    For the most part I am very happy with my 3G Iphone and I don't
    seem to have any dropped calls, even driving around on 3G.

    I did notice one thing that was kind of weird though.

    Before I bought my 3G Iphone and switched to AT&T I had Verizon for
    years with multiple different phones. I have terrible cell phone service
    in my house. I could barely make a call on Verizon and always would get
    dropped calls in my house.

    I only have 1 bar on Edge in my house and I can make and recieve
    calls with my iphone no problem, I rarely get a dropped call.

    Here is the strange part, when I switch to 3G inside my house, I get
    "no service" on my iphone. It just sits there and doesn't drop back to edge.
    If I manually switch off 3G I am ok, but as soon as I switch to 3G on
    I get "no service" again.

    Anyone else have this problem where the phone is on 3G but won't
    drop to edge?

    If you were to do a Forum Search you would find that this is a software error.

    2.1 may fix this.
