In fact, a prominent Seattle venture capitalist told me earlier this week that he can’t wait until November when his AT&T contract expires, so he can run out and get a new iPhone 4S on Verizon.
But maybe that venture capitalist is a true outlier, and there really are a lot more people who feel this way about AT&T’s network:
AT&T said today that it has already activated more than one million iPhone 4s devices, the most successful iPhone launch since the company gained access to the device in 2007. Consumers have more choices than ever when it comes to the iPhone, since Verizon and Sprint also launched the 4S earlier this month.
And the AT&T iPhone does have two distinct advantages, allowing simultaneous use of data and voice and support for the HSPA+ mobile broadband.
“It’s no surprise that customers are clamoring for iPhone 4S and they want it to run on a network that lets them download twice as fast as competitors’,” said Ralph de la Vega, President and CEO of AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets, in a press release.
What do you think? If you’re an iPhone customer, are you sticking with AT&T? Or, do you plan to switch to one of the other networks or another device completely?
