OK, here is my tale of woe. I am on my 3rd iPhone 3G. The reason for the three phones is because of poor reception. Everything else on the phone is mostly great (text still lags, some apps crash, oh well) but I'm just dropping calls like it's a bad habit. Doesn't matter if I'm driving, walking, sitting, golfing, bar fighting, clubbing baby seals, whatever - I lose calls. Now, of course there are 'dead zones' where I consistently lose calls, that's to be expected. But the calls seem to drop for no rhyme nor reason. It sort of seems like the main culprit is the switching from 3G to EDGE during a call, but I drop other calls as well. So, today I went in to AT&T and switched out the sim card. If this doesn't work, then, what can it be? It can't be the phone - it's my 3rd one. It can't be the sim card - because that's new too. It's can't be the iPhone software, it's 2.1. What other variables are there? I know there are people who are completely satisfied with their iPhones, I am not one of them. I have 3 Apple computers and use their software for my video production company, but this phone is way below Apple's standards. I would expect these problems from Microsoft but not Apple. So, let's keep this thread flame free - what I'm really looking for are opinions on different solutions or possibilities as to what could possibly be wrong. Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I've been an AT&T customer for over 10 years and always had great reception on my Blackberry. I really really really want to love this phone. I mostly bought it to show off my video work to my clients, but if it doesn't make calls, it's not worth it. Thoughts...please.
