I personally love AT&Ts customer service. Friendly and very knowledgeable from what I've had to deal with. Even with AT&Ts crappy service in this area I will NOT go to Verizon. I've known so many people that hate their service overall I can't think of switching.
The biggest thing I fear with multiple carriers is the jailbreak. How in the hell will that work out? Cause I'll never have an unjailbroken iPhone.

Haha.. I'm going to laugh when Verizon's network has a masseive influx of data usage and becomes awful. Part of the reason their network is "so much better" than ATT is they don't have to handle nearly as much data.
Is ATTs network great? Probably not, but what do you expect when the amount of data on their networks has grown exponentially year after year? I know you all saw the article that said ATT is faster, has more signal strength, and less dropped calls than Verizon in the cities some private company tested in. Yeah, maybe ATT sucks if you live in east bumfuck, and maybe Verizon is a better solution in that rare case. But overall ATT has a better network if you don't live in a rural areal.
I've had T-Mo, Sprint, and ATT and as far as I can tell ATT is by far the best I've ever used. But then again I don't live in the middle of nowhere.
Also, I hope all of you that are so eager to switch to VZN enjoy your $350 Early Termination Fee.

Did anyone actually pay attention to the chart of how much AT&T has been spending on their network? It seems everyone just looked at the bars going down.
AT&T spent at least $3 billion on their network in almost every quarter. $3 billion times 4 quarters over 3 years is at least $36 billion in 3 years. Verizon spent about half of that in the same time.
Yes, Verizon spent $27 billion on Alltel, but they got 15 million new paying customers in that deal, and boosted their coverage in rural areas without any work on their part. AT&T doesn't even have that option. The only other GSM carrier big enough to bother with (T-Mobile) won't improve their coverage, and will only add a bunch of cheap customers who can't afford AT&T plans.Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

Verizon sucks, wah wah wah... Do I sound like an anti-AT&T fanboy with my incessant ******** about the dumbest things yet?Respect your elders.

You are incorrect. 100% of people with verizon wouldn't know if they are on 3g or Edge because CDMA (VZW and Sprint) do not have edge. CDMA's version of EDGE is 1xrtt or 1x for short. Also Verizon and Sprints 3g network is EVDO Rev. A while AT&T's is UMTS. Totally different technology's. That is why our wireless sucks in the states because of two different technology's. LTE AFAIK should make things a lil easier on us tho. On the positive side it does or at least should create competition.

AT&T plans to begin LTE trials in 2010, with deployment beginning in 2011.

I was told that T-Mobile has a faster 3G network than both AT&T and Verizon. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I would like to know if this is true.
12-18-2009, 09:06 PM #33
Lol I wonder if sprint wants to get in this conversion when they roll out 4g for phones
12-18-2009, 09:13 PM #34
How do you know? Did you research it? The reason why I ask is because a friend of mine is a supervisor for T-Mobile customer service and she don't lie very often. And I really want to know how true it is. Anybody? Thanks.

AT&T and verizons is just faster. Just ask and ull see.
At least I'm pretty sure

Root Wireless did testing of 3G network performance in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, San Francisco and Washington, DC, and its results were conclusive: AT&T's 3G downloads were faster than Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile's in each of those seven cities.

I will go back to verizon in a heartbeat if they get the Iphone. In my area there is no 3g coverage and really spotty edge.With verizon I would have 3g so I don't care if at&t has faster or not because most people can't get there 3g coverage anyway.
