THink i might of made a mistake..
i got the new iphone4 with new att service (never had it before) last firday. i LOVE LOVE the phone, but MAN the service is soooo spotty. i mean one moment sitting on my couch with FULL signal, (not holding the phone) and the next 1 bar? WTH??
with my other carrier (tmobile) i have full bars everywhere where i live. and getting my gmail though exchange seems to take forever. it says loading and Loading for ever. it always does it..
i am thinking if this does not change, i might have to give it up before my 30 days, but i love my phone...

just got off the phone with att, she said i had 3 towers around my house in range, and that was more then enough.. she submitted a ticket for a tech to look at the towers and see if anything is up because i found anouther issue...
on EDGE it takes FOREVER, and i mean forever to surf, and check email. i have had edge for ever on tmobile and it is fast. i mean , it took like 4 mintutes to load a attwireless webpage. my tmobile HD@, was done in like 22 seconds..
and..the iphone got VERY hot when it was surfing. all with wifi off, and 3g off ( i dont get 3g) i reset network settings, and the att rep "re-registered" my phone...still the same..i told her if this does not change, i will have to cancell..
do you all think i might have a faulty phone? EDGE has NEVER ever been this slow ..even on full bars..

We're not suggesting you buy it but you can try to get it for free like someone said you wont know until you try. Just make sure you talk to someone in person don't ask over the phone. We don't have it here in Canada so I'm not sure but I beleive it will give you better calls via better signal strength.

i tested my Iphone4 on EDGE last night for about an hour. in that hour, at one point, i got good speeds, i did i speed test at that point and i got 157kb, then about 1 min later..CRAWL again, and that was how it was the rest of the night, i had my tmobile HD2 on the other side of me, and it was fast as heck..
so i take it this is ATT's network? i cannot have slow speeds like this, since i cant get 3g...looks like i will have to cancel....sucks.
how are you all on EDGE? is it ok?? or is it like me, 2-4 min for a simple webpage?
do i have a bad phone?

In cases such as this, people often blame their 'phone for bad reception or strange behaviour. However, the problem is invariably with the network (in spite of what the network might say!)
The OP hasn't said if the 'phone has been checked at different locations. This should clarify if the fault is with the network.
The OP also refers to the iPhone becoming "very hot". This is certainly unusual, suggesting there may be a fault with the 'phone. Has another 'phone been checked at the same location to determine if it too exhibits the same behaviour?
These checks should narrow down the source of the problem.
