AT&T (T) has reportedly been instructing store managers to discourage customers from buying iPhones (AAPL), and instead steer them towards Android and Windows Phone devices. The iPhone's higher subsidies, and AT&T's efforts to reduce subsidy expenses, could be the reason. Verizon has also been trying to lower iPhone sales, reportedly in order to migrate users to its 4G network. AT&T's iPhone sales fell 14% Q/Q in Q2 to 3.7M.

    right on, not to mention the drop is Q/Q, YoY sales are up.

     

    The real story is the multiplicative effect of moving from the overcrowded 3G network to the 4G, what HSPA(?), network. AT&T has a real issue with a drowned 3G network, this is the best they can do other than taking out billboard space saying, "HELP, our 3G network sucks please buy our 4G phones."

    Exactly berylrb,
    That drowning is happening at both major carriers. I expect it may be worse with AT&T having iPhone exclusivity, but really, the high data use is what the carriers will have to all face going forward, given the massive moves of customers into smartphones. I think Verizon and AT&T owe some compensation to Apple for the past several months of steering customers away.....the sign should read,
    "HELP, our 3G network sucks, please buy 4G iPhones and iPads."

    Can't disagree with you. I, however, am a huge Apple fan but do not have an iPhone because my carrier hasn't picked it up. My only point is that AT&T needs Apple more than Apple needs them. They aren't the first carrier to do this, either. Verizon did and probably still does the same thing. The service and repair dollars are probably higher with these Android turds than they are the iPhones so, I would guess that's another factor in the droid push. And God help the fool that buys insurance on one of these phones. Talk about a waste of money. That's a scam all it's own.

    Data and minute plans all cost the same regardless of phone. How are you expecting to save money? Yes the initial purchase price of an iPhone is higher than some Android and Windows mobile phones, but contract costs for the data and minutes constitute the majority of the total cost of ownership of smartphones in the USA for the big 3 telcos.

    Sorry you are so pessimistic. Your handle says it all. "Stop" "Loss". Yo must have a miserable life that will only get worse when you "stop" the Apple experience and you incur more "loss' in your life. Good luck with your game plan. You definitely are myopic if you need a bigger screen to see the future. And BTW, Apple has that solved in the next roll out of products.

     

    P.S. Don't forget to use your finger jesture's to expand the screen. Apple created that too for people like you.

    I have moved from apple to android and lost absolutely nothing. It's a SIMPLE device. It works well (which is a big deal). That's it. You can do more for less on android phones. That's what having competition in the products you buy does for you. I will say apple TV is a cool idea. Bought it 6 months ago, used it three times in the first month, not once since. Nothing gained, $100 lost. Yea buy the new iPhone. And then be forced to buy all new accessories for it because they want to change the port they use that for some reason can't be anywhere close to the majority of ports used in other devices around the world. And you mentioned finger Jesture's. Yea apple was first, and what do you know, have some competition and it becomes better. Android when you double tap it automatically resizes the paragraphs so you can blow it up as big as you want and still fit the paragraph in the screen without scrolling left to right. Nothing lost. Only gains. I'm happy for you that you will finally have real navigation only 6 years late and the option for 4g only two years late. And I'm glad you finally have the option of a bigger screen, only 2 years late. Have fun buying the iPhone next year 2013 when they only add a megapixel to the camera. Yay!

     

    You sound like followers of communists governments. Don't you see how great this is, without realizing that you have to wait on them for everything when you could just have it in the US and have it work on all platforms.

     

    But a real question, what do you do when your computer dies and you have to begin iTunes all over again. Even if you have every song, movie, app, etc saved on a backup hard drive. Is there any way to duplicate iTunes from one computer to another without losing all the organization that took FOREVER to complete?
    Or is this just another way apple forces you to buy everything from them to keep it organized?

    you hit the nail on the head Cifmiller,

     

    "But a real question, what do you do when your computer dies and you have to begin iTunes all over again. Even if you have every song, movie, app, etc saved on a backup hard drive.

    In the future, Microsoft will offer a similar ecosystem that the Mac has with devices, OS and cloud services but the future is not now. Most PC users seem to want to recreate the same inefficient system they have in their windows world with their PC+iPhone instead of embracing the simplicity of iTunes/iCloud backups.

