AT&T to expand iPhone availability

AT&T, iPhone availability

AT&T today announced that it will transition more of Dobson's Cellular One stores to its own AT&T name, and will make Apple's iPhone available at those retail locations. The move will greatly increase the availability of iPhones to customers who were previously unable to obtain the device locally in more than 200 stores in 16 states, and will allow Alaskan residents living in or around Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau to purchase Apple's cellular phone.

"We're thrilled to welcome these new members to the AT&T community and offer them an amazing portfolio of wireless products and services, plus the nation's largest voice and data network," said Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO of wireless services for AT&T.

"From the iPhone to our exclusive Rollover(R) Minutes to cutting-edge data and content, our new customers will have exciting and innovative wireless options not previously available to them. We're integrating quickly and in time for the important holiday shopping season."


Dobson customers can switch to AT&T plans without activation or upgrade fees, according to the company. Customers who choose AT&T calling plans will also benefit from Rollover Minutes, and those who currently have a Mobile to Mobile feature will be able to use those minutes to reach all of AT&T's 67.3 million wireless customers.
