June 29th Official iPhone Launch Date
Jun 4, 2007, 11:06 AM by (staff)
Apple yesterday began showing television commercials which revealed the iPhone will launch on June 29. A 4 GB model will be available for $499 and an 8 GB model will cost $599. Purchasing either device will require a new (or renewed) two-year contract. Apple expects high demand for the iPhone, but will not allow the devices to be pre-ordered. The iPhone will only be sold on a first-come, first-served basis at Apple and AT&T retail stores.
PEOPLE CAMPING OUTSIDE OF COR AT&T STORES NIGHT BEFORE
If you need a regular phone, or are having problems with your phone, stay away on the 2...
attsalesrep said: the day apple stated they will launch the Iphone their stocked almost TRIPLED!
I don't know about the rest of it, but that part is bullcrap... Apple's stock has been going up, but it didn't "TRIPLE" ...
Why this phone won't matter
1) It will be purchased by the existing base more than the new customers. (Not as much growth as wanted)
2) A lot of people who purchase it would not subscribe to the MediaNet plan because of the WiFi. (Not as much data growth as wanted)
That's pretty much it. It will most likely be sold out and out of stock all over, but the question is how much data will Cingular gain, and how much increased voice revenue and subscribers will they gain?
Does Anyone Know if It Will Have IM
HOLY CRAP, YOU ARE ALL STUPID
And your telling me people are gonna wait in line to spend 500 on a cell phone that won't get them laid??????? get a life people, its just a cell phone.
Clearly, anyone posting here at 3:16...
Forget the initial price...
No MMS or IM!
There is just no way
I bet Lockline wont insure them either.
Time for American customers to catch up to the high end.
Like for star war!!!
Some dupe already paid $1350 for the iphone on pre-sale on ebay!!! Love to meet that loser!!
apple store details...
this dude told me it will come with a contract!!!! I think I'm going to get it, since i have been out of the contract since 1999... then I would sell it back on ebay!!! OH YEAH!!
iPhone contract details? Where is at&t?
I'm in ...
there's no rule saying all details need to be given so far in advance of the release date
and if you go with another carrier, go ahead and see if they're any different about giving info about devices and pl...
Maybe this is a good time to give it up
I'll get the 8GB iphone and sell the phone on ebay for $1500!!! HAHAHAHHAHAH that would be awesome!!!!!
Open a new line and purchase Iphone For 599.
Sell it on ebay for $1500
pay the $175 cancelation and still make $775
NO 3G data on iphone = SO WHAT !!!
EDGE is old technology, will it be software enabled HSDPA ??
1. As we all know EDGE is at the end of its life cycle. I've had EDGE for just about 2 years now. The WCDMA is the current technology, and HSDPA is starting to ramp up.
2. It is a well known fact that during this transition period, WCDMA/HSDPA will kill cell phone batteries due to the constanst switching between high speed enabled towers and their non-high speed counter part towers. This also causes problems with dropped calls.
But, ultimately...some day (I hope) Most towers will be HSDPA compatible. I assume that this transition will happen in less then 2 years. Hence my question:
Why should I buy the iPhone with i...
No contract pricing??
AT&T Data/Voice Plans...
Also, I'm guessing that the voice plans will be the same. If anyone has any information to counter that, that'd be helpful as well.
I also wonder if there will be a (slightly) discounted bundle that AT&T will offer combining voice, data, messaging, etc., now that more consumer level people will be using "smartphone" devices. I am sure that a lot of consumers would be cautious about paying $100+ per month to take advantage of everything the iPhone offers.
Any information would be much appreciated!
why the iphone wont fail
and im only on the phones for a couple hours a day
people want to know if they can pay more to reserve one
i even think it will be a waste of money but if people are willing to blow money on a ps3, they will be willing to blow their money on an iphone.
electronics are like the new crack
If they ever lower the price a couple hundred and make it available on other carriers, everyone will have this thing, just like the...
2 year contract?
So WiFI is back?
