I think the petition may be leaning towards the claims of people with phones such as BlackJacks and such having a strong 3G signal in an area, and people with iPhone 3G having a weak signal in the same spot.
For those couple people on this post who have GOOD reception, go to www.fixmy3giPhone.com and let us know when you bought it.
I'm willing to bet that if you sent my your iPhones, I would have the same problem here as I am having with my iPhone. I get great 3G service in some areas, but I get great 3G services in A LOT more areas with my other 3G phones, side by side with the iPhone!
mine is a POS......i get dropped calls every freakin' day. I've already exchanged mine to the Apple store for a replacement and now i'm at wit's end.
I think i'm gonna go back to 1st gen iPhone because this is out of hand. BTW, i'm in the northern california, san jose area and i've switched off 3G because it's just ridiculous with no reception. even with no 3g, i get dropped calls (maybe 3-4 a day) with edge. so ridiculous.....*sigh*
I'm pretty sure everyone is having issues with the 3g..apple is pretty new to the whole thing..I'm convinced the next revision of the iPhone will have better 3g reception. Not sure there's much they will/can do about us original 3g'ers.
I also have horrible 3g service in Southern Cal. I can't figure out if its AT&T prematurely launching 3g or if its the phone itself? It seems *most* people on the East coast do not have problems with AT&T but I don't hear many success stories out here.
honestly, i don't know how you guys deal with this problem.
we're paying an extra 10 bux over the previous edge data plan and we can't even gawd damn use the 3G. it doesn't make sense to me. then the whole reason of why we even buy an "iPhone" is so that we use it as a phone, and then it drops calls =/ i envy all of you that have perfectly working 3G phones....argh!
