ATT vs. Verizon

    Yeah, I was thinking about the merger as well, and not sure how things will
    pan out with Cingular. Was unaware of AT&T starting back up again with
    Sprint though. If I do sign another contract it'll probably be with
    Verizon, unless I wait until the merger goes through but I'm not sure I want
    to wait that long...heard it was going to be next year some time.

    thx

  6. I had ATTWS for over 20 years, got fed up with their level of service, and
    switched to VZW. WHAT A CHANGE THAT MADE!!! VZW is +20 on a scale of 1-10;
    ATTWS is -1000! I have the Samsung i600 and love it (although it would be
    nice to have the latest version of Smartphone!). Sync's great to my laptop,
    my iPaq, and lots of programs available to make it work for business.
