ATT to link iPhone Uverse

AT&T is working on linking the iPhone to its U-verse internet and video service, according to Reuters. The company has been developing new ways for customers to integrate their video, internet, and mobile phone systems. AT&T's position as exclusive carrier for the iPhone will contribute to the new technology. Voice mail messages will be accessible from the user's TV screen, while DVR recordings will be transferable to the phone.

AT&T has already been expanding the capabilities of the U-verse system for customers in certain areas. If a user isn't home but wants to record a show, they can use an internet connection, even from mobile, to schedule a DVR recording. The iPhone will also work as a remote control for the cable box, with specialized apps being created for other functions as well.

"We're looking at the whole landscape, of what people use, and what's out there in the home," said John Donovan, AT&T Chief Technology Officer. Customers can expect to see some of these services available later this year.

    All I can say is WOW !

    I hate AT&T and only use them because of the iPhone, but if they get this working I will switch to U-verse in a heartbeat. This is really cool!
