Well, today was the big day. The Apple iPhone event happened, the beta SDK was released, and Apple set the roadmap. As someone without an iPhone it wasn’t a big deal for me. But in the run up to the event there sure was a lot of hype and hope about them also announcing a 3G iPhone.
About a month ago the company I worked for changed by company phone from Verzion to AT&T. The phone was a Blackberry and the plane included 3G. In the month I’ve had the phone I’ve never been able to use the phone on the 3G network.
I live in Connecticut. According to the AT&T coverage map there’s coverage along the coast (I-95 corridor) and coverage up I-91 to Hartford and Hartford is well covered. While I travel across the state I almost never travel along the coast or into Hartford. But even in the suburbs or Hartford I don’t get coverage, also no 3G coverage on I-91 even though there’s a thin blue line on the coverage map. Edge coverage is fine.
I’m just saying, maybe Apple was right in not going with 3G. I’d sure be po’d if I bought a shiny new 3G iPhone and stayed on Edge.
