    I just logged in to try to get some account info for the switch to Verizon tonight, and look what I got.

    Edit: I just called up and was able to get my account info, no questions asked. I guess this is just a random coincidence that their online account service happens to be down right before the iPhone 4 launch on Verizon.

    I guess they wanted to inconvenience them millions of subscribers just to delay the small minority of AT&T customers willing to jump ship :rolleyes:

    Its more likely an unscheduled outage, or problem with their system

    I would go with the unscheduled outage. Could they had normal maintenance plan so there was reduced servers to handle the load at the time and then the ones that were online got over loaded. You see maintenance at around that after midnight when the normal drops.
    People buying the Verizon iPhone were logging in to check stuff like you pushed the web stuff beyond what they had the power to handle at the time.

    They are having so many calls to switch that the system is being overwhelmed.

    Many jumping ship - I know a few who say the only complaint with their AT&T iPhone is the dropped voice calls...

    I don't have that problem - on T-Mobile, of course... ;)

    Wow, a website that gets millions of hits had a small glitch. How dare they. The bastards.

    Sorry, but you are quite mistaken. It is clearly a conspiracy!

    Don't be silly. Tin foil will shield signals on CDMA networks, not GSM.
