    I watch the Sat morning finance shows on FOX news. One of the shows (the
    cost of freedom, Bulls & Bears or one of them), was talking about wireless
    stocks. One analyst said that he had just ended his "abusive" relationship
    with ATT Wireless and actually said that "their service sucks so bad." He
    said he switched to Verizon. I was surprised that he said that on a
    national cable program, but he must have been really annoyed with ATT. He
    also said that ATT offered him $150 to stay as a customer and sign up for 2
    more years - he said no way. The two companies that got positive reviews
    (from an investor point of view) were Verizon and Nextel. They said that
    Sprint was too small and had an unstable parent company - also said that the
    coverage was too small. They said that Nextel was making money and although
    Verizon had $30 billion in debt, they had the best service and would gain
    from number portability. Didn't even mention Stinkular or T-imobile.

    That annalist is ignorant in making those statements unless
    he gives an idea of where he is talking about.
    Someone that makes blanket statements on a national
    TV show like that, because his local experience, needs fired.

    That is my opinion, nothing more nothing less.

    Why would it matter where he's located?
    No one should ever be annoyed with a company's service.
    Even a poll made by AT&T said their CS sucks donkey's ass.

    I ported my service to a different provider and while the number was ported
    not AT&T still says that I still have service with them with the same number
    and that they're going to send me the bill for usage up to Friday plus
    cancellation fee because I was still under contract. I know my contract
    ended Nov. 15th and the phone number ported completely on Tuesday, and they
    don't even see that in their system. What gives? What a bunch of
    nincompoop!!!

    Those who have not had problem with AT&T has either just been lucky or work
    for them in some way. Wait and see. Mark my words.

    It's no better with VZW. I constantly have trouble withtheir billing and
    them trying to slip one by me etc. The only company I've ever done business
    with (wireless) that didn't pull that crap was US Cellular. If I ddin't need
    service in MN they'd be first choice. VZ just frustrates the s%^t out of me.

    I had U.S. sell-u-up-the-river.
    to cancel service we had to give 30 days written notice even though we
    didn't a contract anymore, and due to the notice getting to them a
    little late , because we had to send it after being told we did, we got
    hit another partial mo. charge, bunch of B.S. the reception was lousy as
    well, couldn't keep connected even within our home area.
    So far Sprint is much, much better.

    FOX will probably give him a promotion. It's just the way News Corp,
    Disney, Viacom, and GE are.

    Re: FOX News Trashed ATT Wireless

    I know of people who have had billing nightmares with nearly all the
    carriers. (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile)

    I'm convinced that the level of service between them isn't all that
    great other than the awful "Claire" IVR system that Sprint uses. And
    that Sprint makes it so difficult to actually speak to a human being.

    So I pick carriers based on coverage and price, but primarily
    coverage.

    Right now I am in North Dakota. Verizon Wireless sucks here, so I can
    safely assume that Verizon has TERRIBLE SERVICE all over the United
    States, right? Nextel has limited service here, but is expanding via
    their roaming partner Extend America. Sprint PCS coverage is also very
    limited. Cingular and AT&T have no native coverage in North Dakota, so
    I can safely assume that they have no native coverage in the United
    States, right?

    I think I made my point. A wireless network is not equal throughout the
    nation. There was a three way tie for #1 by JD Power and Associates,
    and Verizon was not there (Nextel, Cingular, T-Mobile).

    > No one should ever be annoyed with a company's service.


    True. But it's never going to happen.

    > Even a poll made by AT&T said their CS sucks donkey's ass.


    Really, they released a report about themselves and claimed that "we
    suck donkey's ass"? Where was this published?

    Congratulations. You, being a resident of a select area, have the
    freedom to port your number. You know, AT&T has GREAT coverage in parts
    on Minnesota...why would you want to switch?

    Like I say, AT&T has some GREAT Coverage in Minnesota.

    What part of Minnesota? I have Cingular (Preferred Nation TDMA and
    Cingular Nation) plans and I have great coverage in Minnesota. I have
    not had a problem with their customer service, either. I called to have
    wireless insurance removed, and when it was still on my bill, they
    immediately gave me a credit, along with a credit for roaming in a home
    airtime rate area.

    If you live in the MSP area, Cingular Nation is great. With a T62u, you
    can roam on T-Mobile (GSM), AT&T (¿GSM and TDMA? and AMPS), and Verizon
    Wireless (AMPS). Coverage cannot be beat with that phone.

    That's the problem with the media in the United States. They don't care
    what is heard, as long as they make money off it. ALL national news
    networks (with the exclusion of NewsWorld International) are owned by
    [for profit] corporation.
