muffled and robotic-y. Avoid at all cost. I wish I had.

I usually have no reception in my home. On occasion a call will come through and I can hear the caller but the caller can not hear me. If I stand near my kitchen window it helps sometimes and I'm able to hold a quick conversation. Some days I'm able to talk when I'm upstairs (surprisingly to me). The reception behaves as if it is blocked on most days but every now and then the airwaves are free. There have been few occasions when I sat at my computer and held full conversations with no reception problems. (I don't understand it either!)

I had Sprint and in did not work in my house on the West End. I moved here and it didn't work here either. I noticed the real estate agent talking on my phone. She told me Verizon is the only one that works well in Alameda. I am very pleased with it. The only place it hasn't worked is inside Pagano's Hardware store. It also works great in big box stores like Costco.

Since Cingular and AT&T merged my signal hardly works. If I call back 3 or 4 times I usually get a better signal. The company says its a connectivity problem probably caused buy an over loaded cell tower. They will work on it when they have time
