    AT&T Reps Report High Sales Quotas for the month of June



    According to BGR, AT&T reps have reported an unusually high sales quota for the month of June, which leads BGR to believe that there is a good chance the new iPhone will go on sale on Friday, June 18th 2010. And I agree, based on the information at hand and the timing of WWDC.

    "Well so what if sales quotas are high?" you may be asking. What needs to be understood is that with the amount of sales required in one month, and the average amount of units sold each month, AT&T wouldn't be able to meet the unusually high quota for June if the iPhone were to be released a week later or in July. The extremely high demand for sales this month is a good indication that something is around the corner. Timing coincides with WWDC as well, so this could be it folks.

    Keep your eyes peeled, as June 18th isn't far away and WWDC is right around the corner.

If any stores quotas have been increased is because of the productivity from the previous month. Even knowing this I still hope it comes sooner then later.

      Cant wait for all you guys to run to verizon and kill their network. Hopefully AT&T will perform a little better once you all jump ship.

      --- and that mock up is so sexy... i really gotta buckle down and learn how to render stuff like that.

      I'll be jumping ship as well. I'm not going to support a carrier that doesn't believe in offering unlimited data. Yes technically it's 5gb, and yes I know I can get grandfathered in, I just don't believe in supporting their cause. The past two months I've used over 2gb of data. Mainly because I travel a lot and use Slacker radio wherever I go. I don't see how at&t thinks 2gb is enough. It's ridiculous and I'd love to see everyone jump ship just to boycott them and make them rethink their decision on that, but I know that would never happen.

      I'll wait until July 1st, Just so I don't have to punch someone in the face who is in line talking all the cool things he saw in a commercial somewhere or something a friend told him.

      I'm with you on that! Walk in, buy a phone, walk out. No waiting in line for untold hours only to be stuck in a bottle neck of new phones being activated.

      And yes, having to listen to the "Apple" folk with Apple stickers on everything they own, talking about all things Apple and how great the iPhone is. What a waste of a day!

      You guys ever heard of buying online?

      That is where I will be purchasing the day it is announced. That is how I got my 3GS delivered on the day it was available in stores.
