    I'm from the NYC area and I currently have Verizon. All I read about is how lousy the service is in NYC, which is partially expected because of the high number of iPhone users and all the interference (i.e. skyscrapers). AT&T has plans to upgrade the network with more cell towers and the HSPA upgrade is about to start, which should help. But the new iPhone is coming out...

    So is the NYC service so bad that you're not getting an iPhone or upgrading it? Or thinking twice about it?

    I've also heard edge is more reliable than 3g in nyc, true?

    I live in the Bronx and work in the city and never have a problem with service.

    I am happy with it.

    Does AT&T work in the subway like Verizon?

    They must had added coverage since March, because I know for a fact it wasn't working in March.

    Thanks for the replies- I got a 3GS yesterday and am pretty happy with it.
    I had service in the subway for a bit before it cut out... does that count?
