Survey Thursday – Wireless Carrier?

by World Wide Ed on Thursday, May 7, 2009

* Which wireless carrier do you use for your mobile phone service and why?

Recently, I read somewhere that the BlackBerry Curve outsold the iPhone. Kinda surprising to hear, but then again, not really. Even though it may seem that errryone and their momma has an iPhone, the Blackberry line of products have the luxury of not being tied to a single wireless carrier (like the iPhone).

And I know it stems from some kind of early, boardroom contract-winning loyalty thang, but why Apple doesn’t open up their iPhone product to ALL the wireless carriers once the contract is fulfilled is beyond me. They are shooting themselves in the foot by just sticking with AT&T. But I digress…

Getting back to the topic, I’m with Verizon Wireless. In my personal experience, they have the best network, both here in Hawaii (all major islands), as well as during my travels. Aside from that periodic dropped call coming down Red Hill (east bound), I’ve never had a problem with coverage and am routinely the only guy whose phone has bars when in remote locations. And although their phone selection could use some work, the main thing to me is that I can make calls and surf the Interwebs.

K, before you think I’m a Verizon employee in hiding, I’ll end it there. Who you use cuz?
