shoud i come back?
i got the iphone 4 when it came out, but att where i live is not the best. the data is Horribly slow (no 3g in my area). so i cancelled and returned my beloved iphone4. i miss it terribly
i got thinking...i dont use alot of data persay, and when i am at home wich is about 75% of the time, i am on wifi. so i am thinking maybe i should just deal with the slow data when i am on EDGE ( and by slow, i mean like i get alot of "cannot connect to page" "cannot check email" etc.. so it is not jsut slow browsing, and get one back and resign up with att. i did not get dropped calls, just slow service..
do any of you that cant get 3g "deal" with the terrbile speeds with EDGE cause you just love your iphone?

I have an iPhone 2G on T-Mobile, so it's EDGE all the time. I too mostly download apps and what not @ home via wi-fi. EDGE does what I need it to while away from home. I can surf, check mail, etc. Even pull up my WeRule or WeFarm, etc.
I love it!

i get a good 3g signal from verizon where i live..i use android right now, i like it, but i always seem to like IOS better....
3g is NOT a big issue for me. never had it, so i dont miss it. but, if att edge was like my tmobiles i would be very happy..
i jsut keep wondering..HOW can i have such a crappy EDGE connection with full bars??

I hate EDGE. There is literally a tower outside my window so I have full bars. It doesn't take 4 minutes to load a page but it's longer than I like to wait. That is for a mobile page. I do have wifi at home and at work but it's when I'm not at either location, it makes browsing or googling very frustrating.
Looking back, I like the iPhone enough to keep the lower service. I do have a larger employee discount with AT&T. I have been told that 3G is coming to the tower near my house so I'm not too worried. But...
You should always choose your carrier first and your phone second.

in my hometown ATT isn't 3G anywhere... not for about 25 miles north of there... but as long as your connected to wifi... I don't have a big issue with EDGE where my hometown is, (thank god I live in Cleveland now lol) but 3G or no 3G, I wouldn't go to anything else, I've played around with it all... wouldn't use any other device.. i did for 2 years.. and I won't EVER do that again
