    I went on the ATT site today to check prices on phones and did my usual check boxes to filter out phones other than Blackberry’s by selecting “Blackberry” as a filter in the OS category. To my surprise, iPhones weren’t filtered out. Check out the screen capture I got, http://yfrog.com/hqattpagep, anyone else experiencing this or has apple finally decided to trash their OS and replace it with RIM’s?

    That whole filter by OS section on the AT&T website is broken. If you select Apple OS it still shows BlackBerrys and the Palm Pre

    I’m sure no matter WHAT you select, AT&T is going to show you an iPhone. They gotta push as many as they can and get as many people as possible on 2-year contracts before they lose the exclusive.

    A few months ago, on our university’s AT&T website, if you didn’t select “QWERTY keyboard” as one of your filters, then the BlackBerrys wouldn’t show up.

    I dunno it seems like it. They have always had weird search screw ups. I think they just have a bad backend or faulty metadata

    Perhaps they outsource too much so as to reduce costs i guess..

    That’s funny. Guess they are just trying to pull one over on uneducated consumers. That or they have really stupid employees.
