*yawn* AT&T can keep the iphone. Actually, nah, let others have it and further expose how bad the AT&T 3G network coverage is. I can't wait for someone I work with to get a Verizon iphone and compare it to the AT&T guys iphones here. Heck I'd love to see an iphone on the sprint network here. Sprint for me is screaming fast mobile broadband and easily bests verizon speeds locally. I just have to laugh when I see the iphones at work with the ugly EDGE icon on the display. muwahahaha.
I'd love to know what Apple got paid for AT&T exclusivity. Had to be massive $.
I have actually read many articles saying that the Iphone's architecture is actually to blame for the poor performance, it might be the other way around being on other carriers and will showcase the problems with the iphone.
Maybe so. Either way, I don't particularly care all that much. I have android powered phone on sprint and really like it. I have an itouch, in all honestly, I like it alot too, but I've used an iphone and it just doesn't seem right when you get into the actual cell data and call functionality. Wifi it works just like my itouch, but 3g data just craps out alot (granted it's only EDGE coverage here so not really 3g). Calls just seem to get dropped even with good signal.
The AT&T coverage for the iPhone where I am at is great. When I had the iPhone, I was getting 2.5MB speeds.
Lucky you, I will one day own an iPhone on The Largest 3G network(Verizon)!!!!I routinely get 2 meg down since my market got the 3g upgrade. I am quite happy with the Iphone and AT&T for that matter.
I like the Android phones, but now that I have 3G, I'm cool with AT&T.
