I just paid off our AT&T account in full, told them I wanted to unlock my iPhone 4S (purchased only eight months ago), and they did it without a fuss. Sweet.
Before we switched to Verizon this week, Jess had an iPhone 4. She told me to save some money and get her another 4, but I surprised her with a 4S.
I think she likes it.
T-Mobile has released its Q4 2011 earnings. Overall revenue dropped slightly, but contract deactivations rocketed up to 802,000 (from 186,000 in Q3 2011). The reason?
However, not carrying the iPhone led to a significant increase in contract deactivations in the fourth quarter of 2011.
So the iPhone 4S is a dud that sold more than twice the units in its opening weekend than the iPhone 4 and is now directly named and blamed in a major US carrier’s earnings statement for nearly one million customer defections.
