HAL iPhones Sell Other Phones

An observation:

When I was at the company office in Calgary, almost everyone was issued a BlackBerry, and I only remember one person who had an additional, personal phone. She had one because she wanted a phone with a US number.

When I was in a HAL office in Pennsylvania, the company-issued iPhones were everywhere, and almost everyone in my classes had also purchased a personal phone.

AT&T and Verizon have to be loving this.

    Why do you think folks in the US want to sport two phones? Do you think it might be more related to a company-policy concerning personal use of company hardware?

      I’m fairly certain company policy is a factor. Both sets of phones have proxies that block web sites. I think the PA users feel that their phone is supposed to do more and are less satisfied with what the company offering is allowing them to do with their phones.

      One user had a personal iPhone to go along with the company iPhone, but most opted for Android phones.
