    I’ve tried various networks in Chi-town and I’ve had no problems with ATT and various problems with Verizon. The Nexus one being unlocked is pointless to me being in the US market since it doesn’t support #G on AT&T and not even Verizon. not sure how much of an upper hand that really is if you can’t stay on your network of choice and use the phone as it’s meant to be used.

    Don’t get me wrong, I want an N1 sounds great and I’ve been wanting an Android, but unfortunately I’m stuck. It would have been impressive and it would have put a bigger dent into the iphone marketshare if the N1 supported AT&T’s 3G network.
