    just saw an ATT commercial Starring the of so beloved luke wilson featuring the droid. A guy is seen on the back with two droids trying to stay on the phone and surf the web at the same time.. hahaha.. okay... completely irrelevant. It starts off by him saying well you can talk and surf the web at the same time.. but that would require two phones.. and the guy in the back is struggling trying to use both phones.. hah... these ATT commercial are like.. i mean well composed.. but the content is so irrelevant and not accurate that it kinda cancells out all the budget

    Haha, that's a fairly old commercial now and we've discussed it a few times in other AT&T related threads. It's funny that they advertise that way when only about two cities in the country can do that, SF and NY.

    Old news, but the commercial kinda ignores the fact that the guy is in his home and would (presumably) have a WiFi network enabling him to do exactly what ATT claims he can't :icon_rolleyes:

    Yea that is a funny commercial but it is pretty old and someone on here postefd about this a while back. I just yesterday saw two of those advertising trucks that are like billboards driving, the one in front said you can lead with at&t and the second truck said or follow with verizon. I thought it was hilarious, at&t is losing their minds.

    i guess having never had a smartphone before droid im not too experienced but how often does anyone really feel the need to use a data connection while on the phone? i dont see how this is really a big issue at all.

    My daughter has AT&T and a IPhone , I asked her to do a test , she said she would but had no 3g , but I did , so I guess not a fair test . :icon_eek:
    Where we live AT&T does not have 3G , but Verizon has for years . :)
    Caulk one up for Verizon . :)

    also like to mention that i'm pretty sure even when att does have 3g available, it still isn't as fast as verizons 3g Network.. also sidenotei love how this thread has only been up for 15 minutes and already this many responses.. lol

    Have to be honest, iphone 3gs on the att is pretty fast. I was able to load up any site or app just as fast as i could the droid. The key was being in a strong 3g area. Outside the strong 3g area the phone does not load as fast, but that is the same for any smartphone using 3g. Verizon has a broader 3g market.

    The sad thing is I used to love Luke Wilson and now when I hear his voice, all I think about is his false advertisements about Verizon/ATT. I'm not a biased droid user, I find the iphone to be a great phone, the service is lacking in my area for sure, but the phone itself is well made. I think the commercials if anything, do harm to ATT and are detrimental to Luke Wilson's career.
