I'm curious if anyone else in the Phoenix metro area is having problems. About 1 1/2 weeks ago (maybe 2 weeks) I noticed having more dropped calls on my Blackberry. My business partner was having some problems on his Motorola phone. Anyway, on Friday I was talking to the COO of another subsidiary of my company that said he had to run out early to get to the AT&T store because he thought that the iPhone was having an issue. Apparently his one and NINE others were ALL experiencing the same issue. He thought perhaps it had been an update that he was not aware of since the issue was happening for an extended period. I stopped him and told him about my and my partner's phone. He called AT&T and they said they were not experiencing any outages (BTW, this is in Tempe, AZ about 2 miles from ASU). I was then driving home and I called my wife a couple of times and she didn't answer. Finally she answered and she said that she was on the phone with AT&T (she did not know of the issues I was experiencing). She said that she was having issues with her LG phone. I told her about the issues and she swapped back over to the AT&T representative. At this time AT&T ADMITTED (for once in my lifetime) that there WAS a problem, though it was isolated to Scottsdale. They said the problem was specific to 3G only. That would explain why my business partner's phone didn't work at his house, but not why the other phones in Tempe didn't work, and why my wife was experiencing a problem in Gilbert. Figured I'd throw this out there in case anyone else was having an issue. Over the weekend I switched my Blackberry to the 2G (EDGE) network from the auto setting (2g/3g). I'm not sure if the iPhone allows you to switch this but if you're having the issue it has proven to be a good long term bandaid as I now have a functioning phone. ATT doesn't have an update and just said they escalated it to a "senior engineer" that will investigate the problem. They said that there isn't an outage at any tower and that the issue is "bigger than that". Not sure how much of this is BS.
