I find coverage in Toronto is excellent. I don't think I've experienced a dropped call in a year. Although I get kicked down to GPRS from EDGE every now and again, you have to realize that downtown Toronto is nothing but tall buildings and obstructions. And on top of that, everyone around you is on their blackberry. I spend time in Manhattan's financial district and Toronto's financial district on a regular basis and I can honestly tell you that I see several times more data capable phones (and more specifically blackberries) being used on the street in Toronto than anywhere else I've been. We are data crazy-- You are bound to run into some service glitches (if you can call it that). Despite that, I always have a signal and always have connectivity. Having a slightly slower data connection every now and again doesn't harm me. I still get my messages and it doesn't last for long.
Blackberry Curve (8300r) on Rogers (Toronto, ON) with hosted BES. Previously: 8700r and 7290.
