I have a 3G. My house gets a signal strength that can best be described as fumes. With an booster, I can get 4bars and *sometimes* place calls. Other times, I get "no signal". I have scoured through several fora and many threads and found that all sorts of issues like this (intermittent reception) are laid at the feet of errant software upgrades. I'm wondering if simply getting a 3GS won't help out with a newer (and therefore better???) piece of hardware. The issue in reading all the problem threads is that they are skewed with people with problem phones and it's hard to judge whether the 3GS has a shot helping my issue by having better reception. Please, take a moment to share your thoughts or experiences with the 3G vs. 3GS reception. Thanks!
