    In the City. With 3G enabled most calls to me from landlines or mobiles either drop immediatley or coime back with a message "There is a technical fault". My mate in the same office has same problem but people just get his voicemail.

    Tested turning 3G off and every call gets through.

    Must be a cell problem with O2 on 3G in London?

    Anybody else wanna try??

    i have had worryingly bad reception in London so far {and also far too much GPRS symbol, not enough 3G}. Generally no more than 2 bars! At home [Shoreditch], it tends to be that most calls go to voicemail because there is so little reception.

    I'm still in a honeymoon period with the device, but can see this becoming a big issue in the near future.

    hmmm aside from the apps and the games at the moment I seem to have a phone that wont take calls when 3G is enabled and won't now sync the address book with my BMW.

    So the non phone bits work fine and the phone bits are crap!

    Maybe it should be called something different than an iPhone - hey I got a limited edition iPod Touch that costs me £45 a month.......!
