I would highly recommend NOT getting AT&T. I went with them for the iPhone. I drop calls constatnly and I live in Denver. The internet is extremly slow as well. As soon as my plan is up in August I'm switching to Verizon.

I hear so much bad things about at&t but I use at&t and it works fine for me. It could my area or something. There is not much tall buildings anywhere.

it differs among areas. t-mobile was fine until i went to the mountains. then it sucked ass. sprint has fewer dead zones for me.

ATT works "fine" for me to, but compared to my wife's Verizon, it's garbage.

Legal isn't really the issue, it's consumer friendly that Apple sucks at. They have tried to sue and gotten sued more times than needed. If they just weren't so greedy.. They are suing Samsung over the same scenario back when they tried to sue Microsoft because their product looked "similar" and it was "unfair." Apple needs to grow a pair.

when i first joined sprint they had aweful customer service and worse reception but their new CEO has really turned things around. they have the best repair policy of any cell company and the best prices on plans. their unlimited plan includes 4g and i cant wait to upgrade and get a new phone that can do it. but seriously their repair policy is the best thing ever 35 bucks and they replace or fix whatever is broken its great.

Verizon is the best, but the only issue is they're on CDMA instead of SIM so you can't just easily swap phones whenever you feel like it.
Sessions sucks hairy monkey balls, the end.

thats recent though. versizon's customer service used to be top notch 5 or so years ago. recently, i think the fact that most people think verizon's coverage is the best has led them to not care as much about customer service.

Sintexo - Here's another back-from-the-dead thread for you, although the corpse hasn't started rotting yet.  The last post prior to thesupaflies post (which we can refer to as PtP, Pre-thesupaflies-Post) is dated May 1 so only 79 days have passed since the PtP.

HAHA.  thesupaflies isn't going to last.  he doesn't really have much to offer the community, and he'll get the tshirt then realize he is bored because he's not discussing anything worth talking about, and leave...
