Re: Verizon to announce iPhone on Tuesday?

Well it won't effect me I have no reason to switch. But it will be interesting to see how many at&t haters over

the years will switch to Verizon. IM guessing not as many as some are saying.

I'm happy with AT&T but hopefully having some competition will drive down the monthly fees we pay for date+texting+minutes.

Here is to improved network performance on ATT as folks jump to what may or may not be greener pastures....

 

Shall we start a pool on how long it is until we hear complaints that ATT is unreasonable for charging the ETF?

VZ's data + text + minutes is cheaper? Really? I hadn't heard that.

Please let it be true - no more posts about if verizon had the iphone I would jump ship in a minte abd the start of posts like what do you mean I owe [insert amount here] to get out of my contract, ATT is a rip off and what do you mean my current iphone will not work on the verizon network.

 

wonder how much apple or verizon is paying ATT to allow them to bypass the excluse contract agreement that ATT and Apple have - it will probably be never known

Competition is already there - just not for specific phones and it has not affected it. Add to teh fact that the keynote speech by verizon at CES is praising the profit margin and response on their 10.00 / 150 MB data plan they tried recently, ecpect this to follow at verzion in the future

Re: Verizon to announce iPhone on Tuesday?

I will definitely have to think long and hard about switching to Verizon once the iPhone 4 is shipping.  I currently use an iPhone 3GS and while I've thought about upgrading to the 4, things like other carriers getting the phones have dissuaded me from jumping to it.

 

In parts of my home, AT&T coverage was spotty and sometimes not working at all.  AT&T's solution for me?  They suggested that I purchase a $150 device called a MicroCell so I could have good service in my home.  Which, by the way, I did because I love my iPhone and wasn't willing to switch carriers if it meant losing it.

 

You throw another carrier into the mix that offers the iPhone with better CUSTOMER SERVICE and I think I may be gone.  You offer a sign on credit or equipment trade in offer and well that will seal the deal.  I love the unlimited data plan that I currently have on both the iPhone and iPad but that isn't even an offering any more.  AT&T has treated us iPhone users like captive customers for years.  You either accept our terms or you can't use the iPhone but now...?  We shall see.

Who cares and why?  i am sticking with AT&T i been with them since 1997 and never had any major problems.and the service has been great... I wish Verizon Goodluck with the Iphone and this will not make me change providers......if people want to leave AT&T and to to Verizon be  sure to pay your ETF fee and sell your AT&T iphone and log out of this forum and say "HELLO" to Verzion for me.

Re: Verizon to announce iPhone on Tuesday?

Actually, I won't be logging out of the community as I still have an ipad that has AT&T service.  My hope is that now that AT&T knows us iPhone users have another option they will adjust plan pricing accordingly AND just maybe they will consider that we have other options before giving us the take it or leave it attitude those of us with iPhones have dealt with for years.  When you have a monopoly you can be the big ogre but when people have a choice?  Things get better for everyone.

 

Keep in mind that not everyone still has an ETF fee.

Re: Verizon to announce iPhone on Tuesday?

Think about it, if Verizon does get the iphone you think they don't know that millions of people are going to flood their network? They are most likely going to have an unlimited plan at first but once it become too much stress on their network they are going to be forced to set up limited plans. Every carrier has dropped calls issues and not every carrier has full coverage in every area. Not to mention what was the iphone set up for? Simultaneous Data and voice, remember the commercials... "Oh whatsup bob oh you want to go to the movies? Let me pull up the times real quick.." yeah, that's GSM technology which is supported by at&t and tmobile. Verizon has CDMA technology, so if the iphone indeed go to Verizon you would not have the ability to use voice and data simultaneously, as CDMA only supports one or the other at one time. So with Verizon it would be... "Oh whatsup bob, oh you want to go to the movies? Let me call you back real quick so I can pull up the times.."

Rofl.
