    I have had the iPhone 4 for three weeks and this past week I have had literally 50% of my calls dropped. I called ATT today and had my call drop four times while I was on with them. The whole time, I had three or four bars and yes, I do have a bumper on the phone.

    Anyone else been having problems this weekend? I don't want to return the phone, but I cant have half of my calls dropping.

    I was in NYC for a show yesterday. I received a phone call before the show and within 30 seconds it was dropped. I called back, and the call was very broken and had the static-y noise in the background. This was the first time I've ever had a problem in NYC.

    Could this have anything to do with the network (upload speed) fixes AT&T has been patching every tower with recently? My local tower in Colorado was seemingly fixed 2 days ago (speed test cap of 100kbps upload was removed) but calls are now dropping like crazy and data isn't going through reliably now. I turned off 3G on the iPhone and calls/data are once again fine over Edge. Turning 3G back on causes the problem to immediately show up again.

    I thought it was an isolated issue with my tower but your post is making me question whether others are having similar issues. Of course it could be totally unrelated as well.

    I think I am going to go to apple and get them to replace the phone. Give them 30 more days to improve the call quality. I don't make that many calls, but I need to be able to retain 90-95% of my calls.
