Verizon Wireless is taking a bit of pleasure over AT&T's continuing troubles with the Apple iPhone. Ever since the first reports of 3G reception problems, limited battery life, and dropped calls, Verizon's media relations arm has been highlighting the issues in e-mails to reporters.
Just today, I received an e-mail that spotlighted a Dow Jones story over the reluctance of AT&T and Apple to take blame for the iPhone's problems. A Verizon spokesman also added his own take. "At the end of the day, a customer doesn't care who's at fault--the phone or the network. But they do want a little responsibility. Because either way, it can add up to a horrible experience. Why would a customer risk their entire mobile experience by getting an iPhone at all?"
