    First off, I need to get out of the way how jealous I am that y'all already have it!! :)

    1) How is reception in your area vs your previous phone? I know this seems ignorant, but that's my problem now with my iPhone 4(I know about the antenna BS) I'll have little to no service, when my whole family will have 3 bars-full service including my brother who has an iPhone 4, also.

    2) How is call quality? I read some reviews saying it wasn't very clear, then some saying it was excellent.

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Reception with the inspire is abut the same as my captivate although it never drops below two bars and call quality is crystal clear on the headset and speaker

    Reception is 5 bars where I am here in the middle of nowhere,but thats because I have a ATT Microcell . Other than that, in town I have good reception 3-5 bars and the call quality is crystal clear. Are you still debating getting the inspire? I have had a Sprint Evo,iPhone 3 g, and an iPhone 4 and I like the Inspire way better.. Hope my two cents helps.

    I have an iphone 4 and an inspire

    Data connection and voice are the same

    A few times the inspire will show 4 bars and sometimes the iphone will show 3 and then back and forth.

    I live and work around DFW and the voice and data signals are strong all the time.

    Voice quality is the same.

    There are places where my Inspire has 1-2 bars where my iPhone 3G had no service.

    Call quality is great.

    Thanks everyone! I literally live in the middle of nowhere and my family usually has 2-4 bars of Edge, where I only have 1-2. I'm assuming those of you comparing to the iPhone 4 have a "normal" one because mine sucks. The "town" I'm from has 3G and I attend school in the state capital, so it's 3G also. I just don't want to keep having these ridiculous service issues.

    I'm glad you have all said call quality is good and clear. That's really important.

    Thanks, again.

    I think I will like it way better too, because I HATE how you can't customize iPhone unless you jailbreak it. Can I ask what you like better than iPhone 4 in particular though? I like Android, but know it's way different than iOS.

    Coming from an iphone 3gs the signal strength is better and pages load FASTER both when traveling and when using wi-fi. Phone is faster over all.

    Call quality is fine...speaker quality of the headset is...worse. But I can live with it.

    I bought this and the iPhone 4 on Sunday. Gave the iPhone 4 to my BF, havent asked about call quality because he rarely EVER "calls" anyone *rolling eyes*..although he hasn't complained about lack of coverage.
    I also, have not noticed issues (yet) with coverage. Just looked down at my phone and have 4 out of 5 bars.

    Just got the phone about um 30 minutes ago!!! LOVING IT!!!!

    But, how in the heck do i turn off the haptic feedback or whatever in messages??

    I have class all night, so I won't get to play on it any. But it's so awesome :)
    Signal strength is better on it than my iPhone 4, but that's because my phone was whack for some reason lol

    Menu button --> Settings --> Sound --> Scroll to the very bottom and uncheck the last option that reads "Vibrate feedback: Vibrate when I press onscreen buttons."

    Having been on ATT with my BB and now being on ATT with the Inspire, both seem to have about the same coverage and signal strength.
