  • 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.

      One of my clients works for AT&T, said that they received an internal email that stated " no vacation time allowed" from June 2nd to June 15th.

Sooooo take it for what its worth.

      I myself on the other hand am thining I may want to hold off on the 3G for a few months. I mean if Apple is releasing as many units as they say they are WORLDWIDE, how is that going to affect build quality. Not saying Apple puts out a bad product, but millions of phone being put on the street across the globe in a matter of weeks kinda has me leary.....
      well today is the 2nd... i was in the mall and decided to take a trip to the ATT store. i asked if they had any information on it hoping they would mention something about the shipment(assuming that the june 2nd rumor was true). they told me that they havnt recieved any defenite information but to expect it around late june early july. they said that they would know atleast a week in advanced so im guessing that there will not be a June 9th release, only the announcement. However, they did say that it will have GPS, i dont know how reliable that is but ive heard it numerous times so its definatly plausible.

      Not sure if this has been asked, but will the 3G work with ATT Mobile TV? I think thats the only feature, data-wise, that would have me upgrade.
