    That is correct. See

    Most so-called 'mergers' are, in actuality, acquisitions of one company by the other.

    True- I prefer those SJ spotted at a ColdPlay concert articles anyday over this.

    Yeah, 3G service in Gainesville are awesome. I haven't had any problems. Do not sign up in Ocala b/c they don't currently offer 3G network down there yet. I moved to Durham, NC few weeks ago and their 3G service is OK, but not the best. Gainesville 3G is better. I dunno why.

    Sadly, very sadly, I returned my iPhone to the Apple Store 12 hours after purchase. I live in the middle of the Phoenix area in a very densely populated community, and I was unable to get AT&T service in my home. So glad to hear the AT&T stores will look nicer, but I'll never step foot in one. I'm holding out for iPhone on Verizon.

    TRUE STORY: After the AT&T customer service technician tried unsuccessfully to help me, he confided in me that his personal mobile phone is on Verizon because "AT&T doesn't have reliable coverage in most of the areas I find myself." So much for his worry that the call would be recorded for quality control!

    THEN when I returned the phone to the Apple Store, the customer service guy was so understanding. I thought that was odd since I was returning a product and there were no questions asked or any sort of "are you sure?!?". Then when we were done and chatting about AT&T, he showed me his personal mobile phone -- also on Verizon.

    WAKE UP, APPLE! AT&T may be good for some folks, but for a very disappointed large group of us, your exclusive arrangement is a showstopper. You've saturated the AT&T market -- now you're just pissing people off. Switch to Verizon and you'll sell many, many more millions of iPhones.

    An iPhone without a functional phone is just an i, and I already have two of those...
