    I will be at the Apple Store Sydney for the iPhone 3G Launch. (Apple Store, Sydney will be opening at 5 p.m on 19/06/2008)

    EDIT: Due to the high price of iPhone3G in Australia and the lack of 3G Mobile Coverage and Wifi Hotspots in Australia, I have decided NOT to go to the launch but get a iPod Touch off eBay instead :(

    No I don't. The store has it's grand opening on June 19th and the iPhone goes on sale on the July 11th. Although I'm not sure we'll be able to buy the iPhone at the Apple Sydney retail store (happy to be corrected if anyone knows anything different).

    Yes, I know I corrected my post above...

    Of course it will be on sale on July 11 at the :apple: Store Sydney, :apple: wouldn't be stupid and not sell it at they're own company store:rolleyes: this isn't Microsoft (MSFT) Remember...

    P.S I will be at the store between 4 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. with estimated launch time of 6 p.m. because that is the time when the 1st iPhone Launched.

    ^^^^Awesome.

    My only reservation is how they'll do it. Will they'll have both Vodafone and Optus in store to sign you up for a contract? Or will their staff be trained as both Optus and Vodafone resellers and sell pitch you both contracts?

    Will it be prepay or do I have to 'force' activate it in Australia ?

    Edit: I am a vodafone prepay user in Australia

    Edit2: I hate contracts :( (Because of my age I can not sign a contract)

    I dont think the Sydney Apple store will be selling the iPhone on contracts as they would have to support both Vodafone and Optus which would just complicate things which is not Apple's style.

    Anyhow if I find out they will be selling on Vodafone contracts i'll be there ;)

    Is anyone coming at all?
    So far I have not heard anything from anyone about line up; probably due to uncertainty if Apple Store Sydney will actually sell iPhone 3G...

    Please post reply if anyone is planning on lining up anyway..

    Short answer is no as I do not believe the Apple store will be selling the iPhone on 3 different carriers.
