Not true...if you have to replace your iPhone for any reason (other than a defect) before your contract expires, you will pay the unsubsidized list price for that iPhone.
Don't get me wrong, I am not an apologist for AT&T....I too agree with many of the complaints. However, an 18 billion upgrade is not a half-hearted attempt. Would a company like Sprint even have the capital to take on such an upgrade? They are losing money and customers every quarter. Verizon is stuck in CDMA-land.....and will be there a few more years before they can offer a truly national 4G network....and by then, all other carriers will have it as well.
Well, yes you are paying Apple the next two years.....it's just that Apple got all their money upfront. Each iPhone has a $400 subsidy. AT&T collects it from you over 24 months ($400 / 24 = $16). So, in reality, your $30 Data plan is divided between AT&T and Apple. I almost wish AT&T had it all so that they could spend more on the network upgrades....instead of this money sitting in Apple's bank account. Also, I wonder what Apple told AT&T regarding iPhone Sales...
Yeah....it only took them 60 years to go from SDTV to HDTV....that was fast, government, thank you! HDTV was demonstrated in the 1980s !!!! On top of that, they couldn't even get that right as they delayed the cutover date over and over again.
Wrong again. You were in charge of your 401k.....you chose to contribute...and you chose the investments....all the Gov did was define what a 401k was.The large banks got large because customers chose them. Consumers had a choice....not a mandate from the government. If you don't want choice and you want the government to control everything, go to Russia.....I hear they have a thriving economy and a technology sector that the world envies .
There is so much that is wrong with what you said that I don't know where to begin. First, the government should just let companies make their own decisions and they should not be telling any company who/what/where/why/how they should run their business. No thank you, FCC....keep out. Second, carriers are not manipulators.....cell phone makers are. The cell phone makers are the ones who desire and initiate exclusive contracts with carriers so that they can receive...
...and all provide this information to government authorities when asked. If you want to keep your location a secret, DO NOT CARRY A CELL PHONE.
Verizon and Sprint further ahead? You have to be kidding....they are all equally stressed. At least AT&T has higher speeds and a plan to double it again in the months ahead. Yes, all of them will go 4G....probably at the same time as the new cell phones are introduced. Just because some engineer at Sprint placed a 4G call using a single 4G Cell tower doesn't make them the leader. That was pure hype for their commercials "The First 4G Network". Baloney.
Go get a free 3G Card for your PC....hardware is free and the monthly tethering costs will be the same.
Well, clearly, they ignored the total number of concurrent users.
