We have some interesting details to share with you now, as AT&T’s President and CEO of AT&T’s Mobility and Consumer Markets division, Ralph De La Vega has been answering questions related to the future of the iPhone and it’s exclusive agreement with Apple.
As reported from the WSJ, Vega answered user questions at a recent media and telecoms conference. When specifically asked when the iPhone exclusivity agreement with Apple would run out, Vega ‘laughed’ and said he wasn’t able to disclose that kind of information.
Furthermore, he revealed that the network wouldn’t be too worried if the iPhone did appear on other networks such as Verizon. He explained that most of their current subscribers are on family-talk plans or business-discount plans, and that these customers would be reluctant to leave their current plans for another carrier.
Do you think AT&T can hold onto their customers if the iPhone 4G lands on Verizon? Give us your thoughts on this.
