Apple’s exclusive iPhone carrier, AT&T, ranked dead last in just about every category in this week’s Consumer Reports survey. In 19 of 26 the cities surveyed, AT&T was ranked the worst. Oh, FYI, last month Consumer Reports had the iPhone 3GS and 3G at #1 & 2 in the smartphone category and we all know that MacBooks and iMacs are perennial top-of-listers.
Perhaps it’s time for Apple and its #1 Consumer Reports brand to consider shopping the iPhone out to different carriers? It seems a bit strange that Apple is asking its customers (who demand the highest quality of service in Apple products) to sign a two year pact with the worst carrier (by far) in the US.
