Apple: iPhone 30 Percent Call Drop Rate Is The Norm

Manoj Gupta took his iPhone to an Apple Genius Bar where they told him that his phone is perfectly well and needs no repairs.

After testing his iPhone, the Apple Genius handed out Manoj a report confirming that his phone suffered from a 22 percent call drop rate during their test run, but asserted that this is within the company's accepted quality level and that "most AT&T users suffer from 30 percent call drop rate or more."

We find it hard to believe that AT&T is able to keep a lot of customers in areas where 1 of each 3 calls is dropped. If you're and AT&T customer in such an area, please share your experience in the comments section.

Apple: iPhone 30 Percent Call Drop Rate Is The Norm

i subscribed to AT&T this past June to get the new Iphone 3GS. I noticed that quite a few calls were dropping, but i thought it was due to me driving or I happened to be in a bad area. 30% seems to be about right for dropped calls and what's crazy is i usually have all 5 bars on the phone :( I hope they improve their service, but i'm not building up my hopes
