    If the iPhone became a must-have gadget, like the iPod did, AT&T's network would have quite a time dealing with all the internet bandwidth being used by iPhones. Fortunately for AT&T, Steve Jobs said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that the iPhone will use an available WiFi network for internet capability before using AT&T's "Edge". The iPhone is even programmed to use WiFi as a VoIP medium if AT&T service is not available, another innovation in the iPhone.

    Steve Jobs and AT&T talked a lot about the iPhone in a Wall Street Journal interview, if you're interested in this kind of stuff, please click here.

    Maybe this'll encourage companys to design a data transfer structure thats reliable no matter the user base, instead of the half assed things we have now.

    AT&T, one of the best cell carriers Ive ever used (its true) has said that they are working on rolling out the 3G network instead of relying on their edge network. Areas like Huntsville, AL and others around me, are still on the EDGE network, while Atlanta and Nashville (major major metropolitan cities) are on the 3G network, which is faster and more reliable.

    the iphone is actually pretty interesting, I just cant afford the $600 for it. I bet after a revision or two, it will be the awesomest phone out there.

    Nothing says, "I'm gonna take down AT&T's network" like owning an Apple product.

    Please refrain from blatant flaming of corporate entitys if theres nothing useful in the post. This is nothing but flamebait/trolling.

    Seeing as AT&T actually had overflow issues, it looks quite otherwise.
