    Hey PPL! I have a BB Tour with Sprint(BOOO) Ive had it replaced about 4 or 5 times & the reception from my Tour(Not my Sprint service.... I had perfect service with my curve). I was missing calls, calls dropping, phone restarting, just not satisfied with it anymore. Plus Sprint's Customer Service is a joke! So..... Im going to AT&T & getting a IPhone 3GS! Is there anything I should know? Whether it be problems with AT&T or the IPhone 3GS!!

    Thanks in advance!!

    Good choice but I'd recommend waiting until at least summer before you switch. Supposedly, a 4th generation iPhone is supposed to release and it might even go onto another carrier besides AT&T.

    The odds of any carrier besides ATT is rumor at best right now, but that has been the same thing for years lol

    The only rumor I've heard that i might even believe is ... yes other carriers are getting the iPhone BUT it would be the 3GS and ATT still gets the new one ...

    But until it's announced it's anyone's guess... BUT it will drop in Sept of this year the new iPhone

    True but there has been major publicity about this rumor in the recent weeks and this is the year AT&T's contract ends with Apple. I think Apple knows they'd dominate the smartphone market if they invested in CDMA iPhones, even if LTE is right around the corner. I think we'll be seeing a Verizon iPhone later this year (maybe in the summer).

    Don't believe the AT&T reps. They're all idiots. Wait until WWDC in June when they announce the iPhone 4G. New iPhones are always kept secret until WWDC which takes place in June.

    AT&T reps are going to want to move what they have in the store. They gain nothing from any of us waiting until July or whenever to by the new iPhone.

    That said, you could get the 3GS now, sell it on Ebay, and make just about enough to cover the cost of the ETF and a new phone.

    Service in FL is great, you'll do fine there. There is VERY strong evidence that a new iPhone will be out this summer. Apple and AT&T cannot and will not make any kind of official comment on this, so don't trust that.

    I have a 3G, and I love it. The apps, the browser, the UI, nothing beats it. The 3GS just makes everything faster, thus better The battery life isn't near what you've come to expect from Blackberries, going a full day on a 3GS is pretty normal depending on usage. Get a car charger. Get a screen protector, either BodyGuardz or Zagg. I like the BodyGuardz a little better because they're easier to install IMO. Get a case, you'll need it.

    You're gonna like it. I work for AT&T btw.

    This is what I'm doing. Got my 3GS by trading my 9700 and will sell it in the summer to get the 4G if it's good.

    You'll LOVE it! It will seem like a race car compared to the Tour. I say if you want the iPhone, get the iPhone. When the new one comes out this summer, decide if you want it and then sell the GS if need be.
    You will be wishing you had done this sooner

    Well the iPhone has worked phenomenal for me personally. Has a fast browser plenty of Applications for all your needs. The User Interface is simple and nice. Also the build of the phone is very sexy and pocketable. At&t's service all depends on your primary location. Here in washington DC there service is great for me, so the iPhone was a good choice. Make sure you check out At&t's coverage in your area. Good coverage with an iPhone equals a joy to have you won't regret it.

    Well Apple releases a new phone every June/July, and they have reserved a conference room on June 22, which should be the new phone announcement.

    If you can hang in there 2 months the hardware may be greatly upgraded from the 3GS. It all depends if you care about specs though.

    Not really.... I really don't wanna spend another moment on with my Tour! I hardly ever get a phone as soon as it comes out! I like to wait at least 6 months. That way all the kinks & bugs have been worked out!
