And not being able to do anything else (like look at an email) while on a call sucks!

I knew when I saw it that Baxter is not 60 miles from Fargo. It is 134 miles. Why use Fargo as a reference. How about Brainard?

"FARGO, N.D.— Previously excluded from the iPhone club because of ATT's at-best spotty coverage, cell-phone users in rural Minnesota, the Dakotas, Montana, Nebraska and Wyoming now can get the phone through the nation's largest wireless carrier......."
I wonder if these folks stumbling all over themselves to get an iPhone from Verizon realize that shortly they're going to be back to AT&T wireless. A very large portion of rural Minnesota, the Dakotas, Montana, Nebraska and Wyoming have been sold to AT&T by Verizon. I received (and still do every time I access my Verizon account) a pop-up window stating that I was being forced onto AT&T's network, due to Verizon's divestiture of a large part of its holdings by the FCC. According to the information I received, I should've been on AT&T's network by now but it hasn't happened (fortunately). http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-10237679-94.... . Supposedly AT&T is converting its bought properties to function on its network so will these iPhones actually be functional when all this takes place? I have a perfectly good Samsung alias 2 that is being replaced by AT&T because of the transition. So right now I would not be in a rush, in our area, to be buying any kind of Verizon phone, at least until the handover is done with AT&T.
