we wanna get iphones when we get to FL but wondering how the ATT service is down there. I was there with my lousy t-mobile phones last week and just couldn't get service!! it was awful!

We will be living in Osprey and would like to use the iphones as our primary phones (no land line) or...i guess get the fios voip if we can get a good triple play deal for 1 year contract.

(also, do I have to stop sayin' "wanna" once I leave NY?)

I have Verizon and use a Blackberry and don't have any issues. Once I renew I'll probably go for the Droid.

Default ATT in Venice

I visited Venice in April with my iphone. I used it from Sarasota to North Port to Englewood and it was great.

i've used my verizon service with no problems whatsoever. My friends have Sprint and then can't get service in many areas, including my neighborhood.

Speaking of At&t ,do they provide internet and cable in Sarasota? I have them in Mi (for another month!) and would choose them again.

No, Verizon is the primary carrier here, so At&t doesn't offer those services. If you have U-Verse then I think that you will find Verizon's FIOS to be a similar offering.
