AT&T Says Fraud. Consumerist Says O RLY?

AT&T Says Fraud. Consumerist Says O RLY?

Update: New York customers are now able to order iPhones via AT&T’s Web site. It would appear that the company has once more modified its “promotions and distribution channels.” We’ve requested a statement from AT&T, and will update this post if and when we receive it.

AT&T online customer service reps have apparently changed their tune since we first reported yesterday that they were telling potential iPhone buyers that New York “is not ready for the iPhone.” The current line: “Due to increased fraudulent activity, the Apple iPhone may not be available to purchase online in certain ZIP codes.” There’s just one problem: It seems pretty unlikely.
