    While not directly mentioning the iPhone, the exec says that no one phone that is exclusive to AT&T is going to hurt AT&T if they don't have the phone. He must be living in a dream world. Because I found this chart shortly afterwards.

    While I have no issues with AT&T this states the likes and dislikes of the iPhone and over 20% of people who took this poll didn't like the fact that the iPhone was on AT&T. It's prolly not that high for over all users the iPhone refreshed AT&T and brought it back to at least some what compete with verizon. Now am I saying this would kill the company no. Att is to big to be crushed by verizon. With home phone, Internet, tv and cellphones it will be ok but still this would be a massive loss to there cellphone division.

    Key word is POLL. User opinions change, especially if VZW did get it, a few million people jumped on, and VZW's network got crushed and started having similar problems to ATT (and ATT got better either way because some people left opening up bandwidth).

    Opinions change, it means nothing right now until it happens and new opinions are formed.

    I saw that, someone tell me how losing the exclusive to the iPhone could not affect your bottom line.
