Do I miss the AT&T iphone?

In Uncategorized on May 31, 2011 at 2:26 pm

Sorry for the downtime folks.  I do have a life.  And I will still never call a phone sexy.

 

Now that we’re all caught up… I haven’t had as much to write about lately because I finally have a phone that I am marginally satisfied with.  That phone being the Verizon iPhone 4.  The Verizon iPhone 4 is not without its problems, but it did resolve an issue for me that I was having with my AT&T iphone.  That issue was dropped calls.  I would drop calls in my area like crazy. 

 

So what shit town do you live in, Phonefreek?  What small market po-dunk town are you complaining about not getting reception in?  Why did you just refer to yourself in the third person you asshole?

 

Well, I live in a little town near Lake Michigan that you may have heard of.  Maybe not.  It’s called CHICAGO.  So the AT&T iPhone 4 sucks in Chicago, that is a fact.  There are a couple of things that I miss about it that my Verizon iPhone can’t do.

1) The Apple iPhone 4 is WAY faster on 3G.  I am disappointed with the speed of Verizon 3G.  It leaves a lot to be desired in the speed department.

2) I liked being able to talk on the phone and surf the web at the same time.  That is something that the Verizon iPhone 4 cannot do.

 

These reasons are not a good enough reason for me to consider going BACK to AT&T (especially now that their data plans top out at 2G as opposed to Verizon’s “unlimited” data).

 

A new development has intrigued me though.  The white iPhone that was finally released a few weeks ago does not seem to suffer from dropped calls as much as the black one that has been out for almost a year now.  The white iPhone 4 also supposedly has a redesigned proximity sensor to address the problem with “face muting” and “face hangups” a problem that I had on both the AT&T AND Verizon Black iPhone 4.

 

Are you still with me?  Haven’t fallen asleep yet?  So I think the conclusion I have come to is that I should buy the WHITE iPhone 4 on AT&T so I can talk and surf at the same time, with faster 3G speeds, no face dialing, AND it’s cheaper than Verizon.  Or wait for the (most likely problem laden) iphone 4S to come out in September…

Decisions, decisions.
