  • iPhone 3G is OFFICIAL and $199 - flush headphones, black, metal buttons, same screen
    Apple announced today the 3G iPhone.

    Photos from Engadget, Mac Rumors, and Gizmodo:








    Some features:
    built in GPS
    black back, new design
    5 hours 3G talk time
    7 hours video playback
    10 hours 2G talk time
    300 hours standby


    I'll be updating as we go.

    $199 for the 8GB model, $299 for the 16GB model - launch date is July 11

    edit: Apple and AT&T stores are confirming that the 3G iPhone will be sold for $299 and $399 without contract (for 8 and 16GB, respectively), and $199 and $299 with a contract.

    edit again: source proved to be completely false, sorry.


    The 16 GB model will also come in white.

    The Apple store, which was down earlier, is now showing pictures and has the page up for the 3G iPhone.







    Apple has posted more pictures in their gallery for the 3G iPhone.

      I finally gave up on that platform when the i760 lagged, and then when it came out was nothing more than the same old thing in a new shell.

      After using the iPhone for a year, when I even look at a WM phone now, the sheer thickness of it, and the tiny screen size coupled with the low resolution - I just could never go back to that.

      But, if you cook your own ROMs then you are uniquely in a position that most others reading this forum aren't in. Do what works for you.
      i like the voyager and the 3g better than both!

      The Voyager isn't a Windows Mobile phone. Never heard of a phone named 3g.

      I think you guys need to stop just checking the US websites and check the UK ones like O2.co.uk

      Anyone want a non contract 2nd gen iPhone...o2 in the UK will be selling it on Pay As You Go and even on Business contracts.

      It will be free on the top 2 tariffs.

      Well i called the AT&T store in my area the other day to see when they are opening on July 11th.

      The guy there told me they'll be opening the doors at 0900.

      I asked him a few more quick question:

      He said last iPhone release people were lining up at 2100 the day before.
      also,
      He said they don't tell them how many iPhone's they will receive for release day.
      Finally,
      I'm not the primary account holder but i pay the bill so i asked him what I'll need to get it. He said i just need the expiration date of the accountholders drivers license! I can't wait! I'm going to my cousin house(right by the store) the night before and I'll be waiting!

      The more I think about it, the more I doubt picking up the new one will require waiting in line hours before the store opens.

      I'm still digging for more information on that, because I want the phone that day.

      I haven't seen it yet on any part of the forums and am wondering if anyone has any idea if they are going to be releasing the phone at 6pm like they did for the first one.

      Can't wait to get it either way just curious if apple is going to pull it's normal B.S.

      We still have to buy and activate these in store right? No more Ebaying the phones the day of the release for high prices? By the way I'm in the U.S.
