AT&T Downgrading Original iPhone 2G Service
Still got that original iPhone 2G running on AT&T? Get ready to suffer, luddite! Gizmodo reports on OFB's findings:
Specifically, the weaker band means less bars in less places, like inside homes and offices and, out of the way regions -- like maybe where you are?
Additionally, this leads TiPb to wonder what will happen to iPhone 3G users in 2G-only areas? Will AT&T leave the 850 band for them until 3G rolls in? And what about users switching to 2G to save battery life? Will it now come at the expense of their signal? How about it, AT&T?
