Slow Carriers

What is with these SLOW carriers? The USA really needs to speed up with the GSM techno vibe. T-Mobile is really lacking on nice phones packed with tons of features. Verizon, in my opinion, is doing the best. T-Mobile needs to really kick it with EDGE in the summer, because it is behind on the cell phone train. Cingular is to busy with trying to make its plans better, and providing new services like streaming TV that it has no focus on the make and model of the cell phone. There are so many great phones out there that are just sitting in the Manufacturing Office, waiting to be service .(metaphorically speaking) Verizon is issuing nice phones and and services, like V-Cast. CDMA is beating GSM by the mile.... Surprised

Not true. Look at all the cool phones Verizon has Rolling Eyes! Prior to the Cingular/AWS merger ATT had UMTS in I belive 8 Cities, they had a nationwide EDGE over lay. Now I think cingular is working on a EDGE overlay correct me if i am wrong, but hands down Cingular has the best phones on the market at this time, and Verizon has a lot of work to do to catch up.

Since they merged, ATT has no more UMTS. Verizon is the best... What are you talking about? I must say that I disagree.

Yeah ATTWS/CINGULAR Do have UMTS. http://www.attwireless.com/umts/home.html.
Why would a carrier who was contractually oblidged to launch umts just decide to scrap it after a merger?

Actually as a former At&t rep, the only reason that Cingular would reccomend getting a new at&t phone is mainly for people that want UMTS. Cingular is actually planning on using the current UMTS as a way of testing it for future use. And Cingular Edge is actually decent now due to the merge, granted it still needs a little work.
