    New ATT commercial mocks the MOTO DROID

    I dont get these commercials... now they claim that you cant talk and surf at the same time.. but you clearly can! They said you could get email and talk at the same time.. and you clearly can.. So what gives, is Verizon going to court again over this?

    update here is commercial:

    No the reason you can get email and talk is because it has already been downloaded to the phone. That's why you can view it while still on the phone. The thing is that if your using WiFi, you can still talk and surf at the same time. But already stated that most of AT&T can't do it either because they have such crappy 3g coverage. And for AT&T customers to be able to do it, they have to be on 3g.
    Resistance is futile.

    Then you are on Wifi. It's been discussed to death. Please believe me. There's an element of truth to the AT&T commercials.

    Yet another lame commercial... <meh> I've NEVER had the need to surf / download while talking to one of my friends / family / business contacts. Never. This is not a selling point--in the least.

    Yeah I thought that was a pretty dumb commercial myself. Even when I had an iphone i never ran into a need to use the net and call at the same time.

    There pretty much touting the ONLY thing they can over verizon and the droid. That's why they haven't had any other commercials other then we have service here. Well noone said you didn't have service there, just that you didn't have 3G service there, which is also a location you can't talk and surf lol.
    Resistance is futile.

    There have been a few times that I wish I could have surfed while on the phone. When using bluetooth I could look up information for someone that I was talking to. Rare occasion but I have had the need. However it is not worth the crappy coverage that you get from AT&T to be able to do that. JMO

    It's cold up here right now (WA State), and as me and a co-worker were headed out to lunch I said, "I wonder how cold it is outside--hang on--let me check."

    No sooner than I said that my friend whipped-out his iDrone and started looking up the weather. As we both headed into the elevator he dropped / lost connection. Needless to say, I laughed and laughed hard. I didn't have to say a word because he KNOWS AT&T's coverage sucks--even in a "hi-tech" area where we live and work.

    I told him how cold it was and he was able to confirm once he regained a signal (when we departed from the elevator).

    That's all they got? Kind of ironic when you think about it. There claims of superior network due to being able to talk and surf the web at the same time is the reason why GSM voice coverage is inferior to VZW voice coverage. CDMA seperates the two functions and can handle loads more calls per tower. Moreover CDMA is has the largest calling area in the US due to it being invented by Qualcomm an American based company. While the framework for CDMA all ready exsisted, GSM carriers, such as Tmobile or ATT had to build their GSM base stations from the ground up. In fact, Sprint and VZW will be rolling out "4G" soon, and VZW LTE system will be able to support 1080 HD streams among other high band with apps. GSM infrastructures are approx 1 1/2 behind at minimum.

    However, worldwide GSM is the standard; therefore, better for people who travel often. The primary reason, from what I have been told, from years of working in the telecom industry is that international carriers went with GSM to avoid paying royalties to Qualcomm for using their technology. CDMA is the more efficient of both technologies as it can handle > than 70 calls per channel per tower opposed to around 45 for GSM. Moreover, in the states CDMA has the largest coverage area and more advanced data network and is the best choice. For those who rely on non biased opinions Consumer Reports has rated VZW the number 1 carrier in the US for more than 3 yrs.

    In short, although I do like the Iphone, my personal preference is the Android OS. I will not by another phone with a different type of OS, at least until something better comes out, which I doubt will happen. I trust google, and they have the resources to grow this OS like no other company can. ATT can suck it.
