Uh huh...I think you mean blue coverage for 3G. The Nexus One is having connectivity issues on T-Mobile's network, by the way, but I read they're fixing it. Granted, the iPhone is not the strongest piece of mobile hardware when it comes to RF, but as far as I'm concerned, it certainly has a good enough radio in it. And that little chip becomes a beast because it supports HSPA 7.2, which means double that of its predecessor. Dallas, for example, was on that list of "the first six HSPA 7.2 cities" (so was L.A., btw), and when I ran a poll on a different forum as to the connection speeds, people from Dallas consistently got 4-5Mbps, with one user reporting 5.1Mbps. That's pretty impressive. I don't get those kinds of speeds just yet.
You don't have to live in any of the initial 6 markets that were announced to be able to get upwards of 3, 4, and even upwards of 5Mbps, albeit I only know of one single person. lol...Maybe he ran 100 speed tests until he hit 5.1Mbps, and in the process slowed down the network for the other fine folks from the DFW metro area.
Hopefully the frequency of everyone getting higher bandwidth connections will increase, as time goes on, backhaul installations permitting.
What do you guys do when the bill comes in? Do you call customer service and request a credit? I would encourage you to do so, as they will give it to you, if you have the powers of persuasion.

Absolutely. I've only just this week moved from my original iPhone to a brand spanking new 3GS but will definitely buy a next gen phone later on in the year when (assuming it's released in July) Apple have had a couple of months to iron out any bugs.
I paid £450 for the 3GS handset from O2 so hopefully I will recoup a fair amount of that later on in the year on ebay although I suspect there may be a bit of a glut of 3G's and 3GS's on ebay then.
