0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Avondale St. | Bollinger Rd., San Jose, CA 95129 |

Avondale St. and Bollinger in West San Jose (95129) I have been very happy T-Mobile customer. It ringed everywhere in the US, China, Singapore, France, Geneva, Mumbai etc T-Mobile does not ring in my home or outside in San Jose. The repeated calls to their service has fetched no success. They offered me a 50 minute free time which is kind of useless if there is no reception. Anyone recommending other carriers for the above cross street?

Terrible reception for years. Logging a trouble ticket again with Verizon. Unsure if fire station next to Pearl Ave. library has anything to do with it.

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Fremont Ave. | Sunnyvale-Saratoga Rd., Sunnyvale, CA 94087 |

Very good here and elsewhere in Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Campbell, Palo Alto, etc. No dropped calls. Voice quality is almost always clear. Signal strength drops in a couple of spots along Mathilda Ave., but it's strong in most locations where I've checked so far, including inside buildings and under freeways.

Poor reception with TMobile, might be the convergent device PDA / Cell Phone, but frequent dropped calls.

This is a bad spot for almost all cellphone carriers, as on one side are hills and almost no cellphone coverage. Used to have Verizon (LX 4400). Very patchy service at home with call drops within one minute. Did the *228 thingy a few times, but no better results. Now switched to Cingular GSM and its amazing. Not only can I now hold a full call without call drop, but the call quality is amazing. It even passes the ultimate dead zone test (driving on Yerba Beuna between San Felipe to 101) and I was talking the entire time, without a single call drop or call quality impairment. It usually shows 2-5 bars at home. Some calls do get to voicemail without ringing, but over all much better reception than Verizon.

Since Cingular took over AT&T's towers, reception is great. All over San Jose I keep calls and never lose a single one. I've had Cingular for years and it would tick me off when I'd go up into the back hills of silver lake and have ZERO reception, now I have 4 bars!

needs a signal tower here or close by. Very bad signal reception. Even after the switch to Cingular towers, no good still. Maybe I have to switch to Cingular? I doubt there will be any change...
