    AT&T because I've been with them for over a decade and have been satisfied with their service.

    AT&T because I have a much bigger discount with them and everyone I know has AT&T (so I can get a lower minute plan and use mobile to mobile more often). I had Verizon before the iphone came out and service in TX was hit or miss vs pretty good signal with ATT everywhere I go in TX.

    I had Verizon for years, then we moved and we didn't get any signal at the new house, so we switched to AT&T-which made me happy because I could finally get an iPhone. I've had no problems with cell service or customer service, so even if Verizon coverage expanded to reach our house AND they offered the iPhone, I'd just stick with what I have. I found dealing with Verizon's customer service and sales much more aggravating, actually.

    The sellout of Cellular One to ATT was huge in my area. Cell1 had flooded the better part of the region with towers and consequently the service is great. The one issue (and it's a biggie) I have is the lack of 3g network for my area. Having over 125,000 people in a 40 mile stretch and no 3g is annoying.

    Great AT&T.

    Also, SEARCH the forums next time... there are literally over 10 threads on this same topic.

    AT&T now, but I'd probably prefer Verizon when they roll out their 4G network later this year.

    This thread is proof that the Verizon wanters make the most noise.

    AT&T seems to be the popular choice yet not a day goes by where there isn't somebody asking when the phone will go to Verizon.

    It doesn't really matter they are both about the same in my area, and I would suspect in most of the country. I voted AT&T because I am currently with them and the people in the local store are nicer then those in the Verizon store.

    AT&T. Good reception and speed (I'm not in Manhattan too often), cheaper than Verizon and it's GSM. Absolutely crucial as I travel a lot.

    Wow, I am really surprised by this poll with AT&T being in the lead. Seems that we mostly hear about the negatives about at&t and what awful service they offer. I understand that is a relative to where one lives. We all hear talk about iPhone eventually going to verizon and it always causes some kind of fury.

    Put me down as happy with AT&T as well. I switched from sprint to AT&T when the 1st iPhone came out. AT&T has been far better for me here in KC. I had been with sprint for over 10 yrs however the service was always so so. I could be next to there national HQ here in KC and drop a call. What kind of service is that.

    Anyways, just my thoughts.......

    AT&T because I don't live in San Francisco or NYC. Verizon Wireless does have edges on service, but they are still using CDMA technology as of today. Also, Verizon has terrible customer service in my experience. So, I go with AT&T for now.

    I had Verizon for years didn't care for them and their customer service lacks. My wife and kids are still on VZ until their phones run out then they will switch. I get a bigger discount with VZ then AT&T but VZ doesn't have roll over minutes and I can not be on a conference call and use data plan at the same time on VZ besides my service on AT&T has been nearly perfect or as good as VZ.

    I have had both carriers. Both are satisfying. I tend to get better service on trips with AT&T vs when I had verizon.

    Been with Cingular since 2001 and don't want to go back to CDMA.

    But to be honest, I would prefer no contracts for any of them. I like to try out different carriers. If I did sign a contract, I would want it one year only. I like to keep my free agent status.

    I love how simple it is to use Unlocked phones on AT&T's GSM network. I don't have to call Verizon to activate it. Great, especially when you like to use a few phones within a week.

    AT&T. 3G speeds are twice (or more) as fast and coverage is superior in my area. Plus, better customer support, in my opinion.
