In its response to a letter from the Federal Communications Commission questioning why Apple rejected an official Google Voice application for the iPhone, an AT&T executive claims the company had no say in Apple’s decision. “Let me state unequivocally, AT&T had no role in any decision by Apple to not accept the Google Voice application for inclusion in the Apple App Store,” said Jim Cicconi, AT&T senior executive vice president for external and legislative affairs. “AT&T was not asked about the matter by Apple at any time, nor did it offer any view one way or the other.” Responses to the FCC letters, which were sent to Apple, AT&T, and Google, were due today.
