Cingular Wireless, the mobile unit of AT&T Inc., has received about 1
million inquiries about Apple Inc.'s upcoming iPhone, AT&T Chief
Operating Officer Randall Stephenson said on Tuesday.

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

While Cingular is not taking advance orders for the iPhone, 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 in his keynote speech at the CTIA wireless
technology conference.

Apple has said it could eventually sell 10 million iPhones, which play
music and video and have a touch screen. The version with 4 gigabytes
of flash memory will cost $499, while the 8-gigabyte version will cost

AT&T shares rose 1 percent to $39.68 on the New York Stock Exchange,
while Apple share were flat at $95.85 on Nasdaq.
