    Its AT&T. They have gaping holes in their network.

    I have slightly more dropped calls on my N1 than I had on my BB9700. It's still incredibly infrequent and almost always when talking to a friend with an iPhone. So who knows?

    Strange, I have the Milestone and never had a dropped call once. Maybe the signal strength on the Nexus One isn't very strong.

    Same thing when I'm talking to my wife who has a iphone, but it is happened a few other times talking to non-iphone users. I figured it was my cheek touching the end call screen button, so now I switch screens when I make a call and haven't had a dropped call since..so who knows.

    Nexus one reception blows. I've been on at&t in NYC for years. The reception used to suck but over the past year has really gotten very strong. My iPhone 3GS & my Blackberry Bold work perfectly on the network. Unfortunately My n1 has a MAJOR issue where about 2 out of every 5 incoming calls (approximately), I will answer and the person on the other end cannot hear me. I can hear them fine but I have to hang up and call them back and then everything is fine. It's the most frustrating thing in the world. The phone also definitely drops more calls than the others devices but not really at an alarming rate.

    Edit: also wanted to add that it's definitely not due to my finger being held over the 2nd mic. I'm very careful to avoid that.

    That's not a phone issue, but a network issue, how many of the people you are calling have iPhones?

    This is the big reason why I would not get an iPhone...and again the reason I will be waiting for a CDMA version of the N1

    False, this is 1000000% a phone issue as this has NEVER happened to me with any other at&t phone I've used in my area including the iPhone.

    I just want to add that I love the N1 and deal with this issue b/c I think it is superior to the iPhone in many ways. But with that being said, anyone who believes the 3G issues are a "network issue" is simply fooling themselves. This phone has more calling problems than any phone I've ever used on at&t.

    At home I had terrible signal strength with AT&T. The N1 dropped just as many calls as my iPhone 3GS. I recently forked out the $ for the AT&T Microcell (really a femtocell) and now have perfect signal strength and terrific sound quality.
    Of course I still have to deal with dropped calls every where else

    I have 5 bars virtually anywhere I go in the city. But with the N1 I will 100% of the time (without exception to date) drop a call in my building lobby where my iPhone would drop maybe 1/4 of the time (heavy concrete so the signal becomes weaker). And as previously stated, I could be at my desk at work with 5 full bars (always) and a call will come in and the person on the other end just will not hear me. I hear them fine but I have to hang up and call them back. It's extremely frustrating and something that doesn't happen to anyone else in my office or ever happened to me when I had my iPhone. That's why I say it is definitely a radio issue and not a network issue.

    I am in Philadelphia, and have used 2 iPhones (3G and 3GS) on AT&T. They dropped calls daily, sometimes 3x or 4x. I would also get vm notifications when the phone didn't even ring.

    I have since used a Bold 9700 3G and an AT&T 3G banded Nexus One. Neither one has shown the same issues. I also had a TMO banded Nexus on AT&T in 2G mode. Flawless.

    I did experience what you mention where I dialed someone, could hear them but they couldn't hear me. Thing is, that person was on an iPhone.

    Dropped like 5 calls today so far. Plus my friend who has Verizon called me 6 times in a row and I could hear them perfect but they couldn't hear me at all. This is getting very annoying what can we do to solve this issue and I always have 5 bars around new York city

    So you wouldn't have this type of issue. It has to do with how the phone handles voice calls in high traffic cities like NY or SF.

    It sounds to me like you have bad hardware. I'm in Chicago and my N1 definitely gets better reception and many, many fewer dropped calls than either my iPhone 3G or my 3GS did. Slightly more than my BB 9700.

    I have had great call reception on my N1. IN fact, there were spots where I used to always drop calls on my Treo 680 and I do not lose signal or calls in those exact spots.

    I am very pleased with the N1's call quality so far.

    My iPhone 3G dropped calls sometimes whenever I'd talk to someone else with an iPhone. My 3GS rarely ever dropped calls. I've had my Nexus One for over a month and a week and I can't recall ever dropping a call, so no issues here.

    On a side note, simultaneous voice and data on 3G just started working a few days ago. When I first got my Nexus One, the only way I could access data while on a call was to be connected to WiFi. It sucked and it was like being on Verizon or Sprint, but now I don't have that problem any more!! =]

    What makes you think that there isn't high traffic in Miami and Houston???
    Houston is the 4th largest city, infront of Phoenix and behind New York, Los Angelas and Chicago.
    San Fran is 12th on the list, with about 1/3rd the population. Miami is also in the top 50, but I have a real hard time believing there is only 400,000 people there.
    I would say anyways, if its due to traffic, its a network issue, not a phone issue. I can tell you my city is on the list of the top 200 and ATT service was God Aweful. I didn't have data then, but I had so many dropped calls, I had to change carriers.

    Edit, turns out I was right, Miami should really also include Hialeiah, Miami Gardens and Miramar, which are all in the top 250.
