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.

I read on one of these Apple bash AT&T sites that AT&T moves more data from the iPhone than all other carriers do combined from all smart phones. I doubt V is even close to the amount of data AT&T moves. We can complain about a single carrier for the iPhone all day long and it will not change it. (As the past several years of complaining here show)

[QUOTE=SHOBIZ;1649608]I read on one of these Apple bash AT&T sites that AT&T moves more data from the iPhone than all other carriers do combined from all smart phones.

The simple solution is to open the iPhone to all carriers and lighten the load! They did that with the Blackberry, exclusive to T mobile, then open to all.

Rather than switch from ATT, just allow the others to provide service. No more gripes about which one is better.No more hacks and unlocks needed. Find out who is best by opening the iphone to everyone!

TIMES UP!

Which makes the case for having the iPhone on more than one network. It should be available on all 4 major carriers to help share the load. Oops, beat to the punch by nrp

Does AT&T move more data than Verizon in the whole world or just the USA?

I was comparing VZ to ATT in the New York metro area specifically because that is the only area I am qualified to comment about. Ten years ago I couldn't make a cell phone call on ATT. That's why I switch to VZ. What was the VZ to ATT ratio back then?

As far as complaining, I do think Apple listens to traffic on the internet. That is why I complain. It sure isn't for the satisfaction of getting my head handed to me every time I make a post here. (I don't mean you.)

I do not disagree, but why do so many waste so much time and space on these sites with childish, unproductive, disruptive BS instead which at times is difficult to not get caught up in? Obviously Apple would be using another or additional carrier if they could or wished to.
post #48 of 82
Apple, how many reasons do you need before switching from AT&T to Verizon or Sprint or something?

Limited and expensive data plans
Poor reliability and coverage
Unable to do FaceTime or a number of other things over their 3G
Slowish speeds
Security flaw on website...

Come on already! The world and plenty of potential customers are waiting!

eh, your complaint is not even comparible to some of the stuff I have seen.
Reasonable discussion about issues or just dislikes is no problem by me. Some of the other rants such as "AT&T is just here to F#@k us" are just silly, a waste of time and resources.
I would just like to see more conversation about Apple and its products. That is what drove me to this site instead of 9to5mac to begin with. Hitting my Favs and going to the AppleInsider home page everyday and seeing AT&T did this or AT&T did that is not appealing. I guess it does get their click throughs though.\\

This is not the first time or the last where personal data is hacked over the internet.

Whether you like it or not, your personal data (credit cards, medical history, purchase history, salary, etc) is contained in hundreds, if not thousands, of databases that are accessible by thousands, if not millions, of employees who can access this data, legally or not.

Welcome to the Internet Age.

And I bet that data will likely be getting hacked when we are in the ground to. (They can have it then )

It's Apple's choice. They alone decide exclusivity. Obviously, Apple is getting more kickback from 1 carrier verses multiple carriers....which is why they have decided to remain with just AT&T.

I think that Apple still remembers Verizon's ignorance and arrogance by refusing to work with Apple.

My money is on T-Mobile as the next carrier....they use the same 3G standard as AT&T.

I would not dismiss Apple remembering Verizons response either and T-Mobile would be interesting to see (hopefully) grow customers and improve competition.

I'd believe that before I did the silly conspiracy theory of the previous post.

BTW,another Apple blog site states, "Matt Buchanon had a little conversation with AT&T security chief Ed Amororo on the hack" There is no Ed Amororo at AT&T.

The last r should be a s.

The only question here is how the other telcos will respond. Will they say "Steve, now are you ready to talk?", or will they say "Ha! F-you!" ?

Verizon did the refusal first when presented to by Apple. So Apple took it to Cingular who was in the process of buying out ATT. Verizon has the lousiest track record when it comes to selection of cellphones, charging for features originally provided by the mfgr but locked by Verizon, so you could pay a premium to unlock that feature. Not to mention some of the highest (until recently) data network charges - from a former Verizon customer. And yet Apple iPhone users surveyed reported the highest satisfaction rating in the entire industry - far beyond ANY other cellphone.

AND

You embarrass entirely too easily. Don't think for a minute that Apple hasn't mapped out it's expansion strategy well ahead of all the criticism. But more importantly time and again user surveys have shown that users, while complaining about the ATT coverage still report extreme satisfaction with the iPhone itself.

