Is the coverage in NYC getting any better?
U mean manhattan or the city of new York? Because I live in staten island so I would say it hasn't got much better but I always have coverage just not perfect coverage. and as for manhattan I'll be there tomorrow so I'll see.
I've heard it's gotten better in Manhattan recently. A year ago it was almost unusable.

Generally speaking, AT&T has definitely improved in NYC. I have an AT&T iPhone 4 and picked up a verizon model yesterday because I have a few "problem areas" where I do repeatedly get phone calls dropped and low signal. Low and behold, the verizon model barely got a signal in the same area, and kept switching between 1xRTT and 3G. And through and through, I find that AT&T 3G is significantly faster than Verizon when out and about, which has been reported everywhere.
Places I frequent for comparison:
UWS, hell's kitchen/central park south area, and Washington Heights. Also was on staten island yesterday and didn't discern a difference in signal quality near me and definitely saw the same speed difference.
It's spotty and unpredictable at best. Just to give you an idea, I was at my buddy's apt yesterday in Hell's Kitchen and he got full bars and 3G but in Soho, he barely got a signal and no 3G service.
I was in Manhattan a month ago. Service seems to have improved over 2 years ago. I would like to test verizon with my new one next time I'm out.
Seems to be problem in SoHo?
The service in NYC has improved dramatically over the last 2 years. They are constantly adding new cell sites in Manhattan.
