    Or anywhere else for that matter outside the US as i've never experienced a 'dropped call'.
    If it only appears to be an issue in the US then we can put it down to the piece of crap AT&T network and quit saying **** like, "LOLZ the iPhone is a phone that can't even make calls".

    I've never had a dropped call in the UK that can't be put down to just going into a 'known' no signal area. This is with both numerous iPhones over the years, and a vast number of other phones.

    I also only get dropped calls in 'known' blackspots and somewhere I know why I get dropped calls

    Don't think I've ever had a dropped call, even with the antenna problems of my ip4.

    Yeah I have since upgrading to iPhone 4. In my innocence I didn't really get what a "dropped call" was until recently - obviously if you're in a train going through a tunnel or something, then if you're in the middle of a call you get cut off.
    However, now with my magical new iPhone 4, I can be standing in a nice open place with apparently a good signal (the display says 4 bars - who knows what that actually means) and while talking to someone on the phone I get three little beeps, then when I look at the phone screen it says "Call Failed" with a retry button. This did not happen with my old iPhone 3G.

    It's a really great feature and all my friends are very impressed :rolleyes:
    In fairness though, if I hold the phone in a really unnatural way (ie unlike in all the Apple videos for the iPhone 4) I can avoid the antenna issue. Not really ideal though!
