    End of October, they weren't kidding.

    It is 3PM EST on Friday and it still hasn't been launched.
    Expecting to see it right before midnight on Oct 31st.

    What is the hold up?

    I have no clue, but I am SO ready for this service...wanted this more than the new iPhone and iOS 5. Come on apple, give it to us today so I can play around with it all weekend...

    Anyone knows if it's going to be US only at first?

    i don't think any one knows. if anything, NZ would technically get it first, just like apps. I'd imagine it'd be an all-round-timing thing, though

    It's really not all that great unless you want more music on your device than it has storage for.

    I fixed it for ya. :)

    I'm personally really looking forward to it. I have a 12,500 iTunes library so having those ready to play anywhere is totally cool with me.

    My problem isn't so much the product itself, I think it is a very neat idea.

    My problem lies with the wireless companies that have decided to nickel and dime customers with broadband costs, I mean its like we are in the early 90s where you got charged by the hour.

    Its nice to see sprint at least having an unlimited plan (even though there are quite a few complaints about speed), I'm hoping Sprint pulls in enough people that other carriers will follow.

    As it stands now, this 2GB a month limit (which is what 2 HD movies, ~225 256kbps songs!) is just crap. To pay that much money (for bandwidth) and get so little should really be a crime.

    I sure hope Apple doesn't have any overload issues with their servers because you could imagine how much strain this update would put on the servers at least in the beginning.

    I'm personally on Wi-Fi almost 100% of the day and if I'm not, I'm grandfathered in to unlimited data. As you can tell from previous features like FaceTime, Apple likes to add features that carriers can't even keep up with.

    I'm all for new features, it just seems the carriers are always playing catch up.

    Unfortunately, what will probably happen is Sprint discontinuing their unlimited tier.

    They will. :(
