Four Reasons The Verizon iPhone Launch Failed - Page 2
3. The Hassle of The Switch: So, you’ve got AT&T and now you’re thinking of switching to the Verizon iPhone? You could, if you want to deal with potential contract hurdles, early termination fees and the headache that comes with joining a new carrier. The cost-benefit analysis isn’t worth it for most users. AT&T has already revamped its calling and data plans to compete with the Verizon launch. As an added bonus. current AT&T iPhone customers are being enticed to stay with AT&T with the promise of an additional 1000 rollover minutes.
4. The Competition: The iPhone is one of the most popular handsets, but it isn’t the only one. The openness of the Android platform offers its own advantages over the iPhone and is appealing to many who like to have control over their own handsets. Not to mention that Android hasn’t endured months of bad press. No Antennagate, issues with the proximity sensor, or easily shattered glass. And let’s not count out Windows Phone 7 in light of their newly-established partnership with Nokia following the death of the Symbian platform.
