Apple iPhone 3G
Apple already replaced the phone but that didn't fixed the issue.
a. dropping calls
b. poor reception
c. prongs on the charger breaking off in the wall socket
d. poor 3g reception (this is more of AT&T's fault because the coverage map for 3g voice is TERRIBLE. even in NYC which is where most of my calls used to come from)
if you guys have a chance to take it back within the 30 days. DO IT.
I can't believe that you work for AT&T and you're coming in to gripe about your own carrier's phone!
And to try to say that it's more the iPhone is retarded. If you work for AT&T you know that they are the WORST about dropping calls.. GSM in general is crappy about that.
The prongs on the charger was a factory defect in a small percentage of the chargers.. defective products are discovered EVERY DAY.
I'm not an apple "fangirl," but you can't blame your crappy company's reception on a phone.
BTW..I should know. I carry one.
The reception out there is horrible, and in terms of the iphone, you get what you pay for, they didn't improve on much from the first phone, what makes people think they are going to have better reception, that is why I have bought unlocked SE phones, SE and Nokia just make better phones.
Having said that, I truly believe it is an iPhone issue since AT&T has a superb coverage in St Paul and I rarely got any dropped calls before I switched to iPhone.
1-- the ATT 3G service map is a total lie -- there is zero service in major parts of this important financial community -- I have NEVER gotten a 3G signal since I got the phone in July
2 -- last week I was in Boston and had 11 dropped calls in 3 hours, and then had 6 dropped calls driving back to CT.
ATTs service is abyssmal. I called 4 times and they always say they'll check and clal back and never do.
I'm filing a lawsuit in small claims for a refund of my monthly charges on grounds that their map is a fraudulent misrepresentation. I recommend the same
Push ATT that you don't pay until they deliver what they promise in their maps and service agreements.
I am ready to file a complaint with the FCC. Their Ads promise the best coverage with the least dropped calls. This is a lie.
I pay good money to have their service and that is going to stop.
