?

in the SF Bay area? on the shore, on a boat, in wild areas of SF Bay

I hate it when I'm out there on the shoreline just a hundred feet from civilization and I can't even get enough bars (reception). I'm using cheap Virgin Mobile.

thanks in advance

I know the capt. of the Primetime (Ryan) uses t-mobile and his service is fairly decent, except at the Islands and one spot near Alcatraz. I use either Metro or Verizon and they work, but when outside the gate become a little problematic.

Guys are you considering: your service area boundaries, structural interference like trees, walls that have metal content like stucco, rebar, aluminum. Being blocked by a grove of trees or surrounding mountains. Also, the type of antenna your phone uses and the power supply. Keep in mind that the old school phones that were connected to large power supplies and had external antennaes provided better reception even in difficult reception areas such as tunnels or underground.
