    Ya i'm sure that's no news, but things have even gotten worse in the past 2 months. I have 1-2 bars where I used to have 3-4....
    It really sux, because I love the phone, but what good is it if the service stinks.

    Thoughts?

    My thoughts are if everybody started a new thread for bad ATT reception, this site would be a clusteryouknowwhat.

    Yea, not surprising. I was told anecdotally that it will get worse before it gets better. Too many people using the same phone on the same network, I believe.

    Where in NJ are you? It's not exactly a small place.

    Service has completely gone down the tubes in the Philadelphia/metro area.

    Haha, yeah it is. You've ever been there? You can drive from one far end to the other in like 2 hours.

    Perhaps if your average speed is 100Mph. Otherwise it's more like 3 hours:p

    Tend to travel all over NJ here, and haven' had any issues. Service has been pretty good, actually.

    I have been there actually - I live there. It's a big enough place that you can't say you have bad reception in the state and leave it at that. There is more than 2 cell towers.
