    The iPhone may be announced on Monday, but I still think we have weeks to wait before they go on sale. No boxes have been delivered to o2, AT&T etc (we'd know about it with all the employees on here), the staff would have been told to make sure they are available to work on Monday and we would have just heard more things about a release of the iPhone on Monday.

    My guess is that we here about it on Monday and it's released June 19th.

    Cuz two months of iPhone non-availability would be a smart move.

    I am getting tired of everyone's guess on when they will be released. The can still be delivered today, Saturday, and anytime Monday morning.

    Some real negative thinkers on MR.

    haha yeah SR...


    But gloss...

    First of all. You mean weeks.

    Second of all. Apple needs to train and deploy these new iPhones to AT&T stores. This is easier said than done.


    Trust me, it's June 27th. I'd kill myself if it wasn't. I've had that in my sig since February :D

    why do people think all this training is necessary? :confused: the first gen iphone was simple enough for my grandmother to figure out. it's not like the new phone is going to be much more complicated.

    Well, it's been unavailable at the online Apple Store and running extremely short at physical Apple Stores since the 10th of May, meaning that if they wait until the 27th of June, it will have been six weeks of severe shortages of one of their flagship products. Pretty shameful.

    I'm personally putting my chips on end of next week or beginning of the week of the 15th.

    These threads are humorous. I seriously believe some of you will spontaneously combust if you cant get your hands on an iphone on Monday.

    Is it that important to you? If the release date is the 20th or 27th will you spend your time camped out in eager anticipation?

    My vacation days are spent on the beach, where there are bikinis, not in line waiting.

    Okay, but what happens when you try to do some multitouch gestures on the bikinis?

    Apple really doesn't give a ***** if your grandma knows how to work it out. The AT&T / Apple employees are the ones who need to KNOW and SELL the iPhone to make it work.


    Not everyone walks into the AT&T store that planned on buying the iPhone. People go in their to buy a $100 phone and they end up getting the iPhone. There are many people who only know what the iPhone is, but not everything it does.

    Pre-order? It all depends on supply and demand. I'd put my name down if I knew it would be hard to get at the start.

    I really just want a day to plan on, is all. I'll be happy if I can get a date and it's not 6 months away.

    Very funny about combustion - I nearly fell off my chair. You are right I think
    SJ will be public enemy #1 if he does not mention iPhone 3G on Monday.
    Given the fact that ATT employees cannot take vacation from June
    15th it is entirely possible that people will be able to order it right away
    on Monday but it will not be delivered or in stores till 15th.
    Apple will want to shut down the stores, do their marketing blitz and
    of course whip up mass frenzy

    PS - Does anybody think there will be week 25,26,27 issues etc ?

    I think we can safely say that we can't safely say anything much until Monday.

    as much as i would love for the new iPhone to go on sale next week, i still think there is no way it will. the following week i think it will. the week of june 16th, sometime in the middle towards the end IMO.

    for what its worth...............


    during the march 6th townhall event Steve Jobs himself said that they wont be releasing 2.0 until late June........ i dont think he will release the 3G iphone without releasing 2.0.. and i dont think June 9th would qualify as late June.
