Didn't they do the same thing for their at-risk customers a month before Verizon launched the iPhone in February?

I know that people tend to think that big companies like at&t are omniscient, but they really have no way of knowing who is 'at risk' of leaving for Verizon or anywhere else....they can't actually read anybody's mind and they don't know whether or not you're thinking about leaving...

In fact, their customers have INCREASED in the last year, increasing customers in the midst of an economic depression is quite a feat.

I know that people think at&t is centered 100% around the iPhone and that without the iPhone the company would crash and burn.

That's not even close to true. at&t became the nation's largest carrier in 3rd quarter 2004, nearly 3 years BEFORE the iPhone.

And at&t has been preparing for the iPhone for the last 2 years by switching to Android. Today, 3 of the 5 best selling at&t phones are Android phones. The combined sales of Android exceed the sales of the iPhone.

In addition, the Verizon iPhone has been....not quite a failure but nevertheless a disappointment, it hasn't sold a fraction of wha...

AT&T is losing customers because they use mass-rape as a scare tactic when customers try to leave.
