    They are both still evil empires at this point, the difference is that ATT figured they'll get your money either way and Apple is out to rip it from your cold dead hands therefore they kiss every inch of your *** to do it.

    I hate how Steve Jobs always has a short response and he's "always" right

    I read most of the responses here and have to laugh!

    I think Giorgio Galante is being a whiny little baby. "Move my upgrade date up or I'll hold my breath until I turn blue!!" Really? He signed the contract and should live up to it. HE had a choice to pick at&t and iPhone. HE picked it now he should live with the choice and not expect "special" treatment (moving upgrade date). He also says how big his bill is.... again, he knew what the cost would be when he signed the contract so no need to cry about it now. Between my wife and I our at&t bill is around $170, guess I should shoot a letter off to at&t ********, even though I knew what it was going to be when I SIGNED the contract.
    As for him whining about the new data plans (that won't affect him in the least bit)why does he care? He stated that he doesn't use 2gig a month so even if he HAD to switch (which he doesn't) it STILL wouldn't affect him. All these people blowing up about the new pricing is a joke. No one with an iPhone now has to change plans, no one, nadda, nil, zilch, zero people. The new pricing will bring even more people to at&t and iPhone seeing as the mandatory $30 data price was a big thing holding a lot of people back. I think if the majority of people crying about the new pricing were honest with themselves they would see they simply don't use as much data as they think (plus it makes no difference because they don't need to switch anyway.) Of course tethering is a different animal but that is not the argument here.

    Now all things being said, I think at&t handled it stupidly and I'm sure that is being taken care of. Giorgio is crying because he didn't get his way and have his upgrade date moved up so he threw a bit of a fit.... I say see ya later and I look forward to his next whiny letter to Verizon/T-Mobile/Sprint when THEY won't give him his way. I know it's popular to hack on at&t, but each and every person knew what they were getting into when they signed on the dotted line, now man up and deal or pay the etf and see ya later.

    So where are all the idiots that keep defending AT&T? Can you not think of any way to apologize for this BS they came up with. I laugh every time on of you morons tries to defend anything this company does or says. I'm really tired of being right about them, they don't care about anything other than money. What they can't cheat out of their customers they'll go whining to the US Government to get. What a joke.

    This is what I said.....so in what way does that statement "defend" at&t in any way? So maybe the "morons" are the ones that can't read.

    Simple solution to your problem, ditch at&t. If you don't like their service, data plans, rate plans, phones, color of their logo what ever simply change providers it's really THAT simple.

    i think its funny how many hate att. yet by the end of this month they will have the new iphone and nice shiny new 2yr contract to go with it. i happen to love att i live in hawaii and can be out in the middle of a rainforest out in the mountains and i still have 3-4 bars 3g customer service has never treated me. if i have a problem i call they fix it or give me credits to make up for it. i used to work att so im better off than most ppl here i get a huge monthly discount and my iphone data is only 12 for unlimited but before i worked there i loved the service if i didnt like it iw oudl have left. i dont see why ppl are on here to complain about the service other than its the trendy thing to do. its simple if u dont like the service pay the ETF and leave or wait it out and leave dont sit and clutter place like this up it gets annoying after awhile

    if i were this guy i would contact my local newspaper publisher or something similar and make this public. This, I think is outrageous. This just proves at&t's horrible customer support.

    At what point did I ever say anything to you? Oh, that's right. I DIDN'T. It was a general rant not directed at a particular individual. Simple solution to your problem, learn to read. I never said anything about you, to you, in response to your post, your opinion, or in your direction. Figure out how to read posts and respond to the correct people, it's really THAT simple.
