Noob question: Does 3G affect call quality and reception?
 

 
I got my iPhone 4 recently, I don't have a data plan... I have 2 questions:

1. Does being on a 3g network improve call quality and reception? I've gotten mixed answers on this im not sure whats really true...

2. If I select the option on my iphone to disable cellular data, it disables my 3G logo aswell on the top... But it also allows me to Enable 3G... If I disable Cellular data on my Iphone and select Enable 3G while the cell data is disabled, is 3G still working?

Thanks.

How do you not have a data plan?

Should have just got a iPod touch if you are too cheap to pay for a data plan on the iPhone.

no..if you turn off cellular data then 3G and edge are off..regardless of whether or not you have 3G on..
and no it doesnt affect your cellular signal..
at least not in my experience since i have it off on campus (i have wifi everywhere and it saves me battery)

Cuz data is a jip, and I don't feel like giving my service provider extra money for a "mandatory" service that I DON'T need... Wifi is everywhere nowadays... f**k Data plans...

Thanks Manny...

Nah Im with Rogers here in Canada...

All I get with them is random text messages saying "You have attempted to use a data service blah blah blah please follow this to link to get one" or something like that... Thats why I turned off Cellular Data on my phone, no more txt msgs from them :dancingcool:

if you google how to disable cellular data for good.
you should get some instruction to go on safari and download some APN settings and it will forever turn it off.
i know it worked on my iphone 3G years ago
not sure if it works on the iphone 4( i have it, with a data plan..its required so :( )... give it a try though

Its actually true, I tested it myself... Calls on the gprs and edge had the buzzing interference sound, but when I switched to 3G, it was clearer...

The only problem, is that apparently I have been missing ALOT of calls while on 3G, and today I couldn't even send out txt's or calls cuz the 3G network was f**ked for some reason... It works periodically, but I don't trust it, so I turned 3G off... I think I lost my job cuz I missed a call on Monday from my boss, and I only found out today!

Like I said before, why do I need a data plan if everywhere I go has Wifi? I got the iPhone cuz IMO it has the best browser than any phone out right now... I love the retina screen, HD 720p video recording, 5mp camera... Best of all, it can be cracked easier than any phone right now... Installous is the s**t... Data plans are for people constantly on the go who can't stop somewhere for too long to get wifi... I love the phone...
