Yeah, I'm getting a little bummed at their slow as hell data speeds in my area.
No matter how many times I use the mark the spot app I think there just going to buy out there way out of poor coverage. Laughing

If you're on Verizon, you should expect about 800 kbps on a consistent basis.

If you expected better, you bought the wrong phone.

No, I'm currently with ATT. And am starting to think there not going to do anything about their trouble spots until this buy out thing is done with.

Political pollsters question less than 0.001% of all voters in each election cycle, yet their predictions are right more than 90% of the time.

Very small samples can yield very good results when done properly.

If done improperly, even large samples are useless. If they had sampled 1.2 million iPhone users, but only 15 of the responders were Verizon customers- the data would be useless even though the sample size was huge.

Try taking an elementary statistics class before saying stupid things like that.

Do you think polling customers is an accurate way to determine a dropped call rate?

No.

But reality is irrelevant. Perception is what matters.

Polls show opinions. Only opinions. If a large portion of Volvo owners think Volvo's are awesome cars- that matters.

It doesn't matter how good the latest Ford is.

This survey (if accurate) shows nothing more then that AT&T iPhone owners in general think they drop more calls than Verizon iPhone owners.

Only AT&T leadership knows what the dropped call rates are, and whether the iPhone drops more calls than other AT&T handsets.

Good luck getting them to release those numbers.

Perception is reality? I guess that is why AT&T made those announcements about the network improvements in New York and San Francisco. It worked, too. The power of marketing. These two twins are going to be going at it for years trying to be the same.

I am almost sure that the VZW version of iPHONE4 addressed that antenna issue that was never fixed on the GSM version.

Not forgetting the network integrity issues that AT&T is famous (infamous) for there is a difference between the devices... the hardware is different...

It is what it is.
