AT&T has released a new application for the iPhone called "Mark the Spot." The free application will allow iPhone users to provide AT&T with feedback about their network experiences via reports. Users can report dropped calls, failed calls, no coverage, data failure and poor voice quality, and rate how often these occur (once, seldom, often, or always). Users reports will be send to AT&T, and the customer will receive an SMS message acknowledging that the message was received. AT&T says this information gathered by users of this application will help it to provide "the best network experience possible." Mark the Spot works with iPhones running system software 3.0 and higher.
