Simple enough..take a screenshot of what your typical 3G reception is in your home or at work. If you have the luxury of a 3G coverage map from your provider indicate what it says you should expect and generally where you are located if you feel like it. I'm in Southern California and the AT&T website says I am completely surrounded with 3G coverage. This is my typical coverage unfortunately. Edit: by typical I mean after having this new iphone for a day. The first iphone using edge consistently was getting almost full bars.
