Im about as tech as they come..I stood in line overnight for the first Iphone and never had one issue with operation or AT&T service. On July 11th I should have known better...Why get rid of a good thing?? I live in the Fort Worth Dallas area. Since owning the new 3G Iphone (since July 11) I have approx 2-3 drop calls a day. Several of the people I talk to also complain about calls being fussy and noisy. It has become such an issue I now use the Edge unless Im trying to surf the net. Second many of the applications cont to crash or freeze up. The mail program set to push frequently hasn't synch on its own in 2 days. Can you say Beta Testing at its best... I would consider trading my phone for another 1st gen if possible. My advice if you own a current 1st gen keep what you have and w8 till all the problems are fixed...Its really not worth the upgrade...3G is faster when the signal works properly. GPS is a nice feature in a pinch but not used even on a weekly basis. Im not alone with all my friends having the same issues with theirs... Side note...Several days after getting soooo many drop calls I talked with AT&T. They offered to send a patch fix to the phone to help with losing drop calls and I should receive shortly since this should not be occuring. She also suggested getting a new Sim card???
