I've not bought an iphone, since my contract ran out in January and I need the latest and greatest and I believe they'll bring a new one out in June - you know, the phantom 3G one. But anyway... I currently own a Sony Ericsson K800i on Orange UK - it's a 3G phone, with fairly ok wap capabilities. But unless I sit in a full 3G signal place outdoors, 3G really complicates the reception - it keeps phasing in and out of 3G to 2G. This means it drops calls sometimes. And it takes the phone/network quite a few seconds to transition between the 3G and 2G signal. I had a similar frustrating experience with 3 network in the UK too. So, when 3G works it's pretty quick but in reality, if my experience isn't unique, it's going to result in a frustrating user experience. I'll still wait for the new iphone, but I think apple will have a lot of work to optimise the 3G implementation. Anyone disagree?
