Let's review their points for a second...

Nations Fastest 3G Network: Ok, given the ideal situations, yes, their speed is the fastest. However, that speed only exists in like Chicago, and it's INCREDIBLY unreliable. The rest of their coverage around the country is slower than Sprint or Verizon. So on a whole, that's a bunch of malarkey.

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...

I like this post because it breaks down the truth behind the scenes but so did the at&t customers in the verizon commercial threads. but the more effective counter is not defending yourself with explanations. its more effective when you start punching back. but this commercial was like wee-man punching Mike tyson, like throwing at a train coming directly at you. It just dont beat verizons let alone even out.

AT&T can used unlocked phones that have Android, and verizon is so excited to just get Android, LOL there about a year or two behind

Seriously? Way to "review the points" and try to break them down as if they are anymore inaccurate than the Verizon add was.

Nation's fastest 3G network : Yes, their technology has the fastest hypothetical speed currently available. Do you always get that speed? Of course not, but you never get the hypothetical speed with DSL, Cable, Satellite internet, or any other type yet the cable company still attempts to boast the fastest speed because their copper can theoretically cary more bandwidth.

Talk and Surf: AT&T is the only company that allows this. Period. I am a proud T-mobile subscriber and this is a feature I've been begging them to turn on for years. Their phone / network just doesn't do it. I was at lunch a few weeks ago with ...

You should be an AT&T lawyer. Smile ha funny

Some good points, but not 100% accurate, mainly the part about T-Mobile. You can do voice and data at the same time if you have a 3G device and get 3G coverage. If you are in an EDGE area or do not have a capable of phone, then of course it doesn't work. But it works fine for me on my G1, myTouch, TM506, and Cliq. That's because its GSM. Its not a feature the carrier turns on/off. Its either capable of it or not.
