I LOVE my iPhone!  It’s the best phone I’ve ever owned, but the service is HORRIBLE!  I’m lucky if I can get any reception to make a call.  AT&T’s exclusive rights to the iPhone ends in 2010.  I read through this New York Times article that basically states that the more users on the AT&T network (iPhone being the biggest network drainer), the worse your service will get.  Here’s a summary of the article:


To sum up the article:

  • iPhone users use a lot more wireless data than users of other phone models
  • AT&T’s wireless network is unable to meet this demand
  • Voice services are affected adversely too
  • 34% of non-iPhone owners said they did not buy an iPhone because of AT&T’s poor reputation
  • Mobile data traffic is expected to double every year through 2013

Will my prayers be answered for a solid service one day? Hello?? Can you hear me??
