    I've been an IPhone user on Verizon for the past 40 days. I've also been experiencing dropped calls for my first time ever. Have dropped about 8 calls since going to iPhone. Have never dropped calls on android prior. Are any other new users experiencing this?

    Yeah I've dropped a few calls but I live close to the woods so I don't expect to not drop a call. However I've only had maybe 3 drops max because don't really use the iPhone much as a phone, I use it mostly for the data and messaging.

    Came from the Bold, I haven't noticed any more dropped calls on my iPhone than I had on the Bold. Which is only a handful.

    Went from BB to Droid to iPhone. Could count drop calls over the years on one hand

    No dropped calls for me on either Droid X or iPhone 4, my current phone, with Verizon. Have had some speaker issues, though. Probably reception problems on one end or the other being out of tower range or in a place with inadequate bars.

    I've been dropping calls, but only when I was at school... which is where Verizon is currently putting LTE. I moved back home and now I have zero problems. I think it might be a Verizon thing. Is your area expecting LTE anytime soon?

    Yes I'm in El Paso TX and we are scheduled for LTE this year. Maybe that's it.

    LTE should not contribute to dropped calls as its data throughput only, no voice. This I am sure will change in the future.

    When you change regions it is a good idea to update your roaming so the phone uses the local towers based on the device's physical location. Also, its a good idea to do this as a monthly routine.

    Yep, I do this bi-weekly and always update when I change locations lol. I was guessing it might be the installation of 4G because I can't think of anything else it could be... I just know that once they said we were going to get it in Indianapolis my signal started going crazy. Usually I got a solid 3, maybe 4 bars... and before I moved back it was going from 5 to 1 to 3 to 2 to "Searching..."... daily. I went 3 days without 3G :S I really don't know what it could be, though. I just hope it gets better! haha

    *228, then press 2 on command. Will update your reception to include nearest towers to your location.

    WEIRD! Do you ever go near the Butler area? I feel like it's partly the canal's fault LOL... but me and most of my Verizon friends were having big issues earlier this month. Now I'm 2 hrs north and I'm at a solid 5 bars and 3G 24/7. I wonder what the problem is?

    Well I traveled to Mishawaka, In. From Kokomo to Peru my carrier didn't say Verizon during that drive but it said "Extended". Went straight up 31 north. Also was bouncing 1 to 3 bars.

    Have you had the AT&T iPhone before? You might be holding it where the death grip isn't on the AT&T iPhone.
