No it's not G3, but GSM. (and GPRS, G2.5?)

The two largest GSM players in the USA (that I know of) are Cingular
and T-Mobile. And then the question is which has the biggest coverage.
I believe that on t-mobile.com you can see a map with the coverage of
them in your area. And I'm sure Cingular has a similar page. :)

Please note, I'm not from the USA but I've read up on a few sources
about this, and heard stories from friends.
