    AT&T: The most hated company in iPhone land

    Advertisement



    This is a pretty interesting article, at the same time though it almost make it look like Apple (IPhone) is the problem and not AT&T, having been with AT&T/Cingular/AT&T I had up until recently (a few months) never experienced drop calls though I'm living in NY, so I don't know if its all Apple/IPhone thats causing all the issues, I mean is that the only phone with AT&T that stream YouTube... I mean they make you take an unlimited internet plan and than when you use it, oh you're using to much of your unlimited plan, you need to cut back. I don't know just ranting a bit, which is kinda weird considering I don't have an IPhone - anyway here's the article [Read More]

    I actually think a Verizon model would work OK because they do not allow simultaneous voice & data. sure the iPhone will push and pull a boatload of data, but each one won't lock up 2 channels on the towers as it does on AT&T's network.

    I truly believe we will see tiered data plans across all of the carriers in the near future. This will allow them to collect money appropriately from the 4-5% of users that are hogging all the bandwidth. (Do we REALLY want to run data from our laptop through a cell phone?) Another fix is for the carriers to seriously increase back-haul connections from the cell towers to the core networks and then they can increase the # of connections a cell tower can handle and the data it can transmit.
    ------

    From time to time, you have to wonder...... What was I saying?

    I'm sure if Verizon carried the iPhone first the situation would be reversed and we would be dogging them right now.. I'm sure AT&T offering multi-tasking doesn't help either but I TOTALLY dig being able to talk on the phone and chat on messenger. Carriers like Verizon (AND AT&T) are learning from the mistakes and understanding how much we use and how much DEMAND there is to ALWAYS be "Connected". Sorry for the rant and I'm not siding with AT&T one bit cause I'm totally sick of dropped calls and "radio congestion" in my own neighborhood... Everyone be safe this New Years Eve and look forward to many more posts in 2010.

    AT&T's engineers and techs should have had the foresight to look down the road and see this problem happening if they sold X-hundred thousand iphones, I mean come on.

    I have the iPhone and I have a verizon phone , can't complain bout the AT&T service. I do enjoy the multi-tasking that I'm able to do on the iPhone (talk and text or email/IM, at the same time). Unlike the verizon phones and the droid.... Unless your on wifi, which is never for me.


    Understand the rants, but no rants or complaints here.
