So I called AT&T to find out when my contract ended, and was given a mid-July date by the phone rep, which made sense since I bought my 3G shortly after launch in July 08. She asked me why I wanted to know, and I told her so I could entertain other wireless carriers, hardware, etc. and make a decision as to my future mobile needs. But I didn't want to pay an ETF, which she informed me would be $60-70 if I left before then. What was really odd is that she gave me all that info and not once asked why I was looking to switch carriers, what issues I might be having, or what factors were going into my decision making process so that could have the opportunity to save my business. Not that I would buy AT&T stock, but it doesn't bode well for their company to see that they could care less about who leaves or doesn't. I know the iPhone brings them record number of new customers and that the 3GSX, 4G, iPhone HD or whatever it will be called this summer will only add to that as long as there isn't a subsequent Verizon launch a few months late. But it just seemed odd that they really didn't give a ____. Reasons I would want to leave in order of importance: 1. Network and dropped calls is abysmal still! 2. See #1 again. 3. I really can't stress the first 2 enough. 4. Bill seems to keep going up for no reason, no extra usage. Maybe everyone does this with "fees" etc. But their SMS plans for the iPhone are ridiculous. And I'm on one of them so I'm not paying for SMS a la carte. 5. Still no tethering available for the iPhone, and with the iPad 3G coming out, I don't expect to see it. Certainly not free of charge. 6. I would have considered a 3G iPad had they opted to give iPhone contract customers a plan combo for iPhone and iPad 3G service, but screw that as their 3G is horrible anyway. Reasons I would keep my iPhone in order of importance: 1. It syncs my Contacts, Mail, Calendars with MobileMe great and I love that functionality. 2. There are some Apps, Maps for finding and calling and traffic, and a few others that are indispensable to the iPhone and not really iPad type Apps. Maybe I really need to consider a dumbphone and get better phone service as the top priority.
