Never drop calls with my 3G[S]. Had all 3 iPhones. Same deal. Live in Phoenix and hat east of San Francisco. Don't drop calls in either places. And I'm currently pulling over 5megs down from the cell tower.

Defective Cell Services
4 years with AT&T now. As with any cell service it has its ups and downs. There will always be bad cell areas and sweet spots. If there is a problem with something their customer service is pretty good. On iPhones one can check out their cell towers in their area by going into the "Field Test Mode" typing in this after pressing phone.
*3001#12345#* press call.
Go to Cell information - list cell towers.
Look at the RX= -60 is good -111 is weak. Walk around and find your sweet spot. or just look at the top left of your screen and it will show your RX %.
Here is a video on it.

No complaints here in Houston, San Antonio, Austin, or DFW. My 3G works great all the time with speeds or about 300+ kB/s. But my 3G does revert to EDGE in a few wide open empty spaces down here in Texas. Going to & from austin on HWY 290.mod/edit links removed.

The reason I left verizon was because their customer service was atrocious.
I have been with AT&T for about 3 years now, definitely a downgrade with reception, but not to the point where it makes me want to go back.
I normally do not drop calls, and 90% of where I live (Rhode Island) is covered fine.
I see everybody hating on the fact that AT&T negotiated terms for the iPad and iPhone extension, and it does not make sense why people are upset. Take a look at the situation from their side. The longer the stay exclusive with apple the larger their profits become. Thats the core principle behind business...profits!!
At least they are currently working on their infrastructure to provide their apple users with a more practical bandwidth.
...anyhow, just my two cents.Previous Phone: AT&T Tilt

When I had Verizon I did not get dropped calls however their customer support was awful. I had returned a new phone I got from them and had the receipt for it and I had to argue for a month almost everyday until they gave me my money back... they said they did not see it on their computers and I had the proof that I returned it.
However AT&T has been more than nice to work with as far as customer support.
I liked Verizon better but paid my way out to get the iPhone....
I do not mind AT&T...... just wish they could kink out some of the problems.... at least they are understanding!

Maybe in some rural places where I never go but....I live in Vegas and have had AT&T forever, back when the service was called 360, then it was Cingular and then AT&T bought them out. I had drops in one spot in town on my old old OLD Razor years ago, but Have never, not once had one single dropped call in the years I've had my iPhone with AT&T. I have no complaints....but like I said that's here in Vegas and Hawaii where we always go. So can't speak for the rest of the country...
...and ditto the good customer service for their dealings with the problems my kids had with their different touch phones.
