Switching from iPhone to this device and Verizon

Sorry, but I had the iphone 2.0 without too many issues then I switched to iphone 3G. Big mistake. I have had it with this phone and service is lousy. I have always wanted a cool phone on the best network in the states. Now it will work on GSM too? I can travel without any worries. This will hurt ATT and the lousy iphone. I could care less about the few features my iphone has over the Storm. Now I get a better camera, text messages again!! with video and pics, etc etc etc... Waiting patiently... Glad I can get enough on ebay for my iphone to pay for the phone and canceling my service...

Um, ok, thanks for telling us. But my service w/ ATT is way better than with Verizon and Verizon's rates stink and they are a crappy company so sorry VZW no business.

THANK YOU!

AT LEAST SOMEONE can see that the Rates ARE THE SAME!

Verizons and AT&Ts plans are the same price and everything. EXCEPT Verzion gives you UNLIMITED Nights And Weekends on the 39.99 plan and AT&T has a cut of point, not unlimited.

So in the long run, Verizon gives you more on that plan for your money in a small way.

AND RIM and Verizon have a deal where Verizon requires a Data plan with Blackberrys. Its not just Verizon.

I'm assuming you have no knowledge with the world of business and investments.

VZW ROI and profitability is higher than AT&T. I'd rather make my investment into VZW than AT&T. Unfortunately VZW is a private company so you won't bea ble to do that. If VZW is such a crappy company, why is their profitability margin higher than AT&T? Even much so, AT&T and VZW basically have the same rates.

The last time I checked, I have never dropped so many calls or had so many distorted calls than I've had with AT&T and my iPhone. When I had Verizon, I had 100% PERFECT reception and never once dropped a call!!! Verizon is by far the BEST company when it comes to coverage and call quality!

You are just jealous that Verizon has better Customer Service... AT&T's VOICE MAIL is RUDE to you! Let's not even start about the incompetent call center! Also... the rate plans are exactly the same, the coverage is better, and at least Verizon tries its best to approve only the most reliable devices for the network.

ATT fanboy blown apart... haha! Gees, I work for ATT, but I'm not about to come into this discussion, say some ridiculously retarded things about rates being different (when they are the same), then come in and say how crappy Verizon Service is (when it is not), and then make an ass out of myself... because we'll be honest, I'd get ripped apart like the moron who just said something. Yikes! Laughing

my god this is forum to discuss phones not belittle companys to provide service. its alittle crazy that people have nothing better to do than to sit on here and belittle themselves and talk about things they have little knowledge about. Honestly ive been in this business for awhile now and i tell it how it is, no service is gauranteed PERIOD. I dont care who you have service with, its never gonna be 100%.

I didn't intend to have bashing back and forth. I was just expressing my dissatisfaction with my iPhone that I have loved for over a year. I am very unhappy with Apple AND ATT for not thinking this through with the issues that continue to bog down both the phone and service. There is no doubt that Verizon does have the best service, but their phones are not up to par with the other companies. I plan on seeing if this might be the phone that finally does it.

The signal is different in different markets, so no company is really better. verizon is known for targeting unpopulated areas. while in metropolitan at&t has some of the most advanced coverage. at&t is also the largest company in the nation. The downfall to the i-phone is the features, the phone does next to nothing. id love to get ahold of the new blackbery.
