    I live in the Indy area, but went "home" to rural SW Wisconsin for Thanksgiving. This was my first "road trip" with Droid...

    It worked fabulously. The GPS feature was kick-butt (I certainly didn't need it for directions, but used it for grins anyway).

    The best part: When my iPhone-using brother kept asking to use my Droid because he needed internet and AT&T had no data service available in that location. :icon_ nana:

    iPhone vs. Droid: Droid hands-down in that location!

    Very cool. That is definitely the case in my home town too, which is in rural PA

    Wait... Wait... We need an actual address of that location... And check the AT&T Coverage map. Cause you know what AT&T says, "We cover here... There... We don't have coverage problems."

    Yay, you! That is the case right here where I live now, in VA. I'm from MN and can't wait to go home to show off the new unit.

    I live in SW Wisconsin and gave up the iPhone because of lousy coverage. I walked from my 2 year commitment after 3 months and AT&T let me out because they admitted they didn't have coverage where I live.

    VZW has been much better (though not perfect) as far as coverage goes.

    He is not lying...he is saying that AT&T has Coverage...Not that they have any 3G service there....heck he is not even saying they have Wireless service there. So maybe they only have a Pay phone in some of those towns..lol

    You will note, however, that he says 'coverage'. Didn't say what kind of coverage and the places he listed off are also generalized. Listing off cities they have coverage. When you look at the map he is standing on, it is also dual colored, only orange and white. So he wasn't lying about the coverage, but he wasn't being very clear on what kind of coverage and only debating the map that Verizon was showing.

    Verizon's AT&T map is not indicative of the coverage map they show on AT&T website. And looking on the AT&T website, the closest it looks like is for Mobile TV, but according to AT&T their 3G network coverage is the same as their voice. so at this time, AT&T is trying to point out the whole map business is not 100% accurate.
