There's a MAP for that lawsuit

Anyone else think this is lame of AT&T to sue verizon? I thought the commercial was hilarious and great marketing. It was dumb of AT&T I think because of all the neg press they will get from it.

Map for that Commercial

well what do you expect? im sure at&t had some pressure from crapple to sue. the ad brings up a great point though, at&ts 3g sucks balls. i work on coranado island (a few hundred yards from san diego downtown) and all the iphone users get stuck with edge.

lol exactly..

I think thats why sprint ( outside of the stupid instinct vs iphone ) never have really attacked other carriers. more less stay on the sidelines. and let the others duke it out...

Its like verizon finally got creative,, and now att thinks uh oh.. and starts crying that they are being picked on.lol

Re: There's a MAP for that lawsuit

Yeah, another dumb lawsuit, what else is new? You're right, all AT&T will win from this lawsuit is negative press.

Re: There's a MAP for that lawsuit

lol, this reminds of when apple decided they wanted to sue over the "laptop hunters" ads. It's funny because all the Mac ads I've seen never say anything about features or hardware or anything. It basically says "buy a mac, its better". Very hypocritical in my opinion.

Re: There's a MAP for that lawsuit

If the maps are accurate then I don't see a FTW via ATT.
This would be based on public knowledge.

Now egg on the face for ATT?
Sure, but they deserve it by monopolizing the iphone on their crappy network.

Re: There's a MAP for that lawsuit

I believe the lawsuit was focused on the impression the maps would give consumers.

AT&T was upset because the map didn't accurately depict the entire network's coverage, rather only 3g areas.

Re: There's a MAP for that lawsuit

it stews down to this: according to at&t they have 3g coverage everywhere. we all know its a load of bull but they can make that claim because 3g is a very ill defined term (some digital communications officianados still consider evdo and hspa to be 2.5 or 2.75g and not true 3g). Because 3g is so horribly defined at&t feels they can brand their edge connection 3g and get away with it. making the verizon commercials false advertisement.

i see one good thing that COULD come from this law suit: some actual criteria for the diffferent cellular commucations.
