No one has ever stated T could handle 10 Million customers. Giiirrrlll said they would not get 10 Million customers and could handle the ones they did get.
You 'remember' someone saying they could? Where's the post?He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

09-06-2009, 11:09 AM #64AT&T in Twin Cities
In the Twin Cities AT&T service could stand improvement. Let me rephrase, it sucks. I live in the west metro and I regularly drop calls in my home and throughout my community. And the service has degraded over time, especially over this summer. I spoke w / AT&T this morning, gave them my address and inquired about network updates and improvements. I was told several new towers are being built in the coming week. I look forward to seeing what, if any, improvements come about.
Problems I've been experiencing here and while traveling throughout my community and in other cities:
1. Dropped calls. They. Constantly. Drop. Out.
2. Intermittent connectivity. Words dropping out of conversations when I'm on the phone. Also garbled sound.
3. No ring when receiving a call then voicemail appears. This may be the biggest drain on my patience.
4. S-L-O-W D-A-T-A speeds. As in glacier-like speed. Not your father's dial-up service from 1995 but close.

What speeds do you get? (speedtest.net app is free from the App store)
There will always be areas of bad service but the US system is highly anti competitive so, unfortunately, you can't just swap SIMs like you can in the civilised world.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Hey! Foreigners can't make US jokes! It's just not right... tsk tskk...I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

If I were at the liberty to modify or mak changes to my account I wouldn't have a job anymore. I pay $153 for $59.99 Family Talk 700 minutes, 2 $30 iPhone data plans, $30 family Messging unlimited, $9.99 per additional line, plus tax. You DO get a company discount but that basically rids you of tax and some after you calculate. I recommend to the person saying he gets dropped calls to change out your SIM card if you haven't done so already.Android user suffering from iPhone withdraw.

$150 for 2 lines? I still prefer my £20 for one line but I only get 900 mins or 1800 tesxts and unlimited (well 3Gb limit) data.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Wow that's a nice price. You can't get prices like that in America...I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

AT&T and Verizon are expensive. The cheapest is probably T-Mobile with Sprint up at bat. That's how much I pay. Do I agree? No but as stated previously I prefer AT&T because I never have problems with service in NJ or problems with my bill being a mess. Every month my balance is always the same and it gets paid without a fuss.
I remember when I had sprint & t-mobile. I never knew that one can make a payment on your cellphone bill and the payment be applied to another persons account. For T-Mobile I would walk down the block every day at night to talk on my phone because I didn't get reception on my block. Sprint billing was always a pain but luckily they were very lenient on fixing the issue they screwed up.
To the people complaining about customer service just keep in mind that you have to treat people like you want to be treated. In my experience if a person calls in and starts yelling at you off the bat insisting this and that it puts your mood at a different level and makes it harder to deal with that person who think YOU were the one who knocked a tower out of commission. Yes the hold times could be the factor in the attitudes customers have when calling in but that's life.
Try calling Verizon FIOS. I got hung up on 3 times yesterday and 2 of those times it was by the automatic system telling me "your call cannot be completed call back later, click" (after holding the line for 40 minutes).Android user suffering from iPhone withdraw.

You pay way to much in the USA - but then you have no competition so have no choice.
Strange, but true!

You pay for what you get. The more expensive you pay, usually the better OVERALL coverage (not in a specific area). Verizon is the most expensive but it is the best.
T-mobile is the least expensive of the big boys but it's the least OVERALL reliable.
Metro is cheap.. but it's a piece of sh!t.I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

T-Mob is cheap in the UK and the best...

T-mobile is the best in LA where I used to live. In OC you can get full bars in one place, take 10 steps, and then be at no signal (my school's like that )

I'm really not sure that the asynchronous frequencies used in the USA for UMTS do them any favours.

You mean favors

Downloading = favors
uploading - favours
Asynchronous is not right when it comes to frequencies...

Easily done, just turn the lights out when you are travelling at the speed of light and you would never hear us again..
