    Just because they work great for you doesn't mean they are great for everyone. AT&T does have poor ratings. No carrier is perfect. I like Verizon but I know they don't have good coverage everywhere.

    Verizon needs CDMA Windows Phones, is that not correct? All these phones coming out are GSM phones. I think that's why you can't just "buy an unlocked phone and be done with it". But my understanding is that at least Nokia will release one or more CDMA WP7 phones. Then maybe Verizon will have a new one. I'm really counting on Nokia World for some revelations here. I do like the Verizon network, but I already responded to their e-mail thanking me for sticking with them that I won't be much longer if they don't show WP7 some love!

    Sprint, like possibly Verizon, won't activate a phone that wasn't branded from the factory. Probably more control than some of our fellow GSM customers would care for but at least I know that my stolen phone can't ever be activated by the thief once I report it stolen.

    At least with CDMA, it doesn't matter what network you're subscribed to for the most part. While I never have signal issues with Sprint here, when I travel and end up in a Verizon-only area I just roam on it. It's free anyways.

    I don't have any friends that use 4G. Few of them in the bigger cities have the service but they say it kills the battery so quickly when it's on that it isn't worth it.

    I feel bad for people on AT&T seeing as it's consistently the worst rated network overall, but they do have the best WP7 selection currently.
    Its all about the coverage and I have never had issues with coverage with ATT in my area and customer service no gripes either. Maybe in other areas like NYC i see people complaining but not in my area of west central Arkansas and NorthWest Arkansas.

    For myself I dont like Sprint and GTMo is only recently come into the area and VZN well their stock is a good one to own but I dont like them (personal reasons) service wise here ther're all decent to very good.

    I am wondering if that is holding true now with CDMA carriers like Cricket? They'll flash any CDMA phone to work on their network.

    4.3?! Holy ****, why not just get a tablet?! That's H E double hockey sticks... just fyi

    I think for a phone 3.6-3.8 is about the biggest I'd ever want. I want a phone to fit in my pocket. To me, the Arrive at 3.6 is just about right. Big enough screen to be usable, but not so big that it doesn't fit well in the pocket. Even with the extra girth from the slide-out keyboard it's still pocket friendly. Don't get me wrong, if they stretched the border of the existing screen and wedged a 3.8" in there I'd be more than happy but making it physically bigger would kill it for me.
    Its like 2 mm wider than the focus not really that much wider at all.

    It still remains to be seen what Nokia will come up with at the end of this month. The other carriers may yet end up with some sweet Windows Phones.

    Yeh, MS is screwing istself by not offering more CDMA phones for Verizon and Sprint. Verizon is the #1 carrier and as a whole CDMA users in the US outnumber GSM users easily. I brought my son a droid not because that's what he wanted, but because for a 10 yr old buying a $200 phone made no sense. So I brought him a $20 droid. How many other people are doing this and not just for their kids, but for themselves. I understand worldwide GSM users outnumber CDMA users, but MS is killing itself by not offering more CDMA phones in the US. My older son wants a WP7 phone because he is big into the XBOX and only wants it because of its XBOX Live capabilities. A lot of these young kids who are into games will go to WP7 because of this, if MS provides the phones.

    If I did not dislike the Droid so much I would have brought one. I just can't stand how much it reminds me of an I-phone, its a knockoff, and I know I would hate the darn thing because of that. The I-phone and Droid are just like the old palm UI, they just have a black background or a custom picture instead of a white background. Think about it give the old palm UI a black background or a custom pic in the background and voila you have an I-phone. Innovation my Arse, its a palm knockoff. Oh, I forgot they made the screen flip 90 degrees. WOW!!! Now that's innovation. Its to bad palm had no vision, because if they did they would be were Apple is today.

    I really wish Verizon and Sprint users wanting a bigger WP selection would band together as show Verizon and Sprint that there's demand for it because, at this point, I'm pretty sure it's their fault for the lack of selection, not MS or any of the OEMs. MS did their job by supporting CDMA already and I doubt OEMs make phones hoping for a chance that a carrier might want it, so all that's left is the carriers. And, even though it's their fault for the lower sales numbers (by not providing enough selection), that's all the dummy big wigs get to see because not a lot of wheels get squeaky to them about it.

    Since 2005, I've been on all 4 major carriers.

    I'm on AT&T now and have had absolutely no issues or complaints and have found customer service to be very responsive.

    Sprint was by far and away the worst carrier experience I had. Replacing a broken phone with another broken refurb and then ANOTHER broken refurb, billing issues, you name it.

    I'll probably stick with AT&T for a while, as I find Verizon to be lacking in the phone selection department (and I'm obviously not a Droid kind of guy)

    Same here (well, I've been on three of the four majors anyway), and I often wonder at people slamming AT&T. All of my own experiences with them from in-store to customer service have always been very positive and I have not intention of ever leaving them for the time being. I live in one of the more rural areas in East Texas and my reception never drops any lower than 3 bars in the house as opposed to my friends here on Verizon and have to keep a land line in their home due to poor to no reception. I know the service areas and reception are all up to where you live, but still, I would think the overall customer service experience would be pretty universal. Or maybe I've just been lucky. Who knows?
