http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601109&sid=a9zcrnZLIDkQ&refer=home I've had both AT&T and now Verizon. Some of my family members have had AT&T as well. I have had nothing but service problems with AT&T some of which are the following: 1) Voicemails that show up without the phone ever ringing. 2) No service in certain areas. 3) Lots of dropped calls. 4) Sounding like your really on a cell phone 5) Driving through Manhattan and suddenly "no service". The list goes on. Now I am reading that it takes 2 minutes to load up yahoo.com which is a popular mail application and homepage for some people. I would be more bullish on the I-Phone if it were combined with Verizon, howeve, AT&T makes me very bearish. Anyone who has had both AT&T and Verizon *knows* which one is the better service. Now for certain folks who dont use their phones extensively for business wont care about a few dropped calls. However, a person who does use their phone extensively for business where their phone is their lifeline will be embarassed by all the dropped calls and no service from AT&T. Part of the BlackBerry's success is Verizon. The reason why corporations arm their employees with BlackBerry's is Verizon which has the *most reliable network*. They can depend on Verizon. In fact, I have a buddy who flies everywhere in the United States and has never had any problems with Verizon. Even when he was up in Alaska in remote regions, he was still getting service. When I was traveling around the south, there were times when I was in the middle of nowhere and still getting service. Why would someone get an iphone if they have trouble getting a signal in Manhattan and it takes two minutes to load yahoo.com? My guess is that there will be some initial sales and then the popularity will fade.
