AT&T resumes selling Iphones in New York City

It backs down
Tue Dec 29 2009, 09:59

IT SEEMS THAT AT&T is flogging the Iphone in New York City again after pulling the plug on sales in much of the area, possibly because it could not provide good network coverage there. Or something.

It also told some people that it had stopped selling Iphones in parts of the New York City metropolitan area due to concerns about fraud, but it apparently offered no details to support that line.

Faced with the choice of sprucing up its lack-lustre coverage or stopping sales of the gadget that put too much pressure on it, AT&T apparently tried the latter approach. Although it made no announcements, the policy was uncovered by New York Apple fanboys who wanted to buy the toy for Christmas, and then the news was widely reported.

Now it seems that AT&T has resumed selling Iphones through its website to New York City customers.

AT&T apparently is copying Apple and pretending that nothing ever happened, but then its PR department is probably still on holiday. µ
