I want this post specific to SA and about calls and service/dropped calls etc.

We are getting rid of Tmobile because too many calls are being dropped. We live in North East SA and were going to switch to Verizon locally but hear they have dropped calls too.

Are dropped calls something we have to live with or is there good service, no dropped calls here locally?

We are thinking iPhone.

All I can tell you is I have an iPhone and have never had a problem. Hope this helps.

I don't have an iPhone, but I have Verizon. I haven't had any coverage problems. I live on the Northwest side, but have been all over SA without an issue.

Switched to Verizon from ATT several years ago. Very rarely have dropped calls. Something to consider - depending on where you live many of providers use the same cell towers.

I switched to Verizon from at&t about 1 1/2 years ago. Although Verizon has better coverage, I'm paying $40 more a month for the same type phones.

I agree that Verizon costs more, but I currently have AT&T and wish I had Verizon(company pays for phone... So I don't get a choice). With AT&T, I have service everywhere, but drop calls constantly!! I get to certain places and tell the person on the other line "if the phone cuts off, I will call you back." I know you can multi-task with AT&T on the iPhone... Not sure about Verizon. AT&T is very frustrating. I love the phone, hate my service provider.

Don't be immediately sucked into AT&Ts iPhone without knowing it's tech limitations.

AT&T, nor any other carrier, has yet to offer a 4G iPhone. I'm sure that Apple will eventually release one, but as of now, it's not available. 4G LTE is the newest network protocol and I'd recommend looking into devices that support it.

VZW still has the largest, speediest 4G network in the States. I've been with AT&T, TMo, and am now with Verizon... And love it. Never had a blip, can download quickly and enjoy using my phone (Galaxy Nexus) as a wireless tether for other devices.

I keep reading the term "wireless tether" but I do not know what that means...

I have my iphone with ATT and have never once had a problem with coverage. The internet works fast and I've never had a dropped call. Overall, I'm pretty pleased with ATT.
