Verizon.... Sucks

Just left Verizon after years. Had been using their BB's and I love them. Verizon customer service sucks though. Had multiple problems with a Pearl and they kept telling me they sent a new one. Weeks later, still no phone. So on Black Friday when the iPhone 3gs Refurb was selling for $49 in the 16gig, I jumped ship. Bought 2 of them. Had 2 phones on my account (1 in contract, 1 out) and canceled a contracted. iPhone kills BB anyday. Verizon missed the boat on this one. The Driod can never compare.

I REALLY, REALLY want the Iphone......

BUT.....ATT Sucks. It is just that simple.

My buddy who lives in Tucson switched from Verizon to ATT so he could have the iphone. Now when talking to him there are many more dropped calls and garbled speach.

I recently flew to Tucson and we drove to Malta Montana. I had Verizon coverage when he had none and many more times I had 3G when he did not. He drove most of the time so I had my laptop teathered to my phone surfing the net. This really pissed him off.

I want the iphone but will not get one until verizon does. Having an iphone on att is like driving a porche on a dirt road.

Multi-taskingon the Iphone??

Short of jailbreaking, are there any apps that I'm just not seeing that would allow me to multi-task. If I was in an app and received a text I could jump out of the app and send a response without having to restart the app??

Tether& alk at the same time?

Wondering if you can use the iphone to tether for a laptop to use the internet connection from it AND talk on it at the same time?

Thinking with AT&T's new plans we may be able to save money by doing this as right now we have dedicated accounts for our laptops through Verizon - quite expensive.

Since I've heard you can browse the internet and talk at the same time on AT&T's network thinking we may be able to utilize that for tethering our laptops?

iPhone on Verizon anytime soon?

I love my iPhone but I am not that happy with AT$T. I had heard rumors that Verizon was going to carry the iPhone sometime in the future. Anyone hear any supposed dates?

iPhone with Verizon's reliability is too much to pass up. I will jump ship in a heart beat. The ONLY thing keeping me on AT$T is the iPhone.

Longing for the iPhone much?

Drooling Drooling Drooling Drooling

I do not own an iPhone. So why am I here? I like to read the reviews. *Deep sigh* The iPhone is special. because in ten years of wireless sales and service, I have not felt that it was a big deal that a phone was not offered on my carrier of choice. This is just not cool! Free the iPhone, AT&T!

iPhone Tethering

I cannot buy the phone until either Apple or AT&T allows tethering so it can be used as a modem. Does anyone know the status or workarounds? Thanks.

3GS not working on 3G

My 4-5 month old 3gs is having problems with three g. When 3G is enabled, it is incredibly slow and sometimes does not work at all (error message states "could not start cellular data network" or something). Soft restart helps the situation for a bit but after a few minutes of browsing it reverts to crap. AT&T guy said maybe I need a new sim card? Does this sound right? Using edge for now but I want three g back!!!!!!!

Ipod Problems with my iphone since latest update

I just updated to 3.1.2? i think it was, the latest version of the Iphone OS (update as of 10/10/09) and since then i have had to reset my Iphone to factory settings TWICE!!! My Iphone puts all my music on the ipod and switches it from "Music" to "other" thus not allowing me to play them. When i connect it to itunes on my computer it shows that i have all the memory from my music but its not viewable, you cant view files in the "other" category.

Im really frusturated because it takes like 1 hr 30mins to get my memory back on the iphone.

Any ideas?

Problems getting pic messages

Is there anyone having problems receiving pic messages on the iphone. I have and it is somewhat frustrating when you get the pic 7 to 9 hours later. I have had At&t for about 4 months and I am very satisfied with the iphone, but the service has dropped calls on a daily basis and now not receiving pic messages tops it. Just wondering if there is anyone else having the same problem. I am past the point of an apology from At&t making it all better. Crying or Very sad
