AT&T Sucks. Also, Water is Wet.
AT&T recently expanded its coverage into Vermont, where I live. Being a complete geek, I quickly got myself an iPhone. Of couse, I was excited. Over time, the splendor has faded. Here’s why:
After about 8 months in Vermont, AT&T still doesn’t offer 3G coverage anywhere in the state. So many times, that extra $30 a month for unlimited data is a moot point, since it would take an entire month of downloading to exceed any superimposed limit anyways.
Having nothing to do with Vermont, but very annoying nonetheless is the fact that AT&T (or Apple) rejected the Google Voice app for the iPhone. So that number I want, y0u know, 73-iPwn-9, is impossible. Thanks, AT&T, for killing my inner child.
Finally, and quite possibly most annoying, is AT&T’s ability to convert my expensive, highly capable iPhone into an iPod Touch. Yes, they actually pull this one off. Countless times, I have recieved voicemails without the phone ever having rung. I’m often told, when they phone does ring, that whoever it was tried to call me a few times immediately before that, but that it went straight to voicemail. Effectively making my iPhone into a iPod/Pager. Sweet.
