I have been a Verizon customer for over 10 years. I have been a Mac user for 2 years. After a few of my local friends have been surviving with their iPhones in my area I decided to give ATT wireless another try. In the past they have been miserable at best.
Well here we are in 2009 and they still suck donkey gonads...! They deserve a class action suit for their bogus television commercials. You know the one. The one that says "more bars in more places" Bullcrap man!! They are able to say that because of their global footprint. it is a legal loop hole in the world of advertising. I drop calls everyday and I live just outside of New York City. Amazing! You might expect this if you live in a super rural part of New York or Pennsylvania or something.
I hate ATT and I hate Apple for doing an exclusive with this dishonest and sneaky organization. I also learned recently that you cannot get insurance for you iPhone from Apple or ATT. How awesome is that !! I have had my phones insured on Verizon for as long as I can remember.
Do yourself a favor. Call Apple and tell them to do a deal with Verizon and lets put ATT where they belong. They deserve to go out business for ripping off Americans when they controlled the telephone lines. Remember when we paid $.25 a minute to make local calls...!! How Phucked up were those days. We were being bent over by ATT for decades. They are still trying to run their organization the same way. Well I say PHUCK that. Do not be controlled by the phone companies.
When in doubt go with a different phone and a different carrier.
