Apparently the writers of V have never used an iPhone in NYC
AT&T is just plan awful in parts of NYC, but yet Tyler, from the ABC show V, managed to get reception on his iPhone high above NYC in a gigantic spaceship. How is that possible when I know for a fact that the iPhone is basically useless in most parts of the city? Rubbish. 

Maybe, just maybe, we’ll find out in a later episode that each V spaceship is actually part of an evil AT&T plan, but a side effect is that each ship actually improves cellular reception. Most iPhone owners would probably welcome alien overlords if they could actually use their phones around New York, San Fran, LA, Boston, and the rest of the major US cities.

Yes, I know this is one week behind as the episode aired last week. But I just watched it last night. Somehow I got one week behind.
