I live in Las Vegas, NV, and I have 4 or 5 bars across the entire city.
Its non existant.
Wow, consistent for all (except "didn't opt for 3G).
I live in a suburb of Atlanta....Usually only 1 bar indoors.
Round where I live it's EPIC FAIL.
My village is a blackhole for most reception. Head a mile down the road and it's there, but I don't use it at home off wifi anyways.
However, with the Cloud and BT Openzone in O2's WiFi offering, there are more than enough access points nearby.
mines non-existent (in UK here)
although i do live in a very rural village. about 5 mins on the bus to the nearest town or city i quickly start getting it.
UK O2 signal is fine, I get signal and even at its lowest bars I still get a pretty fast speed.
4 to 5 bars all the time.
I'm not sure how my little Okie town has such good 3G service but it is nice.
it is extremely good in and around my house and school
drive 20 minutes away and it turns into only EDGE
No 3G coverage in my town of 35,000 people.
Drive 30 minutes south and start getting Full 3G bars.
Little Okie Town? Tulsa, OK. is anything but Little.
It is the 45th largest city in the United States.
No 3G signal for our area - the closest 3G area is about an hour away...
No 3G here.. maybe an hour away.. but I got my 3G iPhone.. woo
I have solid 3G coverage in Bellevue, WA. However, the Pioneer Square area in Seattle, WA is completely the opposite, I can barely get any signal whatsoever.
In the LA area the coverage can be patchy, by that I mean there will be 2-3 block segments with only EDGE coverage, but everything around that has 3G. I also notice that "the bars" change much more than it ever did with older generation networks. I often see it with 0 bars with 3G coverage, 3 bars, and sometimes full. Actually the only place I've seen it with a full 5 bars is at my house, even then though I can think of some occassions at my house where it's been below 5 and I live right next to the tower. So I'm thinking the bars may be an indication of network congeston as well.
Mine says zero, but it does get 1 bar barely. Map says there's coverage all over my area O.O
I have great 3G coverage in Victoria.
Wow, I find it surprising how many don't get coverage... it's like buying Photoshop to make stick figures.
I always get great internet service, though it sometimes drops my calls.
It's sad when your city has 3G top to bottom supposedly, and on top of that it was one of the first suburbs to have 3G in the state.
Yet, i get about 2 bars on average, and a lot of times no bars. Same goes for someone else on these forums that lives by me.
YET, i can go in a rural area even farther away from Chicago about 10 miles from here, and i get 5 bars.
I live in Brooklyn -- which supposedly has solid 3G coverage but I get zero bars indoors but full Edge coverage. When I step outside and away from my home wifi I generally get 4 or 5 bars of 3G. Outside is where it really matters I guess since if I'm home I can always surf the internet on my computer -- and the Edge is fine for making and receiving calls and texts.
Same thing when I work in manhattan though. Zero 3G indoors. Most of the time I only need to utilize the internet when I'm away from my office or home anyway so this isn't a huge deal. Yet, I'm still irritated that I pay for 3G service and its not consistently available most of the time in the largest city in the country.
I put 4-5 bars, but that's not entirely accurate, let me explain.
I'm in Northern NJ, in some areas, I get 4-5 bars mostly, there are other areas, where I get nothing and it goes back to Edge. Basically, near my house I don't get 3G, but in my house, I get Wifi anyway.
About halfway to work the 3G kicks in and stays all the way to work, but in my building, I lose the 3G signal unless I am near a window, lol. I blame the building though because even Edge is 1-2 bars at that point.
So, it's spotty at best but at least I do get some 3G action away from home.
I don't have 3G at home which is fine since I have wifi, but I wish I had it at work, since I'd rather use a cell signal than use the work wifi and be blocked from gaming / media sites.
I get 3G though in hangouts on the weekends.
