I'm so tired of paying almost 100 dollars a month, and AT&T is telling me,they will not give me full services.
100 dollars per month is a lot of money, and the ONLY thing AT&T wants users to do
is make short calls for that amount of money.
I tether with my phone, but there are many users that PAY for this and AT&T is ripping them off.
AT&T keeps going on with this crap, and people are just going to leave.
I have no clue why Apple tied down iPhone to just one cell phone company.
Now that AT&T has control, they are strangle holding everyone,
and charging for an little stupid thing.

With AT&T you miss:
- NO 7.2 Mbps: I travel all around the US and rarely get over 700k connection speeds
- NO MMS
- NO tethering
- NO TV streaming: i.e. Slingbox streaming
....soon Apple will see AT&T as the limiting growth factor in the US.
I don't know why Apple even placed any of these features knowing darn well
AT&T users wont be able to use any of these features, and if we do we will get charged
extremely high prices for services that should be standard.
Apple should have more control for their phones, instead of these strangle holds that AT&T has members in.
Here is an idea - How about Apple opening up their own Cell Phone Network...!!
or at least make a contract every cell phone network provider, so AT&T does not have so much control.
AT&T has way too much control and we the users are paying for it dearly.

And the thing is, people keep going along like nothing is happening and swallowing the cost.
People should just stop using AT&T, and you will see how fast AT&T will straighten up.
but as long as people keep paying and paying and swallowing the cost, AT&T will keep ripping people off.
and coming up with excuses and finding ways to charge people more for services they are not even getting or going to get.
Cingular had a great thing going until they sold out to AT&T.
Now we are paying for it.
Cingular was going in the right direction and their services is wha attracted many customers to their network.
and AT&T seen that, and wanted to control it, because AT&T was losing out on customers because of it.
And now we no longer have Cingular, and we are all screwed with AT&T after AT&T purchased Cingular.
Apple was going to have a good relationship with Cingular and AT&T was going to be left out.
AT&T was nearly in trouble until they purchased Cingular.
And no sooner they owned Cingular,
AT&T started to raise prices and collapsed Cingular's reputation as a better cell phone network provider.
And now ALL Cingular customers are suffering the consequences.
ONLY WE THE PEOPLE are holding back the potential future of cell phones.
and as long as AT&T has a chain around our necks, this is going to keep happening.
If iPhone was available for Verizon, T-Mobile, Boost Mobile etc etc.
I would of been left AT&T a long time ago.
but since AT&T has everyone on lock down.
We can't do anything except not become members or continue being members of AT&T.
Maybe we need to BOYCOTT AT&T.
WE THE PEOPLE control cellphone networks, NOT AT&T.
As long as we keep paying and being members,
we will always be in this hole.
We can NOT move into the future, as long as AT&T has a Strangle Hold on Customers,
and ripping them off for services that should be standard..
I HATE YOU AT&T.......!!!
