    "On AT&T you can talk and surf the web at the same time. Provided you're using your phone between the designated 1 hour window you've been given each day to use data!" Enjoy the fastest 3g around!

    Wow, that's incredible.

    It would be a great way for Verizon to go for the throat in their advertising campaign, but it also worries me that something similar is in the works across the board if at&t came out and acknowledged it publicly.

    AT&T is eventually going to force customers to use less bandwith. They use the term incentive, but they probably mean astronomical surcharges, at the least and god knows what else.

    I don't think an incentive like that will work well. Ouch!

    SF and NYC are the only cities that have 3G coverage aren't they? I can see how this could be hard on their network :tongue:

    I think after Steve Jobs lowers his trousers and they go to town on him, AT&T will retain their right to be the exclusive carrier for the iPhone and it will be business as usual. I don't see Verizon picking them up to be honest. For one, I doubt Apple is going to budge in terms of control, and secondly, given their sales numbers, they can very well stay where they are and sail for a few more years. It's not like the die hard Apple fans are going to leave. I'll be happy as there'll be less stress on the Verizon network and even more opportunity for Android to expand.

    Verizon is not going to hop into the same bed with Apple. They are dealing with Google. The lines in the sand are clearly defined.
