I would be pleased.
That would be insanity.
the towers would be so shiny everyone would crash their cars.
And shaped like apples!
They wouldn't even need towers... Apple would create a new technology that doesn't require towers or having to wait a few months after MMS and Tethering are released before supporting it.
Every major Apple product has a 6 page complaint list on macrumors.
Do you really want to be forced to use a mobile provider with such a complaint list? It would probably lack voice, and text messaging because all you need is email and iChat.
Also, Apple probably doesn't think you need reception if you live outside a major city.
Powered by hopes and dreams and the Steve's RDF.
Apple Cell Network
It would cost 2-3 times as much as any of the competitors, but it would "just work," in the same way that MobileMe "just worked." Just don't be one of the first to sign up and you'll be just fine.
Haha! True! Everything apple makes is so sterile and shiny... And clean!
They haven't even done it yet and you're all complaining already.
According to early reports, Apple indeed originally discussed becoming a MVNO for the iPhone. Basically, reselling carrier services as their own.
Then they came to their senses and realized that carriers are always blamed when there's no coverage, or there's problems.
So Apple decided to be smart and just make the phone itself.
Thus they could continue to look good while their chosen carrier(s) might not.
Now that's smart business.
Honestly if apple had their own network like that I don't think we would of seen millions of iPhone sold
Add to this nonsense that a carrier cannot possibly survive with a choice of 1 handset.
Steve Jobs for this job
I now Give you ICell Run by our Special Itowers these Babies run on solar and and are designed like large apples (worms not included) to we will provide free 10 GB service for all our Ifans Microsoft people will pay out there A-- and of course all our Ifans will get the latest and greatest phones with out paying for them in fact we will pay you because at apple Icare!
Why would Apple deal with the hassle? Apple has a great setup. They design the phone, contract a manufacturer to build the pieces of the phone, and contract a telcom to provide service for the phone. All Apple has to do is slap the thing together and sell it. Great business model.
Apple is in the computer hardware business, not the telcom business. Why would Apple subject itself to the same whining and crying AT&T gets?
LOL....yeah, time has proven over and over that nothing works better than a self-righteous monopoly! Go for it, even AT&T would look good up against that!
If Apple ran their own mobile network, you would still be charged for upgrading in contract!
I think it would be cheaper for Apple to buy up one of those carriers than setting up their own.
probally would be cheaper but can't see Apple-Net anytime soon
The towers would probably be made of clear plastic. Wouldn't work very well. Stick with ATT.
Pshh....we all know the towers will be unibody.
