Re: It's the iPhone, stupid
said by Irun Man:The wireless market is NOT only about the IPHONE or ANY one handset... it's about the bottom line costs and the smaller carriers are fighting a tide, which is a race to the bottom on the most service for the lowest price.. anybody who think's it's always about the iphone speaks only to a demographic that can obviously afford a $649 phone and are not the segment of customer tmobile & metro are going for..
Carriers that didn't pay the dreaded iPhone tax are feeling the pinch and customers are leaving in droves. Smaller players such as MetroPCS have been hanging on by the fingernails since iPhone 4.
T-Mobile has been swimming against the tide as well and iPhone 5 is only accelerating customer defections.
We are being assimilated by the
Borg great apple.
