1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Pomeroy | Brookdale, Santa Clara, CA 95051 |

Reception on AT&T all throughout the Valley is completely hit or miss, plus even when you do have signal you're lucky to be able to make a call. Even though they claim I have 3G coverage here, I don't get any 3G, only 1 bar of EDGE if I am lucky. At home I have to hold my AT&T phones up to the window to get service, doesn't matter which model I use, I have 6 or 7 different AT&T phones and they all get horrible reception.

Pathetic reception outside and inside the house. If I'm lucky I'll get 2 bars. Most of the time calls go to voicemail directly.

My cell service in Alum Rock Area is absolutely horrible with AT&T (formerly Cingular). And I thought they had the fewest dropped calls? I'm thinking of paying 175 to cancel my account and switch to Verizon...

Most of the time I get Zero to 1 bars and sometimes no signal at all. It is really bad that we cannot get any signal all in the hills. Move 1 / 2 mile down the hill and the signal is good to excellent. Hope they put up a cel site near the hills.

Cell reception is very poor inside or outside my house. Phone: Motorola V710 Carrier: Verizon Almost every call gets dropped. Except for the call that I made to Verizon to complain. Mysteriously that call sustained for 10 minutes. This is unacceptable in a big city such as Fremont. I will be dropping Verizon service shortly.

If I'm on the east side of the house there is OK reception. If I walk around there is a good chance my call will drop. Varies from 0-2 bars.

Cingular has TERRIBLE reception in the area near Santa Clara University. Whenever I'm indoors, I always get dropped called, which is kind of ironic since Cingular's ads always say that they have the least dropped calls. Furthermore, whenever I try to call someone, I have to try countless times before I even manage to call through. When I eventually manage to get through, the reception is VERY bad and I can hardly hear what the other person is saying. It just sounds like this, "Hello? *insert 5 seconds of NOTHINGNESS* Hello? *insert another 5 seconds of hearing absolutely nothing at all* HELLO?? ARE YOU THERE? *gets disconnected*" I'm definitely switching to Verizon or T-Mobile. Shame on you, Cingular!

Improved slightly over the last few years but still could be better. Overall Cingular advertises the fewest dropped calls, so I have to really wonder how bad all the other providers are since I get dropped calls all the time all over San Jose. Time to try someone else.

Cingular / AT&T is dead 0 bar indoors, terrible outdoors (with different phones from Siemens, SE and Samsung). Spring has 3+ bars clear and stable reception at any location indoors.
