While using Google today, I was curious to see how many websites I could find that told how much AT&T sucks. While I was at it, I went ahead and looked up a few other cell phone carriers. Just who is the suckiest of them all? See the results below!
Congratulations to our winner! Sprint is, according to Google search results, the suckiest cellular carrier! There are apparently over 1 million websites describing the suckiness of Sprint. Wowzers! AT&T comes in a very close second with over 829,000 results (must be all those "fewest dropped calls"..lol). And once again proving correct the plentious positive testimonials I've received their customers, Alltel is perhaps the least sucky cellular provider out there. You go Alltel! This definitely isn't a "head-to-head" competition I would be proud of winning.
What does the winner of this competition get? Well, nothing. We should give these companies' executives a big kick in the pants for being suck slackers. Instead we'll just provide gobs of links to Alltel for being the least sucky. Visit them at Alltel.com.

What is the deal with this recent AT&T advertising? AT&T is wireless. Nah, really? Good for you. The rest of us have been wireless for like 10 years or so. What a waste of advertising space. Just another example of a goofy slogan brought forth by the drunken executives at AT&T.

This isn't the only goofy slogan I've seen lately. Look for more soon to come, right here on my blog.
Cliff. Write stuff.

Well it appears that the infamous AT&T has goofed once again. And to think I was just saying in my last blog how they have sucky service! What a coincidence!
I just checked the mail, and my cellular bill from AT&T (previously Cingular) was a whopping $753.22! As soon as I had opened the envelope my heart started racing. Where in the world did these charges come from? My bill is usually between $40-$60 here lately, so I thought this was really weird.
As you can see in the image above, my bill shows (among the many other roaming calls that I allegedly made) that on 7/16/07 I made calls from the following areas:
in Jackson, MS at 8:15pm
in Atlanta, GA at 8:20pm
in Jackson, MS at 8:22pm
in Atlanta, GA at 8:25pm
in Jackson, MS at 9:06pm
in Atlanta, GA at 9:11pm
What amazing travelling I did huh?! According to my latest AT&T bill, I repeatedly travelled over 380 miles in under 5 minutes! I knew my Ol' Blue was a fast old 89' Ford Ranger, but that's really something!
I've obviously called AT&T and after keeping me on hold for over half an hour they seem just as confused as I am. They'll be calling me tomorrow after they've had some time to figure out how this happened. And yes, the lady assured me that they'll be refunding the additional $633 (plus tax, fees etc) they charged me for these bogus roaming minutes.
Well, I finally got to touch an iPhone this weekend. Jenny and I were running around town shopping and looking at various odds and ends, when I got the crazy idea to go by an AT&T store and see about handling an iPhone. Well what-d-ya-know, there's an AT&T store right there in front of us. How convenient.
Well let me say that the iPhone is very very cool. I'm not quite ready to trade in my Treo 650 for this phone yet as I would like to see them add some more features in it first. But it is very nice. Stop by a store and check one out. AT&T still has sucky service -- I haven't renounced that opinion. But the iPhone (an Apple product of course) rocks!
