Why unlock and use on ATT

I came form ATT had drop calls data network (3 g) is a joke nearly no connection at all

From my personal experience Verizon exceeds ATT in coverage and 3G

You probably live in an area where 3G coverage is not dominant. I know because while I was down in N.C., I was completely under Edge coverage whereas I'm usually covered by 3G (In the Tri State area).

NJBlackberry, I don't think the Bold will work for Verizon, since verizon is a CDMA carrier primarily. Or can it? I haven't visited the forums in a while and need to be brought back to speed with things.

Yes, you will need a Verizon SIMMS card from the 7750 model though.

I highly doubt this is the ONLY reason people would unlock a phone to use on their network. There could be a lot of reasons, up to and including; better coverage or wanting a touchscreen BlackBerry but already being locked into an AT&T contract, among other things. Everyone's needs are different.
