AT&T: One Million Customers Contacted AT&T About Apple's iPhone


Cingular Wireless, the mobile unit of AT&T, has received about 1 million requests for information on Apple'snew iPhone, AT&T Chief Operating Officer Randall Stephenson said on Tuesday.

Cingular, which is being rebranded as AT&T, will be the first U.S. wireless service to sell the music-playing iPhone when Apple, the maker of the popular iPod music player, begins selling the phones in June.

While the biggest U.S. wireless service is not taking advance orders for the phone, it set up a section on its Web site inviting visitors to leave their e-mail addresses to receive information about the phone when it is released.

"One million people have asked us to call when this phone is available," Stephenson said during a keynote speech at the CTIA wireless technology conference.
