Speaking at the NXTcomm communications conference in Chicago, new AT&T Chief Executive Officer Randall Stephenson said that around 40 percent of inquiries to the company about the iPhone have come from people that are not current AT&T wireless customers. The company revealed in March that they had received about 1 million requests for information on the iPhone, which launches at 6:00 p.m. local time, June 29.
