went to the apple store today just to mess with the 3G phone (i have no intention of upgrading for a while). i wanted to do a side by side Edge vs. 3G comparison when i remembered that there's probably still no 3G coverage where the store is located. i figured i'd just ask about 3G coverage in the area just to see what the employees would say. Three different employees had no clue. One had to ask another. This is a simple, basic thing that all store employees should know. Either they are just clueless fools or are told to act dumb to hide the fact that there is no coverage in the area.
