Thread: Is 3G Data or voice?

  1. #1
    Default Is 3G Data or voice?
    AT&T EDGE Service in my neighborhood (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) is AWFUL, it's the strangest this it's like 1 square mile of a dead zone - strange also because this is a major city.

    Anyway, here is my question:
    Would 3G improve voice reception in my area or is it only for data transmission?

    Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal said 'A side benefit to 3G coverage is that it improves voice coverage: "At my neighborhood shopping center, where the first iPhone got little or no AT&T service, the iPhone 3G registered strong coverage.'

    I have a iPhone hacked on T-Mobile where their EDGE works fine where I live, It must be AT&T's antenna is further away.

    3G does not increase voice. It's data only.

    Walt's "strong coverage" is likely due to improvements to the phone. It has nothing to do with the fact that 3G has been added.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.
