Verizon iPhone – Can you hear us AT&T?

The WSJ is on board. The CDMA Verizon iPhone is expected after September (Sprint,also CDMA, too?). The AT&T iPhone will be shown in early June, probably available end of June.

My wife’s iPhone AT&T contract should be up in the Fall of this year, my contract expired last January. We have no reliable AT&T iPhone voice service in our St. Paul home. This is a big change from a year ago when iPhone service in MSP was fair to good. We’re paying for services AT&T can’t deliver – because they oversold their capacity.

We’re ready to switch.

If AT&T wants to keep our $2,400 plus/year family fees they need to do one or more of

  1. Fix our home voice service.
  2. Provide a free MicroCell for home use with some extra benefits.
  3. Dramatically reduce our phone bill.

It will be a great relief to have Verizon on board no matter what we do.

If we stay with AT&T, the combination of a likely 10% drop in AT&T iPhone users and a large decrease in new AT&T iPhone customers will improve service quality and dramatically reduce the cost of a used AT&T iPhone.

If we switch to Verizon (Sprint?) we’d get 3 new 4th generation iPhones and our old devices will become iTouch-equivalents.

Can’t happen soon enough.
