According to a Gizmodo reader who took his iPhone to the Apple Store Genius Bar due to issues with dropped calls, a 30% failure rate in New York City is normal.

Now, we all know AT&T's network crumbles beneath the weight of the iPhone (and suspect any other single network might as well), but it's not often we get numbers to go with it.

AT&T claims to be improving their network and adding more frequency, but with a fail rate that high, New Yorkers will believe it when their calls stop dropping.
