I thought I would post this simply because I found it interesting, but the claim is absurd for many reasons. I just called T-Mobile to cancel my service with them, and when I was asked why I was canceling, I said I had switched to ATT for the iPhone. The customer rep said that T-Mobile had an iPhone like device coming out in Sept. and my response was something to the effect of wanting an Apple phone. She said that this device was from Apple, but that T-Mobile wanted to wait until the phone "didn't have any problems." She further stated that this phone would have a removable battery and other features that "customers wanted", but that the iPhone didn't offer. I confirmed that she was saying this was a phone from Apple for the T-Mobile network and she continuously affirmed that. I just said it sounded interesting and that I was anxious to see it. This would sound completely absurd to anyone familiar with Apple and even more absurd to anyone familiar with the Apple/ATT partnership, so it seems like the only real query here is why this rep. would feed me these apparent lies. My only guess is that she doesn't understand Apple is a company and not a type of device...although it seems hard to believe anyone would have this misconception.
