Oh not 30 days Verizon shortened their limit to 14 days.
Bstards. Well I can figure it out in 14 days. We'll see. Pretty furstrating with the lousy service at my house. Just a bad area for almsot all cell networks.

Because I've been with AT&T for years, and I like the ability to use voice and data at the same time.
Gotcha, was just wondering, guess we all have our trade offs huh. I'm lucky enough to never have service issues, my jobs have always had corporate discounts w/AT&T so I won't switch.

When the next model of the iPhone is released I think I'll get a Verizon model and test it for 30 days. If I can hold calls in my house I may switch to Verizon.
I had bad coverage at my house, then I got a network extender which really does work.

OK, thanks. I was a bit confused. I'm used to ATT where you can just turn off 3G and use EDGE.
Verizon does have an EDGE equivalent. You are always connected to it--it is 1xRTT. It is the voice/text network and data does work over it. You cannot manually switch to it, but you can see it pop up every once in a while when the 3G symbol goes away and a "o" appears in its place.
