As a longtime critic of AT&T's service and their (mis)treatment of their customers in the USA, I often wonder/fantasize what life on our iPhones would be like without AT&T. Eventually, their exclusive contract with Apple will end. I heard a podcast that mentioned that one reason 25% of would-be iPhone customers will NOT buy an iPhone is because they do not want to do business with AT&T. However, when alternative carrier(s) are available in the USA, would the sudden migration away from AT&T overwhelm the new Phone wireless carrier's network? I am really, really hoping for a much better area of signal coverage and I especially would like to see dramatically better customer service than the sorry excuse for customer service that AT&T trots out as their "fig leaf" of justification for taking care of their customers. If you're in the USA and you have wondered about this, please share what your vision of life after AT&T looks like.
