  1. only 28 percent were switching to AT&T, down from 38 percent last year…I think the drop can be explained by the availability of better superphones on different networks, such as the Palm Pre on Sprint and the new Google phone (myTouch) on T-Mobile, as well as RIM’s BlackBerry, which continues to do well on Verizon and other networks.

    I have to hand it to you, there’s just no limits to the creativity of you Apple hating Microsoft shills.

  2. Stop using the term “superphone”. No one uses it except you Om, and the originator of the term over at Zumobi. It just makes you sound like an idiot.

    The word is “smartphone”. Get with the program, Om.

    1. if there are smart phones, then those that are not smart phones dumb phones?

      And no, I don’t need to get with the program. Superphone appropriately describes the new class of devices.

      Can you use you real name next time. I would love to exchange emails etc with you on this debate.

  3. I wonder why folks won’t take into account of the returns , and upgrades.

    I know someone who bought the previous version and is planning on returning it in 30 days time.

    But he ordered his 3GS already and will return the older one once he gets 3GS.

    So there should be a separate returns count for all the folks who bought it it last 30 days or so.

  4. Another take is that the pool of people who are willing to switch to ATT for any reason is dwindling. Looking at it that way, 28% is still pretty impressive!

    Until ATT is ready to match other carriers worldwide (who support MMS and tethering day-and-date) and until they are ready to support faster speeds and the load that comes with iPhone, they may not really deserve it. Not to mention paying 50% more for unlimited voice/text/data than on Sprint. I know many folks who’d have long ago been iPhone users if not for those issues, switching from other carriers.

    Imagine iPhone sales in a parallel universe where you can now get it on any US carrier…

  5. Me thinks Joe has an issue with Om. 🙂 Lighten up, Joe; there is so much more to life than Om calling the iPhone a “Superphone” — who cares? Enjoy your day, Joe! Do something good for someone today and have peace at heart. 🙂

  6. I’ve heard absolute horror stories of AT&T and their network, especially in my area (SF/Sacramento, CA, USA), so that steered me to a Blackberry from T-Mobile. Love it so far!

  7. Why are not more people moving to GSM?
    Of course is it impossible for the other carriers to offer a similar device. The rest of the world have used “Superphones” the last 10 years..
