    Oh yeah, well, as of yesterday my 3G coverage disappeared between 5pm & midnight, and remains to go in and out of service today....:mad:

    We don't even get 3G in central Illinois where I live, but I still have to pay for the 3G rate plan which is an additional 10 dollars over the initial iPhone rate plan before 3G. You gotta love AT&T.

    I live in Minnesota too, and imo, AT&T has the largest 3G footprint out of any provider. Extends to the boonies! I've had 3G pretty much everywhere, even Forest Lake.

    Best 3g? No. I live in a city and we have edge only. (Wilmington,NC) Yet they are improving charlottes 3g when we don't even have it yet. Oh well. It doesn'y affect me right now as I have Verizon until my contract ends. (4more months! still too long), then I will have my iphone. My sister has a 3g and it is so slow on AT&T's network.

    3G is quick for me here in Minnesota. And is practically everywhere.

    I also live in MN and I get 3G service at home (the cities), but not in Southern MN where I go to school. It'd be awesome if it would expand down there. I think Rochester has 3G, but that's 45 mins away.

    Last semester at school I only had EDGE, this year though 5 bars of 3G.

    Mostly pointless for me personally since I use the schools WiFi but I'm sure there are a few souls around there that are happy to have 3G.

    AT&T put out a news brief that one of the cities close to me would have it by the end of last year...still waiting.

    For the love of god there is no such thing as a "3G rate plan". :rolleyes:
    You have a "Data plan". AT&T doesn't differentiate EDGE from 3G. It's all data.

    AT&T has a unique data and text package that only applies to the 1st gen iPhone. The package does not apply to a subsidized 3G iPhone.
    If you had a first gen iPhone, you would still be paying $20 per month.

    With other networks preparing for 4g, it’s good to see AT&T is almost getting 3g done correctly. :eek:

    My small Georgia town is still chugging along with Edge. I don't expect 3G to get here any time in the next few years.
