What got me away from Verizon, the $60 a month plan and the $300 a month bill. It'd be one thing if I talked, more than 200 minutes a month, or texted less than 500, or used their data thingy 0kb a month. But, the killer for me, was when I began questioning them over the phone one day and their 'customer service' rep got so belligerent with me I refused to pay my bill. The next month I got a bill for over $1200. Needless to say it will never get paid and the phone went screen first into a nice thick brick wall.

I'd guess around 2million 3G's sold in the US, so we're looking at around 313,000 customers Verizon lost. They'll still turn a net gain for the Quarter, but AT&T is going to have the biggest one in the industry.

Yeah, if the FCC, DOJ, and SEC approve it. Bad news for you, but Verizon's deal will eliminate competition in some markets, Verizon's already said they'll cut some Alltel employees, and Goldman Sachs could get bought out becasue they're doing poorly. If GS gets bought out it's up to the new parent company on what they want to do with their stake in Alltel. Don't assume this deal will fly through regulation without any bumps. Heck, for Verizon to buy Rural Cellular (Unicel) they got a lot of scrutiny.

i still dont understand why anyone would switch carriers over a ****ing phone. att's network has improved plenty cellular wise but there 3G is a joke. isn't that the whole reason you'd buy a :::::::3G::::::: iPhone?

They may not have the largest 3G coverage area, but it's FAST. Comparing my Blackjack and Aircard to my girlfriend's Verizon Curve before she got the 3G showed a big difference. I don't know if Blackberry just has a slow browser, but EV-DO was between EDGE and HSPA in terms of speed.

as "cool" as the storm may be, T-Mobile will have the hit of the year with the G1. ya it may be ugly but its got nice specs (great touch screen, nice keyboard, decent camera, etc..) but the most important factor is it runs on Android. the G1 DEFINITELY will steal the Storm's Thunder (lol). oh and at&t has slow 3G speeds. everyone knows that tmobile's 3G is faster the everyone's (in the areas they have it) next verizon, alltel, sprint THEN at&t.
