Yep, that does make me a little angry. They offered it first to Verizon, but verizon turned it down.There is no AT&T towers near me. THere is a verizon though.

Yeah, that's always been the plan. Another reason why I'd never get it - Cingular's plans and service is crap compared to Verizon here.

Yes that is true, but Verizon should carry it since they have the largest network. Just basically Verizon is the best and they do not carry one of the new coolest phones.

Haha, yeahh...

I think they are the biggest on a large scale now that they acquired Cingular. Cingular had a huge network already. Verizon is only really good on the east coast U.S. as far as I know. I remember on trips to New Mexico and California, service was crap. The reason they dominate the east coast is because of their IN plan. I got unlimited IN calling and texting, and I've never gone over my plan since.

One other thing about the iPhone - it requires at least a $60/monthly service plan to use.

Yea, Verizon is only popular in ares. In other ares maybe Cingular is popular. But out of the whole world Verizon is the most worldwide used.

Cingular ended 2006 with 61 million and Verizon with 59 million. This is just talking about direct retail subscribers. Cingular has a big chunk of the government and major businesses.

Not at all. (Former) Cingular is probably bigger than Verizon overall. Verizon is mostly only popular on the east coast U.S.

@ Mustang, yes, Cingular controls most of the business cellular plans.

Agreed.

Apple's exclusivity with AT&T is a bad idea. Not only is their coverage and stability horrible, their EDGE mobile broadband network is ancient and the iPhone only works with 2G, not 3G networks like Verizon and Sprint Nextel's EVDO networks.

Yes, I have the most posts here. That's what happens when you consistently post for almost three years.
