my is about 3 out every 10 calls
On the 3GS - less than 5%
On the 4 - more than 50%
iPhone 3GS - about 1 in 5
iPhone 4 - zero to date
I haven't dropped a call yet on the iPhone 4 - even with the signal issue.
Can't recall ever having a call dropped.
Near my house:
IPhone 3GS 50% non dropped
iPhone 4 60% non dropped
IPhone 3GS 100% not dropped
iPhone 4 99% not dropped
quite a bit
Actually with the 3GS hardly ever.
With the 4 it's almost constant. And I'm not even holding the phone, using bluetooth.
My Jabra Jx10 II doesn't seem to like any range from the phone either. Folks complaining about it breaking up and sounding underwater when stepping more than a few feet away. And I'm using a polyurethane type case covering it.
Hope to see the software fix shortly.
I've never had a dropped call unless I went into some tunnel or deep within a huge complex. And I supposedly am in one of the "worst" AT&T coverage spots.
But so did my 3G.
EDIT: To be fair, my 3G dropped a ton of calls in 2009 but in 2010 it's been really good. My i4 is dropping about as many calls as my 3G did last year. So there's clearly something wrong...the i4 is worse than the 3G.
But that being said, the 3G used to be terrible and it got better over time. So I'm holding out hope that things can still be improved.
Havent had one yet.
0 on ip4
maybe like 2 or 3 on the 3g.
I've had a few calls drop in my room, but literally everywhere else it's been rock-solid, including places where I'd previously dropped calls on my 3GS. The voice-quality has been better than the 3GS, as well.
5% on my 3g
75% on my iphone 4
At times, I'm not even receiving calls. I turned 3G off and edge seems to work better for phone calls. Are there any disadvantages to edge calls?
You can't do data and voice on EDGE simultaneously. That's about it. I honestly prefer EDGE for voice, it's more reliable.
On my 3G once a month
None on my iPhone 4
on ma 3g on canadian fido'a EPIC network
none so far
blame at&t my american neighbours
I'm noticing a lot less drops with the iPhone 4 than I had with my 3GS. There are several spots where my 3GS would drop 100% of the time as I passed through them. The iPhone 4 doesn't lose the calls in those spots now.
this - except mine was a 3gs, not a 3g.
Once every few weeks with a 3GS.
6 over the weekend with the iP4. I probably made about 25-30 calls, so roughly 20%. First call I made with the phone dropped - in my house, where I plan on using it quite frequently.
I'm going to wait for this 'magical' software update, but I don't expect anything out of it beyond making it look like I have 5 bars everywhere (like they did with the 3G and 3GS), and then they can blame AT&T.
3GS maybe >1 out of say 100 or so. The service in my area is pretty darn good. LA County/Orange County. I have found a dead spot thou where no phone can get out of on any carrier. I haven't used the iPhone 4 yet so I can't comment on it.
iPhone 4: none so far.
Same here, but then again my battery life is ATROCIOUS.
Haven't lost a call yet.
I feel really sorry for those of you who are having problems though...it is definitely something that needs to be addressed.
I've had one dropped call so far. On my 3GS, I ususally had at least one dropped call a day.
But, I haven't been heavily on my i4 since I've gotten it.
