“Apple’s iPhone X has been the ‘most highly-anticipated’ version of the technology giant’s flagship phone, the chief executive of AT&T Communications, told CNBC on Tuesday,” Arjun Kharpal reports for CNBC. “John Donovan, who is the boss of the second-largest U.S. mobile carrier, answered in the affirmative when asked by CNBC if sales of this iPhone would be ‘bumper.'”
“‘All the signs are that customers love it. It’s probably the most highly-anticipated version… and demand has been strong. So we’re pleased,’ Donovan said in a TV interview at the Web Summit technology conference in Lisbon, Portugal,” Kharpal reports. “Chief Executive Tim Cook told CNBC in a recent interview that ‘customer demand is off the charts.’ Several analysts have also backed up the view.”

MacDailyNews Take: And water is wet.
I’m sure AT&T will find yet another way to stiff their customers with some sort of additional fee for the X. They are the worst robber barons there are…..
You might consider choosing another carrier.
I abandoned them long ago, when they essentially wanted to charge me $100 more when I wanted to upgrade to the ip7. And that $100 was to my carrier charges, not the phone pricing. F them. Good riddance.
Because the ATT servers crashed, my delivery date was bumped to Nov 12-24. Bad form.
AT&T is the worlds largest virus! You should avoid these guys at all costs! Though Verizon, my iPhone carrier, wants $30 just to switch from my 7 to my X! Talk about a rip-off and it sends multi million dollars into their bank from such a rip off charge ! 7
