Treo 650 - Cingular or Verizon??

Verizon: I currently have my 3rd Treo since May of this year. I live only a few blocks from downtown San Francisco and every carrier gets full bars in my apartment. All of a sudden I start dropping calls (more dropped calls in 1 week than the previous 14 months on Veri...
