An iPhone user in New York who got frustrated with dropped calls recently discovered that his problems are not as bad as the average iPhone-toting New Yorker. While Geniuses at his local Apple Store were able to verify from logs that his dropped call rate was about 22 percent, he was told that the average in the city is actually 30 percent.
