It shouldn’t be so damn hard to talk to your friend on the phone. From this point forward every time AT&T drops one of my calls, I’m sending them a tweet. I encourage others to do the same. Reblog this shit if you’ve finally had enough.
The truth is, Apple needs to get on Verizon, and fast, or it risks losing customers to Android. If Verizon gets the iPhone, I’d expect a huge exodus from AT&T. Which probably explains some of AT&T’s recent behavior. With the release of iPhone 4, AT&T made an unusual offer to current owners of iPhones, telling them that even if their contracts weren’t close to being over, they could still push up their expiration date and upgrade to the iPhone 4—as long as they signed a new two-year contract.
Many people jumped on that offer, and some even viewed it as a case of AT&T being generous. Um, not likely. More likely it’s that AT&T knows its exclusive lock on iPhone is coming to an end, and so it sought to lock in as many iPhone users before the deal with Verizon happens.
To those folks who waited in line for hours and hours to take advantage of AT&T’s “generous” offer, I can only offer my condolences and point out that, given AT&T’s past behavior, you should have known better.

Gabe Delahaye: My Internet Campaign To Destroy AT&T
Last year, my phone was stolen. It was the saddest thing that has ever happened to anyone in the history of the world, I’m sure. But, OK, I recognize that there are much worse things to happen in your life than to have your phone stolen, and yet it is still very frustrating, and maybe the word…

“ The iPhone is AT&T’s biggest wireless growth driver; however, the company’s contract as Apple’s sole U.S. partner is expected to end over the next year. The loss of exclusivity could enable iPhone customers—particularly those frustrated by the carrier’s network issues—to go to rivals, specifically Verizon Wireless, although high early termination fees could serve as a deterrent.

they sense the end is near. my contract runs out on july 14th, then the revolution begins.
I would really love to make at least one call today that doesn’t fail. Just one. Why is that so much to ask?
Just dumped my ATT DSL for Cable Internet. OMG, it’s faster. (OK, I’m late to the feast.)
