Regardless of what you think about the most rant-inspiring bit of AT&T news – no upgrade pricing for iPhone owners who bought 3Gs and have been sending a lot of money AT&T’s way – they’re dropping the ball here. Apple has brought them many, many new customers; excited, upgrade-happy customers with expensive plans. It’s disingenuous for AT&T to argue that their network is so overloaded they’re struggling to support MMS & tethering. (n.b. these are features long in the tooth and they’re available, like, everywhere else, including my birth country of Croatia – you know, the place that went through a war not long ago?)
What the heck has AT&T been doing with their earnings, if not putting them into maintaining and upgrading the network?
AT&T has stated that the average iPhone customer pays an average of $90 every month. With all that moolah, you would think that AT&T would want to lock in as many iPhone customers as possible before Apple jumps ship to another carrier in 2010.
