    I was on AT&T with a Focus but they didn't get me my employer's discount and their handling of NoDo caused me to switch to T-Mobile. I like it being faster on 3g but the coverage is absolutely pitiful--this phone is cause enough to switch back!

    This has been one of the only times that I've been glad to be on AT&T.

    I'll be switching from Sprint, a Galaxy S2. It's a great phone but I've wanted a WIndows phone for so long now, and this is the one.

    I would make sure that AT&T has good coverage in the places you spend the most time. Along with their higher prices and smaller selection of phones, VZW has much better coverage than AT&T, one of the reasons I didn't switch. If the coverage works for you, enjoy that new phone!

    I've had ATT. For a couple of years, am iPhone. Coverage was very good, especially data. I live in the Bay Area,.we get pretty good coverage from all four carriers.

    I live in Los Angeles and I get perfect coverage with AT&T.... except for when the Los Angeles Coliseum is packed with 90000+ fans.

    EDIT: I was in the stands with them.

    Generally, as long as I am in an urban area, that isn't abnormally packed, I will get good reception with AT&T. However if you are on a long road trip, going in areas that aren't densely populated, you will get no service at all.

    I also get poor reception at concerts, and other large events where people are densely packed together.

    Very tough call between focus S and lumia 800. Focus has bigger/better screen and more under the hood at 32gb of memory. The 800 is just damn sexy, but has smaller screen and half the memory.

    I'm leaning toward Focus S because I just dig my Focus.
    Make with the WP purchase already one time why dontcha for pete's sake. Honestly.....

    You didn't make a good case for the 800... lol ;)

    I'm itching for the Focus S... I need a new WP device, like yesterday!

    Yah, should of said VZW had better coverage for me. Too bad, ATT has an enviable selection of Windows Phones!

    Don't ever switch for hardware - when you lose coverage that shiny new phone isn't going to be much good. I travel A LOT and Verizon is the only carrier for me (nobody even comes in a close second). In my home town when I don't travel Verizon is the only one with good coverage. I'm not holding my breath for a new WP7 on Verizon and I blame MS for that, not Verizon (18 mos old hardware with the Trophy is not going to hack it!!!). It will be Android or iOS for my next phone (going to miss WebOS on my current phone - I think WP7 and WebOS currently have the same market share - not good for WP7).

    Why do you blame Microsoft for that? It is up to VZW to get new phones. It is pretty obvious both VZW and Sprint could care less about their customers, and also they are both getting paid off by Google. Also, I travel alot as well, and that is why I am switching from Sprint to AT&T, because you get very limited selection on both CDMA carriers for global roaming. Every single AT&T phone works around the world, I'd say that is better coverage than either VZW or Sprint.

    Eh. ATT's LTE is going to roll out pretty slowly. You have a much better shot at getting good 4G "lite" coverage over the next two years than you do proper LTE.

    I'm most likely going to get the Focus S now, and then once Nokia hits the US, sell the Focus S to get a Nokia device.

    Although now I'm going to have a tough decision to make on Sunday, now that the BB bold 9900 is being released along side the Focus S... Both incredible devices.

    I will leaving Sprint too. But i hate that there is no unlimited data plan available on at&t.
    Faster data speeds is a plus, and better wp selection is the huge plus.
    Tired of the android ****.

    Yes. AT&T has held it back and called for "hardware and software revisions" from RIM. Apparently they finally got what they wanted, and it will FINALLY be available for purchase on November 6th on AT&T. Pretty pathetic how long it took them and how many customers they lost to Verizon because of the delay.

    Well, a few things. It looks like Sprint is about to end unlimited data anyways. So I wouldn't stay on Sprint for that.

    And just my opninion, but I will buy on contract and just wait it out. Look at it this way, there is always going to be something new coming. Just think, in two years, you can get a Nokia with the higher resolution screen that spec that is coming, etc...

    Ohh, that explains why moms account said she was due for an upgrade about 1.5 years after getting her Focus. I was wondering about that.
