On my phone v60s I get 5 bars. On my wifes phone, she gets 4 bars with a broken antenna. Reception drops as I move into the house as can be expected. A few times, I've been able to hear the person calling but can't speak. Almost all calls get through without delay. Have not experience dropped calls at this location. My wife has had many dropped calls in San Jose. Sometimes I get voice mail from months ago for calls from out of state. Verizon at this location with this phone has been very good, but it is more expensive than T-mobile.

Poor to no reception inside this 2nd floor apartment. The one or two spots in the apartment where I do get 1 bar are still not guaranteed spots, sometimes I won't get a bar even there... need to switch providers. I moved from Michigan where the T-Mobile reception was amazing... I guess things are different here.

The stretch from San Felipe to Silver Creek on Yerba Buena (somewhat hilly area), you are guaranteed to loose the call. No signal between silver creek and 101 (almost close to 101).

I used Sprint PCS and ATT TDMA in the past. Sprint almost always failed at my home. But at work and on the major highways, it worked decently. The quality of the call on the highways was pretty decent. With ATT TDMA, when I originally got it (over 2 years ago), was not that bad. At home, I was able to make and receive calls but calls get dropped quite often. I put up with it because of the contract. I got Verizon couple of months ago after seeing a friend of mine living in the same area be happy with it (except for the high price compare to the competition). In my case, I wasn't as lucky. I don't know if it is because of the phone model (Samsung a670) I am using, but the signal strength seem to fluctuate quite a bit. Sometimes, it I get 4 bars but in the same location a second later, I don't get any bars. This became a frustrating problem. I wish the guy in the Verizon ad check my neighborhood

I work and live on Gallaudet Dr. right by California school for the Deaf, and California School for the blind. Reception is poor on both Cingular (gsm) and ATT (gsm). I have to go right by thwindow to get a descent (1-2 bar) reception. with Nextel I had no problem.

AT&T / Cingular is great for me all over the bay area. I don't know why people don't get good reception in the bayarea. My advice: Get a good phone with both 850 and 1900 Mhz bands.

Great reception. Better indoors than SprintPCS in this area, where many times I could not get a signal. I recently switched from Sprint to a smartphone for SMS messaging, and haven't regretted it. SprintPCS is a great service, probably slightly better than AT&T in call quality and price, but their lack of international SMS and nice phone models was really the deciding factor for leaving. I was lured away by the Int. SMS and the Motorola Razr V3, but ended getting the SMT 5600 instead, and couldn't be happier. Neat freakin gadget.
