    Thanks for the post. I can see why it was necessary.

    I wonder how the Blackberries will be...

    LOLz, well it's good to see that everyone thinks Verizon sucks too. I never had problems with their service. Their phone selection made me leave...or lack there of.

    AT$T is code for "they are too expensive."

    DO you think verizon will fold to the 'whiners' in the same way AT&T folded?

    What's a Tour and did that writer know half of what he was talking about? It's as if he called Verizon customer service twice -- instead of media relations, which is where anybody other than a ranter should call -- and has a gilded conclusion. Considering all the "contract, no contract, ex-contract, et tu contract?" language used, I don't think anybody knows what's going on.

    But again, if the author wanted to be taken seriously and not as someone just hacking away at a keyboard, he should've called media relations. Someone in PR will know a LOT more about such a thing than a hired today, fired tomorrow tech support person.

    It's another World Phone, so you can use it anywhere there is a GSM network. It's the Bold, for Verizon (unless I'm wrong...it doesn't look any different, and the feature-set looks the same too).

    Verizon is alright if they just had a better phone selection. I felt the Storm and I couldn't stand the clickyness

    I got it right away first time seeing someone wrote AT$T. Obviously, this isn't your first time seeing it. So, how slow do you have to be to not get it?

    It's not the Bold, it's a whole new model. It doesn't look the same as the Bold. It doesn't have wifi, which the Bold has.

    Well regardless, it's pretty lame to type it that way.

    Thanks :) I didn't see the lack of Wi-Fi part. That's a shame too...but I guess VZW wants you to use their data. But (to me) it looks the same as the Bold, so that's why I assumed it was...guess that's what I get for assuming.

    yeah, not funny at all. AT&T is really not that expensive, you get great phones, great coverage, and its pretty much the same price as verizon. plus rollover minutes.

    you can't compare sprint and AT&T because Sprint's prices are low because they are losing over 40,000 customers every month.

    and T-mobile is 1/2 the price for 1/4 th the coverage and 1/4 the speed.

    It's different if you look closely enough. Look at the tops and the screen sizes:

    Lame? I think it conveys the message pretty well. AT$T is so American and I love it. :D

    I thought it was code that the OP was too poor.

    Can Verizon customers be as dumb as AT&T customers?

    Seems likely.
