    I was on Verizon for two years before switching over to AT&T.

    I'll be honest, the service in my area is better with AT&T. Glad I made the move.

    Switching was the best thing we have done...

    We switched from Verizon to AT&T two years ago with the iPhone 3G. I have great service all over Phoenix. My wife has a couple dropped call in our small little town, but other than that they have been great! Our 3G's will make excellent iPod Touches for the kids after next week. Can't wait!

    I switched from nextel when the first iPhone came out. I switched for the phone but have been extreamly pleased with AT&T service. Their 3G coverage should cover more area!

    Agreed. I switched from Sprint to Cingular (now AT&T) and couldn't be happier with the cell service. There have been very few places that I have dropped calls. I do wish that AT&T would cover more with 3G. It's fine where I live, but my in-Laws house doesn't have 3G.

    Yeah, they're keeping verizon. They aren't tech savvy like me. To them a phone is a phone lol. I've been wanting the iphone. They are happy with Verizon but I want the iphone. No more waiting for me. haha

    for you guys switching from verizon, what are you doing about the fact that the $30 unlimited plan will no longer be offered after June 7th (assuming you want the unlimited plan)? I'm a current Verizon user who is planning on getting a 3GS on June 6th so that I can get the $30 unlimited data plan. Then when the new iPhone is released, I'll return the 3GS (unopened) and get the 4th gen iPhone.

    I love the theme and overall attitude of this thread so I'll chime in.

    AT&T catches way too much flak around here. Service is rock solid in my area and everyone I've convinced to leave Verizon has been very happy with their move.

    Before switching to Sprint for the Pre, I was on AT&T. There were no problems from what I experienced, albeit I didn't have an iPhone.

    I've seen what the EVO has to offer and will now wait for what's shown Monday. Depending on that, I may be switching back or staying with my Pre until further notice.

    Good to see that I am not the only one who's been agonizing over switching strictly for iPhone/ the unlimited data plan. If there's ever been a good reason to bite the bullet, avoiding paying $25 for every 2GB of data is it in my opinion. Luckily I am out of contract with Verizon (hence why they've been calling me trying to give me "a great deal on a new phone" or even a month of free service if I re-sign) so I'm considering jumping on my mother's AT&T family plan (already 2 step brothers with iPhones on that plan) and paying her the difference in price every month. One question for anyone with a family plan- if you get the 3000 min voice with the $30 unlimited data (before July 7, obviously) and $30 family text plan, it only costs $9 to add another iPhone line, not more individual monthly charges for data and text, correct? In other words, it's going to add $9 a month more plus cost of activation and phone, not an extra $69 ($30 data, $30 text, $9 extra line) added to each bill? Assuming of course we (Mom, Step-Dad, sister, 2 step bros + me) can survive on 3000 min of talk a month. Shouldn't be a problem for me considering I avg. about 250 min a month but one Step Bro and my sister are both teenagers so... We'll see. Any problem with my logic here?
    Either way I come out paying less than currently at Verizon but can have an iPhone with a grandfathered unlimited data plan- and hopefully will be trading it in for a 4G/ HD next week. On that topic too, does it have to be unopened and unused if I wanted to make that happen or do I have 30 days of actual use to trade it for the new model, as I would with Verizon? Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

    Data is charged per phone. So if you were to join their family plan with an iPhone it would be $9.99 for the extra line, then $15-30 for data depending on what data plan you get for your phone.

    Thanks for the reply. I can't seem to find this information anywhere online. They fail to mention it anywhere on the iPhone/ service plan ordering pages. I even read through the lengthy AT&T Family Plan Terms page and couldn't find it. They sure aren't advertising the true cost of service very well (at least for family plans)- which isn't very surprising but it sure is frustrating when trying to weigh my options. Anyone know where I can find this info online so I can refer to it for planning with my family? Thanks!

    If you go here it shows all of the family plans. Then shop their cell phones. All of the smart phones will a statement at the bottom saying that a data plan is required.
