AT&T sees "tremendous demand" for free Apple iPhone 3GS
If you are curious to know which device AT&T chairman Ralph de la Vega considers responsible for most of the new subscribers that have signed up with the carrier recently, it is the Apple iPhone 3GS. The executive says that AT&T is seeing "tremendous demand" for the phone which is free with a signed two-year contract. The device was originally launched in June 2009 and de la Vega says, "we’re getting more new subscribers coming on to the 3GS on the average than other devices. So we have an inventory sold out on that device."

While the Apple iPhone 3GS is the first of Apple's touchscreen handsets to be offered for free with a 2-year pact, you can also buy an 8GB version of the Apple iPhone 4 for $99 with a signed 2-year contract. As far as the brand new Apple iPhone 4S is concerned, sales are continuing to do very well and de la Vega says he is very optimistic about smartphone growth for AT&T's fourth quarter.
