    It is better to have Verizon on our iPhones ( well, YOUR iPhone ) and iPads rather than AT&T?

    Why? Why is everyone excited about iPhones coming out with Verizon?

    Around here Verizon has MUCH better coverage than ATT which makes them more appealing. I wish there was a better option because I have never had more problems and worse customer service with any company than Verizon, but I am basically stuck with them. Life is good for cell phone companies no matter the name I guess.

    Verizon is much better in areas around us also. We've had Verizon for a number of years and its been dependable with little issue. Last Spring when I bought the Ipad Verizon offered the Palm Pre Plus with free mobile hot spot so I bought the wifi 64 GB and later we added a 32 GB wifi. Due to the success we have when we use the mobile hot spot (in honesty, not as often as one would think since free wifi is offered so many places in our area--more likely to be used when we travel or in car) i'll strongly consider a 3/4G Ipad with Verizon when we replace ours--not the Ipad 2 though.

    AT&T is better coverage here, but personally I won't go with either one. They are both too expensive. But if I had to go with one it would be Verizon.

    I had att years ago and it was the worst experience ever! Horrible customer service dropped calls all the time breaking up audio bad reception...it was a nightmare! It was actually my first cell carrier so I didn't know any better, I just thought cell phones sucked! Got in verizon about 6 years ago and it's great! Call quality is clear, I can count on one hand how many calls ive dropped, customer service is exceptional...and my new iphone works great!!!

    Def do yourself a favor and get off att!

    Yeah ~ I had that same experience ~ that was why I was afraid to get them for the data plan on my iPad.

    But I have to say they have been really nice and helpful!

    Just glad to have a choice. My entire family is on Verizon and I am on ATT with my iPhone.

    When my contract is up in June I'll be heading back to Verizon.

    My boss told me tonight, Verizon has the best coverage in the area I'm going to along the border in TX.

    Plus, Verizon didn't want a deposit, and AT&T wanted $500. Weird.

    Well that's good. Is there still a two year contract though?


    I heard yesterday that with the iPhone, there are two popular features that won't work, if you go to Verizon. I forget what they were....

    Wonder if that's true?
