    I will gladly sell them my 1st gen once I get the new one

    Where do you get this $450 fee from? That sounds like pure speculation which is what most of this thread is I guess. Just because someone that works at Apple/At&t says so doesn't mean it's true. Take that with a grain of salt.

    Key question: When you early terminate do they unlock the phone? It would seem to me that would be a MUST. Makes sense, since I recall the Euro phones being around $750 unlocked. If they don't unlock the phone for that price, then they are leaving you holding a phone which cannot be used? Not consistant with most cases. My experience is when you terminate, most carriers furnish upon request the unlock codes so you can port phone (fully paid for) to another network.

    thats the point of a deposit/early termination "you leave use, we will rape and pillage your family!!!" ..... "oh and leave you with a paper weight " unless you know how to unlock it, which most everyone does now..

    i just sold mine on ebay for 275,

    if this is the way it is going to work, pay 100 and 150 + contract, the iPhone will again fail in europe at its second attempt.

    when will they realise, that phones with technically better specs come FREE with contracts.
    FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE

    they still cant compete in europe efficiently with these prices

    So you think they don't have a plan for everyone who will buy and then cancel next day?

    of course they will. They will dangle you over a crocodile pit by your balls (or ovaries if you are a women) till you decide to just stay with them..

    UPDATE: And you will be required to activate your phone at the store. From AT&T spokeswoman Sarah Andreani:

    When customers purchase their new 3G iPhone, customers will activate the device in the retail store. This is the traditional wireless activation model that our customers are very familiar with. In-store activation should take just a few minutes and customers will be able to leave with their iPhone up and running. This will be especially helpful if any questions or issues arise during activation.
    UPDATE: And the only place you'll be able to buy the phone is in a physical AT&T or Apple store. The 3G iPhone will not be sold on either att.com or apple.com.

    I'll go ahead and say you're an idiot for not reading the thread because that link is found on the very first post. In fact, it's detailed on the very first post and discussed thoroughly throughout the thread unless you meant the update which has also been posted and discussed.

    That, I didn't say. Just the value you have stated is just not known anywhere and seems like a made up price. Even your brother or friend or whoever you mentioned would not have this info yet. Like someone mentioned, there is probably a process to deal with the multiple cancellers out there but we have no idea yet.

    I just called my local AT&T store about the new iphone and what do I do if I have an old one. He said I cant get the 199 or the 299 price with new contract because I am an existing customer and I will have to buy the phone at full price, whatever that will be. Is that true or does this guy just spouting off without really knowing? I hope so cause I want to do the new contract for 299.00 so I can get a new phone because my current iphone has a crack in the screen.

    I wonder if apple will drop the rediculous price of 250.00 to fix your screen now that the phone is cheaper.

    You're welcome given how I've gone ahead and posted about 3 thread full of factual information, have quoted and answered questions endlessly throughout the day and have been nothing more than a super awesome noodle boy.

    He doesn't know what he's talking about. Extending your contract by 2 years is the same thing as getting a new contract. You'll have no problem getting a new iPhone for $299.

    congrats from myself and the rest of the happy noodle boy fanboys out there.

    i got so caught up with this whole thing i forgot the link to the first page my bad, the flamin was due seein as people are gonna be pissed right now.

    fingers crossed that the UK wont be the same, but doubt it will be different

    i now have no iphone

    $30 for the data? My Media Max with 3G is $15 now. I'll wait for a google phone.

    There is no way in the world that everyone buying an iphone will have to spend 30 minutes in the store having their iphone activated. It would take a solid year just to sell the number they think they will sell if that was the case.

    nahh if apple is going to sell them at there stores u can get them without activation

    Their store received a memo stating information about the new iphone two hours after the keynote finished. Corporate has to let their employees know what is going on with everyone calling asking about contracts, reserving, and data plans.
