What's more telling is that T-Mobile hasn't done this yet. Seems less likely they'll get the iPhone this go around with the oddball 3G frequency.
Please shut the fuck up.
Its just shocking, shocking I tell you, that AT&T finds itself behind Verizon on LTE. While AT&T touts its "4G" HSPA+, Verizon is going to hand them their asses when it comes to LTE. What a joke of a company. New motto from AT&T's next ad campaign: Day late and a dollar short.

AT&T hasn't been prepared for any previous iPhone launch, so this might be a refreshing change of pace.
There are some advantages to AT&T, if you have a signal in your area. But there are possible reasons for these numbers that you left out. The $50 iPhone 3GS is 1/4 of the cost of an iPhone 4, and is only available on AT&T. A strong brand association between AT&T and the iPhone, and Verizon and Android, has been built up over the last few years. Verizon has a much stronger lineup of Android phones to sell than AT&T does, including LTE phones. Most important, people who...
