    The 3g reception for my shiny new iPhone (O2, London) sucks

    I'm sure it was better with my old iPhone 3g in the same areas

    Is it just me?

    Or does this affect others too?

    Hi, did you get constant full with your 3g?
    Are the bars going up and down on there own now on ip4 ie when its on a desk say?
    Do you get full bars and then it drops down? Or never full bars?

    Having similar issues and it has to be the ip4, question is, a fault or a software glitch?

    No problems for me. Have you checked to see it is on 3G and not auto-connecting to BT openzone wifi networks? There are so many BT networks in central London that you are almost always in range of one, and the phone automatically connects.

    For me, the problem with BT networks is that even after I enter my mobile number to register, the iPhone joins the network but there is no internet connectivity which means web pages start loading but never finish and you don't get any 'not connected to the internet' messages. I tried at length to get o2 to sort it out with no success so now I have given up and disabled them (connect to a BT network, go to settings > wifi, tap the blue arrow by BT openzone, tap disable auto-connect).

    Since then my browsing when I'm at work has been both BT- and problem-free.