     

    The piece you are missing is that for the Mac user and the savvy PC user you don't need to "backup to a hard drive" Apple gives you access to the iCloud through iTunes. iTunes can be set to backup to the cloud on both a PC and a Mac, just once then it's all via wifi, but most PC users don't appear to know this.

    I agree and have noted this for years. Those who have had iPhones in the past will not be dissuaded from purchasing more iPhones but naive non smartphone users will listen to the sales pitch. The only thing is that while this has continued for years, Apple's iPhone sales have continued to increase so I doubt it will result in any impact on future iPhone sales, especially in the enterprise and particularly in China where Verizon is completely irrelevant.

    Naturally, carriers will steer unsuspecting customers toward their products with better margins, just as they will upsell you new accessories, a more-expensive model, etc. That's sales. A certain carrier attempted to do that to me a couple of years ago when the "new" Google tablet had literally just arrived in that store the first of December 2010. The salesguy was excited to direct me to the newest toy in the store. I played along for the fun of it and tested out the Google tablet (which was reasonably priced). It was not an impressive product, and it felt and looked cheap. I then went to the iPad table. There was no comparison. The Google tablet was not in the same league as the Apple product, and the salesman grudgingly agreed.

    There's a big difference between discouraging customers from buying an iPhone and showing those same customers alternatives. I bought an iPhone 4S at an AT&T store 3 months ago and the sales person made no attempt to show me anything but the iPhone. In fact he was boasting how many iPhones they sell in his store alone. For the most part a customer intent on buying the iPhone isn't going to be dissuaded from their intent. I take all of these stories w/ huge grains of salt, but love the dips they tend to create for the stock.

    People who know what they want will not be persuaded by the typical "used car salesmen" types employed at these places. Many iphone buyers go to the apple stores as well and dont buy from the phone store itself.
    I find even the lastest android os in the samsung III to be unstable and unreliable. With crashes that say "force close" . My iphone 4s has never had any issues,is rock solid and a joy to use. Androids are notoriously hard to update to the latest version of the OS whereas IOS is extremely easy and straightfoward. This debate will rage on, but the majority of iphone users I speak to say they will never switch to an android. Apple stores are still packed while most "phone stores" are virtually empty. I could not get into the Apple store on 14 street in NY city yesterday. It was packed and people were purchasing the new ipads and the iphone 4s as well. The AT & T & verizon stores I walked past were ghost towns. I believe unless a very superior device displaces the iphone or ipad, apples dominance will continue. We will have to see if Microsofts surface can produce results.I am quite interested in purchasing one. All that said, aaapl has become a momentum trading stock disassociated from apples incredible fundamentals.

    I think the point in question is the benefits, or lack of to AT&T.

     

    If they are not happy with their profit margins because of the relationship they currently have with APPLE. That is what needs to change. The demand and popularity or desire for the Apple may still be their. So if it is true that AT&T may want more profits, this may be a way , or at the least they should negotiate with APPLE. As part of the ecosystem that is apple. I would not be swayed to another phone because a salesperson suggests it. So, maybe a less knowledgeable customer. Which , I do not believe your Apple customers are. They are committed to Apple mostly all apple products. Or are being swept into this ecosystem gradually.
    So, let APPLE and AT&T keep a cohesive relationship!!!

    This has been going on for years. Each time I have gone to upgrade one of the five phones on my plan over the last 2.5 years the Verizon sales associates spent the entire sales interaction promoting the Android phone of the hour. This is not a new practice nor the impact for the Q/Q decrease. More than likely people are delaying purchases to get the latest and greatest IPhone as I did last year for the 4S and this year for the 5. The issue is delay and not Verizon nor ATT sales tactics. Bottom line if you want an iPhone you will buy and IPhone, no matter what the sales associates tells you about the virtues of the Android device dejour. MJA

    Appl.is no question the best phone and multi-tasking instrument on the market today.The reason it's not priced at close to the $1200 mark is because the bears are 3 to 1 on apple because their mad their calls have been wrong so very often. I'm a large owner of Apple,and have been doing great since firing my 2- advisors,and buying Apple thru my discount broker 3 years ago.

