    I live in Tucson Arizona and i get 1 bar inside the best 3g area in the city and the internet is fast but when i make a phone call the person on the other end cant hear me but i can hear them. Once I get about 2 blocks from my house where the signal is suppose to be a little weaker it actually gets better. Then at my job i get 5 bars outside and no service inside. In all of these same areas my wifes 3g lg vu gets minimum 3 bars and never has to worry about a missed called. Ive done the restore, switched iphone and also changed out sim cards and nothing

    id rate it 0 because i live in kentucky and only 3 cities in the entire state have 3g coverage. i live 5 minutes outside lexington and only get 3g once im in city limits. it doesnt have any coverage outside of the city at all

    yes its the same way for me once 3g is on i get half a bar. I'm with you hope an update can correct this because 3g is the main reason i upgraded to the 3g iphone

    I was just in chicago and while I had good service, the 3G is just a tad slower than other cities ive been too. But it still worked fine so i guess im content.

    I live in Lansing, MI (capital of Michigan) and there is no 3G here yet. Its terrible, I pay for a 3G plan, but don't receive the service. They tell me that we should get 3G this month, but I'm not going to hold my breath. Artards, how do you launch the 3G iPhone with a poor 3G network? You see, Chewbacca is a wookie, from the planet Kashyyyk. However, he lives on the planet Endor. Does that make sense?
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

    3G is working great it San Juan, Puerto Rico. Leaves a little to be desired inside my apartment but its not bad at all. Elsewhere 4-5 bars consistently.

    Has anyone had any luck, for those that have been experiencing terrible reception, exchanging their iphone to see if it helps with the problem?

    BTW I live right on the beach as well and get 5 bars walking up and down the beach...I only get "bad" (2-3 bars) deep inside my building.

    Although I agree, wifi from the hotels is nice!

    3G near the Medical center in Houston is wonderful. Full bars in my apartment, and all around town.

    Moving to So Cal, hope I get the same luck.

    This is more than likely do to Apple not coding the phone properly and is the reason why its been on the news lately and the apple is doing a fix to be released in a week or two.

    Apple iPhone 3G software update to fix signal reception issues

    Just goes to show that when you rush to get something out the door and over commit there is going to be problems down the road
