 Anyone see AT&T's newest commercial with Owen Wilson?

Can someone explain to a non american how Verizon/CDMA 3G works? is it as fast as HSPA/HSDPA (GSM 3G and 3.5G)?

Nothing sucks worse than getting an iPhone and realizing those bastards at the AT&T store lied, and you can't get a 3G signal and everything you do is slow or drops.  I agree... Verizon should do a lighter color but say "Sucks Ass".  If AT&T didn't have the iPhone, they'd be hurting bad.

I have travelled all over this country, and I can say that anything outside of that blue 3G network does suck on the AT&T network... at least that has been my experience.

Verizon is just pissed off that they lost out on all the money they could be making off the Iphone, Acccording to some reports i have read apple did go to verizon but they want to control every feature of it. I love my Iphone and have no problems with AT&T's service. On the other hand my wife has verizon and she drops calls in the living room and has to move to another part of the house. If she wants to go on the internet$$$ If she wants to add Rintones$$$$ Music$$$$ Ect. With my Iphone i can make my own ringtones download ANY song i want for $0.00 Add as many games and apps as i want some cost but a lot are free. And there is no verizon logo plastered on it. And i have over  4000 rollover minutes in less than 4 months so no overage charges. EVER. My wife on the other hand has to have her calls forwarded to the land line in the house to save her calling minutes.

OK, let's try this - add a light color to the AT&T map showing the 2.5G coverage area, and in nice, big, bold lettering, say something like "LIGHTER COLORED AREA = SLOWER THAN 3G".  Wonder how quickly they'd bitch about that?  Just like the current ads, it would be accurate...stating and showing nothing more than what Verizon says it does.

I still fail to see how any reasonably intelligent person can draw the conclusion there's no coverage outside of the blue areas, when it's in nice, readable letters below the map that it shows "AT&T 3G Coverage Area".

Anybody got some cheese to give AT&T?  It'll go great with their whine.
