AT&T Reps Instructed to Sell Anything But iPhone

It’s easy to say iPhone sales have significantly slowed on AT&T, growing only 3% in the last quarter. The common rumor was just that everybody is holding out for the next generation. AT&T may have other motives, though. According to BGR, regional retail sales managers have been ordering that store managers push for sales of Android or Windows Phone, rather than the iPhone. Even if a customer comes in with every intention to buy an iPhone, customers should be informed of the other options as well for an “informed decision.” One manager reported that he had seen almost a 30% drop in iPhone sales after instructed to sell other products.

It’s good to see that people are getting the full spectrum of options out there from AT&T. But how do you guys feel about it? Let us know!
