    Default [Rumor] 3g iPhone Will Make You Broke


    RUMOR TIME So one of our members here had an interesting conversation with the manager of his local AT&T Store.

So any hopes of getting the new phones cheap is all of forgotten...sorry to bare the bad news but i had to inform you all.

    There you all go
    Uh oh I hope his manger buddy is clueless, those prices are STEEP.

    and more of the same, sounds scary

    More info
    hey so i work at ATT also, and iphone 2 is prob going to be coming out on june 27th. the guy that posted previsouly about the june 15th date is right about us being blocked from taking vacation from the 15th on. However, we will be taking a training prior to the iphone launch. The same thing happeend last year with the release of the first iphone. We were told we cant vacation from the middle of june until the middle of july. and we had a week training, and then the last friday of the month... IPHONE LAUNCHED. anyway thats all jus fyi

    Hey didnt u know? Local ATT managers ALWAYS have teh inside inf0!
    When I said that I was 'king of forwards', you got to understand that I don't come up with this stuff. I just forward it along. You wouldn't arrest a guy who was just passing drugs from one guy to another?

    Default I stlilll gotta have it
    Its good to know the date it's coming out june 15th. that gives me 5 weeks to HUSTLE up the money because I have to have a 3G all black with crome buttons IPHONE.......have 3 and want this one, thanks for the head up on the time it will be released.....

    The news on the market is that customers will pay full retail for the phone, and then get a rebate when signing the 2 year AT&T Contract. It is how they are going to enforce contract signing (because as we all know, MILLIONS of phones were unlocked)

    regardless they should offer us current iphone owners some type of upgrade discount. Like let us exchange our current one for the new one and just pay the difference or a $50 deductable. It is so unfair for them to expect us to buy a new iphone evrytime and just throw away our old $500 iphone.

    throw it away? i'm not with mine, I'm turn it into a touch or set one of my parents up with it.

    i hope they DO give us current ATT iPhone users some perks of staying legit. (ie discounted/rebated phones)

    I expected this. 3g isn't worth it. Unless they make a super battery or something

    The rumor of a price cut in a few months (like last year) will seriously hurt opening day sales. Lets hope these prices are not the final ones. $700 is ok if its a 32GB and $600 for 16GB and $500 for the 8GB.

    Maybe a discount, but I highly doubt they will let you pay the difference.

    Doesn't happen with any phone (unless within the return period).

    i know it's unheard of but come on they need to make an exception for an exceptional phone don't ya think?

    I think it's very stupid to assume that Apple or ATT care or are gonna cater to us "First Gen" folks. They have absolutly no reason to.
    Fact is, 2nd gen is goign to sell just as well as first gen did.

    Also, no one "expects" you to buy the new one when it comes out but yourself.
    Do you really have to have the latest and greatest at all times? If so, you should be familiar with the costs of such a hobby.

    Nothing has changed

    I still want one

    Until they can be hacked for t-mobile I'm left in the dark anyhow. By that time, they will have come down in price.

    Probably not

    No, GPS requires a special chip.

    ill just give it a few months and they will drop the price 200$ when they upgrade the memory of the phone like the ipod has been doing for years
