    RUMOR TIME So one of our members here had an interesting conversation with the manager of his local AT&T Store.

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
    Uh oh I hope his manger buddy is clueless, those prices are STEEP.

    and more of the same, sounds scary

    I asked about the 3g phones and, well, I was told the same story... With the exception of the release date....

    I was told 599 and 699 respectively.... But he said there has been rumblings of a price drop within the first few months, like the first gen. iPhone
    More info
    hey so i work at ATT also, and iphone 2 is prob going to be coming out on june 27th. the guy that posted previsouly about the june 15th date is right about us being blocked from taking vacation from the 15th on. However, we will be taking a training prior to the iphone launch. The same thing happeend last year with the release of the first iphone. We were told we cant vacation from the middle of june until the middle of july. and we had a week training, and then the last friday of the month... IPHONE LAUNCHED. anyway thats all jus fyi

      how is it unfair? you aren't forced to buy a new iPhone it's up to you. You aren't forced to buy any phone. I love when people complain about what is and isn't fair for a company to release for you to optionally purchase... If you want to talk about not fair take a look at what Obama would like to do tax wise if elected.

      price discount or not they know people will buy them regardless. I know when I bought mine it was only a week or two later when the 16gb came out and for $100 I was able to swap but that was only becauseof the 30 policy. I'm going to continue modding, crashing,and remodding my 1st gen. iPhone

      I'd be happy with a Version 1 iPhone. $700 is too rich for my pockets.
      $500 for a 16-Gig unlocked phone is pricey enough!

      I'd buy mine refurbished 1 month or so after relaunch date. Good price cut for the same product.

      3G isn't worth it - when the nearest 3G is 40 minutes away.

      AT&T says I have good coverage at work when I can't get an EDGE or voice signal on the sidewalk in front of one of our buildings.

      GPS, a better phone, video recording, more storage (I have 40GBs of music) might make me a customer. After all, some day I will need a test unit for software development

      What is true is a new phone is coming soon. Apple reported this week that is has sold out of the current iphone. They would not allow a sellout to occur if they did not want to clear their inventory for a new phone.

      I got the word today.... Price starts at $299 and there is a $50 rebate for signing a 2 year contract or re-uping your current contract for another 2 years.

      I think this is all bs.
      I wouldn't need a 3G iPhone to begin with.