AND

They are trying to negotiate with Apple not vice versa - no other cellphone ecosystem has the strength, the delivery system or support. Period. They are trying to wangle the best deal they can in light of the iPhone market strength. And Apple is looking critically at their systems to see if they can support the kind of data networking that the iPhone population demand places on a network.

post #63 of 82
I agree Shobiz, why are people being so silly and critical of Apple for having one network, since it has been stated many times that Apple have contractual agreement with AT&T for iPhone. I do not know if this is true, but come on people collectively Apple is much smarter than us (pretty smart people in this forum) and they would have probably incorporated more networks, if the situation allowed.

Article by Gawker is so baised, it is not funny, come on stop with sour grapes, shut down your gossip news web site, since you will not be getting anymore Apple goodies in future and as we say it "maybe when hell freezes over, then Apple will invite you back" :-)

OK.. I couldn't hold back any more:

Apple DOES NOT MAKE A CDMA iPhone! And I seriously doubt they ever will!

GET OVER IT!

When Verizon switches over to 4G and LTE, Apple will be there... BUT NOT BEFORE!

THE REST OF THE WORLD USES GSM and we are happy with our service and choice of GSM (read: NOT CDMA!) carriers! We are also upgrading networks here in Europe to 4G, so we'll also be ready for that day.

CDMA is DEAD... OLD... DATED...TECH!

Are the majority of you still stuck in Ami-Land (I'm an Ami living in Europe for 20+/yrs) that dumb?

Or do you pretend to be just for the argument and bashing?!

Go stuff your CDMA wishes into a Goatse-Space.

After calming down somewhat, I must say, I feel sorry for you guys Stateside... and for Apple, that you have such a worthless choice for network carriers.

If anything.... that's what I'm P'd about!

I can't for the life of me imagine leaving Europe and having to go back to the Stone-Age of network compatibility(!). Even to visit seems it would be painful tech-wise; not to mention suffering the idiot-sphere that can't read, or inform themselves beyond Fox headline news, Netflix, Hulu, or a Comedy Show.

Amazing that Apple is even an American company these days. The rest of your business(es) are truly shocking in their greed and inability to pull themselves into the 21st Century, kicking, screaming and conniving the whole way! Simply and sadly: PATHETIC!

As I've asked before here in other threads: is Apple and SJ the ONLY leaders in tech these days? People talk about choice... show me another tech-leader that's even half the visionary of SJ and his Apple-Team. None. Zero.

You/we/I have no choice. Just Wanna-Be-CEOs-cum-Board-Spies and copy machine operators. Don't forget a PR Team in their employ to bash Apple at any chance when the recorder battery or toner runs out, and their "i-Killer Device" is a dud. That's "American-Made" these days. How sad!

Thank Gawd that I have a great experience with all things "Designed in California"... albeit in Europe!

PS: Funny how the 60's Flower-Power Gen now in the Power-Suites, are worse in many ways then their parent's gen. that they protested against... way back when.

(I'm showing my age... how sad! and

<rant_over>

PS: Before someone else points it out, I must admit that it's just as pathetic that European businesses and govt.'s follow like sheep, at every whim and trend in America. We have no "gonads" either if truth be known.

Thank you PixelDoc. I've been wanting to scream the same thing. Even if they could, I don't see Apple making a CDMA phone. Especially when they will switch to 4G phones next year.

And if Verizon was using GSM like the rest of the world is today, I suspect that that the iPhone would be on both ATT and Verizon networks.

Whatever journalistic integrity that Gawker had left (and that was very little), you'd think they'd get a headline right. Sadly, they don't have the integrity to even get that right.

Gizmodo are just a bunch of Apple hating hacks, they also give mega reviews to 'meh' Android phones and heavily criticise the iPhone etc. (Unfortunately it's the same with a lot of tech websites, they too also let other companies off because there not as 'big and mighty' as the evil Apple and cannot produce phones as good as them... BUT THE COMPANY IS MUCH NICER!) You expect many 'techies' to respect Apple... no. They go against all what they think; that companies should just create great gadgets and it should all be conservative with nothing real radical happening.

