Reason Why iPhone Owners Hate AT&T
There has been many views on AT&T and the iPhone but it does appear that most hate AT&T and to this end pcworld has come up with 4 reasons why iPhone owners hate the exclusive carrier.
The iPhone 3G S can work on the much faster HSDPA network delivering speeds up to 7.2 Mbps but AT&T will not complete the transition until 2011 which means there are 2 more iPhone generations which will have to cope with the lower speed.
Then there is iPhone MMS and tethering, which have been at the top of the iPhoners want list. US iPhoner’s won’t get MSS until late in the summer as AT&T is conducting “system upgrades” and tethering won’t arrive until about the same time.
But probably the biggest hate is the upgrade pricing for the iPhone 3G S which will cost upgraders $599 for the 16GB and $699 for the 32GB version. Having said all this, I have known iPhoners to hate AT&T for a whole lot longer than for just these reasons.
So do you hate AT&T, if so let us know why.
