Why Do iPhone Owners Hate AT&T So Much?

iPhone user AT&T gripes include the (lack of) speed of the carrier’s data network, lack of MMS and tethering (use of the iPhone as a modem), high early upgrade prices, and AT&T’s limits on the development and functionality of iPhone apps (see: Skype and Slingplayer apps.)

Of course, except for the fourth, these are all issues that many customers, especially smartphone owners, have with AT&T. Minor details.
