AT&T Airs Attack Ad of Its Own
Today AT&T aired a 3G comparison commercial in response to the attack ads that Verizon Wireless has been showing. The ad claims that AT&T has the nation's fastest 3G network, that it lets users talk and surf at the same time, that it offers the most popular smartphones, and that it offers over 100,000 apps. The end of the ad spot says, "AT&T, A Better 3G Experience" in text. AT&T was recently denied a request to prevent Verizon from showing its anti-AT&T attack ads.

AT&T IS A CRY BABY BITCH
AT&T :they made fun of our phones you need to pull them off the TV.
AT&T: ok we will do the samething back to you but make **** up.
VERIZON: your service suck
AT&T we got the Iphone
are we five
let see how long this will last
Talk and Surf.... I am doing it right now on my CDMA phone
But That add is missleading.....
You can as a matter of fact use a HTC Hero and Talk and surf at the same time....
Mom and Pop Attacks AT&T, Too.
Mississippi wireless carrier Cellular South gets in on the act, comparing the HTC Hero to the iphone 3GS.
And kick thier asses.....
they Heavly discount thier upfront Phone prices espically on data phones , the trade off is they have been doing $360 dollar ETFs for at least 2 years ( it goes down 15 dolla...
-Fastest Nation 3G? HaHaHa! its a miracle it even works!!!! they should brag about their edge instead!
-Talk & Text at the same time?? who the heck cares
-Popular smartphones? yea right, well....maybe one only.
-100,000 apps??? and not even 1/3rd of them people use.
Good Luck AT&T. Verizon can actually sue you guys for misleading with "Fastest 3G" lol. Time to spend some money and not be throwing lies like u always do.
Remember?? More bar in more places? Fewest drop calls? all those ads were lies!
And it's not Talk and Text simultaneously, it's talk ...
You can multitask on one feature with Verizon and I'm sure any other ...
New AT&T Luke Wilson Commercial
And because I could care less if both carriers went up in smoke, it's good to see AT&T fight back.
...a pretty classy rebuttal considering Verizon got nasty from the very start.
If that ad is classy then Roseanne Barr is a normal, funny person.
FUNNY... people fighting over grammar on the internet! I thought that was only in the Shop Talk / Lounge forum. But I guess the evils of bad grammar and the brutality of people who think have the answers to the world have no en...
How coverage is reported:
Showing a map of coverage that is painted red, green, orange or blue is great marketing but not as relevant as how many people live or work within the footprint.
It is possible for a carier to have more square miles of coverage and cover less of the population.
Consumers need to learn who is best in their local market where it is relevant to their needs.
In this case AT&T's 3G covers a good percentage of the population if you look at where they have covera...
When 4 G hits... I am sure we will hear about the "millions" of people covered by it while the roll out the sqr mile map
In Black and White
LAME...and I even like AT&T...
If anything, AT&T should be showing that the iPhone can do Twitter/Google Maps everywhere from NYC to LA and all parts of the boonies in between (fishing on a lake) even with EDGE.
Let's review their points for a second...
Talk and surf at the same time: True, BUT only when you're in their 3G coverage. EDGE (which is the vast majority of this coverage) is not able to do this. AND that's not something that AT&T does, it's something GSM does. So they also just gave a shout out to T-Mobile on that one too (though they'll never tell you that. If you ask them, they'll probably pull an Apple and say they invented it).
Most popular smartphones: Again, yes, they technica...
Nation's fastest 3G network : Yes, their technology has the fastest hypothetical speed currently available. Do you always ...
AT&T vs Verizon who loses?
good job at?t !
att still has over 2000 more cell sites than it's leading competitor verizon.
AT&T is really pissed at Verizon
They have bogus statements on their site such as:
"Only AT&T has the fastest 3G network, Verizon doesn't."
"AT&T has the most popular smartphones, Verizon doesn't"
"With AT&T you can talk and browse the web at the same time, you can't do that with Verizon"
"AT&T gives you access to more than 100,000 apps, that's way more than Verizon"
And if you click on a statement it doesn't show you any info beyond AT&T's statement.
What a load of crap. I know you are pissed, AT&T, but geez, this is PATHETIC
You know what this website says:
"OMG, we are losing our iPhone exclusivity next year, we better make ourselves look good"
You can't polish a terd, honey.
You can't polish a terd, honey.
To be honest...
Typically... AT&T doesn't squabble over these incidents. The geekboys/fanboys do it for them! You know what AT&T sees? a 800,000 subscriber increase over Verizon in Q3 2009. Numbers don't lie. It doesn't matter what drove them, whether it was iPhone sales, rate plan pricing, my mother holding guns up to peoples head forcing them to buy the product... NUMBERS NEVER LIE!
The following info is from a mulitude of sites, I also, to the best of my ability, verified the numbers by looking up both AT&T and VZW's End of Quarter Conference Call documents. = )
Q3 2009 - AT&T adds 2 million subscribers. Verizon adds 1.2 million subscribers.
Q2 2009 - AT&T adds 1.4 mi...
Owen Wilson looks like...
They must be the remnnants of Sprint's old management team.
Next AT&T will compare their 3G coverage to Cricket just to validate any argument.
The $60.00 unlimited Go Phone should probably do some damage though.
REVENGE OF THE NERDS!!!!
