this is really strange. I WORK ON THE LAS VEGAS STRIP. ONE OF THE BUSIEST ROADS IN AMERICA. So I am not in an area that should ever experience an outage. For 29days of iPhone 3g ownership and 29 days of luckilly great 3g reception, yesterday my 3g stopped working. But only in one specific spot. Strange huh? Yesterday morning I was ok until while at work I tried to send an SMS and could not send one. The 3g antenna was on as I always surf the web between "ups" as I am in sales. After that didn't work I reset the phone and restarted. Still a 3g indicator but no way to send a text. Did a hard reset. Not fixed. Reset my network (bye bye saved wep keys!) and nothing. Now IT GETS WORSE. tried to make a call and that failed. Then instead of Att and bars I get "no service" at all. Restart the phone...no service! Shut phone down, remove and clean off and reseat the sim...no service! So I gaveup and called Att on a different phone as now I have a nice iPod touch but not much of a phone. Att gave me apology and said there is an outtage but not near me. They are of course looking at where my bill is mailed. Of where I was having the problem. So I called apple and they set up a genius bar appointment. However as soon as I drove 1/8 mile down the road the problem dissapeared.
