Every othe phone I have had will switch to edge if 3g is not available, but the iPhone seems to just go into no service land. I then have to manually turn off 3g. Is this normal?

Mine switches to edge is 3g doesn't have a good reception. I have never had no service with this phone yet.

Whenever 3G is not available it will automatically switch to EDGE, unless your area don't have EDGE coverage. Bring it to a AT&T store and have your phone checked.

when I had Verizon, there was a number you could dial to update the tower info on your phone... Does AT&T have that?

Good question. Honestly that may be a cmda thing... I used to update that on all of my Sprint phones. Have yet to see anyone mention it while with AT&T. Anyone know for sure?
