3.0 OS Questions

Was keeping up with the WWDC yesterday via macrumors. I can't recall a mention of whether or not 3.0 is still to include the Spotlight search feature. It's on Apple's site but I can't find a mention of it yesterday. Did I miss it?

Also, anyone know if 3GS will have the same docking port as 3G? I was a little annoyed that it was different from iPhone OG to 3G.

Thanks in advance~

New iPhone in June or update?

I'm thinking of switching to an iPhone. I hear that there is a new one coming out in June with a longer battery life. What are the other upgrades that are expected?

Is it worth it to wait? Or is this just a software update that I can do in June with it comes out?

I read about some updates here and people seem to think the update will be free for current 3G iPhone users.

Unlocked 3G IPhone

If already has been posted Ignore...

I was looking through the forms and did not see if this has been asked before. I would like to know if anyone that has unlocked the 3G Iphone for T-Mobile would know what the best data-plan to use on it with T-Mobile? I have heard from some friends that the best data-plan for it would be the one for the HTC Wing!

Let me know if you all heard different?

AT&T exclusive 5 year deal

AT&T has a 5 year deal to be sole carrier of iPhone. If iPhone was released July 2007 shouldn't contract end July 2012?

Why are there reports of the contract ending in 2010?

Any ideas

Have the Storm...thinking about the iPhone

I am currently with Verizon and I have had the storm for about 2 months now. Already they had to replace my phone due to software problems. This phone is turning out to be just a headache.

The iPhone 3G isn't looking too bad these days but I really do not want AT&T. Anyone know if I can buy the iPhone and force Verizon to unlock it and put my number on there? Will I lose any features if Verizon is on my phone and not At&T Or am I just gonna have to pay the cancellation fee and go with AT&T?

Dust under screen

Has any one else had this problem. Mine might be caused from a drop, which is the first thing the tech asked. Of course I said never dropped it. If any one else has similar situations can you please post if they reject your warranty claim or just replace it.

Storm, IPhone 3G or Omnia, that is the question.......

Ok People, I played with an IPhone 3G at the ATT store in New Brunswick, NJ for about an hour. I must say that I was VERY impressed. The internet browser is second to none! The call quality was crystal clear. I do understand that I was in the store and not out on the dock at the summer home in Pt. Pleasant. The camera doesn't have a flash, but that is minor. The touch screen is great.

The Storm was good, but not great. The browser is good, but not quite like IPhone. The video screen was awesome to say the least. It looks like HD on a phone. I didn't care for the push typing though. I like the touch of the IPhone.

I will test the Omnia, before making a final decision.

Right now, the IPhone is in the lead. I would hate to leave VZW ...
