Am I wrong in my belief that hundreds of people in the USA have smart phones on the Verizon network that do not have the issues that iPhone customers have?
I do know that in the New York Metro Area, AT&T had horrible service in the late 90's, nearly a decade before the world had iPhones. So I think there are issues with the network.
I don't know how cell phones work, but I do know that a cell phone does work on the Verizon network and it doesn't work on AT&T in my area. Verizon rules in New York. This wouldn't be true if people were walking around dropping calls.
Steve Jobs says any network would be strained with iPhone traffic. Perhaps so. Isn't that the best argument to have multiple carriers?
Apple is all about the experience. For years we have happily paid an "apple tax" for products that "just work out of the box." What kind of experience is dropping an important call over and over? Not a very good one. What did he say at the keynote when he couldn't get online? "I don't like this." Good Steve. Now you know how I have felt every day for two years.
Of course it's a moot point. There is no Verizon iPhone and according to Steve Jobs, this is a good thing. So that's the way it's going to stay. So I guess there is nothing left to argue about.
