WHAT HAPPENS TO AT&T WHEN THE IPHONE IS ON OTHER CARRIERS

iF YOU HAVE AN IPHONE ON ATT THET TREAT YOU LIKE GODS AND KINGS. I UNDERSTAND AT&T IS A BUSINESS, BUT THEY SHOULD ALSO LOOK OUT FOR THE CUSTOMERS DEMANDS. THEY TOOK AWAY THE UNLIMTED DATA PLAN WHICH CAUSED ALOT OF PEOPLE TO LEAVE. SINCE YOU HAVE THIS DEAL WITH APPLE YOU HAVE NOT SUPPLIED ANY HIHG END ANDROID DEVICES WHICH IS ANOTHER THING THAT IS NOT RIGHT. HANDS DOWN ANDROID IS BETTER THAN THE IPHONE AND EVERYONE KNOWS BUT AT&T. sO WHEN THE IPHONE DOES GO TO VERIZON AND IT IS HAPPENING THEN I HOPE ATT AS A COMPANY GOES UNDER. WINDOWS MOBILE IS OLD AND OUT DATED

One of two things will happen when AT&T loses the iPhone:

 

1. Their phone selection improves out of necessity. 

 

2. They go out of business.

 

Either way I'd be thrilled.


 

ATT had plenty of business before the iPhone.  What makes you think it will be any different without?

 

Number 1 is very probable.  Number 2 is so improbably, its pretty funny you even typed it.


Thought I should join in and share a laugh about this, too... Smiley Wink

 

AT&T - Going out of business. With over 87 MILLION customers and counting. I don't think so anytime soon.

 

Either way, your post does not make any sense... If their phone selection improved - wait - wouldn't that make customers want to STAY instead of LEAVE? That's what I would do, and that's how I think of it.


I also had a good laugh on #2.  AT&T actually now has 93 MILLION wireless customers and only 6.5 MILLION are iPhones

I fully recognize that ATT isn't going anywhere.

 

A guy can dream, can't he?

So much for the OPs pipedream that AT&T will go under after the iPhone launches on Verizon.  iPhone goes to Verizon . . . and AT&T reports their best Q1 ever:

http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2011/04/20/atts-best-quarter-ever-saw-3-6-million-iphones-sold/

 

And iPhone actually lost ground among recent smartphone acquirers:

And interestingly, other smartphones on Verizon are apparently outselling the iPhone:

While it can be argued that some people are waiting for the iPhone 5 to come out, before making the switch, this is hardly the tectonic shift some people were expecting.

 

Go Android!

AT&T will suffer, AT&T's network will improve, AT&T will get a stronger line of phones, AT&T will become Android friendly, Verizon will leave AT&T in it's dust, Verizon's network will get crushed by iPhone........seems like it is one of those rare occasions where JFizDaWiz was right. LOL.

That's interesting that AT&T has reported their best gain for the first quarter sales for this year - over half of which were iPhone sales. I'm sure they're keeping Apple happy.

 

The Verizon iPhone is not as popular as some may think - that's probably mainly due to their large selection of Android-based smartphones available. They sure do have a large selection. The iPhone is weak over there. Smiley Wink

Oh really? What's the name(s)? I wonder if AT&T will get any new Androids aboard anytime soon. Probably not, but you never know. It would be neat to see a couple more roll out. Maybe the mythical Samsung Infuse "4G" will be here soon?

AT&T could be pushing out as many androids, but, they like to find ways to lock a phone before rolling it out, and that take some time. By then other carriers have four or more releases to our one. Smiley Very Happy

Between the announced "coming soon" phones and the rumored phones, I count at least five more android phones that are slated for Verizon in the future.
