I switched from Verizon to Cingular last week, and as much as Cingular wants people to believe their network has the fewest dropped calls, I am very disappointed so far. I have had 2 dropped calls in the last week in places where Verizon never dropped the call. In fact, Verizon never once dropped a call in San Francisco for the year or so that I was with them.

Next week Cingular is supposed to be re-branded as AT&T. I hope they do something to improve coverage, especially with the surge of subscribers they will likely get when the iPhone rolls out. In fact, hopefully Apple can apply some pressure to improve things. It could be a PR nightmare for Apple if people switch from a stable network like Verizon, pay a cancellation fee, drop $600 on an iPhone, and get spotty service at best.
