Color me skeptical on that. Is that just a rumor you heard, or can you point to some solid evidence and statements to that effect somewhere? I'm generally doubting that's true, but **if** it is, and the Apple fanboys with iPhones are really being given preference over long-term AT&T-->Cingular-->AT&T customers, then I'd sure like to know it to raise holy hell with them. FWIW, I haven't seen any noticable differences in speed before/after the iPhone release date.
