    Yes, your friend in sales is the only one who knows. :rolleyes: They always trust the secret info to the friend in sales. Does he know when the iPhone G4 will be on sale? Also, tethering will be available when?

    Its just a rumor that AT&T extended for another 6 months.
    Noone knows for sure.

    I figured it was a rumor, but I know he works at AT&T and it was a random post done at 9 pm. You never know what dumb people let slip

    Also if I said a few weeks ago that my friend found a 4g iPhone in a German restaurant you'd say I was full of ****. So who knows.


    I surely hope not though cause I'd love to be on verizon or sprint

    My friend's cousin's girlfriend works for Dish Networks, and she says that the next iPhone will come with free satellite TV service thanks to an integrated 18 mm micro-satellite dish developed in secret by Steve Jobs and Gray Powell. The basic package (your choice of America's Top 120 or Dish Latino Dos) will be included with your AT&T contract, while premium channels like HBO and Starz will be available for an additional charge. I can't wait!

    Thats because that rumor came out this afternoon.
    Just cause he works for AT&T it doesnt mean he will have any clue about the contracts and agreements between Apple and his Employer.

    Oh, I thought that went without saying...

    I didn't know anyone else knew about that! Do you know about the 5.1 channel surround sound, too?

    Um... "And in case you need more of a reason to be skeptical of so-called analysts, Marshall e-mailed Appleinsider today and said that his comments on AT&T’s iPhone contract were purely speculative." (emphasis added)

    Gosh, I really really hope that rumor isn't true. I like AT&T just fine and won't be switching anytime soon, but competition is good.

    Pshaw, that's old news. The real surprise is the Lightpeak-connected video output for hologram projection. Sources say it will have nearly 70% of the resolution displayed by R2-D2 in the original Star Wars.

    Well, isn't Lightpeak implied by the addition of R2-D2's Universal Computer Interface Arm?

    Yes, but here's the kicker—the arm will be unlockable even on baseband 5.12.01!
