No, it's not the network that I can blame, it's the hardware/software of the Iphone that is just horrid in holding a signal. I have dropped a total of 24 calls in five days throughout Southern California using the 101 Freeway. On my last business trip, I took my V9M and Iphone together so I could really test it out. The V9M smoked the Iphone silly when it came to call quality and holding a signal. Get this...I actually called Apple Tech Support from the freeway while I was in traffic( In Burbank)and the guy just could not believe how crappy the call was. I then asked him to call my v9m, to my surprise, he did. He could not believe the difference in call quality....it was huge!! Apple Tech Support, if you get an honest rep, will now a...

I got to agree with the upper 2 comments. No dropped calls for me in NYC. I've actually gotten service in areas where I had no Verizon service. Guess you lucked out bro.

No dropped calls here, it must be your phone or something you are doing.

I have had no problems here. Reception has been on par with my e815 when I was using Verizon. No dropped calls and no problems making/receiving calls.

When I was with Verizon, I would miss many calls that went straight to voice mail. It hasn't happened with the iPhone yet.

Hmmm... it's not the network? So you're comparing a V9m (CDMA phone) to a iPhone (GMS phone)? Or does Motorola made a V9M that works on ATT's GSM network that I'm not aware of?

I also have lots of dropped calls here in the Metro DC area but I've tested the iPhone vs a V3i and both drop the call at the same points with ATT. The V3i on TMobile works fine with no dropped cal...
