I'm so tired of AT&T. It's the only thing bringing down the iPhone in my book.

Am I missing something?

I know several people with iPhones and they never have problems with them. Well, other than the iPhone getting very hot...

It's not so much about the iPhone, it's about AT&T's crappy coverage and dropped calls. Try coming to western PA for a couple weeks. You'll see what I mean. Sad

Yeah AT&T is great here in NJ but when my wife and I go on roadtrips we get some really bad coverage with it.

AT&T is the one reason I don't have an iPhone.

The iPhone is still only on the one network in the US?

Here in the UK, the O2 network's monopoly on the iPhone has recently come to an end...

Don't rub it in JB. Having that on top of universal healthcare is hard for us to handle or comprehend. Wink

Anyone else notice that's an iPod touch in the article image?

Also, I have no problems with AT&T except lack of 3G coverage, otherwise I have voice coverage anywhere I need, except the woods during deer season, but Verizon is no better.

I think Verizon is getting the best of AT&T in all of these commercials. The Verizon ones have been light and funny. They also have the infamous map on their side. The AT&T commercials with Luke Wilson seem more defensive to me.

One word... cash. AT&T is giving Apple more money per phone with an exclusive carrier contract.
