    I was just wondering what wireless carrier the majority of the switchers were switching from.

    T-Mo [UK]. Been with them for 4 years - I actually apologised to the woman from retentions as I have always had great CS from them - but they don't have the iPhone in the UK so we had to go our separate ways :(

    I'm switching from Sprint. Wow, you missed quite a few carriers in your poll there, maybe you should have researched the options a little more.

    I know this is against the Apple religion but I am not buying the iPhone (at least not until it is offered from Verizon) I like Verizon, have had AT&T and they stink. And besides, Verizon owns my life.

    Peace:cool:

    Check your posts.

    Hmm.. Might want to consider checking your post for errors before submitting it.. US Cellular is in there, like, twice? ^__^
    And I do not care about typos to much, but they're within the names of the poll itself? (The '0' instead of a ')' for AT&T)
    Ohh, and maybe a 'catchall variable/ carrier' would be nice, like, say, 'other'. Just in case you missed a few carriers.

    Well, that's just me giving some constructive feedback, no bashing intended.

    EDIT: Ohh, and I'm Dutch, but I'm seriously considering the iPhone. The prices seem pretty decent over here, starting at €30/ Month :)

    Whoops, sorry all. The last US cellular was supposed to be Sprint / Nextell. If there was a way to change it I would.

    Sprint here. I've been with Nextel/Sprint for over 7 years, but after all that time, they have not improved their coverage in my area in spite of my complaints. At first I thought it was because I'm by the shore/bay, but when I look at my girlfriend's AT&T phone with 3G and full bars whilst I look at my constantly-roaming Sprint phone with 1-2 bars (yeah, Verizon sucks in my area too), the choice is a no-brainer.

    I was a Cingular customer back in the day (when they were still Cellular One) and the only reason I switched was to have "walkie-talkie". Boy did Nextel sucker my ass with that little gimmick.

    AT&T, I'm coming home!

    Verizon.

    I've been very happy with their service but no Iphone means it's time to go back to AT&T :(

    Also, Alltel is spelled with one "L", not two.

    (Think of the prefix "tele")

    att has been good for me

    great coverage and as long as i pay my bills, avoid going into an att store to talk to a sales rep and avoid unnecessary conversation over the phone with a rep then i am happy. the only thing that would sour this relationship iff att started peddling me **** i dont need.

    If any of you are switching to ATT with the new iphone and want a $25 referral credit once you sign up with ATT, send me a PM. I have a few referrals left to use and I'll send the ATT referral email to ya!

    Thanks!

    not really switching, I'm keeping my Verizon RAZR V3M active as well as getting an iPhone 3G. Where I don't have to pay for the verizon phone, I'll be using it for voice, as it has more minutes, and more reliable coverage around here, and the iPhone for data and a backup voice for when the razr battery craps out on me.

    ATT seems to have better service where I am located than Verizon.

    Sticking with AT&T. Those that are switching, how do you feel about moving to AT&T from your current provider?

    Switching from T-mobile. just cancelled my contract mid term. They raised text messaging rates and that was my outlet without paying the early termination fee. My last day of service is july 8th.
