Living in Reno, Nevada and being an IPhone user from day one I thought this might be of some interest. To keep it story short I went camping on the 12th thru the 15th (today). I went to Almanor Lake in California, the whole trip was throught very samll towns, not 13,500 small but like ghost town 500 - 2,000 people.
So pretty much the whole trip my wife and I had service and were able to use the Edge network. After hearing several phone service complaints from the others on the camping trip (family gathering), we were very happy to have recently switched to AT&T. This is not to say that we had full service in every spot but we had service and others did not. I was even able to keep up-to-date on Macrumors and IPhone news over the web.

Thats great, I was please to see that I have good service around Lake Superior.

Heh, and with all the negative Nancy's out there it's cool that your iPhones got better coverage then the other phones.

AT&T has much better service where I live than when I used T-Mobile. I get full bars in my room where my parents and sister (who are still on T-Mobile) are lucky to get 2 bars. And I was pleased that when i went to the beach the other day I had a great EDGE connection and I could visit MacRumors and surf other websites at a decent speed. I'm very pleased with AT&T. It's good to see that others are having the same experience.
