    I have an iPhone and AT&T has official pissed me off. I don't want to go into details but I think I'm going to cancel my contract and go to Verizon. What is a good phone Verizon has out now? Not neccessarily a smartphone, just a cellphone.

    AT&T coupled with the iphone is an atrocious setup. I have been pissed from day 1. I thought nextel was bad but AT&T horrible.

    I'd be mad pissed if I were like the millions of iPhone users out there on AT&T using it with stock applications and whatever else it comes with stock. If jailbreaking and the whole dev community for the iPhone didn't exist, I probably wouldn't have one :o

    And fuck AT&T's outrageous prices, Sprint and T-Mo ftw :bowdown:

    Verizon isn't really an upgrade. You can't really take your sim card and transfer it from phone to phone...because you don't get a sim card with Verizon.

    Verizon - not a smart phone- go with the new chocolate.

    some comments...
    I live in the country ... was a Cingular customer for 3.5 years ... they kicked me to the curb cause i was in the 1% of people that roamed more than 50% of the time. The tower closest to me was Dobbson. Dobbson is now AT&T ... freaking bastards.

    Have sprint now and can't copy ringtones from my PC to the phone like i could with Cingular.

    Saw a laptop at the CTIA show in Vegas at the Sprint WiMax booth;

    8192 kbps download. Very impressive. Deployed first in Washington/Baltimore area, then Chicago, Dallas Ft. Worth and then ... i dunno.

    A keyboard salesman showed me his iphone and i have to say it was pretty impressive at least for the 10 minutes he showed me stuff.

    so... i'm actually an AT&T employee. Well, I will be until May 3rd at least, that's my last day because I'm quitting. When it was still Cingular I loved my job, I felt good about the way the company treated us, and our customers... ever since the buyout I have been more and more appalled by this company and I had to finally get out. So appalled in fact that I have sworn to never carry another ATT service for as long as I can possibly help it. I've switched my phones over to Verizon and I'll be using cable internet here in the next month or so.

    Trust me when I say you aren't the only pissed off customer, and I'm not the only pissed off employee... since January, 60% of our staff has quit including 3 people have have been with the company 5+ years, and 3 more that have been here at least a year.

    in my area i have better reception with less dropped calls than i did with sprint or tmobile, i haven't had verizon service but after a year with at&t i gotta say it's much better service in my area at least than sprint or tmobile
    sprint i had calls dropping constantly
    tmobile i had shit reception at my house for some reason, a 1/2 block away was fine but it was as if my block was a black hole for tmobile
    at&t, well i never really seem to drop a call, so far so good

    You could always unlock the iphone to work for T-Mobile?
