It is hard to believe that with less amount of investment, one can earn lot as the AT&T is trying to do this time. Seems that there is something hidden behind the scenes.

AT & T strikes me as a company that likes to play it safe, as long as they are making good money they won’t go the extra mile to bring better service to their customers. I think there are better cpa affiliate network options on the market.

Stop buying into or paying for AT&T's products. Yes, your credit will take a temporary slip, going to another company or getting something other than the greatest phone made, but if AT&T won't take the hint after a lot of people do this, Apple will certainly take the hint to either spread to a lot/ all cell phone carriers, or they will go somewhere else with the iPhone. (Of course, there is the actual dependance on others - a lot of others, in fact - doing this, and the possibility that Apple will get the wrong message and stop making the iPhone as well, but given the stunts AT&T are pulling, I'd say the risk is worth it.) (Of course, the sad, sick truth, of course, is that people WON'T do this because everyone's too afraid NO ONE ELSE will. Dumbasses!)

YoutubeWe need to sign a petition they need to get with the times and they should see by now that once the iPhone sets it sails for better seas (Verizon) there will be no war on who is better. 10 million iPhone customers will go with them. What a joke, really De La Vega you should watch what you say especially if your financial quarterlys are just around the corner.

This is a disgrace. I was just at my local AT&T store tonight to again inquire when 3G is coming to our county. We are surrounded by three counties all with 3G. I've had my iPhone 3G for 18 months, and we can't even get decent Edge data service, let alone 3G. In June they told me 3G would be here by December. Last month they told me "Sorry - that's off ... the company had decided not to invest in 3G here after all." Tonight they first said it would be here in a couple months. I asked why I was told a month ago it wasn't coming, and they said "That's what the company told us last month." So, I asked again "Now, tell me again when is this supposed to be up by?" I was then told 2Q or 3Q 2010. I don't believe the hand knows what the foot is doing. I DO know I will change to Verizon the day they can support the iPhone.

I totally agree with you! I really haven't been this upset over something in awhile and up until now I have given ATT the benefit of the doubt. I mean wireless data has grown 300% in the last year alone but if you are charging 10 more dollars a month for iphones and then you go on the record saying "We need to let iphone customers know what 1 mb of usage is" This is horrible De La Vega and the ATT boys have some explaining to do. The surprising thing is that Apple should of known about this. If a company like Apple is going to get in bed with a company like ATT you would think they would want to know how much the company is putting into infrastructure. They know they pocketed money for three years now and with the 3Gs set to sell 10 million in this quarter they are feeling the pain on their god awful network.

We need to sign a petition they need to get with the times and they should see by now that once the iPhone sets it sails for better seas (Verizon) there will be no war on who is better. 10 million iPhone customers will go with them. What a joke, really De La Vega you should watch what you say especially if your financial quarterlys are just around the corner.

I hope this isn't the last we hear about this and I hope they have to answer for their horrible mystakes as well as "blaming" loyal iPhone (which in turn are ATT) customers.

My family owns 4 iPhones. My DSL is provided through AT&T. I pay a fortune every month to AT&T for passable service. I stay partly out of necessity (iPhones) and partly out of loyalty. However, if my loyalty means supporting a company that has lost sight of its priorities by going for short term gain, then I'd be a real sucker to keep paying for it. Maybe we need a petition telling AT&T that as soon as Verizon handles the iPhone and other Apple wireless products we're dropping AT&T service. Until then, we're not only money choked but stuck.
