    One of the features of 2.2 is decreased call setup failures and call drops. I was wondering if people who use their phones more than me are seeing an improvement.

    I had called Apple last night and opened a case to have my iPhone replaced @ the Genius Bar tonight for dropped calls / wild signal fluctuations.

    Thought I would check 2.2 out. Sure enough, first call fails.

    When you have dropped calls, are you usually on 3G or EDGE?

    I am in an area (North Phoenix) with 3G & 5 bars & I get dropped, poor quality calls a lot. I have not upgraded to 2.2 yet.

    Not a statistically relevant test for sure, but at my work desk where every other call would have audio dropouts or calls failing, my iPhone 3G 2.2 seems to be handling calls much better in the 3 calls I have tried so far. No audio drop outs and definitely no dropped/failed calls.

    Not calling it a definite improvement yet (I could just be plain lucky or not breathing right), but it is a solid start.

    I have the off and on thing
    but never had drop calls

    It was an issue to me when I call long distance back :(

    it seems after 2.2 I get 3G where I did not use to get it.

    There was an area where I always had a call drop with full 3G and so far it has not done that after 2.2

    Certain parts of my building I would loose 3G and it would go to E. But now it does not go to E anymore. Heck I don't ever see it going to E unless its an area I know that does not have 3G.

    So I think 2.2 did something good for me at least. Only time will tell though.
