I would imagine its because the AT&T network can’t utilise the 2 big ones, tethering and MMS.

Cause its not that big of an update. They will wow me with video chatting. Not a compass.

because its like the launch of the DSi… pointless if you already have a DS, but really cool to get the DSi if you don’t.

Because AT&T is subsidizing the increased cost of the new phones, and it’s cheaper for them if you buy an older phone.

From the beginning of the iPhone, ATT employees have seemingly been “anti-iPhone.” When I went to buy my first gen iPhone, the sales lady dissed it openly and complained about Apple the entire time. I was not impressed.

The AT&T network can’t handle the increased traffic and it’s cheaper for them to try to reduce the number of iPhones sold than make the necessary investments in the infrastructure.
