  • 3G iPhone - June 9th


    We've had rumors, rumors, and more rumors, but now "someone very, very close to the 3G iPhone launch" has confirmed the 3G iPhone will be released June 9th at the WWDC Keynote.

    International users will have the phone within a few weeks of the US launch - not the previously rumored end of '08. Also notable, the iPhone will (at least in some countries) NOT be selling at a fixed price anymore, which means end users can get discounts based on signing contracts, adding data plans, etc. This is a good thing for those of you signing up with the Apple-sponsored carrier, but not so good news for us rebels (gotta have my T-Mo ). No word on how the Apple stores will be handling the fixed price vs subsidization pricing, but perhaps they'll have a set price, and AT&T will offer some sort of rebate with proof of activation. That is IF Apple carries the non-standard pricing to the States.

    Those of wanting to jailbreak/unlock the 3G iPhone need not worry - it looks like the launch of it will coincide with the 2.0 firmware, which hints it will be running said firmware. And 2.0 is already jailbroken/unlocked. A 3G modem may necessitate a fix on the unlock to work, but shouldn't be a major hurdle. Mod on, good people.

      Weird, what's going on with this thread, it seems to have changed a few times and a reply I posted is now gone. Anyway, there is still no installer that works with 2.0 correct? Also what ever happened with the IPSW Tool?

      Gizmodo is full of crap. They aren't journalists. And the last 2 builds of 2.0 have not been jailbroken. Unless it is a bigger secret than the actual release date of the 3g iPhone, we have no indication that the Dev Team or anyone else has succesfully accessed the filesystem of img3 betas.

      Does the 3g phone change anything for Tmobile users? As I understood it, it won't be any benefit for Tmobile users because of the bands ATT uses versus Tmobile ones. Can anyone explain it better?
