This is my favorite.

I still cannot believe how so many people (read Verizon users) accept the fact that they cannot make phone calls while surfing the web or checking email. This to me would be a good reason to switch away from Verizon and get an iPhone TODAY on AT&T. Verizon customers, wake up! Nobody other than Verizon has such as flawed network built on absurdly non-standard technology called CDMA while the rest of the world, including many third world countries enjoy GSM and UMTS. Make no mistake, I am not rooting for AT&T because it also has issues but at least it is built on an advanced and standard technology. Also, like it or not, AT&T has already learned the hard way how to deal with the high-load data traffic generated by iPhone users. Verizon will have to start fro scratch. Good luck with that, Verizon users.

    Are you serious? I couldn’t care less about being able to talk on the phone and browse online. I have never, ever, ever been in the situation where I need the capability. I think it is a stupid marketing ploy by AT&T who couldn’t think of any other advantage they have over Verizon, so they picked the only one they could, which happened to be one of the most useless features of GSM and UMTS.

    And further more, AT&T has not “already learned the hard way how to deal with the high-load data traffic generated by iPhone users.” Their network still sucks, and I’m not sure it will ever get better.

    No? What about this, then?

    “AT&T 3G network speed improves 84% in performance test”
    A new test of the four major U.S. 3G networks found that AT&T has undergone a “drastic makeover” in the last eight months, with download speeds that blow away competitors Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint.
