Bronxguyanese that's kind of Apple's schtick. What they are known for. They take ideas that have been around but put their slick design and marketing behind it...

iPhone isn't the carrier AT&T has to allow it. . .furthermore with iPhone 4 you can tether on AT&T now.

The reception is cool I think the whole "Verizon is better" situation is hyped alittle too much. Every carrier has it's flaws and I have 3G mostly every time I look at my phone/use it.

I can't wait to upgrade and hopefully Apple allows another carrier (I see T-Mobile before Verizon) so that AT&T's network won't be as strained.

Im not sure if you know about this, but the contract between Apple and At&t is up during the summer of 2012. Basically Apple and At&t signed an exclusive five year contract, so dont expect T-Mobile or Verizon to get the iphone anytime soon or maybe never. I wish Apple did allow more carries to have the Iphone like in the UK were all major carries sell iphones. At&t network will always bestrained espicially since most of its users are located in highly congested urban areas. Im not sure if any At&t subscribers jumped off there iphones and went over to sprint for there evo 4g, hopefully that elievates congestion. Im not sure if you guys knew about this buy At&t lost service through out the south east US and Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands, but 3g edge and data were offlline.

Wow, I got an iPhone 4 today and after 9 hours it just became activated. I don't believe that AT&T sucks in NYC idea anymore, I did a speed test on my phone and it reached 4.23 Mbps download speed.

The again I tested it in Queens and not the urban areas of the city, but that's still impressive though. I'm quite surprised.

However I know for a fact AT&T & T-Mobile aren't good in a lot of rural areas.

AT&T sucks all they have is the Iphone but Verizon's htc incredible faired better than the iphone when they were put side by side. People are getting the Iphone for the novelty so they will deal with crappy at&t's network.

I own the Droid Incredible and it is by far better than the new IPhone. My friend owns one and, after putting them side by side and comparing them for extensive amounts of time, mine was always faster. And I have never had a dropped call. The reception is excellent. My only complaint is Verizon is a bit pricey (450 minutes for $40, network plan for $30). But I guess that is true of any smartphone plan and AT&T isn't any better.
