    Ocean County, NJ and the Hamptons (eastern end of Long Island, NY) have 3G for the past few weeks now...

    Looks to me like Apple wasn't so far off in not including 3G in the iPhone. There just isn't much coverage, and by the time there is, the iPhone will be on verison 2 or 3.

    Looks good, except these maps are really old and there are several markets missing that are now 3G. Anyway, eventually all the dark orange you see will become blue! (in the not so distant future)

    Nice job with the map. Though I can't say much for the real thing for 3G, and the roam zone in the Plains and Rocky Mountain States.

    How did you make this? Did you just screenshot their coverage map and save it as a GIF? The reason I am asking is I am wanting to create a coverage map (US) for AT&T and Sprint and overlay with a map that pinpoints all of the US locations of the company I work for.

    All i did was right click on the map image on cingular's site and save it, then open in photoshop and stitch them all together.


    hehe PR ended up a bit north because at the time i placed it, wasn't sure how far south the map was gonna go (hadn't gotten to texas yet).


    Yea i agree, they need to update it, i might email the people who actually handle the maps and see when there might be some updates. Honestly they did update them last in may of this year, not sure what they updated though.

    Oh yea just wanted to say, I did it because i figured most of us would like and prefer a map like this. I know i've always wanted one at least.

    So lastnight i started playing around with the site (randomly out of nowhere) and thought, "hmm I might be able to do this depending on how they cut the panes". Luckily it all worked out pretty well imo. maybe we can sticky it too

    I agree though, the data is pretty old, and the 3G coverage looks pretty weak, although some areas have great coverage of it (indy for one). The other thing that is bothersome is the utter lack of AT&T's presence in some areas, like whole states! Makes me think about how they aren't as big as i originally thought.

    I'll tell you what though, their map is by far better than most other companies. The only other map I think is better is T-mobile's, and thats primarily because they have more steps in their signal strength gradients, makes it easier to pick out where the cell sites actually are I actually started mapping out cell site locations in my area on google maps for AT&T and saw how easier it would be to do for T-mobile :P

    I am pretty sure that is because the last time the map was updated was May 31st.

    Actually, png is the replacement for gif, if you set them to the same number of colors, png is usally a little smaller than gif.
