    Default [IPhone 3G] Call Failed

    Ever since I got the iPhone 3G, my calls have been dropping like crazy. I get three beeps, and the Call Failed message on the screen. This is happening when I'm traveling in my car, or even stationary in a building with a full 5 bars. These are places that I've used my Moto Q without any issues whatsoever, so I know it isn't reception. I already exchanged the iphone once a few days ago but it isn't any better. The apple store told me before that 23% of my calls are dropping according to their computer, I can't even imagine what it's up to now. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    I'm guessing no one else has these issues from the lack of responses, I just wanted to add that I've been having the same problem but even worse with the new phone. I brought it to the apple store today and after examining it they were able to tell that 36% of my calls dropped. They said they haven't seen anything like that, and exchanged the phone.. again.. I find it hard to believe that I'm the only one having this issue, or that I had the bad luck of having 2 bad phones in a row. Is no one else experiencing an insane amount of dropped calls with the 3G version of the iphone?

    I had alot of issues with dropped calls, I took my phone back to apple for a new one. No dropped calls like before since and I hope it stays that way.

    I am also getting lots of these. Sometimes, the phone function hangs up alltogether making it impossible to dial and connect any number. No incoming calls either. Comes back to normal after a restart. Happens every 3-4 days, unfortunately. I had no issues like this on my 1.1.4. I am pretty sure it's the stupid 2.0 firmware (since a reboot helps).

    Hi.
    I'm on t-Mobile Germany and can confirm this.
    The reception of the 3g really sucks IMHO.

    The worst thing is that it does not switch back after a call failed.
    I always have to enable the Air Plane mode and then switch it off again...
    Updating to 2.0.1 did not fix that issue.

    I want my 2g back

    Default call failed also here

    I am in Toronto (on Rogers network), and I randomly have Call Failed - first two beeps, then hang-up and a message "Call Failed". Tomorrow, I will try doing this without 3G - switch to EDGE...

    Very disappointed...

    I have this problem as well, so often that I'm thinking of going to an Apple store and asking for a swap. I'll have five bars and have to try to dial seven or eight times, getting Call Failed immediately every time until the call finally goes through. Also, many more dropped calls than I had before.

    My problem hasn't gotten any better, AT&T and Apple deny that they've ever heard of this problem. They're both full of crap.

    Ever tried updating the firmware to the latest to see if the problem goes away. Problem is, you cannot use the Pwn version as it removes the baseband update which defeats the purpose of the udpate. To update directly using Apple's ipsw, you may lose the ability to jailbreak but could fix the radio problem.

    Yeah, I'm more concerned with reliability then jailbreaking so I installed the update the day it came out, I don't see any difference at all though.
