    Before they fix San Francisco or New York. Having missed their commitment of 2009, perhaps they will make 2010.

    In fairness to the "steaming pile of failure," 3G is available in Vermont. I saw it on New Years Day for about 2 miles on I91 at White River Junction. (Perhaps only leaking over the border from New Hampshire.)

    Part of what one needs to understand about AT&T is that it is still not one homogeneous company. Cingular, who had no 3G, purchased AT&T Wireless, which had 3G in some markets, and took the iconic AT&T name. While the senior management is Cingular, the regional management is still fragmented. Even Los Angeles, where I could only find EDGE at the international airport, and San Francisco, where I could find 3G but it did not work, do not have the same management and cannot inter-operate billing systems. No Family Plan for those whose families span the border and want local numbers.

    As users, this means that some of us get much better service than others. For example, 3G in New Hampshire but not in Vermont. Micro-cell in the Carolinas, but not in major markets.

    Does the iPhone trump local coverage? Are people who live in poor AT&T service areas choosing it anyway to get the iPhone? Is that why we hear so much complaint from iPhone users?

    Not sure how you answered the user's question, but I guess you felt like ranting about your love for AT&T.

    I am a state employee. I get 15% off on some things, and I was told I get 50% off accessories. But when I got my phone I got 1 accessory free with the purchase of 2 others. The free accessory was a $15 set of screen protectors.

    Am I supposed to get 50% off or is that null when I get a package like I did. Because frankly, I got jipped considering I paid $50 for an Otterbox, and $30 for another case. I got a $15 item free, when I should have gotten almost $50 bucks off.

    You may the same amount, but it'll be split on your bill.

    Example. If you cycle started on the 1st and you switched
    on the 16th, you would have a $15 charge half of the
    month with the BB plan and $15 for the other half for the
    iPhone plan.

    I know this is late, but hope this helps still as well as others
    who may have the same concern.

    I bought a 3GS in January. If I add an iPhone 4 to my plan for family member and give them the 3GS am I grandfathered in under old data usage plan? It's connected to number not phone correct?

    ok so here goes.

    Is there anyway that at&t can locate my phone through gps such as google maps or wifi connection(when logged into my facebook.)
    When the person inserts a new sim does at&t automataclly flag it as stolen and disables it or what?

    Sunday night my phone got stolen.
    i reported with police and at&t
    police said talk with at&t and vice versa.
    The captain said that they couldn't send out a distress signal on the phone without bolo papers(endangered child) witch is totally understandable but i just want my phone. honestly. back to the old blackberry for now....


    btw. i dont have mobile me or ihound or anything like that. the closest thing would be google maps or twitter location.

    Unfortunely without any of those programs, there's nothing AT&T can do to locate ur phone.
