  • [Rumor] 3g iPhone Will Make You Broke


    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

      700? I haven't laughed that hard in a while.


      3G is NOT worth that much $$ to me.

      3G, GPS and 32GB storage would make me pay $700. Anything less would make me wait for a price drop probably. I am looking forward to the 2.0 firmware and App Store more than anything!

      With 3g could you access itunes to DL music without wifi?

      I dont get SO big differences,I have GPS in a car-why do I need it on the iPhone? I have 8GB storage,(even I cant fill 6GB))),ok,they want me to pay 400-700$ for faster edge? LOL. I somehow can survive without it.... ))) I would buy it,ONLY if it will be thiner and if it will come in a WHOLE black color,otherwise-why do I need it,LOL?

      No one is expecting you to buy a new iPhone every time they release a new one, it's your choice. I have a 16GB 1.1.4 iPhone and I'm very happy with it, I can't see it being reasonable for me to go out a blow $700 on such an upgrade. (Plus t-mobile only have 3G network in New York, and it's 'beta')

      this is clearly a move to improve their sales in the european market. nothing more, nothing less.

      cars here dont generally come with sat nav as standard, and every single other phone has 3g.

      for once, i dont think this move is for the americans among us..... so don't buy one....

      Did you always got a new coming Nokia phone or Samsung phone cheaper because you had an elder version?

      I don't think so.
      Sure i would love it as well to get it cheaper but lets face the truth, old Nokia N95 owners also got no discount when the new N95 with 8GB came out.

      Yeah AT&T managers also told me the 2nd Gen iPhone was coming out in January of this year last November.
      And that unlocked phones cant use the camera or internet.

      He told me that the new 3g would be priced just like how the iPhones first were released. He said I was crazy for even considering that AT&T would allow a discount on a brand new iPhone. You heard the story about how Verizon wouldn't allow Steve Jobs control the priceing on the phone, what makes you think its any differnt with AT&T? Your gonna have to pay to play guys, what sucks is soon as this phone is released our old EDGE phones won't be worth crap.

      but i wouldnt know.




      and yeahh i dont think that managers would know this much information with over a month to go until the release.
      doubt managers would have this info as i worked for ATT and my manager was never informed of price drop, in fact we found out day of the drop, and we saw it online, not even the district manager had any idea....

      Before the iPhone was released, I went to three different AT&T stores, and every single one of them said there would be a discount with a two year contract.

      lol.
      AT&T workers don't know anything,
      that's how Apple wants it.
      =D
