|Comments on news posted 2009-12-01 18:34:40: Straight off of AT&T and Verizon's multi-week network quality snark fest, Consumer Reports has issued their latest survey of wireless carriers and phones, and it probably won't make AT&T particularly happy. .. |
Same devils, different names. "In terms of the industry as a whole, the Consumer Reports study found that overall, customers are increasingly satisfied with wireless service. That's not as exciting as it sounds -- wireless carriers have traditionally ranked among the worst across any industry"
The ALL suck. They all need to admit that, bust out the 4G and stop nickel and diming us for technology that is just getting cheaper for them (their PMs are insanely high). I'm an AT&T customer. I'm waiting for the mass defections once the eclusive rights to the iPhone are gone. Then I can call up, threaten to quit and have them hand me their first born.

AT&T I recently dropped AT&T in favor of T mobile
AT&T was charging for service that they failed to deliver.
I was a long term (over ten years) customer if you include the earlier names on the same door--Southern Bell, Cingular, then AT&T)
AT&T tried to kill portions of my services multiple times, even though I was paying for them, or they were grandfathered services.
This included such things as tethering, automatic switching to analog when digital service was not available, and automatic switching to "roaming" when AT&T network services were not available or were down.
Then, they wanted me to start a new contract, in order to replace the phones that they were required to provide service for under the grandfather clauses. (Which they claimed was necessary to provide the services that I had been paying for, and were not provided.)
I ended up buying "Google" phones outright, and using them on AT&T until I was able to get SIM cards for them from T Mobile.
The phones are totally unlocked, and I have full control of what operating system version is used, as well as what applications are loaded into them. No Contract with T-Mobile.
