AT&T Releases Two More Anti-Verizon Ads -- Secret Switch and Share AT&T

The battle of TV attack ads between AT&T and Verizon continues on as AT&T has just released two more commercials taking aim at Big Red.

In the first commercial, named "Secret Switch", Luke Wilson is at a dinner party and he secretly switches the attendee's AT&T smartphones for Verizon devices. Once they realize they've been bamboozled by tricky Luke and are using "dumb phones" all hell seems to break lose. Notice the Motorola Droid highlighted when they mention "dumb phones"?

There's no mention of the iPhone specifically (Apple doesn't share screen time), but one diner does complain that all her apps are gone...

The other commercial is titled "Share AT&T" and this time Luke concentrates on educating the viewers about how AT&T provides a better overall 3G experience than Verizon. Some of the key points he touches on are the faster speeds for downloading songs and videos, and the ability to talk and surf at the same time, etc...

Check out the videos after the break, and let us know what you think about them!

AT&T "Sets the Record Straight" with 2 New Anti-Verizon Commercials

AT&T has just revealed two new commercials that again, take aim at Verizon. Did you really expect anything different? Both of these new ads star Luke Wilson just like the "Side by Side" commercial that debuted last week. As you can see above, "Two Phones" concentrates on the fact that you need two phones to talk and surf the Web at the same time unlike on the AT&T network. To be fair, AT&T left out the fact Verizon customers could actually use WiFi if the phone supported it. We're just saying...

The other commercial, "Postcards", highlights the fact that AT&T's network covers 97% of Americans. As much as I enjoy my AT&T service they failed to mention a decent amount of that coverage is EDGE only.

[Thanks for the tip Gregg!]

AT&T Fires Back at Verizon with "Side by Side" Commercial

AT&T has responded to Verizon's latest commercials that depicts their network as small and to put it nicely, garbage. As you can see above AT&T takes some shots of their own at Big Red.

This particular commercial is just one of a series that will begin airing tonight. AT&T not only mentions a few valid points but they even scored Luke Wilson to do the dissing. Bonus points...
