I have noticed a steady increase in coverage to places that were never covered and I assume 3g is part of this strategy. About 2 months ago I had lots of dead spots on my drive home through small western va towns and of course over the Shanendoah Mountains. What I am finding now is that I have full coverage through these towns as well as over the mountains. I was astounded one day when my wife continued a phone conversation from one valley, over the mountain and to the next valley. I am also noticing that the 3g coverage is starting to creep closer out to where I am at. Anyone else seeing these things? And do you feel it is due to the impending iPhone release?
