Verizon's iPhone users report fewer dropped calls than AT&T customers
82% of Verizon's iPhone 4 users are very satisfied with the device with 16% somewhat satisfied. Over at AT&T, the figures are 80% and 18% respectively.
ChangeWave also asked prospective Apple iPhone users which network they would sign up with. 46% chose Verizon, 27% picked AT&T and 27% were unsure or picked neither one.
While the statistics appear to show a clear-cut advantage for Verizon's network, ChangeWave says it is still early in the game. They wrote, "Verizon is still in the very early stages of its iPhone 4 offering to consumers. It remains to be seen how well the Verizon network performs as the number of Verizon iPhone 4 owners ramps up and inevitably puts more pressure on their system."
But until that happens, AT&T's iPhone customers have a higher chance of having a call drop in the middle of a conversation than Verizon customers do.

According to ChangeWave, AT&T's Apple iPhone 4 customers are more likely to have a dropped call than those using the iPhone 4 on Verizon's network

No one cares about Verizon OR the Verizon iPhone.

Shenanigans. Just because YOU don't care about something says nothing about other people's opinions.

how's that 2GB cap working out for ya?

I've had the 2GB cap for a while and unless you stream movies 24 hours a day, it is sort of difficult to use the entire 2GB. But I suppose some people feel entitled to hogging the network by watching video constantly...

I don't have internet in my home (Not my choice, I live in the sticks) and yet, I run a web based business with my phone. On the 2GB plan. So I still don't understand how people plow through that much data.

If you have wifi access at home its tough to even get close to 1GB of usage. Some people are just too attached to their phones and don't pay attention. I use wiring whenever possible cause its much faster anyway. For the last few weeks I haven't had internet access at home or work and that 2GB is easy to get to. So if you don't have other internet access the 2GB is a pain.

Companies are capping DSL use soon...so wifi off your router counts as data with your provider...AT&T will cap in May and COMCAST already caps, to a point...
22. SavageLucy42 (Posts: 196; Member since: 24 Mar 2011)
The talk about capping DSL means to cap you after 150GB. If you use more than 150GB of data in a month, you deserve to be capped because durp it does slow down the network for everyone else.

Offering a lower data plan helps those families with 5 smartphones on one plan....

if they cant afford it those families shouldnt HAVE 5 smart phones. god knows little timmy needs to stay up to date on that the hot lunch is in his 4th grade class.
23. SavageLucy42 (Posts: 196; Member since: 24 Mar 2011)
Oh my gosh YES. Because they lower the plan to the 200MB plan and THAT you go over very easily. Any matriach/patriarch of a family with 5 iPhones on a shared Family Talk plan needs a good punch in the throat if they're going to constantly ask to lower their bill.

I don't think it's really the provider, it's more the phones. I've had Verizon forever, and over the course of 4-6 years maybed dropped 2 calls, and that's cause I was in the mountains and expected that. The first day I get my smartphone I dropped a call lol, probably just coincidence because I haven't dropped one since. People need to stop being stupid, figure out who works best where they live and get that company. For Albuquerque, Verizon is the best for everything. ATT drops calls as does Sprint and T-Mo, therefore people running these other services are stupid in my area, if they complain
