here is a link to AT&T 3g coverage map.

http://www.wireless.att.com/coverageviewer/

in the lower right hand corner, click the link that says "View 3G/Mobile Broadband coverage (in select areas)"

then select your area from the list, then a map loads, showing the 3g coverage in dark blue.

So, even if the iPhone had 3g, are you covered?

I am north of LA and do not have it, but if I drive into LA I have it at the places I go, so that is good for me.

But the big question is will we have to pay extra for it?

Right now I do not have it. And even if I did I would not pay for it. Edge & WIFI work just fine for me.

Thankfully most of the urban areas in Florida are covered so I should be ok. I do know that this same time last year 3G coverage in Florida was very spotty, but it's much better now.

If 3g is NOT in my area, does edge kick in? ...since that's ALWAYS available as long as I have bars..... 3g seems extremely limited....

It is my understanding that edge is first and IF IF you get the 3G it will take over.

Other than that How you doing, ready for party tonight?

I don't think this is the case. I am pretty sure if you have a 3G phone and are in a 3G area and have a 3G SIM (pretty hard not to if you have bought a phone in the last few years) then 3G will come first.

An advantage of the ATT network is that pretty much anywhere you have voice, you have data of some sort.. even if it is EDGE.

I don't think 3G cost any more. You buy a 3G phone, be in a 3G area with a data plan and all should be good as far as I know.

..sidenote..

I thought I would want/need 3G with my iPhone and was planning on using a bonus to get a 3G iPhone if one came out this year but now don't think I will. I have yet to have any issues significant enough with EDGE to deem a 3G iPhone necessary. Also, free wi-fi is everywhere in Atlanta.

Well so if you have a 3G phone and you are not in 3G then it looks like you are with the EDGE. That is what I am saying. But I just looked at the graph above and the 3G has taken over the yes. I am in the no, so this is really good to watch this thread.

Guys, looks like I'm not 3G covered at the moment. Shows only EDGE.
