I have an LGCU500 and a Blackberry 8700c with Cingular and I have been with them for 4 years and I have yet to have an issue. I actually left Verizone for Cingular because of the crappy phones. Sure, every now and then I will drop a call...but thats the nature of wireless service (besides it isnt like my phone is glued to my ear all day discussing nucleur launch codes with the president, if I drop a call it isnt the end of the world) I find Cingular to be way ahead of the game with devices and services. I always get the best phones with Cingular and that is really all I care about. Cellular networks are built out enough so that anyone living in a metro area will get service most places with any carrier. Anyways, about the iPhone. I think it is a great looking and innovative device but I am with the people who are waiting for the next revision (possible UMTS, larger storage, VoIP, and all the bugs worked out). I am using a 3G phone right now (the LG CU500) and I cant imagine going back to edge. But lets be realistic for a second....all of the people complaining about the lack of features in the iphone...ask yourself how many of those features do you actually use.
