I emailed ATT about the iPhone 2 days ago and they final replied back. I asked them : What time on July 11 will the iPhone 3G go on sale? Will I be able to buy it when the store opens? Here is their reply Dear Mr. P******, Thank you for taking the time to e-mail the new AT&T regarding your inquiry about when on July 11 will our customers be able to purchase the iPhone. You are inquring about if the phone will be available at the time our stores open. I am happy to help you with your inquiry. We have not been advised when, on July 11, 2008, the iPhone will be available through our corporate retail stores as retail stores can have different hours of operation. You will need to contact our retail stores directly to obtain this information. You can view our store locations by going to http://www.wireless.att.com/find-a-store/. The new 3G iPhone, Mr. P******, which is scheduled to be available 7/11/2008, will harnesses the power of AT&T's broad and powerful 3G mobile broadband network. Please visit http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/specials/iPhone.jsp? To submit your e-mail address to find out more about the new 3G iPhone as soon as it?s available. You can also check 3G coverage availability for your area by using the 3G Coverage Viewer link or by visiting www.wireless.att.com/coverageviewer. AT&T's 3G network is currently available in 280 leading U.S. metropolitan areas; by year-end, the company plans to offer 3G service in nearly 350 metro areas. The 3G iPhone will initially only be available for purchase at company owned AT&T retail stores and Apple stores. There is a limit of three per customer for the 3G iPhone in AT&T stores and customers will be required to pay for the device when the order is placed. The phone will be shipped to the store in the customer's name. We will continue to sell 2G devices until they are out of stock. All of our current postpaid 2G iPhone customers that are in good standing are upgrade eligible and will qualify to upgrade to a 3G iPhone when it is available. Customers that do not currently have an iPhone must qualify for an upgrade to the 3G iPhone and can verify upgrade options via myWireless Account or by contacting Customer Service at 1-800-331-0500 when the new device becomes available. No-commitment pricing is unavailable for the 3G iPhone, which will only be available for purchase with a new 2 year service agreement. The new 3G device, Mr. P******, will be activated in store in both AT&T and Apple store locations. You must accept AT&T and Apple's Terms and Conditions, as well as select a 3G iPhone Data plan before leaving the store.

The 3G iPhone $45.00 per month Unlimited Data with personal and Corporate e-mail, Web, and Visual Voicemail can be added to your qualifying voice plan if you intend on using the 3G iPhone for access to corporate e-mail, business applications, or access to corporate intranet. The activation process for 3G iPhones includes a short tether process to unbrick the 3G device and will be performed in all AT&T stores (tether cords will be provided). Apple stores will also perform this tether process, however, in the event that your device is not tethered in the Apple store, your device will be inoperable until you get home and tether through iTunes.

Service discounts are available to qualifying customers for individual user accounts for voice and data plans on the 3G iPhone only.
