    Anyone care to share their 3G speed results using ATT vs Verizon? Trying to gauge this as with my iPad1, 3G is spotty and really bogs down indoors... And when visiting my Father in law in Palatine - next to impossible to get ANY signal up there even with my Clear 4G...

    As if anyone needed another reason not to go to Palatine.

    ATT data is horrible to non-existent in many parts of Hinsdale (particularly between 55th street and the tracks) on my iPhone 4. It's not so bad that I'm going to break my contract and pay an ETF, but I will definitely consider a Verizon phone in a year or two (of course, by then, it will probably be 4G/LTE, and maybe AT&T will be better).

    Of course, that's just one specific opinion about one specific area... surely there's a map for that (no pun intended).
