    Can AT&T Handle the iPhone?

    Advertisement



    From Seekingalpha.com: You almost have to admire AT&T’s consistency. They are consistently finding new ways to screw up almost daily now. The latest issue involves the story we covered Tuesday about apps using the Google Voice service getting pulled from Apple’s App Store. In a follow-up post, we didn’t exactly go out on a limb suggesting that it was AT&T and not Apple, that was responsible for the app being pulled. After all, word is that Apple VP Phil Schiller personally ushered one of those apps, GV Mobile, through the approval process initially. And today brings word that the apps were indeed removed at AT&T’s request. Daring Fireball’s John Gruber cites a “reliable little birdie” on the news, and we’ve just heard the same thing from a source as well.

    While some found it very hard to believe that AT&T would be the ones behind something like this, given that it allows Google Voice apps on other phones on its network, those kind of contradictions are nothing new when it comes to AT&T with the iPhone. It’s the same contradiction that prevents the SlingPlayer iPhone app from working on AT&T’s network, while it works just fine on other AT&T devices. And the same one that is likely to cripple a Hulu app, if it ever gets released.

    I've seen a few other articles citing 'sources' saying that it was in-fact AT&T, but I just cannot for the life of me, understand why some companies go out of their way to annoy their customers and cripple their devices. It is especially frustrating if you're one of those people who have no real choice of carrier in your area and get stuck. Much like Telus blocking SMS and Alltel disabling GPS, it just doesn't make sense from a business perspective.

    Oh boy that's a big, long answer for many people. These links will give you my impressions.

    RIM Article voicing concerns about the future.

    MobileMe - BES for the rest of us.

    I left the BB Bold and switched to the iPhone and I'm happy i did. The UI is very nice and easy to use. There is a very short list of things i miss but pails in comparison to what the iPhone offers.
