There are reams of research on interface design. While you accuse VZW of forcing their view of the interface, you are similarly assuming everyone wants their own independent interface.

God you're a moron. Again, you're in finance per your own admission and given the current state of the economy, its easy to see how we got to where we are with morons like you at the helm.

GG Joe.

Why do you assume that everyone wants what you want?

Hae you noticed that you're the only one that ever brings up the point you bring up? How much experience do you have with the UI on the VZW phones? You have AT&T I don't think you really make any vadil points seeing you have no experience with any of the phones you constantly bash.
Apparently the "same" thing is working for people. VERY few people even know that phones have a different UI and couldn't care less. The majority has a phone to use as a phone.

I hate to say it, but you still fail at forums.

Nothing else to be happy about?

1. Roll Over (yes it is a great feature)
1. OPEN SOURCE use any phone anytime
1. OBEX file transfers on any phone with BT
1. GPS that does not require a $10 a month fee for voice
1. $15 unlimited Internet on Smart phones
1. NATIVE GUIs
1. Highend unlocked unbranded Phones that require no Carrier intervention
1.Contact and entire phone transfers without carrier intervention
1. No cost ringtones no reason to pay for them

There are plenty of reasons ATT still has Mi...

with the exception of the pricing, any GSM carrier can boast those same things. its a matter of GSM or CDMA technology, not VZW vs ATT.

i can use any unlocked phone on Tmo as well, but the service sucks.

also, last time i checked, its still called a cell PHONE, for calls ya know. and if dont dont have service, you still cant get on the net or use some of the other features. so yea no service is no service.

1. Nice, wish VZW had it.
2. Its the difference between CMDA vs. GSM
3. Get with the times retard.
4. I get it for free with my Premium plan.
5. It's not truly unlimited any any carrier. Price is a wash because its the same.
6. Merely a preference choice...

Actually...loads of people just want their phone to call and text, maybe do a bit of Mobile Web.
Stop using yourself as "the cell phone" user. You don't represent anyone.

Being a truth-seeker, why dont you head over to Howard Forums and read about all the people having issues with their new 3G iphones. I am not talking about merely activation issues, but issues maintaining a basic signal.

Good work.
I was up at 3 am too. Does anyone wanna hear what I was doing? No? Ok.

Question: Why doesn't your 3G network reach more than about 40% of the country?
Hate to say but 3G is useless to me and the 200,000 people in my area.

Also, why was your ENTIRE network down in Duluth, MN for about an hour yesterday? Why did dozens of people show up at my kiosk asking why their phone doesn't work?
I got to reply, "Because you have CellOne/AT&T, their network is down."
And you speak of "being greedy" in your post. Why is it that just now the iPhone came down from being $300-$400?

Strange.

Who cares how many Iphones are sold. It is a PHONE. I use my verizon PHONE to make calls. I know it will work everytime, everywhere. So when your car breaks down at 2am and you need to make a PHONE call, have fun when your ATT PHONE has no signal LOL!!!

Thats right if you just want a phone and are afraid of the dark Verizon is the company for you. I wonder what all those brake down folks did in the 50 years before cell phones.....

IN fact if you break down and have no phone there are thousands of people who will stop and make a call for you.

Paranoia is an ugly thing man.....Get over it.

Look at the drama its causing! People say Verizon and Motorola has software issues, gosh look at the iPhone. People have returned them, paying out the butt, overloading wifi networks, making you select a certain plan all this for something thats a headache. Not to mention its on a GSM network instead of something reliable, like CDMA. Until Apple knows how to actally make a phone instead of a toy I wouldn't have it!

To be fair to the iPhone though, I don't think there is a cell phone out there that was as poorly designed and tested as the original Chocolates -- I wouldn't doubt at all if we have a 50% or higher fail rate on those pieces of crap. I see two main phones causing our warranty claims and those are the chocolates and voyagers. BTW, we also require customers to "select a certain plan" if they want the Voyager, Dare or Glyde -- customers have to go to the Nationwide plans which really suck as far as how we charge for data compared to our original plans.

It is really of no use to have "iPhone envy", instead the VZW powers that be should kick themselves for making such a monumental error in judgement as they did when they turned down the iPho...

Not the true (and annoying) apple fan boys.

The phone could be a DOA unit, just sitting there broken with just a blinking screen and they'd STILL tell you that it is the best phone on the planet and that nothing will ever beat it.

Can't reason with an apple fanboy if you have any kind of negative comment about anything apple.

The Verizon network could be non existant somewhere or down, the red phone just sitting there broken with just a blinking screen and they'd STILL tell you that it is the best Network on the planet and that nothing will ever beat it.

Can't reason with a Verizon fanboy if you have any kind of negative comment about anything Verizon.
