Im cool with at&t, they have great 3g coverage in Los Angeles. Plus we dont worry as much about unlocking just good old jailbreaking.

China has 4 experimental 3G networks Two on GSM/HSDPA(which is actually W-CDMA) and two on CDMA (CDMA-2000). They don't know what is best so have got two of each, all in very early development.
Europe, Australia japan and Singapore together with AT&T all us W-CDMA which has far more subscribers than CDMA2000 1x EV-DO as used by Verizon

AT&T Wireless doesn't work well ( if much at all ) at my home. Verizon does. I love the iPhone - but this is not good news for me ... and others in my situation.

i hope the new phone has a massage function and runs on a 12 ghz frequency so it can penetrate my tin foil helmet. keeping the government out of my brain has put a cramp in my iphoningThis is getting a lil' ridiculous...

Either way I win. GSM is where it is at. Granted they don't have the most widespread 3G network, but who really needs that? Their Edge market and voice coverage is the best.

But like anything else, everything is great until you have to call someone to complain about it (i.e. phone quit working, unexpected overcharges or bill questions, technical help, etc). Now that's the service I am talking about. They still suck in that area IMO! But when picking the best of two (or three) evils and wanting to use my expensive 3G brick, I am inclined to stay.

I have had AT&T/Cingular for 5 years, never had a problem at home or travels throughout the US. Before the iPhone I was looking to switch to Verizon mainly becase 80% of my friends had it. After the iPhone's release 80% of my friends, even my MOM has AT&T w/iPhone. If you ask me, I saw everyone laughing at the iPhone, Verizon, Microsoft, etc.. and I am sooo glad I was patient. My iPhone Freakin' rocks! I have owned the 1st and 2nd Gen. If they release another one in the future (June) whenever, I will buy it and sell the 3G I have to pay for the new model. I have even switched my OS in my home to Mac. So satified that I will probably by a Mac Air notebook soon. I travel a lot and it seemd perfect for me. Anyone that has major complaints about AT&T, just go back to the PDA or Phone and service you had before. Trust me..you'll have withdrawls and come runnning back..especially in June.

I don't understand the whole point of the CDMA vs GSM (WCDMA) discussion.
There are 3.7 billion GSM subscribers compared to only 464 million CDMA subscribers worldwide. If you wanted to sell a phone to everyone which would you choose?

America's Top Wireless Carriers ). At the time Cingular had 46 millions users.
Apple decision was mainly for marketing benefit purposes. Steve Jobs understood where to start selling his toy. Cingular/AT&T had the biggest potential at the time for his iPhone. Remember it took Apple 2.5 years to develop iPhone before the 2007 launch, so Steve had already figured out the profit of his product back in early 2004.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

Look, its never a good thing when you have one company having exclusive rights to a product. The consumer does not have a choice on the product. i think the i-phone should stay on gsm type system and have multi network capabilities whether its gprs, edge, or 3g. Personaly i love tmobile and the quality of service i get from them. So i have both tmobile and att for the iphone 3g network only. if i could have my way on tmobile the iphone would also be.
