    It is unlikely a (store) manager will tell his/her customers not to buy a product or to wait before spending their money, just because a new product is coming soon. A manager ought to clear up his inventory before the new products arrive.

    So I think your friend lied to you.

    Test it if you don't believe me. Place a call, and run mobile speed test. You will loose signal for 5 seconds, as your iphone drops Data and voice at the same time...

    So if your phone check the mail, and downloads an attachment, it will probably drop the call. Seems that minor data usage doesn't always interrupt the call/ signal.


    I still don't know if Geohot is even aware of the bug because of everyone complaining about a tethered jailbreak.

    Sorry, I have tried many different iphones with blcksn0w in 3g mode, Both 3g & 3gs's and all of them did it. Get the speedtest.net app, and place a phone call. While the call is active, run the test. I guarantee that it will loose the call within 1 or 2 tests. If you uninstall BlackSnow, it will run the tests all day. put BlackSn0w on, and it doesn't.

    Preforms the same, whether I do a clean restore, then run blackRa1n, or if I install it through Cydia on my Rom I made with dev teams pawnage tool.

    UltraSn0w was a much better Unlock, and I am soo regretting updating my baseband.

    well this really isn't all that much of a gap. seeing as how i switched from Verizon to At&t due to coverage disabilities with Verizon [not for the iphone] prooves, if not to you, most definately to myself, that Verizon is inferior to At&t.

    Sucks for all you people! I have great service with AT&T, great speeds, no dropped calls, and love being able to use data while I'm on a phone call. Wouldn't switch to Verizon even if they did have the iPhone.

    Yea, I wouldn't go to Verizon either. They remind me of the Borg on Star trek. Where I live, and in my whole neighborhood Verizon's signal is horrible, and my At&t is awesome. Not to mention that the 3g is way faster on At&t here. Also the simultaneous data and voice is awesome. I don't know how I lived without it on Sprint. (I used to have the HTC touch pro)

    Now that being said, when I went to Colorado Springs for Christmas, I was amazed at how spotty and crappy At&T's coverage is there. It was also the first time I saw the GPRS icon on my phone. Even sprint has far superior coverage there.

    So it all depends on what market you are in. Charlote, NC seems to be a test market of sorts. Like Sprint has 4g here already, and At&T has already done the 7.2 UMTS upgrade here.

    You must be in a good area like mine . Even when I visited Colorado Springs, sure I was frustrated with the crapy coverage there, but it didn't make me want to run into the arms of the Borg.

    It made me thankful of the coverage I have in Charlotte. I stream music with ooTunes all the time, and dont loose the stream when I drive around Charlotte. I even skype with my babe in Egypt while I am driving home from work. Nice and solid the whole way. And I even live in South Carolina.(Got to LOVE 3g unrestrictor)

    ATT isn't that bad, i get much better coverage now that I switched from tmobile. I'd like to see my phone get even more coverage though, I still can't complain, At least I don't have metro p.o.s.( piece of sh1t), or tmobile( t-crapbile).

    I dont know why you peeps just dont go over to T-mobile , I have had 2 iphones over the last 3 years on there network with no problems at all. I have had them for 7 years and hardley have any call problems there customer service kicks *** and won the JD power award for it like 4 years running. Plus you can be on wifi and talk at same time .i have an unlimited voice , text data plan for 79.99 a month. While you guys at att complain everyday and pay like 130 a month. Even if you cancel with the fee of 175.00 It would only take you about 4 months to get the difference back. Look into it everyone well worth it!

    True true. Although AT&T's 3G for iPhone is now $20 but T-Mobile's EDGE is faster for sure.

    It's not the perception of AT&T's services that is hurting AT&T, it's their actual services.
    Well said.

    They just dropped it recently because Verizon dropped theirs. I think it should happen automatically soon.
