If you move, and it's that much of a bother, then change your wireless provider. It's still not their fault. They put maps on their site of where their coverage is. Still not their fault. Blaming a company for not having 3G in your area because you think they should is a stupid assumption and just proves you're missing a critical aspect in logic and reasoning.
And they advertise their coverage in general in 96% of America. Not 3G. You still get Edge where you live, I bet, which is actually competitive with Verizon's 3G speeds. They're not lying when they talk about their coverage, but for you to just assume that they have 3G in that 96% because they say that, just further proves you didn't do research before choosing.
Bolded for funny. I guess holding a company up to what they say they provide is teh herp derp. I gotta tell you, as consumers, we're becoming very, very accepting of this absolutely abhorrent behavior.
Anyway, you are taking this argument to the only place where you can possibly back your statements. Frankly, I think you're just stubbornly trying not to concede these points.
Nonetheless, it is not irrational to expect the service I pay for - an unlimited Data plan - to be provided for and actually function in a major metropolitan market. If Apple and AT&T collectively present a device with a streaming data network, as they have since 2006 or 2007 at this point, that device should work. It should not suffer extensive downtime of the 3G and EDGE networks, as frequently occurs in New York City, and in fact, is occurring right now, as my iphone won't pick up dick in terms of data and hasn't since 7 am this morning. When AT&T goes down, they go f**king down big. None of their **** works at all.
