    I found this very offensive.
    I, for one, have never had any problems with AT&T as a carrier.

    Why do they insist AT&T sucks so badly?

    PS: The T-Mobile girl is actually pretty attractive ;)

    Offensive? Get over yourself. It's marketing and you need not take it so personally. Be happy with your choice to go to AT&T and just chill.

    Because my experience with AT&T was extremely horrible.

    Had nothing but great experience all around with T-Mobile (reception, reliability, customer service).

    I'm finding out that the whole "which cell phone company is better" is more a personal thing...

    I found it to be a great commercial - very funny.

    I had an HTC phone before my iPhone and it was great on T-Mobile. People I know who have the MyTouch's on T-Mobile absolutely love theirs and wouldn't think about getting an iPhone - unless it "officially" comes to T-Mobile USA... ;)

    I find it kinda funny. Consider yourself very fortunate for never have had any problems with AT&T. I know some people get surprised if they can hold a conversation for longer than 15 minutes without dropping a call.

    The only thing I found offensive about it is that T-mobile so lacks imagination that they have to resort to plagiarism of Apple commercials. If my ad agency was so poor I'd get another.

    How can you get offended (sorry, very offended) over an ad where on company talks smack about another one? Do you get mad about fast food commercials?

    There's a more personal level when the service has been good for you and when you're locked into that company for a long period of time. It's kind of like when people buy a leased car.

    Lol

    Lol, yeah I don't know why they are bagging someone else. I mean there in last place along with Sprint.. The main thing that they have better is prices, and 4G... But they still don't have a reason to talk about anyone else, they are in really bad shape. Earlier last year, the company almost had to merge with Sprint's Pre-paid company, Virgin Mobile. That's Bad.

    It's a good thing they aren't trying to bag the iPhone.. But it looks like they are... but they really aren't. If you have noticed, they have always talked about the iPhones limited capabilities because of AT&T.

    If they were to say anything about the iPhone they would be laughed out of the market, because all they have are the iPhone wana-be, knock offs. Lol

    Wow, if you're offended by a commercial, you better get rid of your TV and lock yourself away in your house.

    While I think those t-mobile commercials are rather lame, they do spot light some of the short comings with the iPhone and AT&T. Oh and the iPhone isn't perfect, and it does have short comings

    ^ This.

    As much as we may like the iPhone, it is not perfect... I, for one, wouldn't mind Flash, but I realize I'm in the minority when it comes to that.

    And yes, the girl is a hottie.

    offended is a pretty strong word but it's what advertising has become for carriers. Cheap politics. It's funny their main selling point...their 4G is HSPA+ ... the same thing AT&T calls 3G...

    AT&T considers it to be "4G Speeds" because everyone else is calling it 4G. All an advertising scheme

    As does T-Mobile. Technically none of the "4G" offerings qualify for the documented 4G standard and while AT&T is now calling its HSPA+ network 4G, they initially complained about T-Mobile qualifying their HSPA+ network as 4G.

    I guess when they realized the sorry state their LTE network is in, they figured to cut their losses and call HSPA+ 4G

    no, Tmobile blantantly calls their HSPA+ 4G calling it faster than AT&T's...though it's the same type of network and AT&T's actually runs faster. And what sorry state are you referring to? the fact that Tmobile has NO plans to move to LTE at all?
