They're doing everything they can to put a bandage on the whole iPhone fiasco. Giving customers "candy" to keep them from having a Sprint moment where thousands terminate service. iPhone 4 = the real iPhone killer!

hell yea i agree wit yall sayin at&t has shitty coverage lol i live in miami right in da city and also i only get 1 bar of service when i am outside n keep getting a lot of call failed n call ended even when i have service, the only place that i used at&t and it worket perfect just like verizon works here in the states was in san juan puerto rico , i was amazed how good at&t works over there in puerto rico i had 5 bars of solid 3G service everywere i went even inside buldings like the mall , i did not drop one call which was shocking !! then i cam back to miami and again i keep dropping calls like crazy and keep getting the same shitty service lol XD lucky puerto ricans at&t works good over there...

AT&T does have poor coverage, but this is a good step in the right direction.

nope, go build some towers. this is a stopgap, yes I do agree if you live in a area that does not get great service they should perty much give you one of these

It's a temporary solution, towers require a lot of time. Buy or lease the land, obtain planning approval from local city/county, hire contractors, obtain permits, build time, finalize, etc... Not to mention having the necessary backbone to go to the tower.

I agree with the building towers remedy. That's the oldest trick in the book, poor service mean build more towers and upgrade what you already have. One good thing about AT&T, when other networks have corporate meetings they can have a PowerPoint slide that says: Our new strategy for our network is by example - AT&T ...to do everything possible to keep from being like them.

AT&T should be giving more of these away...Sprint gives airwave (sprint femto/microcell) for free for customers that have coverage issues in their home...

but dont they charge $5 a month for that service?

No, they should actually build out their network. AT&T is getting what they deserve for being lazy!
