My phones are on the way (My transition from Verizon to ATT)

I got a shipping conformation from ATT.  My phones are on they way, but they sent them USPS??????  Just goes to show you how cheap ATT is?  That just seems absurd to me that they did not use a proper carrier to ship phones.

 

Now, lets hope I can port my number back to Verizon and be done with this whole fiasco brought upon me by my wonderful govermerment.

Not sure, but I wasn't going to take the chance. That's why I left the sim card even before I plugged it in to charge the first time.
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

Actually, I think its my work firewall blocking the port that the market needs, I can't usually download stuff from my Droid over wireless at work also... I bet it works from home.  I'll try it tonight.

Yeah, thats what it was... I downloaded a few things last night from home.

 

I wonder what happens if you try to download something that isn't free?

The couple of paid applications I have were paid through google checkout. I did pay them on my current phone. They showed up as purchased on the Aria. So downloaded the one I had to have to function. Points at signature line.

Let me guess.  You quit Verizon because they were so cheap they made you pay for UPS.  Bye.

@Javeon
This is for a forced transition to AT&T brought on by the FCC's requirements in the Verizon/Alltel merger. Belome doesn't want to leave Verizon.

Oh so it was more of a blog type post since the change wasn't because of at&t.

Well RicoLX, you're going to have to wait a little longer. Both belome and myself are still waiting to find out when our transition date is going to happen.

Well I certainly hope the network is so welcoming. Not that I trust the network coverage map in the first place, but certainly doesn't look promising for my Cellular Market Area (CMA). The 3g has managed to appear on the map for one small area of one of the counties where it wasn't before. The voice map hasn't improved. There are all sorts of roaming/partner coverage hatch marks. I travel regularly through the most of the CMA and elsewhere. For the CMA alone and the Verizon coverage now, I have decent voice throughout, but will at least have a weak usable 3g signal and only drop to a 2g data on occasion.

Yep thats something to consider especially since this is a 'forced' merger and not a chosen move on your part.  Ask around and see if others in your CMA that has AT&T have any  major complaints.  One thing to consider, if you are being moved due to the cellular company's business venture , to a different carrier,, you could be released of your termination fees if the new services doesnt provide adequate service.   See which carrier has good service other than Verizon since you are having to move from that plan.

 

 

Hope AT&T works out for you. I know there's a major upgrade going on and ive lived through two 'growing pain' stages but have to say, my services are getting better after each build out or expansion.

Hey, try comparing services using this link provided by the great NSAYER in another string.   After clicking on the map at the bottom of the website , enter your city or zip, then you can click on honeycone shaped areas to see which carrier has the strongest signal for calls and data in your area... COOL!    Send NSAYER a Kudo if this help you.

 from this screenshot, you see Sprint and Verizon has the BEST services but ATT is not that bad.

 But notice since i've "highlighted" att at the bottom of the map, it shows all the  GREAT spots in Green for ATT
