  • 3g iPhone to be Released Second Half of June


    One of our members here sent me this message the other day:
    (remind me to check my messages more often)

    Hey whats up. I just wanted to let you know since you are the owner of the site. I work for a corporate at&t store. Today we all recieved an email from the regional manager saying that there is an event happening between june and july, and that we are not suppose to get any time off in that period. There were also some hints about a new phone being released. My guess is the 2nd version of the iphone will be releasing between those dates. Just wanted to let you know, maybe you can share with the rest of the peeps!
    This matches what many other sites are also reporting so get ready to run out, stand in line, and buy the new iPhone mid June. Don't worry your favorite AT&T employees wont be on vacation between June 15 - July 12 -- they'll be there waiting to take your hard earned $

      Hey

      It is really ridiculous how ATT is dealing with their existing customers for keeping APPLE happy. I was told by ATT that I will not be able to use my existing ATT SIM card directly into new iphone. Instead I need to reactivate by signing another 2 year contract. They won't even waive the activation charges. Besides my current corporate discounts on ATT plan won't be available with iPhone because that's what APPLE wants.
      So, there is no advantage at all by being existing ATT customer. Can someone tell me if I unlock/activate using ur guide, and use my existing ATT SIM card, would ATT know that I am using iPhone? IF yes, how? IF not, I'll continue with existing plan on an unlocked iPhone with no problems.

      thanx

      When Apple opens up with the SDK there will probably be much less need for any jailbreaking.

      If you unlock your new iPhone, you can simply pop in your current SIM card and begin using your iPhone on AT&T's network. I'm on my 3rd iPhone right now, and I'm an AT&T customer. I had a launch day 8gb iPhone, then I upgraded to a newer 8gb iPhone, and finally to my current 16gb iPhone, all with my original SIM.

      It's ridiculous how people feel they have a right to buy the new iPhone without any disadvantages related to current contracts.

So any hopes of getting the new phones cheap is all of forgotten...sorry to bare the bad news but i had to inform you all.

      There you all go
      Damn, now I really have to save up for it!!!
