A March survey of 4,040 consumers conducted by ChangeWave Research found that AT&T dropped 3x as many calls as Verizon.

Verizon customers reported only 1.5% of their calls being dropped over the past three months, the lowest in the smartphone industry. AT&T just reached its all time worst rating on this important measure as their customers reported 4.5% of calls dropped in the last three months.

WHERE did these 4000 users reside? How many were rural compared to metro areas? How was dropped call defined IF at all. When it comes to ANY statistics and polls I am always "skeptical". The wording of questions, the demographics, the topography, all reflect on the REALITY and VALIDITY. Especially "headline" validity.

I think 50-70% of people's reporting of dropped calls is public perception. AT&T has bad rep, verizon has good rep. I use AT&T on my JB iPhone 3G and am probalby well under 5% dropped with moderate phone usage including in cars, buildings, etc. Do I keep actual statistics and a call log, no and I'm sure less than 2% of that survey did too. I think AT&T is continuing to build up their network and if I buy a 4G this summer it will be with AT&T w/o question. Let's see another scientific test, not a public opinion survey.
