AT&T halts online iPhone sales to New York City residents
DjSmooth pointed out today an interesting article that surfaced. For those of you in the New York City area wanting an iPhone may want to read on.
Numerous sources are reporting on the topic and it does not appear there has been an Official AT&T response posted yet?
Apple's exclusive U.S. iPhone wireless provider AT&T began halting online sales of the touch-screen device to residents of New York City and its surrounding areas this past weekend but has been unable to provide a reasonable explanation as to why.
Further checks revealed the Apple handset is currently unavailable for purchase through the carrier's website to consumers living anywhere in New York City, or in any of the suburban zip codes in Westchester County or northern New Jersey.
When questioned about the situation Sunday, an AT&T online customer service representative by the name of Daphne told journalist Laura Northrup that the iPhone is no longer being offered to customers in those areas "because New York is not ready for the iPhone."

This has GOT to hurt AT&T's business as well as their image as a carrier/service provider with the public, don't you think?

I agree that this 'incident' certainly will not help AT&T in a time when their capacity is already being questioned.
AT&T has always been more about the device over the network and they have done very well with this philosophy. But oh my for them to stop offering the device then to stonewall as to why this was done leaves the door wide open to speculation and I see none of that going in their favor. IMHO this not a well thought out move at all on AT&Ts part.
Looks like AT&T has resumed selling iCraps in NY... didn't take long...
