I was happy with Cingular, been a long time customer. I loathe Verizon too. I upgraded my 2g iPhone to 3gs white on 7/16 and had 3g problems from day one. I would have SWORE that it was ATT fault. Everyone kept telling me to just switch off the 3g. Wrong answer. Finally made a Genius appt for 8/11, got a new unit after being told the antenna was defective. Ive not had one (ZERO) problem in the last 10 days. It was not ATT but in fact a defective Apple product. Now we all get in these 'I hate' ruts. I guess I was too against ATT in my mind to believe it was the phone. That being said, I still love and drool over this phone and am now happy with both the service and the unit. Just my 2 cents.

I LOVE my brand new 3GS.. and hate at&t's coverage.. I guess I've made my peace with Customer Service & Cost.

yeah ATT has been one huge fail. like how the hell is MMS not ready and really no internet tethering at all. not to mention their service is total balls! at this point i would accept any other carrier! hopefully tmobile or maybe verizon..... i dont know but they need to pass the torch

I would definitely be happier with Verizon or Sprint's service. It still hurts to think about the awesome plan I had with Sprint and ditched it for the first gen. iPhone. Their service was excellent and had great customer service (IMO).21.5" iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core i3 l 15" MacBook Pro 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 l 17" PowerBook 1.67 GHz

I have to agree with Happy Noodle Boy. People have got to stop comparing US cell service to European countries. It's a lot easier to cover a small are with then it is a big country like ours. I have been with Sprint and would never make that mistake again with there constant issues over over charging me and having to call customer service to have the bill fixed every month. I also agree that Verizon would have locked down the iphone so hard that everyone would have to jailbreak it just to make it worth having plus they are still running on old hardware and who wants to have to call them every time you get a new phone. As to everyone who is crying about mms, use email most phones now have it and support it and here's the kicker it's free. Unless you like paying that extra charge on top of the already expensive $30 data charge. Oh and to you T-Mobile fans out there how do you enjoy your almost non existent 3g network. The only thing they have going for them is there hot spokes model. I will stick with ATT with whom I've never had any issues with and my coverage has been solid the entire time I've been with them.

I hate when people complain about service issues when the only service issues they have are when they are inside their house. Me and my friends and family back home all have different carriers and often depending whose house we are in someone's reception is awful. It's not just at&t that does this, and it's not just verizon. So this is not a good reason to ***** about it. Either way, I think that Apple should not keep the exclusivity contract mainly because of how much At&t limits them (mms, slingplayer, etc.). I also think it would be a much better business strategy for them to open up to other networks. I'm sure their market share would grow unbelievably if they did so.iEat. iSleep. iPhone.

Att is so damn expensive even with service discount. The prices is keep going up. Tons of drop called. Customer Service is suck. I'm dislike att bit I didn't get to vote.

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.

Well im a canadian user so i cant ***** at at&t but i dont believe in their surveys ,its easy to say your extremely satisfied by the phone when you just switched from a krazer or other **** phones ,i have both a N95 nokia and an iphone and out of the 2 the nokia works way better ,maybe not as exciting as my 3gs but phone wise to make and receive calls it doesnt get close.dont get me wrong i love my iphone but im not a fanboy when it comes to apple so i would say im satisfied but not extremely ,i never was with the iphone and owned all 3 generations,the 3gs so far is the one with the most battery issues for me ,i really dont understand that 97% are extremely satisfied by it and dont believe it one bit ,my 2 cents on the subject.cheers
Ps: i use both phones on the same network and the nokia never goes down where the iphone does ,so a lot of you seems to think it is network related when most of the time its the phone which has issues .all of you guys should try other phones in the same places your iphone fails to pickup network you might be surprised and find out the 50% if not more of the time its the phone not the network

agreed, love the iphone. very displeased with AT&T exclusivity.

I hate AT&T as a corporation, but I honestly wouldnt want to switch from AT&T with my iPhone if their plans didnt bend me over so far!!
I pay an average of $103 mo., and I get...
1500 SMS messages, NO MMS Message ability
Sprint on the other hand, for $100 mo., i'd get...
UNLIMITED SMS AND MMS Messages
etc, etc, etc...
Similar features from AT&T (and they don't even have them all) would be over $270 mo.
AT&T uses the ''iPhone exclusive'' as an excuse to NOT be competitive, and to rip people off!!! Count me into that 55%.
Meanwhile... all these losers with 400 FICO scores pay $40 a month flat to Criket or MetroPCS and can unlimited text and babble 24-7 to nobody about nothing!!!

I for one am very happy with both my iPhone 3G S and AT&T. I have never had a problem with them and I ALWAYS have a signal. I'd be fine with the iPhone staying with AT&T because I probably wont use any other service. The only problem I have with AT&T (which isn't really that big of a deal) is that my 3G data can be a little sluggish at times. I've found them to be very reliable and I've been with them for so long I have a plan that hasn't been offered for years that's low cost with PLENTY of minutes and unlimited everything else. So I'm happy with my iPhone and my service.
Oh and I haven't even had but maybe 2 dropped calls since I've been using the iPhone and that was with the first gen. My 3G and 3G S haven't dropped a call.
