    If you haven't seen the Wired story, you need to read it. Here: http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/07/ff_att_fail/all/1

    Bottom line, you've all been played for suckers. You've been billed above-market rates for substandard service, including dropped calls, capped bandwith, and more failures than all -- and I do mean all -- the other cellular networks combined.

    Apple and ATT have not been able to deliver on the promises, and these failures accelerated mightily after the release of iPhone 3G, a misnomer if there ever was one. iPhone 4 may be the biggest fail yet -- reception problems, capped bandwith, and even more dropped calls. And for the glory of the iPhone 4 fail, you get to pay even more money with fewer plan choices. You people need your heads examined. Seriously.

    I hate talking to people on their iPhones, because the call invariably gets dropped or the reception is utter garbage. Again, this is noticeable with iPhone.

    We'll stick with Verizon and T*Mobile (our two service providers) and our cheap "talkies" from Nokia. We pay far far less per month than you iPhoners. Our cellular networks are stable. We don't have reception problems. Our calls don't drop. And our phones sound great.

    Sure, maybe I can't watch pr0n, play a game, download music and look at photos on our simpler Nokia phones. Well iPhoners, you can keep all that jazz. Our cell phones work with minimal expense and no frustration. Number of cell phone complaints we've made the past year? Zero. Our Verizon, T*Mobile and Nokia stuff simply works. It's a tradeoff we are happy to make.

    HAHAHHHAHA...and you spend your time posting here? Seriously you are a looser. There is no reason to lash out because you can't afford an iphone. Im sure one day you will graduate from bathrooms to fries and you never know, with a little luck maybe you can get a shuffle.

    I am one of several partners. We run a firm. We are very successful. And we spend more on Apple products in six months than you will in a lifetime.

    What now?


    (Still don't understand why people throw their money away on a failed network with a product that overpromises yet fails to deliver.)

    typically, successful business professionals can produce written text that's a bit more intelligible...

    (still don't understand why people troll)

    Sprint and Verizon cost just as much. I really wish people would stop claiming it's more bang for your buck, because it really isn't. It's only a few bucks cheaper, morons...

    :confused:.

    Actually Verizon and ATT cost about as much, Sprint is noticeably cheaper if you get all smartphones.

    Well the cheapest you can get is about the cheapest you can get on AT&T/Verizon, it's just that you get more for the same amount.

    I can't seem to own a smartphone on any carrier for less than $70-ish a month. :|

    Can no one think on their own any more? I'm getting more and more annoyed with the new iPhone users. Please take a minute and realize what kind of impact the iPhone had on the entire cell phone market. From the manufacturers to the network and indescribable volume of usage from iPhone users. Then post back.

    I don't see Steve Jobs on the ShamWow forum wasting his time... Don't like it, don't buy it. Think it sucks, don't buy it. Think people are stoopid for buying it, don't buy it.
    If you feel some body's kid looks ugly, make a mental note to never have sex with someone who looks like the mother, but keep it to yourself!

    Hell, I feel the same way about Rolex but I don't go on their forum and say dumb ****. know your audience is one of the first things you learn while getting an MBA.
