    In a few months the iPad is coming out. This would scare me if I buy a ATT compatible N1.

    You already have alot of complaints about ATT's 3g network just due to the iPhone use, I wonder whats going to happen if you add in a bunch of iPad 3g users as well... :eek:

    Seems like the safest thing to do is to wait for a verizon/sprint or stick with t-mo no? Let me know what you guys think.

    I think this was a really stupid thread to start. So everyone on ATT should leave because the iPad is coming and it's going to kill the network? You sound like an idiot.

    Hey dumbass, it was a question about which N1 to get/wait for.

    I didnt ask for some childish response from some idiot like you that gets all defensive about protecting the image of ATT. If you dont have a good response then leave the thread alone moron...

    You asked what folks think so I told you. Quit being so touchy....if you cannot have a thicker skin, maybe the internet is not for you...

    I'm sorry but the premise of your question was/is stupid

    I asked which N1 to get... I didnt ask what you opinion was of me or the thread.

    Since you don't seem to understand how the basic english system of a question and an answer for the question works, just leave the thread alone ****.

    Man, you're as touchy as my little sister.:D Don't wet your pants like she does tho!!:D

    And once more, your premise that the IPad will affect Nexus users is a stupid one. I;m sorry that hurts your feelings but it's the way it is...

    All I did was say you sounded like an idiot. Thank you for confirming!!:D

    Agreed. The biggest problem N1 AT&T people will experience is.. well.. AT&T. If AT&T didn't suck I'd have an iPhone already.

    When my iPhone was on ATT it was the worst. Dropped calls galore even with full bars. I finally fired them off the roof, unlocked the iPhone and went with T-Mobile. I miss having 3G but don't miss the dropped calls. The concern over whether the iPad is going to further damage an overtaxed network is a valid one, unless you don't need to make calls.

    IMO, you are wrong.

    There is nothing unique about the iPhone to cause issues for ATT. Thre problem is the numbers of new and current users coming to ATT for the iPhone that causes for issues.

    The ONLY way the iPad is going to have any effect on Nexus one users on ATT(lets not forget that was the premise of this thread) is if they sell AS MANY AN THEY DID of the iPHONES.

    I can promise you there will never be even close to the number of iPads on ATT as there are iPhones. Not even remotely.

    And you can quote me on that for future pwning. Hell the iPad cannot even make calls or multitask! How the heck is it going to clog ATT so bad Nexus users will feel it????:D It won't!:D

    You only think intelligent responses are those you want to hear.

    I'm sorry but you are both not only wrong, but badly so. I usually don't flat out tell someone they are wrong, but this is a unique case of idiocy or apparent bias against a network.

    I don't have issues with folks having legit issues with ATT or any other network, I have my own issues with ATT.

    But this thread is stupid and so was your question...either stupid or biased.

    Not really:D:D

    I've just been giving you a hard time man but you gotta admit there will never be enough iPads to hurt the network or Nexus users?

    I guess I could be wrong,... and every iPhone user is going to buy one... and carry it around with their iPhone and use it darn near as much as their iPhone?

    I just don't see it.

    Thanks for the hard time brotha :D

    Your probably right though. The $630 price tag for the 3g version might not sell as well as the $200 iPhone so probably not a big deal... just was a thought that crossed my mind.

    Exactly. Whether the iPad causes sufficient increase in traffic to further affect the ATT network is beyond my purview. That said, those of us with iPhones and very poor reception on the ATT Network can only wonder if another device with lots of web traffic will further clog the network.

    My apologies for being an ass about it. :eek:

    I hope you get a Nexus regardless of network. I think you'd really enjoy it and it would be nice to have you around the forum.

    Truth be told we have more to worry about regarding all the new Android phones getting ready to hit ATT than any iPads, imo.

    IMO, those have the potential to bring in enough new users to at least discuss the possibility it could cause problems. I still don't think it will. Hopefully ATT learned something from the iPhone but you never know I guess.

    it's a valid concern i think, i meen the iphone did crash their network, it's BARELY stabalized since then and another round of "3g onlyness devices" is going to suck it dry in my opinion. the price is HIGH, but i think there are enough mac boys out there to do SOME harm to the network

    refresh button much?

    The iPad is not going to do much for AT&T. It definitely will add more usage to the network, and it's barely capable now. If I were hopeful, I'd trust AT&T to be anticipating this and working to upgrade their network. Fortunately I don't need to be hopeful because I don't have a data plan anyway, and I can only to connect to 2G, which despite its slow speed is actually quite stable in my area, unlike the 3G network. You could see about switching to Sprint/Verizon, and it may turn out to be worthwhile, but their networks could start to bottleneck like AT&T's. Ideally they'd learn from AT&T, but we'll see.

    The N1 is a more capable web browser than the ipad. I would be more concerned on what all the new android devices will do to ATT's congested network more than the crippled ipad.
