    How many bars of 3G do you normally get on your iPhone on the AT&T network?
    What's your location?

    I almost always get 5 bars here in the San Jose, CA area. I get an occasional dropped call in two specific areas as I drive through: Hwy 87 south of downtown and Hwy 101 just south of Hwy 85. Otherwise service has been great.

    The only time I don't get 4-5 bars is ironically enough when I am walking through the AT&T tower downtown.

    You forgot to put "Searching..." as an option.

    I almost always have 5 bars... But that is often not indicative of good service (or any service at all, sometimes).

    I live in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, Yorktown/Norfolk/Newport News, yada yada yada.

    Everywhere is 5 bars. I think I drop a bar when I go into a restaraunt sometimes, but overall it's max 3G everywhere I go.

    At work it's always 5 bars. When I'm at home it's usually 3 or 5. I get pretty good service when I'm out unless I go in stores.

    5 bars everywhere I go. AT&T has some great coverage in my area.

    Dynamics of radio waves. They go away from the tower in orthogonal vectors. However, they can't go under the tower can they?;)

    I'm just outside of Pittsburgh. I almost always consistently have 4 bars. Occasionally 5, but rarely less than 4.

    I almost always have five bars, except when on the highway. It fluctuates. Otherwise, I'm always at 5 bars and Wifi/3G.

    York, Pennsylvania.

    Tampa, Florida - the only time I lose signal is when I go deep into the basements of some of the old buildings on campus. Other than that, it's pretty steady on five bars.

    Lol, same here at times. 3G goes from perfect reception and quality 5 bars down to 2-3 bars and even 1 (sometimes I drop to Edge) in classrooms.

    More so in the 2 new buildings. Maybe its because they want to discourage texting in class perhaps?
