you know those Verizon commercials

where they have the map of the USA and its all red cuz Verizon’s coverage area is like allllll over the country, even the parts where no one lives?

then they show the map of AT&T. which looks like its missing a few thousand cities. it looks like an xray of a crackhead’s brain synapses – or whats left of them.

the other day i arrived from canada. i was in the los angeles international airport. i had just picked up my precious bag. young karisa told me to call her when i retrieved my bag and she would drive over from her beach community near the airport and pick my black ass up.

the photo to the right is what i saw on my phone when i tried to call her from LAX.

los angeles.


so tell me this, AT&T, the iphone, which somehow you are allowed to be the ONLY provider of phone service to, is the most popular cellphone in the country. how do you get off providing such lousy coverage that even inside the big huge airport in Los Angeles, a customer cant even make a phone call.

wouldnt you think that at such a place people would probably be using their cell phone more than in any place in town? and wouldnt most of the calls be like this, “im at American baggage claim, where you at?”

or am i the first person to wish to make such a call.

on an iphone

using AT&T

at LAX airport, in los angeles.

in two thousand and ten.

when you are AT&T, one of the largest providers of phone connections in the world, and have been for a really long time, and you refuse to ramp up your coverage to meet the demand of the hugely popular cellphone – some people would call that corporate greed.

i call it a call out to steve jobs.

bro, im gonna end my love affair with your phone if you cant apply some pressure on your bff, att.

thats my new years resolution.

  1. when i have not been getting service in places i expect to get service, i turn the phone off and then on and it works.  but i have verizon and a shitty phone so maybe that’s why.

  2. The iphone is what my corporation has armed its minions with. It’s pretty much a given at this point that on a conference call, 75% of us will drop off of the call at some point. It’s kind of become a joke. Also, if I find myself in rural Iowa, which I often do for work, I pretty much assume I have no ability to make or receive calls. AWESOME!
