We are looking some information about quality of T-Mobile reception in Outer Sunset in San Francisco. For example, are there any towers around?

We know that both AT&T and Verizon have bad quality but AT&T has microcell so things work ok.

So my question is: What is T-Mobile reception in Outer Sunset in San Francisco?
Or, how can I figure out what is T-Mobile reception in Outer Sunset in San Francisco?
Is there a map T-mobile towers around here (maybe on 19th Ave)?

My experience saids VZW has the best reception in SF. Not sure how you came to the conclusion that is it bad.

I was having a conversation with an ex-manager at AT&T yesterday and he said the city isn't approving any new T-Mobile towers in San Francisco, so the reception is even worse than AT&T. I don't know for sure, he did work at AT&T, so there may be some biased, but he pretty much said AT&T already sucks, but T-Mobile even sucks more. I don't have any personal experience with T-Mobile in San Francisco though. I'm sure you will still have bars though.

Huh? I've got Verizon. In fact, switched from TMo to Verizon when their wifi failed me when I was at a conference at Moscone. (Yes, Moscone has wifi but it was slammed. Alas, TMo's wasn't even working.)

Verizon pretty much has the best signal from coast to coast and this I know because I drove cross country and used a Verizon mobile hotspot to work and stay connected.

Anyway, none of this answers your question on TMo in the Outer Sunset. I live in Parkside and my Verizon signal works just fine where I am. In fact, I set up a phone number and I'm going to cancel it because I don't need a landline.

Friend in the Richmond says it's patchy - no service in his apartment, decent down the block, but never really fast like you see outside the city.

You should consider going with an MVNO for a month, test out the signal in the places you spend the most time. That'll be cheaper and not lock into a contract.

Tmobile works pretty well for me with a Galaxy Nexus in the sunset.

Type in the street & you can see the coverage map.

Some pockets are better than others. It really depends on the specific street location. Find someone with tmobile in the specific block(s) you are concerned about to get a better answer as the maps only tell you so much.
