AT&T vs. Verizon iPhone

It’s been more than 24 hours since I purchased my iPhone through AT&T, and I think I made the right decision.

I’ll admit that the prompt to finally getting the sleek and sexy “pocket printing press” was that Verizon was getting it, meaning my sister was purchasing one. And while I like Verizon’s in-store customer service, appreciate the competitive price plans and know that I would utilize the free tethering, I’m glad I went with AT&T for many reasons.

AT&T works off a GSM network, rather than CDMA, which Verizon uses. This means that my AT&T iPhone will work in more countries (the dream is still alive), and I can talk on the phone and use Google Maps at the same time, which is something that you can’t do with Verizon unless you’re using Wifi – and this is no free Wifi when I’m cruising down I-5 and elsewhere. However this may change in the future.

In addition to these things, articles discussing Verizon’s data policies and speed are being published. Those who are using large amounts of data are going to see their speeds slow. And here I was expecting Verizon to really be prepared for this iPhone launch. I’m guessing that its network is going to get bogged down like the way AT&T’s was, which would have disappointed me as a Verizon customer.

There are probably going to be more reasons why choosing AT&T rather than Verizon will prove to be the right move. And believe me, I’ll keep you updated!

If Marcia Miller had to pick up everything and leave, then she'd make sure to grab a few things before she left. First, the duffel bag is a must, followed by her laptop and iPod. She grabs her journal next, along with every CD she owns - just in case. Miller pulls off the pictures and concert tickets that adorn her walls. A towel is going to be handy too - this she learned from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." Finally, she grabs a handful of pens and her trusty AP Stylebook, throws her duffel back over her back and picks up her purse. Closing the door behind her, she leaves her apartment, heads down the stairs and... Well, Miller heads to your office because she's ready to do a job. She is ready to move at a moment's notice, write what needs to be written, edit what needs to be edited, promote what you think the world needs to know about. Miller's got the personality, the skills and the spunk to succeed in any situation. She's not afraid of trying new things or getting her feet wet. Her moto: If an opportunity doesn't present itself, then create one.
