    Lol I love the part where the lady with Motarola Droid in her hand asked where her cool phone is. Just shows how stupid AT&T customers are.

    kinda huh! like droid isn't good at multitasking, and is equivalent or better at web browsing depending on 3g locations. plus she says "where are the apps!" They are coming in hordes! just wait half a second haha

    Desperation smells like FAIL. This ad reeks of desperation.

    No apps, slow downloads, and no cool phones? And all this time I thought I was blown away by the droid. Then that girl showed me the way, with the infomercial style confusion, "what is this?" That, darlin, is a hardware keyboard. It's used to type things. And play games without having to use the touchscreen. But yea, luke wilson, you're right. Thanks for showing me the light.

    On a related note, verizon posted a loss versus att's profit in q4. Go figure. I guess marketing towards the below average intelligence consumer (see above ad) has its advantages.

    AT&T also activated 3.1 million iPhones last quarter as well as a mere 1 million "other phones"

    versizon added just as many customers but i think the acquasition of altell (which was an investment into there network) is still bringing there numbers down.

    If they keep spending their money on those ads, they won't have enough left for more towers!

    Apple is rubbing off on ATnT. market the snafoo out of something, make it shiny and have a name endorsing it, and that will hide its shortcomings enough to dupe you. haha hope you iPhoners feel like idiots, CAUSE YOU ARE.

    i wish VZW would fight firre with fire here. hire a real actor and dump out their flaws for all to see. yes yes, during the Super Bowl with all to see. it'd be great. buuuuuuuuuut with Big Red possibly getting the iPhone, i dont know if that would be in best interest

    I think my favorite is the lady with the Droid asking "What is this...?" as if she's never seen a keyboard before.

    The fact AT&T is trying to hard shows how threatened they are.

    Too bad you can't multitask on an iPhone. (For now you know the next one will have it) The only thing it can "multitask" is a phone call and data...but honestly if you're on WiFi you can do the same via Verizon. And when their 4G network is out you'll be able to do it all with that gen of phones

    Luke Wilson is a real actor... any one who can speak about how At&t is better than Verizon straight faced deserves an Academy Award

    Every time I see one of those commercials I get pissed because, yes there 3G is indeed faster BUT you have to be able to get service. Also the AT&T gods have to grant you the opportunity to have a 3G network, which no where within 200 miles of me has one.

    Like an election there will be those who make informed decisions--and the iPhone could be a better choice for some(one else)--and those who will do whatever the idiot box tells them to do. I personally would rather have Verizon spend their money on LTE than getting down and dirty with ATT.

    ATT's FUD campaign isn't going to backfire before Verizon gets the iPhone and nobody cares anymore. They've painted a picture for those who don't know better that Faster 3G + Good US Coverage + iPhone (3 separate commercials) = Good 3G coverage everywhere on the only cool phone in the world, and that Verizon=fail. It sucks, but the marketing bass-turds deserve props for well-concealed sleaziness.

    And what's ATT going to do when their iPhone exclusivity runs out?

    look at apples clients. people who buy without thinking too hard. the damage that this does (in my mind) is theyre EVERYWHERE! and this fuels people relying on stooooooooooooopid TV ads for information. "if luke says it"

    this has my brain fuming! how many people actually belong to these forums and do research and ask..........

    on the turn of the coin, how many people just whine to VZW CS that thier battery doesnt last when WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS are on and their display is on full brightness.

    dumbness is spreading!

    Good let them have their stupidphones and pay the consequences. We live in the age of information and "having everything available to you." Heck even geezers can read Consumer Reports ;P
