Good luck with that... the gears are already in motion. Once a machine like this starts going it's very hard to make it stop...
It's much more effective to vote with your wallet. They reduced the price of the iPhone due to many potential buyers complaining about price. If enough vote with their wallets against these higher data rates then maybe something will happen, but a petition isn't going to do anything...
First off with IRU and CRU discounts the iphone plans are actually cheaper. If you don't get a discount, well that kind of sucks.
Second, online petitions never work.
Here's an idea for you:
If you are unhappy with Apple/ATT, DON'T BUY IT!
Money talks. Unfortunately there are enough irrational spenders out there that the phone will probably sell just fine.
They don't give a **** about your petition, as long as people are still lining up on July 11.
Im afraid to sign something like this. If grand master ATT finds out who I am they'll take away my Co. discount.
you aint gotta go home but you got to get the heck up outta hea !
I was just about to make a petition. Thank you for doing this. Even if this does nothing, I want Apple to know that I am dissapointed that they let AT&T charge so much. All I want is 200-500 sms messages included in the $30 data package. Is that reallly too much to ask? I am okay with the increased fee for 3G, but taking away messages is simply unacceptable.
I'm not sure that Apple really had that much to say about AT&T pricing. Do you think other manufacturers complain to them when they change rates?
Some of you people here are insane. Can you honestly think that going from EDGE speeds to 3G speeds is not worth anything? People need to grow up. EVERY ISP in the world charges more for increased bandwidth why shouldnt AT&T?
Yeah... I guess I am an irrational spender . But this is true, online petitions won't do much now. It's been decided.
This is so ridiculous! At&t is giving you faster data, faster data = more cost.
Someone should take these names as a hit list.
Very well writted petition. You hit everything right-on and with great clarity. Only thing I would like to see added is the omission of text messages in the $30 data package.
GOOD LUCK WITH THIS
The new data price is AT&T's standard pricing for smartphones. As it was before, the iPhone wasn't a smartphone, now it is, so now it "qualifies" for the higher cost. If you don't like it, get a first-gen iPhone, they can still be found.
well people have to make money in order to stay in business. they decrease your phone price then they must compensate it with other things. have you ever asked yourself how much a comparable device from other manufacturers costs?
if you dont like it then you don't buy it. other people like it, so they line up outside the store to buy it. it' so simple.
nice it's on digg
We should try and get this on the front page
So you're saying you'd like them to admit they deceived the public, then allow you to take the iphone to other providers, and finally reduce their profit margin on the rate plans? Anything else they can do for you? Maybe a ride on the corporate jet?
Anyone know Steve Job's email? I remember when the iPhone went down in price people emailed him and he gave a $100 credit to those people.
i don't know if you own an iphone or if you get a discount but on the first gen there are no discounts for plans and on the second gen no word has been mentioned for discounts.
Sjobs@apple.com or firstname.lastname@example.org I think
Read the leaked memo and the various reports from people who talked to ATT customer support.
Old iphone = no discounts
New iphone = discounts
This is due to the iphone not getting a special rate plan. No revenue sharing, no special rate plans. Therefore the discounts now work on the iphone 3g plan, therefore the new iphone rate plan can in fact be cheaper depending on your discount.
The petition says that AT&Ts plans are not competitive with other carriers...is that even true? TMobile, which is the example used in the petition, is at best the same price as AT&T for comparable service.
I signed, but I know it won't do anything... In all reality, how much signature do you think we would have to get to mean ANYTHING? 100,000??
thats fantastic! hoping for >$20 data plans & >$30 voice lol
Cell phone carriers comparing rates as "competitive" is kinda like ancient Romans and the Hussein brothers competing to see who was less brutal.
I get 3G costing more by itself, but you're forcing everybody to pay premium rates when the coverage in the US is spotty at best. There also isn't an option to do it any cheaper.
Don't start to lecture on "don't buy it!" I'm not going to because that's the only way AT&T will ever get it. Problem is if you don't start screaming at these people, they really don't pay attention.
how many people live in areas that will be getting the new iphone? that's your answer. anything short of that will have no effect. people not signing it will still buy and half the people signing it will probably end up with an iphone.
