4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Jasmine Circle | Altia / San Lucas, San Jose, CA 95135 |

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!

Travel a bit more down on Evelyn and the signal goes out.

I just signed up a new phone with Cingular for one year and get a new Motorola V180 phone. It work well when I used it on the streets one mile away from my home, but within one mile around my home area, I cannot receive any phone call or make any phone call, even I had 4 bars showing on my phone. I went back to Cingular dealer but they told Cingular just install a new tower in this area, however they cannot fix my problem.

Usually no reception outdoors, and inside, second level decent reception usually 2-3 bars. Often changes from ATT to Cingular networks, very annoying. Better in school areas.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Curie Dr. | Dunn Ave., San Jose, CA 95123 |

Usually 1 bar. Get about every other word when trying to use indoors (not good for my office-in-home). Some calls direct to VM. Must call forward all calls to my land line and pay extra for the privilege, not fair. Have newer phone on order, will see if it helps.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Hwy. 237-N. First St., Alviso, CA 95002 |

Usually get great reception at home. For some reason, it has started dropping calls upstairs in my office, where the computer is. I'm not sure if it's the service or my phone at this point... my phone is a year old now. I also get great reception at work, Hwy. 101 / Shoreline in Mtn. View.
