I just don't understand why everyone keeps buying iPhones and iPads if they don't do what they want. By purchasing them, you are basically telling Apple and AT&T that you are happy with their products and service. If they don't do what you want, don't purchase them and purchase something that does.

But with Apple's capricious policy on approving and denying apps, I never really know if the phone that does what I want today won't do it tomorrow. So, what, I buy a phone and hope for the best? I guess that's the only reasonable approach when considering an iPhone.

Salespeople are sometimes the most informed people in a company. They know lots of people, talk to lots of people, and get the inside scoop pretty often. This one might play squash with the VP of something, or golf with the IT guys. You just don't know, but it's very possible.
