    My question is simple. I have the bold 9700. I mostly use EDGE on it because it uses a fraction of the battery 3g does. I do know AT&T is plagued with 3g issues. Do iphone users using 3g cause problems for EDGE users or are 3g and EDGE separate?

    3G and Edge communicate at different frequencies. They are seperate. Now they both communicate to the same tower, so I believe if the tower is being over-used, both 3G and EDGE suffer.

    Has nothing to do with each other for number of connections per transceiver, but it has a lot to do with data network bandwidth in a given node.

    The iPhone is plagued with issues, not the network. A good 97% of the people with connectivity problems are iPhone users, because that POS has a terrible antenna design, and always has since the original.

    Many iPhone users don't believe that their phones have SIM cards. Many more don't believe that you can actually power the phone off. Draw from that what you will.
