    Based upon a thread I saw last night, I was curious how many people on here have 3G coverage and how many don't. I am not asking if you have it depending where you stand in your home or if you walk 100 yards, you have it. The poll is about if it's available at all in your area.

    As for me, yes I have it.

    I live quite literally in the middle of nowhere (50 miles SE of Phoenix) and I have full bars of 3G almost everywhere I go, and everywhere except for an area about 200 yards long along my commute into the city every day.

    Yes, 3G everywhere around me in all directions. I saw that thread, that dude/dudet needs to relax.

    At my house in Durham, NC I don't have it. If I go a mile down the road though I have full 3G

    So yes for my area, no for my home.

    Not only that, a lot of places, I get HSDAP 7.2 and can get like 5MB download speeds. Also, since July when AT&T did some network upgrades in this area, I've yet to drop a call.

    I always have 3G where ever I go with AT&T. SO much better then T-Mobile's ghetto 3G. It doesn't matter how fast your 3G is if no one has access to it.

    I had perfect 3G coverage at my old home. I moved and then
    had to get a microcell for service. Full bars now!

    I have 3g everywhere around my area. Just one question that is related. Is there a way to manually set my 3gs to stay on 2g?

    Way out on the Olympic Peninsula we got ATT just a couple of years ago. It went 3G last year, and works well.

    Plenty of 3G coverage in and around the area I live in. However this is very mountainous terrain so it's spotty. I travel along I64 and US23 for my job and the coverage between my city through Huntington/Charleston is excellent. If I stray away from I64 it drops to EDGE but along the I64 corridor it's fine. However when I travel south along US23 coverage is really, really bad. AT&T doesn't even have service in places like Pikeville, Hazard and Harlan. There is only a single provider in all of eastern Kentucky and southern West Virginia. Kind of sucks really.

    We live in Mt Sterling, Ky and have been promised 3G since Dec 2009 and yet to see it. I work in Winchester and have a good strong 3G there, but nothing here. Had some friends down from Ohio and as we were out driving, there were many places that I barely had a sig and they had 3 or 4 bars.... they have Verizon. If Verizon come out with the iPhone I'll sure be tempted to switch unless things with ATT change.

    I think Grayson just got 3G coverage. Ashland is blanketed in 3G. Can't believe AT&T has neglected Morehead and Mt. Sterling. Even Logan, WV has 3G. I just don't get AT&T sometimes. Logan is a tiny little town compared to a place like Beckley or Louisa and Paintsville. All areas without 3G.

    Live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I get good 3G coverage. The funny thing is I work in an AT&T building and can't get a 3G signal. Everyone has to go outside the building to use their mobile phone.
