    I manage my excitement by wondering why people think that things like this warrant a new thread.

    Sucks that I won't even be here launch day :( I have to wait until July 13th to get the iPhone 3G. My friend is rubbing it in my face that he will have it before me, even though he doesn't even know the features of the damn thing..

    Not being able to sleep because the iPhone 3G comes out in a week seems a bit much. if that is you, I would possibly consider some help :D I am excited, but sleep is not a problem. One week is only a week.

    The passed 3 months i have canceled parties, work, sporting events, vacation time to sit on my computer and hit refresh for more Apple news.


    I'll be in line at 3AM, but i'm not really excited over a phone until then.

    I am going to have to check myself in MR/iPhone 3G rehab. It could be a long stay.

    I certainly didn't mean to be rude, at least. How old are you, OP? Sounds like a complication brought upon by a rush of endorphins leading to a low-band loss of cognation in the prefrontal...

    You're lusting over a phone. Yes, Apple is the end-all, do-all, be-all of tech. I know that. Dreams of a phone are what Freud would call, "Was haben wir hier?!"

    I don't have much room to talk, though. I didn't want a first-rev iPhone when it was announced because of the cost (same as the first iPod) and because newer versions would be cheaper and better (3G iPhone), but I won one anyway. Go figure.

    Ok now you're being silly. :)

    Just prepare to be disappointed. (The highs of anticipation are very seldom justified.)

    Good that you have worked hard for something — and i hope you get a lot of good use and enjoyment out of your iPhone.

    But life is so much more. :D

    lol. i know its not everything in life, but im sure i will like it. i have used the first iPhone, since my friend has it, and i like it very much. i get this rush over anything really, like, new computer parts, wondering if i got a good grade on that test (i usually do :p), basically anything thats new. and i get excited once i know i can afford to get it, like when the iPhone 3G was announced, i did not care. at all. iPhone shmy-phone. but i work for/help out my parents to get what ever i want, in this case, the iPhone. My parents promised me that if i list thier merchandise on thier web site 100+ items and sell my current phone (razr2 v9), they will get me what ever i want. so yea. i sold my razr2 for $202.50. and now that i know i will get the iphone, im going nuts. lol.

    14. like i said, im not just lusting over a phone. i worked hard and now i get my reward after a long period of time. and its more like dreams of me owning an iphone, not just like an iphone with a black background and i keep going through the specs of the phone. lol. its kind of like dreaming of your goals.

    Hey Tallest,

    Are you planning on getting the new iPhone ? I know that the new 3G iPhone wont be unlockable for a while (perhaps 2+ weeks before its unlocked) and i know how much you hate at&t.

    Just curious if your planning on coming over to the dark side. :D

    "I wish I was little bit taller,
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I had a girl who looked good
    I would call her
    I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
    and a '64 Impala"

    if your old enough to remember this one hit wonder...

    It depends on the price for which I can purchase it.

    Cost of subsidized AT&T iPhone+first month of service+me taking data off the day after I activate+ETF after one month is still less than buying the unsubsidized* iPhone, BUT I'm going to college (IRELAND, my first semester), so I need to save my money... for my tricked-out, top-of-the-line, bleeding-edge Nehalem Mac Pro. I have ALMOST enough right now on my own, and my grandmother is going to give me enough for it on her own, anyway (great woman, her), so I don't know.

    There's been talk of Apple selling at the subsidized price regardless, but that's crazy (enough to be real? We'll see.)

    *Here is my take on the "no-contract" iPhone. You know, the one being sold for $599 and $699. Okay, so AT&T is selling an iPhone without a contract, but It's still locked to them. "Okay," you say, "That's fine. I'll just buy it and unlock to use with Centennial or T-Mobile. Piece of cake! It's not even a lie!" BUT. BUT. Remember that crap about there being a penalty on phones not activated within 30 days and that not making sense since we have to activate in the store? Well, that 30 days "penalty" crap applies to the unsubsidized iPhones. You will have to do something involving AT&T with those iPhones within 30 days... whereas if you cancel your contract after 30 days, you get to keep your iPhone, it's cheaper, and then you can unlock.
