I remember.Seems so long ago, how long ago was that and how long were they the only carrier to offer it at the time?
That’s how they got us all bro!Yeah I remember. I had been a Cingular/ATT customer for years, and I wasn’t an Apple user prior to the release of the iPhone. When the iPhone was first released I was a PocketPC user and had just bought an HTC Tilt; I sort of scoffed at the iphones linitations (no 3G? No physical keyboard? What a joke) until a friend of mine got one and showed me the Safari browser and let me type on the screen. That night I exchanged my Tilt for an iPhone and have had almost every iteration since. Sucked me into the Apple ecosystem.
No one knew it was going to be that big so hell no they weren’t ready for all those customers. God I remember that what crappy service at the time.I remember.
I remember waiting four years for the iPhone to come to Sprint because I was not going to move to AT&T.
I remember all the issues with data on AT&T and their network being unprepared. I remember AT&T blaming it's customers for using data.
I remember using a non-iPhone smartphone on Sprint that could cut and paste and send MMS while the iPhone couldn't. I remember iPhone finally getting that feature and AT&T finally enabling MMS.
I remember when Verizon got the iPhone and finally when Sprint got it. Then I remember that it wasn't an iPhone I wanted. So I remember waiting one more year before buying my first iPhone on Sprint.
Yeah. I remember.
Yeah, you may be right now that I consider it.
Antenna gate! Wow that was a big one, they both got too big for there britches at the time..I remember switching from Sprint due to a horrible customer service experience and going to AT&T for the original iPhone back in Feb 2008.
I remember after the 3GS released in 2009 the iPhone commercials showing off being able to talk on the phone via while surfing the web to look things up via 3G and touting "can YOUR phone on YOUR carrier do that" which was clearly aimed at VZW and Sprint since phones could not do both at once via CDMA.
I remember the antennagate fiasco shortly after the iPhone 4 dropped and Apple holding a special event conference for SJ to take the stage to explain/defend. Was it due to the iPhone 4 antenna design or due to AT&T's network?
I remember VZW finally getting iPhone 4 in early 2011 and Spring joining in at the release of iPhone 4S in fall 2011.
