    Took my lunch at the house today so I could update to 2.1

    I figured, since the iPhone is a phone…first and foremost…I wanted to give my results on the 3G reception issue that’s been discussed endlessly. Please copy/paste (or re-type if you’re posting from an iPhone…sigh) the format below and let everyone else know where you stand.

    Dial: *3001#12345#* to view the db in the upper left corner of your phone


    Location: Dallas, TX
    3G coverage by ATT in Dallas: 100%

    Before 2.1 (edge): 4-5 bars visible; db -79 to -83
    After 2.1 (edge): 4-5 bars visible; db -79 to -83

    Before 2.1 (3g): 0-1 bars; db -97 to -107
    After 2.1 (3g): 4-5 bars; db -97 to -107

    Conclusion: no difference with edge; only the graphical representation changed with 2.1 for 3g…signal strength remains the same.
