One iPhone per customer rule lifted: Three iPhones for you at AT&T

AT&T has lifted the ban on purchasing more than one iPhone at a time, although they are requiring you to use a credit card when paying in the “West Region,” wherever that is.

But there’s a catch. We quote:

“Directors or VPGMs must approve customers who would like to purchase more than 3 iPhones via the exception process as defined by the market where the purchase is occurring.

This means someone in a nice dress shirt at an AT&T store can arbitrarily state that you can’t buy an iPhone for any number of reasons including, but not limited to, terrorism, your ability to dance, or sense of style. I look forward to reports of managers telling folks they can’t have iPhones “because it’s in the rules.”
