  • Talked to Apple today
    I called Apple today and they told me that the Iphone will be available for purchase online and over the phone from them directly, and the price is going to be $499 4gb and $599 8gb. The guy also said that they will begin taking phone orders for the iphone at 6AM PST on the 29th.
    And no student discounts either

      They. Will. Be. Locked.

      Half the posts on this board are you asking if the iPhone will be locked.

      The other half are people answering yes, they will be locked.

      hahahahahahahaha

      At least someone hopes that it won't be like this.

      One question:
      Why do iPhone needs sim tray if it'll be locked & you will be able to use only one operator?

      so you can use your sims in other phones. for example you are going to a concert, you dont want to risk your iphone being damaged but you need a phone, pop out the sim throw it in another phone and you're good to go. Further by law a carrier has to let you unlock your phone . . . course that isn't enforced/in effect yet

      Umm, all locked GSM phones have sim cards.

      lol the purpose of a sim card is not solely to make it usable by other carriers... just because it has a sim card doesnt mean it SHOULD be unlocked, for those of us who will stick with AT&T we can pop our sim card into another phone in the event of our current phone busting out on us

      Well atleast they are offering an online purchase option. That'll beat standing in line, and can probably activate at the same time. Only prob is have to wait until the phone is shipped.