Let us not forget someone broke the law doing this, and they should "Pass go, and got straight to jail"!

Many are picking on AT&T on the list, and they do have some blame to accept, but those who BROKE into the system, are the real culprits and do need to be held accountable for their actions.

Remember folks, this is YOUR (in some cases) information they STOLE and are passing on to others.

I agree, and this could have been any system being broken into or compromised. Just because some group did it or the system was AT&T's does not make it okay. Waaay too many of these acts occur and are basically ignored these days.

Image if someone broke into your home (while you were not there) and stole several items. The police said, "Well you did not have adequate security at the time. It's your fault. Bah Bye".

While security was or may be an issue that does not clear the criminal of their activity.

Welcome to the Internet Age.

It's even worse that that: every day millions of people hand their credit card to a 16 year old waiter who leaves the room with it for several minutes. Even when the card info isn't stolen by a disgruntled employee, many retailers still use carbons and don't always shred them, making your CC info available to any dumpster diver.

Doesn't sound that odd to me.

Note that in a Consumer Reports study of U.S. mobile operators, Verizon beat out AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint by a few points, just above the threshold of statistical significance (according to CR). I recall all the scores were bunched in the mid 70s. That essentially means that Verizon is a 37" giant in a kingdom of three-foot midgets.

AT&T isn't much of a step down from Verizon unless you happen to live in an area that AT&T services poorly.


Disagree. I've had both. Verizon is better. I'm not saying it's great, but it's better. AT&T has service gaps everywhere. I live in the Philly suburbs/exurbs, and there are 3G dead zones everywhere.

Does "trolling" apply to AppleInsider?

While it's not Apple's fault the breach happened, there is a certain irony: after kicking cross-platform developers in the teeth over, among other things, security risks, Apple gets their biggest security exposure from their own partner.

Fortunately the info stolen was fairly insignificant, and apparently not hard for AT&T to correct once it happened. But Gawkers' description of the exploit made it seem so trivial that it makes one wonder what sort of lax security awareness do they have at AT&T that it was set up that way to begin with? Is Balmer running AT&T?

The ICC-ID combined with email address *can* be useful. I've seen a hack involving your ICC-ID to spoof the Storm8 servers to allow you to play their games in a web browser rather than your Apple Mobile device (sorry, iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch/iFuture Stuff is getting long... ). I've never *paid* for anything in their games, but that has potential, too.

Of course, one could already get the information necessary on a few people from their stupidity photos...

Go stuff your CDMA wishes into a Goatse-Space.

Lets think about this for a second... You say CMDA is dead, old, dated technology. This may very well be true, but is it still be used? Yes. Is it being phased out quickly? No.

So lets say conservatively, there's 10 years left in CMDA. For 10 years Apple is going to call it dead technology and ignore it? This doesn't make sense from a business perspective, but then again, having one of the best phones (made by an American company mind you) limited to a single network in America, that doesn't make much sense either.

So really, the reason can't be that cdma is "dead old dated technology." We're not talking about VHS or something. CMDA is very much still being used, and will be that way for a good chunk of time.

While I must say that there has been SOME improvement in the past year for AT&T, there is no comparison whatsoever. Verizon has better call quality, fewer dropped calls and fewer dead zones, not to mention vastly superior 3G coverage. My Dad has had Verizon (and Sprint) in Southwest Florida and my brother has hadd AT&T in Northeast PA and Verizon in Houston, TX. There is absolutely no comparison.

When I got my iPhone, it was nearly useless as a phone for the first 6 months. I dropped at least 5 calls a day in the Philadelphia area. 3G was slow when it worked. It was ALL the network. I went up to Boston for a weekend, and it was like getting a new phone. Fast 3G, good calls, etc. My phone is now useable in the area and 3G has been better. But there are still random stops with data, dropped calls, etc. It's just that there are not as many of them. Oh, and AT&T's customer service is a PILE. My wife and I went to AT&T store to combine our plans. The rep at the store even had trouble getting AT&T to understand what we wanted. Of course, they also charge you an $18 "upgrade fee" for anything you change. Anything.

Now, having said all that, yes...Verizon would probably have some adoption problems if millions of new iPhone users came their way within a few months. But their network is far better. Presumably, more carrier choice would also lighten AT&T's load.
