    I have a question:
    I wonder what could cause this deadzone?
    I drive by a smaller stripmall and then a Mall everyday.
    A few lights perhaps about 1/2 mile
    I have all bars and 3G throughout
    I can make calls but I have no data abilities
    From the BestBuy light to the TacoBell light NOTHING no map no Siri no internet NOTHING
    So what could cause the data deadzone ?

    To much other radios in the area.
    Although illegal, they do exist and are rather cheap,but cell phone blockers cause small dead zones.

    Great to know I was worried if moving in a more congested area would make me loose data like that ..
    I like to stay with AT&T when I move next year

    Congested housing areas typically don't have "dead zones". I don't even think congested industrial areas have dead zones. Big building like city areas typically have amazing reception.

    I hit one every night on my way home, right next to a retirement home.
    It's annoying.

    ps: that sounded So wrong.
