“We’re not selling the iPhone in North Dakota,” said AT&T spokeswoman Natalie Bauer.
This makes it official. I live in an outpost on the frontier. The GFHerald (you will have to register to gain access, but it is free and you may enjoy the comments on frontier life) ran an article on the iphone. Unlike most the rest of the US, the message was – you can’t get it here.
The iPhone the much-hyped new product from Apple and AT&T will only be available with wireless service from AT&T.
My personal problem:
Personally, I am not much of cell phone user. My wife threatened to cut off my account last month after I accumulated less than 5 minutes of phone calls (I have an unlimited plan so I can use the phone to check my email and do web browsing). She calculated what that amounted to per minute. I like to think of myself as the strong and very silent type.
My wife is very different in her use of a phone – any phone – and I have been using the promise of an iphone to cover my wife’s Christmas and birthday presents (from last year). I may have to go shopping after all.
