> 1) Echoing on a regular basis
This question came up a lot when I worked at Ericsson.
I do not remember the details, but I do remember that this is
a problem at the cellular base station and mobile switching center.
It has to do with latencies and echo-cancellation that is done
when the voice channel is encoded for transmission over the air.

This is a hole in coverage.

This is NOT a hole in coverage, but some unknown quirk in AT&T's
network. And yes, it is very annoying.
I would recommend downloaded this app and reporting the dropped
calls to AT&T.
