Are you still a “valued” AT&T customer, unswayed by the release of the iPhone 4 on Verizon? Then AT&T would like to show their appreciation by giving out a thousand free Rollover minutes to iPhone customers. AT&T in-coincidentally began sending out messages informing customers with an active iPhone account of
Today TeleNav announced that its TeleNav GPS app for the iPhone will only be released for the Verizon iPhone 4. Wait, what? Is this part of some exclusivity deal? Is Apple really going to allow this? Are AT&T and Verizon customers looking at a future of popular apps only being
Engadget has received a tip from a reader who came across something quite unexpected: an ambiguous shelf tag in a Houston Best Buy. The shelf tag in question seems to be there for the impending launch of a white 16GB AT&T iPhone 4. The no-commitment price on the tag is
