AT&T and T-Mobile SF Bay Area+ Cell Sites - with Cell ID labels
Over 1,100 AT&T sites in the 9 Bay Area counties + San Benito, Santa Cruz and Monterey counties
Now over 1,500 T-Mobile sites in these 12 counties
Instead let's take a look instead at the recently released AT&T quarterly report:
We find that churn was an ultra-low 1.15% which is improved from the prior quarter. So that shows there's not all of these dissatisfied customers on AT&T as you claim. In fact AT&T had net adds of 331,000 postpaid subscribers.
T-Mobile on the other hand as much higher churn and is losing postpaid subscribers.
That only happened to iPhone customers who tethered via the wrong APN. As I don't recall you expressing interest in using the iPhone, I don't think you have much to worry about.Originally Posted by Antenna
I don't care if they fail on some temporary convention center network for the next 10 years. I won't be there. It has nothing to do with the service I will receive on their permanent HSPA+ & LTE network.Originally Posted by Antenna
AT&T has never retroactively applied tethering charges to previous bills. This is false.Originally Posted by silentjudge

But I agree, I have plenty of friends who stick with Verizon for their supposed excellent coverage and "because they rule the air" haha. A friend of mine barely gets 1 bar at his home with VZW and yet still uses them.
If at&t is so wonderful, why they always come up last in Consumer Reports and JD Power year after year..... Their low churn is due to the power of iPhone, not due to wonder of network

There is comfort traveling in a herd, especially on things people do not understand and don't want to think about.
i have always said and try to remind people its not a merger its a purchase very different "rules"
"I'm Rick James ×××××"
Many people are loyal to Verizon because their coverage actually is great in most of the country. They have their trouble spots, but there is good reason why every national report places Verizon as the most reliable carrier in most cities in the US. Their customer service hasn't been completely outsourced like some other carriers and they do work hard for your business. Still I don't like the idea of tmobile gone. Less competition means Verizon and at&t getting bigger and greedier.

A phone is only fun when you can modify it anyway you please.
The Verizon UI....unhackable? I think not
I hope the buyout is blocked. The FCC and doj must see through Att lies about spectrum.
Funny thing is that while I am typing this, the annoying Att commercial comes on saying the planned combination of Tmobile will help them.
I don't know what a merger here would mean, T-Mobile is still the only carrier in our area without 3G, and they have stopped putting up new sites, so things couldn't get any worse than they are, maybe stay the same. I hate to say it, but AT&T has surpassed them here, with new sites and 3G on almost all of their network.
Edit-T-Mobile does have authorized dealers in Mendocino and Lake Counties now, DFM Car Stereo (a local audio/video place in the two counties only) and Radio Shack (corporate store in Ukiah only, the other stores are franchises and sell U.S. Cellular), so that's a good start. I have to wonder about their lack of new sites and 3G, either they are waiting to see what happens with the AT&T deal, or they just put up "just enough" sites in our area and have no plans to add more anytime soon. Verizon is set to have LTE 4G here next year sometime, and U.S. Cellular is planning on rolling it out here next year or in 2013.
