I was wondering if any of you know if this "AT&T" exclusive phone will eventually be available at other carriers? I went to AT&T and the store rep (who was absolutely 100% better than any customer service I have received from Verizon) recommended that I not go with AT&T because the coverage where I live is "marginal". He said the phones will probably not have service while in the house. He mentioned that we can use a booster going through the internet, BUT, the main reason we have cell phones is so that if our phones go down from Time Warner we have a backup (wife works from home and needs to have telephone service).
I'm very impressed with the 1020 and really would like to get this, but with only a single carrier, and a carrier that does NOT work well in my area, it's very disappointing.
