    Yes 3G is much faster. A 3G connection with any bars is faster than an Edge connection with full bars. And in some spots around the country 3G is super fast with AT&T upgrading their HSPA in major cities. There are a bunch of youtube videos already out there comparing edge vs 3g.

    Yeah that guy at AT&T was an *****. All the bars represent is the strength of your signal, so an EDGE connection on full bars is still an EDGE connection. Check these out:
