AT&T Wireless (TDMA)

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Hearst Ave. | Euclid Ave., Berkeley, CA 94709 |

AT&T TDMA is okay in Berkeley, rarely more than three bars. But it's okay, reception in widespread even though call quality is below average - reception is better than most carriers (only Nextel and Verizon are better, though they are MUCH better) in this area. AT&T GSM is not even worth considering, like Cingular or Sprint, just useless from what I've experienced. I'll soon switch to Verizon because it has better reception and call quality for the same cost as AT&T TDMA (plus much better phones are available for no cost, I'll be getting the Samsung A530 (or A670 with a camera).

I recently bought AT&T's GSM network and I have had nothing but great service everywhere I have gone. Works in places my old Nextel phone wouldnt have even gotten a bar of service. And now becuase of their merge with Cingular, I have only not gotten service on BART, but besides that great service AT&T!

Cell phone reception sucks! I had Nextel and T-Mobile which both worked fine here, but Cingular is for the birds!

I bring my cellphone in class and when i go outside on campus i still get no reception. I just don't get it, there are no electrical wires to make difficulty but only clear skies. NO reception, talk about rollover might as well give us free minutes because i always have to call people back. Verizon is even better inside buildings. My dead zones are classrooms!

It's about a C- rating in terms of reception. I get all kinds of dropped or missed calls. It made me think that GSM sucked.

There is no reception at all. This is in the middle of the city.
