    I'm slightly annoyed but only because I'm impatient! :p I've waited a year for an iphone as I decided not to buy the 1st in anticipation of the 3G and overall, I'm just tired of waiting! LOL Just a month left...

    Don't forget, you also must sign up for a data plan which starts at $30 a month.

    You technically had to get a contract with a 1st gen phone too! Only some unscrupulous individuals found clever ways around that and took away cool features like activating at home.

    Getting a contract with AT&T along with an iPhone is not a new thing.

    Seriously guys, stop bitching about at&t... People have been bitching since before the first iPhone came out about that!

    Ya it's getting old. I switched from Verizon a little less than a year ago and I have been very impressed with how good of service I get with them wherever I go. They stand right there with Verizon. I would like to know more about the plans and how all of the pricing will work, as for being pissed at them. Not in the least. They are businesses that provide their products and services that come with a price.

    Haha.. The iPhone has always been like that one way or another. That is the point you aren't supposed to unlock the phone since AT&T is the official carrier. As far as waiting a month meh it sucks but you have to deal with it. There are better things to be pissed at.

    Also as far as buying the phone then canceling it thats your own deal. It's because of people cheating the system and unlocking the things that AT&T is starting to buckle down on this type of thing. (Not that I support AT&T because they are greedy ******* but it is their phone and if you want it you have to deal with it)

    I think that it's still ridiculous to lock the phone to a specific carrier. What about people who travel overseas frequently? I'm in the military and i do go on exercises for months to a year. And i could not bring my iPhone over there, pop in a local SIM card to use. ROAMING is very expensive.... I have no problems signing up with AT&T here but when i go overseas, they have to find a way to relax the rules and let me use another subscriber SIM card there....

    Yes, I'm quite disappointed about the long wait till July. I was hoping late June at the latest. While these delays are not of Microsoft proportions, they are starting to add up. :p

    Sign up for their World Traveller plan for $5.95 a month and you get $0.99 per minute for voice and $1 for each test message (in the UK anyway). I'm not sure about other countries. Don't use data as this is very expensive. Every time I go home to England I sign up and then cancel when I return to the US.
