Default i need help deciding

Please Login to Remove!

I just found out that verizon added a tower near my house which is the only reason I switched to att. I have an iphone but am tempted to get a verizon pearl because the network is better. I am drawn to the iphone for the fun factor but it does keep dropping calls. Should I switch? Are you guys happy with your verizon pearls. I guess function before fun but I'm a gadget nerd. Any imput is helpful.

I agree, coverage first. What use is it if you can't even get a signal?

I know a couple people that have gotten rid of the Iphone because of so many dropped calls that were too important.

They all switched to vzw and got the pearl. I have to say that the pearl is probably one of the most well rounded devices out there.

Bad coverage makes me want to cry.
