I hope this made sense to some of those less technical folks out there. Moral of the story: Check for software updates often!
I can honestly say I have rarely had a dropped call. You may have been misinformed. Dropped calls were an AT&T problem when the iPhone was first introduced in 2007. It was cleared up within the first 6 months by AT&T. The problem you talk about "Apple hasn't figured out a way to make the transition for DATA not interfere with your VOICE call" is completely false. This does not exist. Data and voice are two different systems that do not interact with each other at all. My husband has been a iPhone software developer since July 2007 and assures me of this. My IPHONE is my next limb. I would be lost without it. Okay.... getting off my soapbox now (let the flaming begin).

funny thing in my case, is that my Iphone 3G started off with hardly EVER dropping a call. With each update, it seems to get worse. I hope that 3.0 announced today will fix some of this. I have had more dropped calls on my Iphone in the past 8 months than I had in the previous 5 or 6 with Sprint.

With that said, it is a wonderful device, and if they could ever get this dropped call business fixed, it would be the only device to have. The APP store was a stroke of genius, even if it ended up being very different that what Apple had envisioned.

I have never had a dropped call.
Tho like I said, I imagine the infrastructure is probably better in the UK due to it being a tiny little island

No flaming from me. You are absolutely correct about the data/voice thing. I suspect what somebody was trying to say was the dropping issue had to do with transitions from the 3G network to the (older) Edge network. At any rate, the problem has definitely been fixed.

Sorry, about that, it is the transition from 3G to EDGE that makes it drop calls. It is a software issue though, one that Apple has (hopefully) fixed with the 3.0 update that will be coming this summer. If you read in the notes about the software updates, most of them will say something about fixing issues with dropped calls. It did get markedly better with the software version 2 or 2.1 they all roll together in my brain. I have noticed it got worse this last time though I work for AT&T, and I have had an iPhone and iPhone 3G both within the first month of launch. I have also used numerous other AT&T phones, none of which have a problem with dropped calls. Anyway, it doesn't matter how it happens, I just want it fixed.

The iphone collective. Cool.

Question for you and please point me to another topic if the question isn't appropriate here. I'm currently up for phone upgrades for both DW and myself. I've been considering upgrading to smartphones or the iphone. I like my current FamilyTalk plan with AT&T and want to keep that. If I get iphones is it $30 per phone for the iphone data plan or one charge per account? I'm guessing it's each. Thx....

I'm looking for some sort of case for my iPhone. I have the white iPhone and really like it. DH's black iPhone seems so show a lot of finger prints and smudges. Anyone have any case suggestions?

Most of us at the Apple store use the (Incase Slider) for our iPhones. They are really durable and the best part is that it detaches on the lower 1/3 of the case so that you can dock it without having to take the whole case off.

It also will not eat up the finish on your phone like some other cases I've tried.

Blackberry here. I'm kind of anti-apple. I don't wanna start a apple/pc war but apple products cost way too much. 3 of my computers cost the same as a mac book. That being said the iPhone is pretty cool, which makes it hard to be anti-apple. DAMN YOU STEVE JOBS!!!

George, I just asked Chris and he said it's one charge per account.
