NYC Isn't Ready For The iPhone
According to the Consumerist, AT&T has suspended sales of iPhones in NYC due to increasing complaints about poor performance. From a conversation with AT&T customer service:
Daphne: Welcome to AT&T online Sales support. How may I assist you with placing your order today?Others are saying that only online sales have been suspended, due to "widespread fraud." The iPhone is still selling in NYC's Apple stores.
Laura: Hi, I was looking at the iPhone 3Gs and the system tells me that I cannot order one in my ZIP code. My zip code is 11231. (Brooklyn, NY) Is this true? Are iPhones no longer available in New York City?
Daphne: I am happy to be helping you today . Yes, this is correct the phone is not offered to you because New York is not ready for the iPhone.
Daphne: You don't have enough towers to handle the phone.
Laura: Thank you for your help. So the phone is not available to people anywhere in the city?
Daphne: Yes this is correct Laura.
