Apple Delivers iPhone
Oh boy....Apple, you done messed up now...
I love how Cingular does "their" consumer report by their own personally funded review group.
Telephia is not personally funded. they are an independant research company, and they perform tests on ALL carriers. if they came out and said Verizon had the fewest dropped calls, all the Verizon people would come on here and say how their own research is backed up by an independant firm, but they can't so everyone who's anti-cingular has to bash them.
The national Consumer Report for 07 that I had access to weeks ago clearly shows Alltel is #1 across the board.
we all know how Consumer Reports does their cellular research. this has been d...
Cingular's massive, multimillion-dollar national advertising campaign is based on data from ``the leading independent research company," which Cingular officials have identified as Telephia of San Francisco. Neither Cingular nor Telephia have released data backing up the assertion.
Telephia Inc.'s president, Sid Gorham , sent a letter to the four major wireless companies in May saying Cingular had a ``statistically significant lower dropped-call rate than the competition across some market/time period groups," but noted that his company never analyzes its own data and...
first of all, the data is available, but you have to pay for them. this is how telephia makes their money.
second, at the time these tests were being conducted, 3/4 of the phones in cingular's inventory had external antennas (except nokia bars).
third, the T720 SUCKED with reception, so if that was that really was the only phone they used and got the results they did, i could only imagine what the results would have been like with a GOOD phone.
fourth, Sprint can claim they ONLY use that one phone, but in other results there was mention of using multiple phones from all carriers.
fifth, no i don't live in San Fransisco, i live in NY State, an...
That does not mean that 15 days after the survey..and when the return policy is up that those same customers are still happy with their choice of carrier...and they have to wait till the NEXT year to complain on Consumer reports...so instead they begin complaining in MASSES on websites like hearusnow.org (Consumers union site.) And places like here...where when they offer a genuine complaint...they are either forced to re-think their complaint and love their carrier again by people who can be brainwashed sales people for said carrier. Or left out to hang in the sun...beaten down by those same sales people who again..might be brainwashed i...
Some of these terms include things like full control...including control of price, OS, structure.
A customer's first, clean apparence approach. Thinking about your customers first. Clean stores, clean business practices..the list goes on.
Customer service..on all Apple related products, Customer service belongs to Apple, and customers should be referred to Apple when the partner cannot answer the question. Partners must also focus on providing the best customer service and experience possible.
You literally have to be "perfect" to work with Apple.
Wait...they don't serve ANY OF THESE CITIES. When can a consumer report..(again..its "Customers praise their buying decision before being able to truly experience it...and have to relay advertising hype that was force fed to them.")..that says a carrier that DOESN'T OFFER SERVICE TO MOST MAJOR CITIES providing true, factual information.
Oh wait, It's because most the ppl that participated in that poll live in the sticks...(no pun intended)
I would hope you would say that with not only sarcasm but with heavy sarcasm....I love how Cingular does "their" consumer report by their own personally funded review group. The national Consumer Report for 07 that I had access to weeks ago clearly shows Alltel is #1 across the board. Then followed by Verizon and T-Mobile....Cingular only showed its face in the bottom 3 in only a few select areas....Fewest dropped Calls??...well yes thats true because its hard to drop a call when your phone wont let you make one, ha, funny how that works
Who would honestly think that launching with Alltel would have been a good idea? Really? Cingular is going to roll over 60 million phones soon and with the...
Oh...and I don't see VZW breaking their new Phone Standard to get the iPhone...They would not agree to let Apple control everything in regards to their own product. They'd insist on using BREW...which they use to dummy up and cripple the phones..and loose the contract with Apple anyways.
The thing about Apple, they want complete control of their product. This includes what operating system it uses, the software it uses, the applications it comes with, the apparence of the item, and the price of the item.
VZW would not let Apple put OS X on any of their phones...much less the iPhone. They...
Lets go through this again:
(I only count the home network.)
Voice Coverage: 295 Million + (CDMA) -- 264 Million (iDen)
Data: 158 Million
Voice Coverage: 270 Million
Data Coverage: 250 Million(EDGE) -- 70 Million (HSDPA)
(Note HSDPA phones can access data on the EDGE Network. Many EVDO phones cannot use 1xRTT Data--or its unavailable.)
well buddy tmobile is no comparison, and cingular is the largest network based on customer base...trust me when i say they would make more money selling it on multiple networks....its a phone targeted towards business men and the casual buyer with money....both of which are not generally on cingular
And lets face it...anyone see T-Mo offer business discounts anywhere..except for their own employees?
I see more business people and people with money walking around with their Cingular phones. Getting the best phones...
