    How do they rip you off? You are giving your money to them. Willingly.

    Im just being facetious, simmer down now.

    Geez, tough crowd

    Survey and "prove" don't belong in the same sentence, as a survey by it's very definition is a very small sampling that leads to a "best guess".

    I just called AT&T and they told me the two towers closest to me is under service. I thought it was software. I think AT&T is doing something to the network. My iPhone 4 was working fine on the 3G network until two weeks ago.

    Hmm, the way most electronic hardware is done these days, TVs, Stereos, Computers, Cellphones, etc. is programmable on many levels, which require drivers, sub-routines, and tweaking options.
    Ever program a Cisco Router? Way too many options
    I for one will be looking forward to the upgrade. Of course any upgrade to the AT&T system is welcome. Maybe they will time it with iPhone 4.01 upgrade

    Surveys aren't a very good way to collect data. Not saying you are WRONG, but just saying that saying there are "surveys" that produce results for 30% saying they have reception issues isn't much better than Apple saying the number is actually 2% and not telling us where they got that number.

    I thought of a nicer way to say this, but there simply isn't one. You are stupid.

    Now you get a free pass to camp out in front of an Apple store for a week for the next iPad




    When is AT&T just going realize that they need to put some serious money into the network? ever since the iPhone came out their data network has been plagued with problem from over-usage. Maybe AT&T is just holding their towers wrong...
