    i dropped a call today on the way home from work in an area that i have never dropped one before. i will try again tomorrow and see if it happens again.

    i seem to have a good signal strength, but that is just bars and they can lie.

    i have dropped 4 calls today at my home where i always have good verizon signal i even had 3 bars when it dropped the calls so i called verizon they had me dial *228 and that seems to have fixed the problem so we'll see

    Having similar issues. I dropped 3 calls in my office which has poor service but passable in most cases. The iPhone dropped them . Then driving home, I dropped 2 calls in an area I have never dropped before. This is all after *228. I am very nervous. Can't have a phone that doesn't hold calls.

    I've had my iPhone since monday afternoon. I have been using it everyday. Numerous calls, texts and data usage. I have not had ANY issues. This phone gets better reception and call quality than my BB storm 2 ever did. Im a happy camper!!

    I got my phone on monday. Not one dropped call. I had an hour conversation through the poconos mountains. Trust me when I tell you that I would have dropped that call tons of times with ATT. I do have to say that I have had a case on it since I got it. So I don't have a death grip issue.

    I had one dropped call at my house but that's because my house is in BFE and I can't get reception with almost any phone. I have better reception with the iPhone though than my previous phones which I am very happy about. Everywhere else I have great reception and no problems.

    Have had mine since Monday and started making and receiving a number of calls today. I've had 2 dropped calls, both at my home. Calls from other places were strong and clear.

    I'm a little concerned about the 2 dropped calls. My iPhone automatically connects to my home wifi and I have more signal bars at home than I had on my VZW BB Bold.

    One of the calls dropped as 2 emails were arriving. I was under the impression that emails wouldn't come through if I was using the phone, just like every other phone I've used on VZW. I don't want emails to take precedence over phone calls so I want to keep an eye on that. It's possible that the call dropped before I realized it and then the emails arrived.

    Previous Vz phone was an LG Cosmos. iPhone reception is definitely better.

    Not one dropped call on my ViP yet.

    In fact, it gets a much better signal than my LG EN-V Touch crappy phone that I upgraded from.

    I do not want to rain on the parade, but I have been a Verizon user at least 6 years and never dropped a call no matter how far in the sticks I have driven on my job. Then all of a sudden about a month ago I started dropping every phone call I make or receive. Most of my neighbors have Verizon service too and they are all dropping calls. Called CS, we all have, and they end up calling us back in a few days reporting they have cleared up the problem. Yep, Right. Still dropping calls just not every one.

    I was instructed to hit # # # send after each dropped call to mark it for the tech people. So I do, but I have not been irritated enough to call them back yet.

    Went to the store in town and tried to get help, and was told, "Oh we are upgrading the towers to have more capacity for the new demand from the iPhone's It will clear up in a few days."

    Personally, IMO, they are spending all their money on LTE to the detriment of the 3G network. Their idea of fixing it is to have a tech ping your local tower which fixes the problem for a few hours most of the time but they do not go to towers to see what is going on and troubleshoot the problems.

    I would change carriers but this is the best of all of them in my area, so I am stuck. But seriously considering getting my land line back or a magic jack for the computer. Not sure how that would work because I have to use Hughes net for internet.
