I just want to see how many MacRumor members have and don't have AT&T 3g in their area.
I've got perfect 3G everywhere except where I work in Northern Virginia.
I have it everywhere, but I keep it turned off most of the time (for battery life).
3G everywhere for me
I know I have 3G coverage everywhere in my area. I have the first iPhone so I don't know how fast or reliable 3G is yet. I am getting iPhone 3GS in a few weeks so I can determine it then. My friend who has an iPhone 3G says it is just as fast or a bit faster than EDGE (hard for me to believe even though EDGE is kinda fast in my area.) I loaded up a YouTube video on another friend's iPhone 3G using the 3G network. As expected, quality sucked because of limitations Apple and AT&T put on videos streaming on cellular data. The video loaded extremely fast, probably more than 2X faster than my iPhone on EDGE. Based on this, it is too hard to tell. I will keep u posted if u remind me earlier in the month.
I always have 3G. I live about 40 minutes outside of Pittsburgh. I have never seen my phone go to edge before (I've only had it 2 months though )
No, I don't, and I live in an area with over 100,000 in the metro. There's 3G an hour and half away though. I can't believe we haven't got it in this area of Louisiana yet. WTF!
I can't recall the last time I didn't have 3G...
I can't believe I just read this lol
We have pretty good 3G here in north San Diego County now...still spotty in the inland areas but the coast is pretty well covered...
I have pretty good 3G coverage here, although there are also a few spots where cell reception is spotty (But I don't typically drive that way, so it doesn't effect me very often). I live about an hour north of San Diego.
Nearest 3G is ~10 miles from my house, and it isn't much faster than EDGE...
None here and I'm in the fourth most populous area in Pennsylvania. My only guess as to why we don't have it is that AT&T swallowed up Cellular One. AT&T has very little presence prior to that. I imagine this could be an issue of equipment but I would have they'd have caught up by now.
Just got it earlier this year around here.
Yup! Full 3G reception everywhere I go within 20 miles from here, haven't gone further yet.
We got 3G here the Monday before the 3GS launch. I'm loving the extra speed all around town.

We have it everywhere I've seen in and around Detroit, MI. I live about 45 minutes away in the suburbs and we have perfect 3G.
Also, I went to Orlando, FL on vacation and they had spotty 3G in and around the city.
Luckily, I live about 30 minutes away from Baltimore, thus giving me wifi throughout my entire area. Now, when I'm on the road it switches from 3G to Edge to GPRS then back to 3G. It's weird, but I live with it!
no 3g here (between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine) and I think if it hasnt come thru yet it wont at all. Luckily I never spend time here and the area i work and hang out in has solid 3g everywhere i go, which is 20 miles from my house
I've got 3G in the mid-hudson valley region of New York.
Didn't have it when I first got the 3G phone last year, I think it showed up near the end of the winter this year.
I used to do that with my 3G. I only turned on 3G when I needed quicker data. I always kept location services off, as well as wifi when I wasn't at home. The end result was many days of battery life.
Conversely, on the new phone I've left all that turned on and feel the difference of frequent trips to the charger.
When the original iPhone came out I got one and returned it after a day because I did not like how slow it was.
Now I have an iPhone 3G S⃣ (32 GB) and it is fast on 3G. Websites come up within seconds and e-mail retrieval is way faster. Actually I am impressed.
3G everywhere here on the planet (island) of Jupiter (Oahu, Hawaii).
Here in Henderson, Nevada my iPhone seems to pick up 3G no matter what part of town I am in.
