    I would prefer Verizon because of their coverage but I don't like the fact they aren't GSM.

    It doesn't really matter. If I could get a consistent 4-5 bars from any of those large carriers at my house, I would join them immediately. Outside of my house AT&T has been the best, from my experience...:(:(:(

    Well there's hardly any o2 reception at my house; any of the others would be better.

    +1. AT&T is great for me. Wouldn't mind it being on other carriers, just to not have to hear all the whining any more about Verizon, especially.

    Before I had AT&T I had Verizon and wished Verizon would get the iPhone. Well, when the 3GS was announced, I decided to jump ship from Verizon and give AT&T a shot. I was afraid my reception would suffer since Verizon supposedly has better coverage in Massachusetts. Well, I have to say now that I am on AT&T I actually get better coverage in two spots where I would lose my calls on Verizon. I no longer find myself saying "lemme call ya back I'm about to lose coverage".

    So I am fine with AT&T, as long as they give us MMS soon.

    ATT is fine.




    The majority of the people I know with that carrier don't like it.

    "So why do you stay with it?" because: "It's cheap and no contract, I'll deal with the dropped calls!"

    Sprint. They have good coverage and fast speeds out here, and it'd cost $20/month less to get unlimited data + texting.

    I'd like it to stay on AT&T, mainly because my signifigant other is an RSM for them, and if they lose the iphone, I'm sure he'll lose a lot of commission haha.

    But in all honesty, I've had their service for 2 years, and aside from a few blips here and there, it's great. I didn't have signal in my old apartment, but I was in a basement unit, so it's understandable. Their customer service has always been above par, especially in comparison to Sprint (which I had before)

    Heh, sometimes you gotta put up with the BS to save money. Im glad I can afford my AT&T contract. I'm happy with them, I just wish for a little bit better signal in my area, but all around, I'm happy.

    However, I'd prefer Verizon because I had better service before I switched to AT&T.

    Seconded. They offer the best price and their network is great. Plus, their will be less network traffic. ;)

    While I agree that 02 is perfect for me my actual answer to the question would be all.

    That way my friends could get them or if I wanted to switch carriers for whatever reason I could still get an iPhone.

    AT&T... have had Cingular/AT&T for 8 years now and other than a few minor service issues here and there, my experience has been stellar!

    I'd prefer T-mobile in the UK. Or like someone has already said - all operators then you could get the best deal and coverage.

    Verizon. AT&T's 3G network is an utter turd.

    I still like the phone, but I can't help but think that Verizon would be better suited for such a data-centric device.

    What do you mean you'd "prefer" if the iPhone was offered on Rogers?
