    Well there have been COUNTLESS threads, about this carrier that carrier, so to settle this another Poll!

    This would probably give us the best indication about what carrier has had the best reputation for customer satisfaction. In essence which carrier Apple SHOULD have gone for.

    Edit: Bah I forgot Verizon.. use other for Verizon!
    Edit: Uhh someone added verizon? Thank you whoever you were :) If you can edit my title on the poll I put character instead of carrier.. if feel VERY stupid right now.. eh...

    Why did you leave Verizon off the list? They are a major national carrier after all.

    I know a lot of people rag on Sprint, but I have never had a problem with Sprint at all...they have the best voicemail system (I don't think anyone should have to pay for "enhanced" voice mail), never had a dropped call, they pick up the phone immediately when calling customer service, etc.

    I tried Cingular a few times and they had the worst customer service....always have to hold.

    BTW, Sprint and Nextel may be one company now, but they still have very different technologies and you can buy either Sprint or Nextel service.

    Eh cause I had a brain fart, Other is Verizon, couldn't figure out how to edit the dumb thing after I got it up there.

    And though Nextel and Sprint are now together, their networks, (their coverage) will not merge until another year or so. Though the whole Sprint to Nextel thing is now free.

    I'll vote for the first carrier that does away with yearly contracts (without increasing rates)! Until then, none of them get my vote.

    Verizon, just because that's what my family uses. I suppose I wouldn't really care whatever my family uses. They're all the same to me. :confused:

    They all suck in their own special way. I wish we had an Apple MVNO. :(

    I'm rather happy with Nextel. Though, I'll be switching with the iPhone, which is pretty good timing with how quickly Sprint is ruining what Nextel was.

    T-Mobile.

    T-Mobile for one reason: Data plan pricing.

    If you have a data-enabled phone, you can add unlimited data to it for only $30 a month. This is unlimited data on the phone, *AND* unlimited data when 'tethering' it to your computer.

    By contrast, Cingular charges about $80 over-and-above the voice plan price for the same functionality.

    That alone will probably keep me from getting the iPhone.

    If the T-Mobile price is for 3g data access/broadband speeds, that's good. If it's for EDGE speeds, it's as it should be.

    I'm happy with Sprint. For all the flaws, the data access is great and the customer service on the phone is better than average. People in the stores and their knowledge varies as with the other stores.

    They are the same company, but i have heard many complaints about nextel but fewer about sprint....the technologies are very different...so i think it is a good thing that they are separated

    Hmm....it is probably "winning" because more people subscribe to the service.

    How about "least hated carrier"?

    In my case, Digitel TIM

    It is for EDGE, but Cingular charges the same for HSDPA/UTMS as for EDGE-only phones. And when T-Mobile rolls out their UTMS, it should stay the same price. (And since the iPhone is only EDGE, it doesn't really matter, now does it?)
