Would you switch to this iPhone service?

Asked by livingchoice (553points) September 15th, 2010

Let’s say I could offer you an Unlimited Talk, Text and Data iPhone service for $60/month that ranges from 2G to 3G depending upon your location. Would you be willing to switch from your current provider to my service?

For one, I’d have to buy an iPhone. Eff that. For two, I use a prepaid phone service that gives me everything I need for $30. If I need more than 1000 minutes a month (which I’ve never come CLOSE to using), $45 gives me completely unlimited use. I’m on Verizon towers, so AT&T can take their dead zones and shove ‘em.

My answer is no.

The plan sounds great but in my opinion, there is nothing special about the iphone. The samsung galaxy s series phones are technologically superior devices.

Good luck with that. Apple would never let that happen. I’d switch to get a cheaper plan, even though my rate is very good.

What @Seek_Kolinahr said, exactly. Except for the part about the pre-paid plan. But I am on Verizon, and AT&T can shove their dead zones and their iPhones.

People get way too worked up over electronic devices.

Verizon has terrible dead zones around here. AT&T has almost none. I’d switch in a second, though. I use my phone for work, play, and everything else. I have friends with Duh-roids, friends with Galaxies. I would not use one of any of them for anything other than a door stop.

@EVERYONE – Ok so let’s make this interesting and YES I am talking about an actual service that exists. This service does not come from AT&T or Verizon. It’s an upcoming Communications company like MetroPCS here in NY. And this service is a prepaid service. No Contracts. What would you say to that?

I’d still have to buy the iPhone. For that money (minimum $499, sayeth Apple website), I can get a whole computer and still afford my $30 prepaid phone.

I don’t want an iPhone, nor do I live in NYC.
