    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.

      Let's hope so, even though I won't be able to afford it until the end of June as I'm spent up for my holiday... Doh!

      I'm very selfishly hoping this date is accurate. Upgrade eligibility on the 20th, and I leave on a cruise July 2. I want my new iPhone on vacation!

      The definition of fanboy isn't simply being a fan. It is not seeing, or not wanting to see, the flaws in the thing which you are a fan of. That and justifying those flaws in ridiculous ways).

      And yes, having to listen to the "Apple" folk with Apple stickers on everything they own, talking about all things Apple and how great the iPhone is. What a waste of a day!
      I find that to be the most entertaining part of the experience. The MOB of people, the news cameras...everybody so excited for a PHONE!

      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.

      Go to websites and forums that are for modding Verizon and Sprint phones....see how many people there bash their carriers. Nobody...nobody will ever be 100% content with their service.

      Hey i have a question. Is there any way possible for me to get a contract with ATT right now but not get a phone, and just wait till the iphone 4g comes out then get it. So i don't have to have the limited data plan? Or do i have to buy a phone if i get a contract?

      So if the 4G comes out on June 18th, what is the best "guesstimation" for when an unlock for the 3.1.3 will be out?

      Just called AT&T and mentioned a new iPhone he kept correcting me saying there is not going to be a new phone just software. He said the guy left a modified iPhone at a bar which is fake. Lol so I asked him when my upgrade date is he said June 18th. This date is looking better and better

      That is where I will be purchasing the day it is announced. That is how I got my 3GS delivered on the day it was available in stores.

      Yeah thats exactly right, I'm getting rid of the iphone because I'm not going to support at&t's cause. I have nothing against apple, other than the fact that they really need to find a second carrier to partner up with here in the U.S. Also do you know how many other phones out there require a $30 data package. The iPhone isn't the only phone out there that requires that you know. Will at&t miss me? Probably not, but I bet if people would take a stand and leave them, instead of being perfectly ok with the fact that at&t is screwing people that wish to tether and new customers over, then yeah I bet they would miss all of us, and they would rethink their whole tiered pricing plans and what they think is best for their customers. Personally I want to be able to use the phone as advertised. Good luck doing your multitasking and listening to Pandora radio at the same time, and trying to keep it all under 2gb. Also enjoy paying an additional $10 for each gb of data while I'm on another carrier only paying $30 for 5gb....so see ya later and try not to drop your next call while you're at it.

      Just called AT&T to check my date: mines 7/22/2010...kinda sucks! How much would the new phone be with an upgrade? Would it be worth it to just sell my 3GS and buy it out right or just wait extra month and get upgrade price? People have been emailing and calling about my 3GS already

      I'm wondering if sales will drop with AT&T's new data plans.
