Wondering which carrier you should buy your iPhone
on? There's a survey for that. ChangeWave Research
has released the results of a poll that hit 4,068 users distributed across Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Among those four, VZW came out ahead when it comes to dropped calls, with 1.4 percent of respondents indicating they'd received one in the past three months. AT&T, meanwhile, came in last with 4.6 percent. If you look only at the iPhone 4 users the numbers change a little, 1.8 percent vs. 4.8, but the conclusion stays the same. No, this conclusion sadly will not get you around your ETF, but maybe making a pouty face at the AT&T store will help.
: AT&T let us know it has some doubts about these results. We're not statisticians but we will, out of fairness, link over to this GWS survey
from last year that showed 98.59 percent success rate for non-dropped calls. How do your numbers compare?
