1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Gateview | Ave. B, San Francisco, CA 94130 |

Can rarely make / receive any calls on this part of the island. The only hope is to do so outside or by walking around the island till you find a place where the signal is favorable. Unfortunately, Sprint seems wholly unaware of Treasure Island's existance when you try to call and find out whether they have any plans for any towers on either Treasure Island or Yerba Buena Island at any point. Unfortunately, it seems most carriers are not much better on Treasure Island...

Sprint is useless at this location essentially on the ridge above Skyline about a half mile south of Skyline HS.

I live up Golf Links off of Elysian Fields in Oakland. Reception normally cuts off when I start the trek up Golf Links right at the Zoo, in the first turn, it really doesn't work at all after that point, my calls just go to voicemail. Hopefully this helps somebody. My friend also has Sprint with a better model phone. A tri mode phone and it works 35 percent better than mine but they drop calls constantly as well. The only carriers that work better are Metro and Verizon, In Oakland Metro uses some of the Verizon towers, so that is all that I know about this area. Very Very Poor reception with sprint.

I have used Sprint for at least 3 years. I get some dropped calls but not that often. I used to think that Sprint was not a very good carrier, but after reading all of the comments on other carriers, I think it is much better than I gave it credit for. Sprint seems to work well in SF, downtown parts of Oakland and much of East Bay. It is very poor in Oakland hills. Nothing I read in comments convinced me that any other carrier is better, or as good, in this area. I'm sticking with Sprint.

I love my Metro! I get good reception everywhere in Berkeley. I've dropped my phone like a dozen times. I barely ever recharge the battery, and I have unlimited minutes. Metro is a land line mabye thats why.

Sprint gets very poor reception in the University Village in Albany, and gets mediocre reception on campus.

I get great reception at home, but only a few blocks south, near the border between El Cerrito and Richond up to about Garvin, there's a huge dead spot with absolutely no reception.

I get terrible reception, and sometimes none at all. Many dropped calls. I have the same problem at work near Claremont Ave and Ashby. It was the same with AT&T and with my previous Nokia.