    According to a reporter, quote:

     

    AT&T responded to the report to deny the accusations, stating that "the idea that we would steer any customer away from a particular device couldn’t be more farfetched."

     

    The company added, "our reps do what it takes to align customer needs with the best device for them. iPhone remains one of our most popular devices, which doesn’t happen by steering people away from it. Our reps are encouraged to try all devices so they are more knowledgeable on our industry-leading smartphone lineup."

     

    Apple's iPhone currently accounts for 72 percent of the new smartphones activated by AT&T.

    If this was a medical situation, the dealers' behavior would be the equivalent of sending someone with a serious disease to a single doctor instead of a hospital.... MALPRACTICE !
    Iphone owners don't change because they realize that with the Iphone they get a system that includes Itunes, Icloud, and integration with other phones, devices and people on a level that is not only unprecedented, but clearly continuing to expand.
    It is also bad business for ATT and VZ to not sell Iphones if this is true, because, as was pointed out earlier, Iphone users utilize these systems, and thus minutes, far more than others.... because THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO ACCESS !!!
    Iphone users have the highest loyalty unquestionably. For good reasons.

    There have been too many anecdotal reports to discount that salespeople were doing this, I have even asked salespeople about the situation. Official PR statements will of course deny such allegations....

     

    For prior Apple users, this will probably not matter....for people transitioning to smartphones, what a salesperson guides them to and recommends probably matter more. Let's wait until after 4G is available for iPhone, then see whether sales behavior changes or not......

    Apple reports @ least $20 per share in earnings.

     

    Give that Facebook's P/E and you've got Apple at $8,960 per share.

     

    Apple is frighteningly undervalued.

    I've always felt that the Dow 30 should be the top two market cap companies (averaged over the previous 5 years) in 15 key economic sectors. Re-balance every 5 years.

     

    Apple would certainly qualify and I think a split is unnecessary.

    I like that... but good luck !

     

    I think Apple is shameful for not splitting. Even small amateur investors need to be able to buy 100 share lots of stocks in order to be able to take advantage of basic hedge and cash flow opportunities that benefit stockholders. To that end, the average little bright consumer, the very people who have supported Apple and made them successful over the years, cannot afford to own the stock. Wealthier people and hedge funds who used Blackberries all these years are the ones who benefitted from Apple's rise. That's a little ironic, eh? Apple's current stagnant price is at least the result of the fact that they need a new group of stockholders to begin buying in... everyone that can afford it now owns it.

     

    A split would bring in millions of new stockholders, possibly include it in DJI, and thus drive up demand and bring the stock up to its appropriate value. I think a 10:1 split would end up netting a very reasonable $100/share stock. Now THAT is delivering value to stockholders... not some pittance dividend.

    @jmarker, DJ aside owning one share of AAPL is equal to 200 shares of NOK, I think amateur investors that feel left out are a little arithmetic challenged, eh!?

     

    I not holding my breath for DJ inclusion historically there's no precedent that Apple moves to the drum beat of the Market

    Hey Berlrb, stop making fun of us who are afraid of math..... ;)

     

    I think it may be mutually beneficial for AAPL and DJ....AAPL is so influential that they sometimes mention an Apple effect on the market....DJ needs to get with it...I don't even look at the Dow, just the S&P and Nas....

    @Ronin, righto ... Ha!

     

    Ah DJ as in index investing eh? I had not thought of it that way, I hold S&P through VFINX.

     

    So what would be the benefit to AAPL, would it decrease volatility to be in the DJ, any data to support that? Is it in the shareholders best interest to have lower volatility, I've never given that much thought really.

    The overall benefit for AAPL shareholders are those that come with a split.....improved availability to more retailers, relief from a psychological effect of high price (I say psychological because we all realize that it doesn't alter percentage gains or losses, people get more freaked when AAPL drops $30 than $3 in a 10:1 split...rats, you tricked me into some math) ;)

     

    ......then I understand that some funds mirror the Dow, meaning that they will be buying stock if they enter...it won't be like the fund buying that came with the dividend, nevertheless I like fund buying.....moves the stock.....
