Verizon vs AT&T in San Francisco!
To begin with I am sorry for the rant, but the other day a client told me to please not call him from my AT&T iPhone because of dropped calls; a friend of mine calls this getting “AT&T’d”. Not surprisingly it was the end of the end of my 3 year relationship with AT&T.
Yes, I had to buy a new iPhone 4 through Verizon for $200, but I was able to sell my AT&T iPhone 4 for $300 on Craigslist…easily. Because I had complained to AT&T a few times I was able to get my early termination reduced by 50% costing me about $100, so really the change over didn’t cost anything.
Also, I’ve got to say AT&T’s desire to purchase T-Mobile is galling considering the poor service AT&T already offers. It seems like AT&T made the business decision to stop putting money into their 3G service a year or two back perhaps in anticipation of their future 4G offering, which makes business sense I suppose, but clearly underlines the decision that their customers do not come first.
It’s been a week, and Verizon’s cell service is remarkably better. I’m no longer getting AT&T’d.
