I'm considering buying my first iPhone, but want to know what the real-life reception for calls and 3G is like, here in L.A., for current iPhone users. I searched extensively, but couldn't find any information more recent than October 2008, when people seemed to be having a lot of issues with dropped calls and low 3G speeds. I've found a lot of pages that say way more than I want to know, yet still don't answer my question: "The new HSPDAQWG+6.pi just came out but AT&T only provides Q3GBDIG. However, in August they'll update to the new dual-discombobulator MILF47.11 but only to the Pransbambler standard. Yay/Boo!" I would just like to see a simple, cut-and-dry page that says, "if you live in _____, here's what kind of performance you can expect at this point in time." EVERY potential buyer is trying to find this out. Thanks!
