Forgive me if this type of question shouldn't be addressed here. I contemplated going to an AT&T forum, if I knew of one. Basically, I just want to know if all these AT&T problems that everyone is complaining about lately (or at least are getting media coverage) are common in the Birmingham, AL, area. I don't travel outside the Southeast that much. I currently have T-Mobile and was waiting for the HTC Touch Pro2 to be released today, before making a decision between that and the iPhone. I've never had a "smartphone" before. But when I saw that the cost of the HTC phone would be $350 (w/ 2-year contract) I am starting to reconsider. I've not completely ruled it out yet, because I still want to go by the store and test it out. After all, it was the top phone on my list (in front of the MyTouch 3G and iPhone). The only thing that has changed is the contract price. But it's enough to really make me consider switching to the iPhone and AT&T.
