I know there are a lot of haters with AT&T and Verizon lovers for some reason. But I gotta say I have never waited the full two years to upgrade my Iphone and AT&T has always given me an early upgrade. My friend just went into Verizon and checked his status. He has to wait until 2013! Verizon wanted 300 dollars to upgrade his crappy pantech phone that has been giving him trouble from day one. Now granted he is only about 10 months into his contract but wow there was NO early upgrade option at all his option was 300 dollars or use the pantech texting phone until 2013! Got my Iphone 4 about 14 months ago and Bam first day the 4s was out I was eligible! BTW in my area AT&T is faster with 3g and unless I am in a mountainous area it rarely drops calls. So just my story the 4S downloads faster and I do call and surf a lot and i love the wireless sync of IOS5. Any other AT&T users that love the service? BTW I switched initially to AT&T because at my home the verizon signal was horrible and AT&T would give 4 bars in my basement.
