With AT&T claiming a 1% dropped call rate, in general, on its cellular network, a reported 2% – 3% dropped call rate for iPhone 3G traffic would indicate something of a problem. It’s a problem neither Apple nor AT&T are willing to acknowledge or comment on presently, but reports indicate Apple is hurrying to push a software upgrade to one of the chips inside the iPhone made by Infineon, some say in hopes of staving off a potential product recall.
Have you experienced difficulty with getting on AT&T’s 3G network in places where it’s available? Have you had problems with dropped connections when moving between high-speed and slower-speed networks during calls and Web sessions?
Let us know in comments below and we’ll keep you posted with further news about the chip upgrade.
