Most of the time I get 3-4 bars out of 4 in my apartment. Very clear and never dropped calls.

Usually unable to receive calls inside my house. My Nokia 3395 works better, but not perfectly.

Verizon is the best in the Bay Area. Just signed for another 2 years. Hopefully in 2 years the competition will catch up so we have some real choices. As it stands now, the competition's reception is spotty compared to Verizon.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Story | Fleming, San Jose, CA 95127 |

Usually drop calls along Fleming. Once I get to the house though (a mere block off of Fleming) I get 3-4 bars. Go figure. Cingular in general has been pretty good, but I do wonder about other services.

If I had to rank carriers: 1. Sprint, 2. Verizon, 3. T-Mobile 4. ATT / Cingular. Verizon is about as expensive as Sprint with good coverage and reception that is great in the Bay if you are calling someone in the Bay or vice versa. However for some reason when people call from out of state - to them it sounds as if you're talking inside a soda can with quality randomly getter better or worsening. Given the similarity in price with Sprint. It makes more sense to go with Sprint if you're paying for a Verizon plan. If you want to pay less and you're willing to get a plan that's not as good as Verizon but not as horrible as ATT / Cingular - T-Mobile is a good choice.

T-Mobile is pretty decent in the Bay Area. There are a few dead spots (BART tunnels, a part of San Jose) but overall coverage has good reception. If you're rich, you're probably better off with Sprint.

So-so reception here, gets lost a lot. Reception dies once you go down on San Felipe and Yerba Buena.

I've been having dropped call issues numerous times over the past week... wonder if the merge has made things worse?
