    Specs:
    13' MBP - 2.53GHz C2D - 4Gb ddr3- 250Gb HD - OSX.6/ XP Pro (via boot camp)
    Question AT&T-less.....
    I just received my first apple notebook in the mail this week. I was a little nervous about switching as I've been an avid PC guy for the last 12 years, but after only 3 days I can see that the switch will be a permanent one! My new MBP is incredible!!!!

    My only dilemma is.... I've always had "windows-based" smartphones..... and with AT&T having crap for service way up in Maine, I'm curious as to what other people in my predicament have done.

    I have Verizon now.... which gives me a variety of choices....

    What else works well with the Apple platform??

    I've been looking into Android technology-

    Any thoughts????

    Do you know how T-Mobile coverage is in your area? You could always get an iPhone & unlock it, which would allow its use w/a T-Mo SIM card. If you're happy w/VZW - or that's your only/best choice - hopefully someone else can chime in. I have an iPhone on AT&T now, and have never had VZW so unfortunately I can't offer much help there.

    There might be..may be..possibly..an iPhone version headed to Verizon..but you didn't hear that from me..

    Android phones are quite nice and should interface fine with the Mac..

    The only other smartphone I would personally besides my (the) iPhone consider is a BlackBerry (had a Bold 9700 for a few weeks in January in between iPhones). 95% sure that RIM makes a native BlackBerry Desktop Connect package for Mac, and BlackBerries in general are known to work relatively well with Macs.

    Good luck!

    Looks like you can stick with Verizon and get yourself an Android based phone.

    Unlocking an iPhone and using it with T-Mobile sounds great until you see the price for an unlocked iPhone 3G.
