    Congratulations on your graduation!

    Why not enjoy that fact instead of worrying about your upcoming iphone? This is the start of the rest of your life, dont ruin it with thinking about the materialistic things...

    ENJOY IT!!!

    The phone will be there when you get back.

    Yeah, I am sorta in a similar boat (well.....also on a cruise)....although I am on a 11 day cruise somewhere around Greece/Turkey/Rome/Naples for my honeymoon. At least I think have my BB Curve with my international blackberry email service on Tmobile on the ship.

    In a way, I am glad the 3g iPhone wasn't released Friday June 27 2008 at 6pm because I already warned my future wife/in laws that I would be late for the rehearsal dinner if the 3 iphone were to launch at that time.

    But the more I think about it, it's just a cell phone and you have a big event (graduation) and just enjoy it. You will remember the graduation for much longer than getting your hands on the next lastest and greatest thing.

    The cell phone will be there to be purchase when you get back. This is not like a videogame system launch where the systems are sold out for months at a time.

    I'm sorry to inform you that Apple and all its carriers will run out of iPhones by the time you return home. Not only that. There are no plans to replenish supplies until the next version of the iPhone sometime in 2009.

    Next time, stop enjoying life and just camp out at your local Apple store in the days leading up to a product launch. In the mean time, how'd you like an iPod Touch? :rolleyes:
