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.
