Tell AT&T Where Coverage is Poor

AT&T has a new iPhone app to report how bad their coverage is, Mark the Spot. It’s nice to see that they want to know where trouble spots are but it’s also bad that you have create an app to report issues like this. You can tell AT&T things like dropped call and failed call. The thing that gets me is the no coverage option. How are you supposed to submit no coverage if you don’t have coverage? Instead of throwing money into fighting Verizon ads and making iPhone apps they should probably just create a better network.

I’m confused by AT&T’s current advertising mission as well. Verizon advertises that they have more 3G coverage than AT&T. AT&T counters with ads that talk about where they have cellular service. Verizon never said that AT&T didn’t cellular service in a lot of places, they were talking about 3G, which I don’t have/use, but I’m still acutely aware of the difference.

The AT&T ads are even more stupid because he sits there throwing those post cards and rattling off cities and I’m supposed to be impressed that AT&T has cellular service in remote places like, oh, Chicago, Philadelphia, Denver, and New York. That’s some comprehensive coverage!
