Thread: AT&T Releases iPhone Activation Data, Earnings

is a discussion within the

iPhone News

forums, a part of the

General iPhone

section;
AT&T has one vital plus over all of their competitors. It's called simultaneous voice & data. I don't think any other network has that. Originally Posted by Markanthony3211 Too expensive!

    They wanted a deposit because you obviously have bad credit with their reporting agencies. The $60 activation is normal & the iPhone itself cost almost $200 to make. Selling a product for less than production costs is INSANE! Good luck w/ T-MO and when you come around you can always throw an unlocked iPhone on your account.
    I would have my URL here so you could hear our music but apparently that's sig spam. WTF?

    actually, the 500 is a "no hit" deposit. this means he doesnt have bad credit , but no credit history at all. Makes no sense i know. And the activation fee is only 35...

    You're right, I was thinking about the phone + taxes + activation. That's roughly $250-$260 total. Hence the $60 idea. Smh lol The deposit is a pain but all you have to do is pay on time for a year & you get it back right?

    verizon has no one to blame but them selves. Apple went to them first with the iphone and Verizon turned them down...talk about hind sight being 20 20. I'm thinking verizon would re think that decision today.

    That's correct Creasy. All y'all verizon fanboys can blame the CEO. verizon had the 1st shot at the iPhone and they more or less told Apple to kick rocks. If I was Steve, I'd put it on every other carrier except verizon in spite. Maybe next time they'd consider it.

    Since the year was so prosperous (because of customers), they need to bring back the unlimited data plan for everyone NEW or old accounts!!

    you can still get unlimited data. call customer care and throw a big enough fit about something and they will add it to ur account...only c.c. can do it tho. Dont try it at a store location.

    Haha I wouldn't go that far.. I doubt the iPhone kept them in business... It really lifted them up but even verizon had got the first iPhone I'm sure they would be well ahead of AT&T but AT&T would be right behind them.

    I like AT&T but some one else needs to get the iPhone so it will a wake AT&T and force them to improve their network. But a big change is coming so I hope to see some improvements from AT&T network. I'm still sticking with AT&T but as a long time customer I would like to see some changes.

    i know one thing we can all cry and complaint about AT&T & verizon we will never be happy with either one of them, even if they gave everybody free service we will still find something to cry about It's Our Nature to do so lol.

    And where does that money go? Does it go to building new towers and expanding coverage? Lower customers bills? Hahaha, oh what am I saying. What stupid ideas. Using their money for improving the network... oh, yeah right. No no no, AT&T should spend their money on executive bonuses and frivolous lawsuits against Verizon, not making customers happy... why on earth would they want to do that?
    Man, I'm so glad I'm not on AT&T...Verizon may be greedy and full of s**t, but at least I can use the services I pay them for. Using my phone to make *gasp* phone calls is helpful you know.

    Exactly I've had AT&T since the 90's and ive stuck with them because all other carriers suck compared to them (well at least in my area).

    ATT has nothing to do with the recall. That's an Apple problem. Besides, that will never happen. Never. Steve Jobs has a little too much pride.

    this is how i look at it... it's a business transaction between apple and at&t. they both benefited from it.

    for those complaining about drop calls... go elsewhere so you don't have to whine about it, for those complaining about apple, don't buy their products.

    simple
