    Red face 3G service in US western states

    Hi: I'm travelling from canada to calif. and arizona in january with my ipad and hoping to get at&t service there. Will I get consistent service in all areas, or will there be poor connection in more rural area? I haven't used 3G service before....is it like cell phone service that can cut in and out depending where you are?
    thanks,
    Maplea

    We have a home in California (south S.F. Bay area) and one in Las Vegas. If you expect decent service (of any kind) from AT&T, forget it.

    I live in Northern AZ and go camping all over Arizona, Nevada and parts of Calif and have never had a problem with AT&T.

    90% of the time, AT&T service will be just fine. It is in the busy areas of Cali that you would expect the most issues, or areas so remote that no one has service. The problem is not so much that AT&T does not provide service, but that California attracts those who buy things like iPhone and iPad, but also attracts those who are opposed to anything unnatural like power plants, cell towers, jobs, etc. The popularity of the iPhone created a tower overload for AT&T and knuckle dragging bureaucrats are very slow about approving new ones.
