Like any customers cares or is going to pay attention to that information. Here is an idea ATT concentrate on fixing your crappy network! For the love of God I can't wait till my contract ends!

Exactly! The average (read: MAJORITY) of the customers don't care about this at all and this will not influence anything.

When I'm at the grocery store and I want ketchup, I dont care if the no-name brand is $1.00 less and comes in an Eco-Plastic container. I'm getting Heinz, becuase that is what I like.

Customers will go for want they want, and what they like. Their minds will not be changed by something that uses 20% recycled materials.

True, unless AT&T follow suit with Sprint on their "eco-friendly" smartphones and gives some kind of incentive attached to the device. Doubtful, but a possibility.

Won't even matter.

Can you see this scenario ?:

Dude 1) Hey man! I just got an iPhone 4!

Dude 2) That phone isnt for me man, that phone has .54% more antimony trioxide than my device does. You're just a planet hater.

Dude 1) Surprised

Lmao. Strangely enough, 3-4 years ago, I could totally see that conversation happening. Not so much anymore today.

I understand that to most of you this point is mooch. But how can you not understand that there is people that do care....Not that I do, but I have had customers request these kind of figures. So stop trolling or being ignorant which ever the two some happen to be.
