    Your dumb I'm sorry. But you are. AT&T is not aloud to do anything about the iPhone. Its all apples deal always has been.... Duh....
    I'M dumb?
    Are you the son of an AT&T worker or something? I'f not, lay off the drugs and learn something.

    I went in asking these morons questions. I DON'T GIVE A **** IF ITS "APPLES DEAL" these people have 0 common sense.

    I finally said give me a new sim card

    and every problem was solved.

    My point was people in these stores are ignorant and don't know **** about their products or anything related to them.

    they read things from booklets and their computers, and thats all they "know"


    also before you call someone else dumb, how about not comparing hardware to an app (flash for camera and video), and also its "allowed" not "aloud"

    might want to check out what you type before you go around calling people dumb.

    Do you all seriously believe this crap? I work for AT&T. I have worked in the retail stores for 3 1/2 years. Nobody at att, except for maybe the big wigs who have been order by steve jobs to keep there mouths shut, know anything. We learned about the 16 gig iphone via email as the ups guy was walking in the door with them. A customer asked us about the price drop BEFORE our managers got the email. APPLE DOESN'T REPORT **** UNTIL IT HAPPENS!!!

    I'm calling b/s, I work in an at&t store and we do not have this info, not even our regional managers have this info, my educated guess is the iphone will be the same prices as they are now but our gen iphones will be discontinued. Apple will not make the same mistake as to give thousands of rebates after a price drop. And it would be stupid for at&t not to offer rebates on the new iphone with a new 2 year agreement, you know how many people would switch over to at&t if they offered this.. ALOT $199 for an iphone is the best deal you can get and it blow the voyager away, price and quality wise.

    Default Price Isn't Relevant
    A know a lot of people depend on an affordable price for the next-gen iPhone. As far as i'm concerned, price of the product isn't a huge deal, as long as the product is reliable, guaranteed to work, and it does the job as well if not better then advertised to. The only problem I have with the iPhone is and always will be the battery. Even with a warranty on the phone, it would be required for me to go phone-less for an amount of time while it's being repaired. Any amount of time without a phone is a bad amount of time. Give me a removable battery!

    There are a lot of basic features that the IPhone has failed to deliver on your right I didn't do research but I wish I would have. Lesson learned. Anyway, the IPhone isn't a marvel that Apple was selling it to be. Its good phone with good MP3 and video capabilities (minus those ****** edge youtube clips). Nothing else. The only true way to get some value out of it is to hack it. Which I'm trying to do now.

    I'm getting the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 the day it releases that is a phone worth drooling over. At least it has 3G.

    ... i am love using my 16GB iphone (jailbreaked!). all needed functionalities work very well for me.
    I following all new rumours about 2nd generation iPhone, there are many improvements why you could/should buy one.

    But luckily firmware upgrades make it possible to stay up to date )

    and summer 2009 , i will get 3rd generation one.

    I'll be getting one if it has GPS functionality with LOCAL MAP storage capability - meaning no online access required to see maps.

    read this RonMexico nothing as changed in the uk its still the same althou you will pay for a package the minutes will run out then you will pay for each 3g session and thats where the cost goes up

    A report by market researchers TNS shows that the number of people aspiring to buy third-generation phones has dropped from 7 percent in 2005 to 4 percent in 2007.

    While 20 percent of mobile phone users worldwide now have 3G phones, less than half of those use any of their advanced functions, such as video calling and high-speed Web surfing.

    The survey shows that 23 percent of people interviewed cited cost as the main block to using 3G, with a further 22 percent put off Wi-Fi capabilities for the same reason. Cost also proved discouraging for 21 percent of users when it came to downloading music tracks to their mobiles, and 23 percent in terms of surfing the Internet.

    "Cost is the quick fix solution, especially among those services already found interesting by consumers, such as music downloads and realtime TV," noted Hanis Harun, global director of TNS Technology on Wednesday. Only 9 percent of the 21 percent of people with mobile TV-capable phones use the service.

    Harun said operators were to blame for this slow uptake because "despite widespread publicity about cost-effective service packages… [they are] are still not giving their customers what they want — and people are having to purchase 3G packages that don't suit". He said the study showed flat-rate 3G packages to be the most popular, but added that "many customers are being forced into paying per kilobyte used or paying each time a service is used — which is not popular among consumers".

    Other factors, such as network speed, screen size and battery life, were also identified as notable issues, but much less so than cost.

    Ofcom's annual report into the communications market, released in August, showed that 3G has been somewhat of a failure in the UK, with none of the four major operators having as many as a million 3G subscribers. The regulator's report also revealed that those who had taken up the service were mostly ignoring its advanced features in favour of more traditional voice and SMS uses.

    And in July, Vodafone was forced to deny it was giving up on recouping its huge investment in 3G — a gamble made by all operators — after it slashed subsidies for third-generation handsets.

    You know no one is making you buy a new phone and throw the old one away.

    Exchange you old phone for a new one? they're not used car dealers. Everyone would want to do it, then what would they do with all the older iPhones they had?

    As long as the new phones are unlocked I don't care what they cost.

    If they offer a rebate for those who then take out an AT&T contract... seems fair enough to me.

    Looking forward to it!
