    Mac I would move along If I were you.. At&t is notoriously slow on its rollouts for 3g and Defuniak springs is not a densely populated enough area to warrant them to add 3g service their quickly.. Its just not financially feasible..

    Do i think you will get it one day? Yes.. but maybe not for 5 years.

    Yeah I'm in Defuniak as well. Seriously thinking of going to Verizon when my contract runs out because of 3g.

    There must be additional steps to provide us the HSDPA 7.2 bandwidth, hardlines maybe...dunno....will hit them up again in a few weeks.

    Call 611 and ask AT&T, or better yet, post to AT&T's Facebook page. On Facebook, they seem to really try to give you the straight scoop (probably because it is aon open forum). Also, ask for some money back; many folks are getting data refunded due to slower than expected launch. Some guys post here with opinions when facts might be available.

    Is anyone experiencing dropped calls. I don't know if they are still tweaking around. I have dropped a few calls lately. Yes I reported them with the iPhone app too. Just wondering what y'all are experiencing. But data is fantastic. I already said suck it to my verizon friends.

    Cool Does anyone have the AT&T Facebook URL?

    I clicked on a link earlier in this feed thinking it would take me there, but it didn't work. I know DeFuniak Springs is not very populated, but I was told they were going down the major highways, and Hwy 10 goes right through DeFuniak. Thanks for the feedback though.

    Cool AT&T Facebook Page

    Thanks. I was able to get out there this time. I was really trying to avoid ever getting a Facebook account, but it seems like you can't get by without one any more. Hopefully I will get a straight and honest answer out there.

    Well thought I would give an update on this,,,, I've had 3g for the last few days here in Defuniak Springs. Wanted to wait a bit to make sure it was on before I said anything. Decent speeds so far. Will be watching it closely.
