0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Overhill Rd. | Glorietta Blvd., Orinda, CA 94563 |

Spoke to Verizon Technical Service - the are aware that there is no service in the Glorietta area. A service ticket is open to improve service but they cannot give an estimate of how long it will take to get the coverage improved.

Consistantly strong signal (4 bars) both outside and inside my house. No dropped calls. Used to have T-Mobile and a Nokia 6610 and constantly got dropped calls, and weak / no signal here.

Sprint really is the worst in the Oakland Hills. There is basically no service. I used to have Cingular and it worked fairly well, but its was no picnic either. I have found out that Verizon works the best. You can even get clear signal in Roberts Park and Tilden Park. I think I'll be moving to Verizon.

We get no reception in our house and have to go outside to use the cell phone. My husband (who uses a different phone than I do) gets no reception in his downtown SF office. We can carry on a conversation in the Berkeley flats, but it's never great.

Actually I get four bars but when I make a call, it gets crackly and the person on the other end can't hear me. This is in North Oakland, inside a small building, near a window. This happens in multiple locations in the East Bay: UC Berkeley campus (94720) Berkeley hills -- at a location supposedly served by a special Cingular tower, and five bars displaying Downtown Berkeley (94720) The Cingular sales guy says he never heard of this happened before ;[

Horrible Reception in my home, cannot use phone most of the time. Some spots in Alameda are just ok, most of Alameda is horrible. They said there is a cell tower 3 miles away and they have a range of 30+ miles. NO EXCUSE for the bad signal!!

Reception is very bad. Voice is so unclear and call is always dropped abruptly. Totally unacceptable.

A few years ago Verizon coverage in my house was Perfect. Maybe one dropped call over a period of 2 years. Over the past year coverage has degraded. When I'm on conference calls at home, I no longer feel comfortable using my cell phone because I keep getting, "Sorry, you're breaking up... can you repeat that?" or "I think I heard what you said. Let me repeat back and tell me if that's right." I'm somewhat tempted to try out Cingular since the time I tried my friend's phone in the house and around the neighborhood. She had almost full bars all around the house and on MLK going to Solano Avenue. But I have to say the reception was crackly. It was not as crisp and clear as what I get with my Verizon phone. Who knows-- maybe it was her phone (i.e. a different model with better RF would have sounded better). Anyway, my contract with Verizon is up in November, so MAYBE I'll check out Cingular.
