Techwrecks, Part III: Apple says 30% dropped call rate is "normal" for AT&T service in NYC, muthafuthas
This explains a helluva lot. I’ve recently moved over to iPhone, at first begrudgingly (love Apple but like to type on keyboards) and now delightedly. But my call stability has plummeted since switching from Sprint’s “now network” to AT&T’s “more bars” nightmare. The fact is, you get your bars, but the bars have no relationship to actual coverage--and even if you can connect, you have a nearly 1 in 3 chance of losing your call somewhere in mid-chatter.
