doesn't seem to hard for verizon being that they took over qwest wireless with their own and also buying altel. i guess you can buy the number 1 spot.

Those happened in Q1, not in Q2. Unless your referring to the same thing ATT did when it Cingular and ATT merged April 26, 2005. I guess it was OK for them to buy there way to the #1 carrier at the time. I guess it was ok when they bought 1.7 million subscribers from Dobson cellular on November 15th, 2007. But it's not ok for Verizon to buy less than 14 Million total? I guess ATT's (formerly cingulars" 46million subscriber deal) is far inferior and is unfair.

you gotta give Verizon props... they're a f*ckin machine. despite wether you like vz or not, they are an awesome business model and a solid company. no i don't work for them.

Quite frankly, I figure the less kids taking up space on my carrier's network, the better experience I'll have, so I think ATT should drop about 10 million or so subscribers, I'll totally be cool with that. Oh, and how about those 10 million subscribers be strictly iPhone kids.....smiles all around =].....

Fortunately, the majority of VZW's users are not kids (because we fortunately don't have the iPhone, hopefully we never will), and that could account for a portion of the added reliability of the network. However, that could also be weighed down by all business users as well.

the iphone doesnt slow down atts network...its the network itself that is just not very well built. hence the slowest of the four largest us carriers. and att thinks says it is the fastest. a bit hypocritical isnt it????
