AT&T wireless Informative - AT&T - not 3G - wireless phones
Hopefully this will help someone....I just recently found out that you (customer) may be considered to live in a "3G" coverage area - but as I just found out - if the towers that are closer to you are NOT 3G - then you WILL NOT have 3G coverage. There are 3 towers within a 10 mile radius of my home - the farthest (at 10 miles) is the only one with 3G - the closer two are not - so, since I ping off those towers - I can only get 'edge' service - even though I am considered to be in a 3G coverage area. So - something you might want to check into before signing up with AT&T!! When we had renewed - we were guaranteed that those towers were going to be updated within a couple of months (it's now been 5) - now it's not supposed to be until Summer 2012. We have called many times to see what can be done - AT&T has been of NO help. Maybe all of the providers are this way - but we feel we are being duped - as they now state we can buy the antennae to boost our service (and of course pay all fees included) - even though we were guaranteed coverage to begin with. So I am already paying for 3G, and they want me to buy additional products to POSSIBLY help me get the coverage I should already be receiving?!?!?!?
