I think LTE is more important than the Iphone and I would much rather see that before any Apple product in a USC store. If we got the Iphone we may of had to push back LTE (I'm just speculating but its probably likely). C Spire is probably just taking a gamble, if this doesn't work for them they may be gone soon. USC probably didn't want to take that gamble at this time. If you had to pick between LTE sooner or a 3G capable Iphone (cause there is no 4G capable one) which would you invest in?

I'd go LTE all day and shoot for relevant phones like the Galaxy S2 or whatever else comes out later.

Iphone is a nice product, would be happy to sell it but I don't think not getting it and C Spire now selling it is a fault to USC. We don't even know if C Spire will make a profit or grow at all because of this.

Heck if they go under because they didn't make enough $ out of the Iphone will you then say USC made a good call not getting it? I think it is too soon to make a judgement on this move.

I will comment on something you said that I agree with though. The current movement USC is in hasn't been working. We can talk about values all day long and try to create customers that tell other about our great service but in reality, for every customer that goes home and brags about how great the experience was at a USC store there are at least 5-10 customers from other carriers going home and bragging about how cool the phone they got at Verizon/AT&T/Sprint is. That is just the society we live in, we are more focused as consumers on the product instead of the service.
