Default Gotta Give Props to AT&T

Just got off the phone with a customer service rep and for anyone going to Haiti (or know someone that is), AT&T is waiving the international costs. For those involved, not paying 1.50 a minute makes a world of difference. Unlimited voice until the end of February.

Just like to spread good publicity when a company does ya right.

heh... hopefully that's not the case.

And when you live in Hillbilly country like I do, everyone has crappy coverage. I just stick to which company has the best customer service and plans.

Nah, man... this old lesbian is telling me that you can surf the web at the same time you're talking on the phone, so their coverage must be fine... or something...

I heard at&t beefed up their coverage recently - but for the four games I went to (bears preseason, browns, cowboys, pats) couldn't get 3G to work at invesco. Have a friend with an iphone who had the same problem. I'm in the 2nd level end zone, while his seats are 1st level north goal line.

Lol it's funny because the Verizon commercials are all blatant lies, but their fanboys are still butthurt they don't have Iphones.

Btw, AT&T is about to sue the **** out of Verizon for those ads lol. Verizon was hoping to make more money over the holiday season than they will lose when they are sued.

AT&T is mostly based out east. West of the Mississippi they utilize towers Verizon and Sprint have put up, because they dont have many of their own out here. Neither Verizon or AT&T cover 200 million people. Verizon uses CDMA, AT&T uses GSM & TDMA. Verizon tends to be more reliable than AT&T. Also, how many people would give two ****s about AT&T if they did not carry the I-Phone? Even people with the I-Phone hate AT&T for something.

It's well documented the extent to which AT&T sucks, and the lawsuit you reference was dropped because they had no chance to win. The attached article is a good summary.

The only people that think Verizon is more reliable are people that have Verizon. I've never once been somewhere with no signal, where one my verizon friends had signal. Ever.

Also $0 a month for unlimited everything from AT&T > Verizon

Their signal could be better, but Cellular One/Cingular/AT&T has always been good to me.

I'm not sure what their high end plans cost, but their base plans and unlimited internet are reasonable.

Not sure about the iPhone though as I refuse to be one of those Apple sheeple.

That article definitely looks doctored. Should see how much Verizon lined his pockets.

Verizon bought a bunch of Towers out in butt**** montana etc. and is jerking off to their coverage.

How often to you go to butt**** Montana?

And if you do, do you really need 3g while you're hunting?

Some months I only use data and hardly any minutes, guess what I take those minutes with me the next month where I might talk triple would I get per month, but dont get billed extra because my rollover. Nature of how I use my phone. Verizon cant do that for me on the rpice I pay now....I asked them. The sales guy tried to reel me in i said heres what I pay heres what I get, he said sorry cant beat that...because the rollover and using many minutes some months and as said just before this, I never have dropped coverage where someone else does have bars, be it tmoble, verizon, cricket, etc...

You lose your roll over minutes at the start of the new year, you dont get to keep them. I also use my phone for more data than talk, and for that reason Verizon works better for me.

I am sure people who live in Butt**** Montana appreciate having 3G coverage.

AT&T already did sue Verizon. The lawsuit was dismissed because there isn't a word of non-truth in those ads.

My dad works for Verizon. They tried suing then "dropped" the suit the next month. (http://www.alligator.org/blogs/adver...cc4c03286.html) Dad says the judge tossed it out when Verizon's lawyers presented their data to support the claim. Verizon's ad's clearly state that the map is 3G coverage - not voice coverage. Where's the blatant lie in that? I find AT&T's ads much more misleading given that they respond to a 3G coverage map with a voice coverage map without saying so.

As for the iPhone - Dad was told by his supervisor's this past week that Verizon will be getting it. I'm looking forward to dumping AT&T for Verizon when that happens. No way I'm giving up my iPhone in the meantime.
