This is really stupid! People are wining about USCC not getting iphone.

Let look at the other companies that have the iphone in their lineup. VZW was the first company that Apple has if they wanted the iphone. VZW said no, because it cost too much and the terms where unacceptable. So Apple went to ATT and they said sure we will do it. ATT got iphone and sold alot of iphones.But, half of the iphones where return and complain about the phone. So, three years when by and VZW finally said yes to the iphone. VZW sold alot of iphones. And had half of the phones returns. Problems too. Both companies did not make money from the sells of iphone. Now Sprint is selling the iphone and bought $15.5 billion. Witch is going to take 3/4 of their revenue. And C-Spire is a small carrier. Only cost them $800 million to get the iphone. Their revenue is $198 million. Is it worth it. No! Other carriers around the world said no to the iphone. Because they will make no and did not like the terms.

So, you tell me. "It worth getting it because it cool." "USCC is behind in newest phone." Please, not having the iphone is not going to break USCC. So, stop the complaining way USCC not getting the iphone.

One last thing. USCC did not said they will never get iphone ever. It is that, now the iphone is too costly and terms they can not do it now. Maybe later USCC will get the iphone. It is not worth losing the company for the iphone. ATT and VZW is now regretting selling iphone. USCC is do the right thing to wait and see what happens later on. If the cost goes down and terms are better. Or maybe it a way for USCC to get publicity. We will see.

That it. What do you think.
