  • Rumor: New iPhone Available June 18th
    AT&T Reps Report High Sales Quotas for the month of June



    According to BGR, AT&T reps have reported an unusually high sales quota for the month of June, which leads BGR to believe that there is a good chance the new iPhone will go on sale on Friday, June 18th 2010. And I agree, based on the information at hand and the timing of WWDC.

    "Well so what if sales quotas are high?" you may be asking. What needs to be understood is that with the amount of sales required in one month, and the average amount of units sold each month, AT&T wouldn't be able to meet the unusually high quota for June if the iPhone were to be released a week later or in July. The extremely high demand for sales this month is a good indication that something is around the corner. Timing coincides with WWDC as well, so this could be it folks.

    Keep your eyes peeled, as June 18th isn't far away and WWDC is right around the corner.

If any stores quotas have been increased is because of the productivity from the previous month. Even knowing this I still hope it comes sooner then later.

      Last time I waited for my 3gs was less than an hour. My company is right next to ATT store and when I got out of the train at 8am, i am like the 5th person on the line to get it activated. I don't mind doing it again since Verizon is a block away from my company. haha

      may be a dumb question but i got tmobile...i know i have to wait for a j/b and unlock, but can you still just get a phone from apple at full price without att account? or do you have to have att to even buy at regular full price? correct me if i'm wrong here... i'd really rather not have to deal with ebay for the new phone...

      We have the same birthday! Yeah birth brothers!

      Oh the otherside, if the iPhone goes to Sprint OR T-Mobile I'll be more than happy to purchase it. Plus, T-Mobile would probably allow a data only plan, and I can use Skype or a VOIP service for 5 a month along with a txting app and save a bundle on my phone plans. Yay 4.0 multitasking!

      I can understand the Apple fanboys, but do we really have ATT fanboys too?

      I'm against Apple's heavyhanded stances towards App Store standards and their constant milking of OS improvements (3.0 for Copy/Paste? Really?)

      Gettin' mah EVO tomorrow. I'm just disappointed I wasn't aware of just how bad ATT's call quality was compared to the other carriers until recently.

      Anybody can be a fanboy of anything. It is just a matter of what they like. I mean look you are on a prime stance to being a EVO "fanboy". No matter what there will be someone that likes a product or service. There are hardcore people that standby a service or product. But there are a great many that just love the devices and if another compan comes up with something just as good they would move to that device. But for the time being those people agree with product/service because they enjoy it for the time being.

      Anyway, I got my 3GS in July last year and my upgrade date had changed from July 20th to June 21st, could be some truth here.....

      I can tell you exactly where the 18th comes from.

      The first iPhone was announced then released 5 months later.

      The 3g came out roughly 1 month after its release. It was a Friday.

      Te 3gs came out *11 days* after its announcement. It was a Friday.

      The 18th happens to be 11 days later on a Friday from this year's announcement. Moreover, there are several indicators that it will be out in the month of June and not even "late June", so the 18th seems the most reasonable.

      Basically this is not a rumor started by any particular source claiming to be close to Apple, just a common sense combination of the facts.

Mainly because I travel a lot and use Slacker radio wherever I go. I don't see how at&t thinks 2gb is enough. It's ridiculous and I'd love to see everyone jump ship just to boycott them and make them rethink their decision on that, but I know that would never happen.
      So basically your getting rid of a phone and provider you like simply to "spite" at&t/apple. Way to take a stand!

      Do you really think at&t will miss you? Do you really think there won't be 100 people to replace you? You know how many people DON'T get the iPhone BECAUSE of the $30 mandatory data package? Lots and lots.... so see ya later and good luck!
