It just makes me crazy how in these economic times and very poor Public Relations that companies have that they keep finding ways to alienate customers and piss people off. When the iphone becomes more provider available i am gone and i will pay them bitches with pennies....

This REALLY sucks! WTF!, i wonder what's on their mind, they must think, "ok, this dumb a$$ fell for the candy (iPhone) now, let's enslave him for two years, so that when he finds out someone else offers the iPhone with better service (and hopefully lower price), they won't leave us" ,like someone else said, keeping customer by force instead of keeping them happy, i underestand they have to get the subsidy back, but damn, i think $350 is way more than that!, and then there is that other rummors going around about tiered data service?, and by the way whatever happened to tethering? damn them...

Rhetorical Question: What does it say about a company when they have to imprison their customers in order to keep them? Why not focus on delivering an excellent and competitive service? This is not a sustainable business model. Didn't work for AT&T's long-distance business and ultimately won't work for their wireless business. It's a classic case of business executives focusing on their personal quarterly results and kicking the "can" of big/risky decisions ahead to the executive who has their responsibilities at the future point in time when the can/decision can no longer be kicked forward and must be acted on.

It's a shame that AT&T haven't seized the iPhone opportunity to please their customers, build brand loyalty, and expand their network. They've had (and perhaps will have) the iPhone exclusivity for nearly 3 years but have only dug a hole for themselves. The extra revenue the iPhone brought in should have been spent on upgrading their service (which they need to do) and introduced fair and honest network charges. Instead, they've only concentrated on extracting cash from customers who wan't a quality smartphone but are forced to choose their network. I for one am very disappointed with Apple since they are well aware of the deficiencies in AT&T's service and haven't so far offered the handset to other providers. The exclusivity contracts are bad for customers as they inhibit price competition on particular handsets which in turn makes them more expensive and less desirable. Apple could sell more iPhones is the carrier charges were less! THIS IS JUST BAD BUSINESS
