At&t has a lot of business customers. And rim understands that in order to reach those business customers they have to put a phone in place, and I think the bold will out sell the 8900 on tmo anyday. But put the 8900 on at&t and they'll sell just as good.
I've worked for both companies and at&t has more business deals set everyday then tmo gets in a month. So keep that in mind.

Stop lying clownz. AT&T's network sucks ballz. I had a Blackberry Curve 8300 for a week on AT&T and had to cancel service because of their shiteous network coverage.

my buddy, a tmo employee, says there will be a new qwerty blackberry in Q1. we're guessing its the javelin, so yea, Q1... that sucks. I'm way to tempted to jump ship with AT&Ts lineup...
If Tmo Dont Get The Javelin Im Selling My Bb And Going Back To An Iphone
rooted mt3g! gtalk me androidn3rd...looking to flash more roms the best ones of course who knows of any?
I would like to see "exclusive to a certain carrier" dropped altogether.
It seems to me that if RIM were to roll out their devices by making them available to as many carriers as possible on launch day they would certainly sell more units. Yes, I am aware of the challenges that would present, as each carrier has it's own specific needs for it's network. However if I step back and look at the big picture, where I see so many carriers that eventually got the Curve anyway, why not give it to them all at the same time?
This would not only sell more units, but create a new reputation for RIM as the customer friendly company that does not force you to change carriers to get the phone you want. Everyone wins..
i have sprint and i have service in alot of places that at&t has no service i was in the mountains earlier today and i had full signal my friend has at&t he had no service i have never dropped a call in 10 years with sprint their plans and prices can't be beaten only thing that sucks is the phone selection it takes longer for them to get the phones because they wait till it is right before they put a new device out
my 2 cents
i just wish they were getting the storm
I'm feeling the same way. I am not concerned about coverage or price because my parents have AT&T (I had them way back in the day when they were Houston Cellular 12 years ago). I use my mom's phone a lot (great signal at home and when travelling. Her phone worked like a pro during Ike, whereas I couldn't do anything on my phone) and I can afford my own plan. I might even switch to a completely different phone if I switch in 2 years.

I have family members on both at&t and verizon, sprint and I am on tmobile. Stop the wars on carrier vs carrier, they all have their issues and none of them are the best. We are so far behind the rest of the world it's not even funny, yet still people want to say who the best carrier here in the US. We r getting shafted, by paying all these fees amd phones not working very well on US carriers. We need to make a stand and have the US step up their game so that we can compete with the rest in the business. Stop the arguing, bitching and complaining and do something about it?
because att is the largest provider. att has the best customer satisfaction. best service. best everything! I have tryed all providers and they failed to meet the standards that att has. so att is never standard its satisfiing!
been a att costomer for 5 years! nextel 1 and veriozon 1/2 a year and t-mobile for 1 year. i have tried the big guys
How Blackberry can beat Iphone: Make a better product than the Iphone. I personally like AT&T and think RIM could beat Apple head to head on AT&T if and when they produce their next superior product, which might be the Bold????
Well, BB Storm (one that is most similar to iPhone) is on Verizon and not on ATT.
The delay of the Bold on the ATT network was for 1 reason and one reason only

upon looking into things they saw that the iPhone was eating up 80% of the network's bandwidth.....Since Apple wasn't going to admit to the faulty device ATT decided to step to the plate and dump 1 Million into their 3G network so that when the Bold was released there were no issues.
This is why it took so long for the Bold to come out on ATT....ATT didn't want to put out their Flagship BB and have it fail....
the only fault ATT has in this is not communicating what was going on to the public....they should have informed us....but I respect their decision to delay things so it would be released on a network that would handle it.
The young man knows the rules, and the old man will enforce them!
I agree 150% you should be able to get the phone no matter what service you use,,that kind of sucks if you dont have this company, cant get this phone etc. Then they make you sign a contract for two years...not a fair monopoly.

"If You Don't Like Me Just Remember It's Mind Over Matter..I Don't Mind and You Dont Matter"
That is correct most of the Gov't contracts are with Verizon and Sprint/Nextel, yes Sprint/Nextel. I work for a State Govt as we have a state contract with them and I do know of more than just ours. As far as the Feds they use CDMA as it was the 1st to us encryption of all traffic. I use to be able to use a scanner and listen to everything but CDMA. Have not tried in a long time as most of the new scanners block those frequencies. Verizon and Sprint do have alot if not most of Federal contracts combined.
