Verizon's new ad has teeth, sinks them into AT&T
The last time we checked in on the feud that is Verizon vs. AT&T, the former had backed off from attacking the latter by producing a funny knock-off of a Big Red chewing gum commercial (has anyone seen that spot aired?). But as Gordon Gecko so eloquently put it in Wall Street, "Christmas is over and business is business". Verizon's newest spot is aimed at the Teen/Young Adult market. And nothing is hotter in that space than movies and books about vampires, werewolves, (Motorola's Android 2.1 upgrade for the DROID) and other mythical creatures. How will AT&T retaliate? The Batsignal probably has gone out for Luke Wilson.

I actually thought this was the worst one. He didn't bite her because of her cellphone signal? Okay..... My favorite one is the shadows one.

Yes they do. I kinda wonder something... I bet when AT&T broadcast their cheap commercials Verizon simply says, ok which one of these dozens of commercials do we use on this one. AT&T, give up. Every time you release a commercial, Verizon has 3 or more cool ones to shoot back! Verizon FTW

don't use the word retarded. it's immature and rude...they say that because verizon customers are subject to 3g a lot more than at&t customers. therefore faster downloads.

It's funny to me how people state their opinons but have probably never used both carriers. I have Verizon as my company phone, which is an HTC Touch Pro2 and AT&T as my personal with an iPhone 3GS. Atleast once a week while I am out driving around I lose coverage with Verizon but my phone will still have 2 or 3 bars. The coverage and downloads are so slow on Verizon that I have my work email pushed to my personal cell that way I always have what I need. There have also been a number of times where I needed to look something up and am on the phone and I can't because Verizon does not support this. Just from my experience with my work phone turned me off of Verizon, AT&T will always have my business.

Yeah, we get it already. Verizon has better 3G coverage. Now, release some new f***ing phones so we can take advantage of it. One flagship smartphone surrounded by a pack of washed up has-beens isn't cutting it anymore.

Wow, walking around with your eyes screwed shut? Droid and Droid Eris, Imagio, Ozone, Touch Pro 2, Pre Plus and Pixi Plus, Treo Pro 850w, Storm2, Curve 8350, Pearl flip, Tour, Omnias 1 and 2, Saga. Also, Devour coming out shortly.

I agree with killingthemonk, where have you been. The Droid in itself is the best thing out there. Verizon has a great selection of phones. No company will release a new phone every week.
