So since the new iPhone came out I've been planning on switching to AT&T in November with my contract with TMobile ending. When the first iPhone came out I really didn't care about it, but for whatever reason I've been really wanting the new one.
However, in a few weeks the new G1 will be released in the US, and you can only get this phone if you have TMobile. I'm sort of torn. I know there's a lot of TMobile haters out there, but for the four years they've been my provider I've had nothing but great service, good prices for plans, and friendly and helpful customer service reps. I really have no desire to switch providers.
It seems like this G1 will really hold its own next to the iPhone. One thing I like about it is there's a keyboard. I hate trying to type on the iPhone's touch screen. I text and email a LOT, so it's pretty important to me to be able to maneuver quickly on my phone.
I'm not really crazy, however, about committing another two years to TMobile. While, yes, I love them, I just hate the thought of being locked in to two years of anything. If I switch to AT&T do I have to sign a two year contract or one? Anyone know?
I also like the thought of having the iPhone and not having to carry around my iPod in addition to a phone.
I'm a little nervous to go with the G1, as it is totally new, and what if it totally flops? But part of me is also intrigued because I have a chance to be one of the first to get an awesome phone.
Thoughts? And if your ideas are tainted due to hating TMobile, that's not super helpful.
Oh yeah, and, the G1 doesn't look as cool, I know.
