I saw "may" because maybe this isn't an issue where you live but... I took the iPad in the car today (am actually in a parking lot posting this ) and was very curious how the signal would be compared to my iPhone 3GS. There is a stretch of road where my iPhone gets either very weak signal or no signal at all so I wanted to see how the iPad would handle it. Sure enough, as I drove...the iPhone went to 1 bar, the 3G icon disappeared, the went "Searching..."... came back to an "E" for a bit longer before 3G service came back. The iPad? SOLID through the whole stretch. Not only did it have 4 or 5 bars the whole time, but I ran the Speedtest.net App and got a consistent 1300 - 1400 Mbps download. I was very glad to see that as a lot of places that I go to and spend a lot of time waiting (like the main post office here in Phoenix when I do a bulk mailing) my iPhone would have no signal at all and I would just sit there on a chair for 30-45+ minutes. This also brings up another issue...the whole AT&T sucks argument seems like it's not so much that AT&T sucks but more like the iPhone sucks when it corms to signal.
