PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A lot of people point to a possible Verizon iPhone as the one thing that will staunch Android's remarkable growth. Sadly for those of you stuck on AT&T, there won't be a Verizon iPhone any time soon. Verizon Wireless spokesman John Johnson has said that his company has "no plans to carry the iPhone in the immediate future". Bummer for all you frustrated AT&T people.

I left AT&T and gladly paid the early termination fee for my family plan. That's how bad it was. Sprint is very supportive of Android, they have excellent plans, good prices, and so far, wonderful customer service. They also offer discounts to just about anyone. Mine is twice my employee discount with ATT.

Oh, and the EVO comes out tomorrow.

Maybe it's regional? What was bad about AT&T? And what region are you in?

A better question would be what was "right" with my service. I averaged 3 dropped calls a day. I went through 4 different phones (3 models) over the time I was with them. The billing issues were constant. Every month required a call to confirm that yes, I was an employee and yes I am eligible for a discount.

ATT nickel and dime their customers to death. I have only been with Sprint for 4 months, but I have only had to call once. And that was a mix up with Best Buy (where I bought the phones) and the correct discount. 1 call and Sprint was actually happy to help. I have had 1 dropped call. And that was in the middle of the woods of BFE. I live in Ohio (US for the rest of the world.)

Having been with Sprint for a few months shy of 10 years, I'm quite pleased with their service and since 2006, their general availability of 3G data access. The only place I really found lack is right here and they've resolved that since I moved here.

There is a problem with trying to buy the EVO, though. Apparently, they're not selling (or activating) them for many area codes that don't support 4G data yet and that would be the majority. Anyone should be aware before trying to buy one.
