Is it just me or is the 3G tower out in this area?

I cant seem to get any kind of 3G signal on my device here (900/2100).
tried cycling the phone etc. - However I don't have another phone here to try.


Anyone in this area that can test? or John, do you know anything about that?

I have never been able to get 3G coverage in Stanmore Bay, specifically Surf Road.

Well, at least my 3GS iphone has never been able to receive a 3G signal.

John - is this 3G extended and could that be why the iphone 3GS receives no 3G signal. My iphone works perfectly in other 3G areas.

2100Mhz 3G sucks around this area because its hilly etc.

900Mhz is quite a bit better, but still not enough to lock my phone to 3G only.

Stanmore Bay is 3G 2100mhz

A New 3G 2100 site is coming online any day now in Orewa Township
