4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Almaden Expwy. | Capitol Expwy., San Jose, CA 95125 |

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.

I have had Metro PCS since they started business in this area. In the begining some of the phones that they offered weren't always of the best quality and there were a number of "black-holes". However, today, for the price, they are, hands down, the best cell phone company I've delt with. Their service is great and seems to improve every month. The reception is always great - I can't remember the last time I droped a call. The phones have improved ten-fold, and their customer service representatives are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and very responsive. I've yet to have a bad experience with any representative. I recommend Metro PCS to everyone and anyone looking to buy a cell phone or switch services.

One bar indoors, couple of bars outdoors. Hasn't yet dropped a call outdoors. Frequently drops calls indoors.

A few dropped calls. Reception along 101 is passable. Sometimes half-duplex, sometimes echoish. Customer service varies widely. My main gripe is the persistent belief that they are changing contract terms during the contract periods without notifying the customers. Billing problems, etc.

I am marking this as "average" based on the number of signal bars. However, I must add that I get NO dropped calls, NO straight to Vmail, my wireless web still works excellent with one or two bars and voice quality is always superb.

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.

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