AT&T Says No iPhone for You New York City!

There’s an old saying that comes to mind after reading these headlines from the Consumerist and CNET…

AT&T Customer Service: “New York City Is Not Ready For The iPhone”

AT&T ceases online iPhone sales in NY area

When the going gets tough, AT&T gives up…

I went to AT&T Wireless’ website and saw the message in the screenshot above when I used a New York City Zip Code to search for available smartphones: Sorry, this device is not available in your ZIP code.

So, which iPhone-centric city with a congested AT&T network is next? San Francisco? Boston? Chicago? Will AT&T’s move to stop selling iPhone’s in NYC lead Apple to think a bit harder about what to do as its exclusive contract with AT&T near expiration?
