    My first reaction was negative, but I think it doesn’t really affect most subs because you can’t get the iPhone on any other carrier.

    Maybe they could use the extra revenue to finally get 3G coverage in Pueblo, CO.

    Bastards…

    Hello FCC ….!?

    What happened to the follow up on VZW??
    They failed to make an example out of VZW, now all the “me too Geniuses”, will follow this absurdly abusive policy !

    Thank You

    Jeff, except the persistent rumors that iPhone is headed to Verizon. Leaving customers with iPhones already in a lurch; they have to chose between upgrading and locking into the steeper ETFs, or sit out up to a full two years to upgrade to the next iPhone.

    AT&T, like Verizon has realized that no-contract services are becoming more attractive, and that their device niches are starting to collapse. Android will be on prepaid by this time next year in full force.

    So if you start out on a dumbphone contract with AT&T, buy an AT&T smartphone off ebay, pop your SIM in (which triggers AT&T to automatically upgrade your data plan to the smartphone data plan), you get mad about that and cancel your account… Do you get hit with a dumbphone ETF or a smartphone ETF?
