Look you aren't the only customers with access to the iPhone anymore. Now most people can get an iPhone. Quit throwing out BS HSPDA is superior: First thought when choosing a phone. What's the best carrier in your area? If they are on 2G or shotty coverage it doesn't matter how fast it is. Secondly unless you are downloading large files you probably aren't going to notice the speed. Why? I am glad you asked. It's called ping. Verizon's ping is fast averaging around 200. AT&T averages 350. This means if you are pulling 7mbps on AT&T and I am pulling 2mbps on Verizon our pages will open at the same pace. Silmultaneous Voice and Data: Really? Have you watched the AT&T commercials? There is a guy at work, a guy at home, and a guy at the coffee shop. What do all 3 of these have in common? It's called wifi. Even AT&T can't think of a place where it's needed. LOL Give it up. Everyone for the most part can have an iPhone and now it's a world phone, so you don't have that advantage either. Everyone can now choose a carrier based on what's best for them.
