Anyone else having issues with calls connecting?
ALL FOUR of these stupid phones I have had (oh yes, I am on #4, and my 6th SIM) has had issues connecting, even on the rare occurrence that they actually HAVE a signal showing. It says "calling" whatever Im calling but no sound, no ring, no nothing. I don't know if it's connected and they can't hear me or what. It sometimes takes several tries to go through. ATT store just changes the SIM and sends me to Apple, which tells me that ATT needs to change my SIM again.
Anyone else have this issue?

it's AT&T's sucky network that is why they need T-Mobile.... antagonist sprint never drops or not connects....you could call up and threaten to leave for Verizon or Sprint if they don't fix it and talk to technical support they should be the ones handling your problem not a CSR(customer service rep.)

hey Cleveland try living in California AT&T sucks CDMA is the way to go in the West Coast and East Coast but anyway look at AT&T's and Sprint's voice and data maps for the whole Sprint has coverage even in the smallest town without roaming and when we do roam is rare.....AT&T on the otherhand spotty coverage all over the coverage map and they have no roaming partners plus you don't get 3G everywhere.....Sprint has 3G in the middle of nowhere......never have dropped calls and T-Mobile dropped them(AT&T) as a roaming partner 2 years ago because people were complaining that when they roamed on AT&T their calls would get dropped or they had like a bar and that they wouldn't get 3G so T-Mobile expanded

I travel for a living I was all up and down the West Coast about 6 weeks ago, and I has coverage everywhere ... I had coverage when half the people I was with (who have vzw) didn't lol I have no issues with them at all
And PS eventually the two CDMA carriers here will be GSM ... Verizon's 4G/LTE is lol

Further, I was in California for two weeks driving down the coast from Oregon and with sprint we barely ever had a signal. So if we had an emergency we would've been screwed.

I have a gay twin brother he looks exactly like except his name is Ariel(masculine) and I am Arielle(feminine) and we are different sexes anyways I am done with my schpeel all I can say is it's AT&T's fault not yours or Apple's and Sprint roams on Verizon so I always have coverage and I live on the coast but hardly ever roam on Verizon

I have AT&T on the West Coast and I have outstanding coverage. I also carry a work-related Blackberry 3G on the Sprint network and that phone gets crappy coverage! I use both phones daily and can attest to the spotty Sprint "coverage."
I spent an hour at the Apple store with a poor Genius soul and we spent most of that hour on the phone with ATT while the Genius did diagnostics. There was a problem with the phone itself AND with my ATT account. The IMEI was not the same on ATT's end as it was on my phone. She fixed that, and one issue was resolved. The Genius was able to fix the hardware issue, and I believe I am back in bizness.

Yes - I've been having an intgermittent problem getting outbound calls to connect. I'll make a call - get absolute deadzone - wait - wait - wait - finally end call, try again and usually on the 2nd or 3rd attempt it'll connect. I've been with ATT / Cingular for 20 years and absolutely no complaints historically - has worked great!

I too had the same problem and it's beyone aggrivating. I finally did *228 Opt. 2. I'm on Verizon. It fixed the problem. The rest of my family all have IP 4S's with no problems connecting, so I figured it was not a phone prob, but a reception issue.
I haven't had any prob's since then.
