    before work today I had gone in to pay my iPhone bill, I asked them ifid be able to upgrade this summer to the new iPhone and both girls at the rogers desk said they had a confrence call with all other rogers via satalite and said there was no new iPhone coming out this summer, just the 3.0 software.

    One is a very good friend of mine and wouldn't lie to me about it, they promised me there wasn't a new one. I dot know if

    I think at this point, it's virtually guaranteed that there's a new iPhone coming out. #1 reason why? Those who purchased the original iPhone, their 2 year contract is almost up.

    If there is no update needed (or just minor) to the carrier, the carrier doesn't need to know. Also if it's just being announced and not released on the 8th, they might not need to know until that day. Apple is very secretive... even with their vendors.

    I know that all the rumors seem like there a one coming out and I think there is however they did have a confrence saying there was no new iPhone coming.

    yeah, and who is "they?" Rogers people, i.e. people who wouldn't necessarily know one way or the other.

    There will be a new iphone. Bank on it.

    Yep. Anyone who knows Apple knows they won't go long without a refresh.
    At a minimum 32GB model and a slight case redesign.

    Maybe Rogers meant "there is going to be a new iPhone but we aren't getting it this year as we have a monopoly in Canada so there is no need"

    Apple releases everything around the same time every year. Look at iPods, MacBooks, imacs, and so fourth...and the iPhone 3G launch.

    I have a friend who works with AT&T who owns an iPhone himself. I go in there usually twice or so a month to talk to him about new phones. He shows me the ones that were recently released and then I ask him about the upcoming phones. On several visits, he didn't know that any of the phones I mentioned were even being made, let alone coming to the place he works for.

    The people who work at the stores usually don't know anything about upcoming products until either the company lets them train with them or they are released.

    Yep.

    They know about as much as the average customer.

    Now the store managers, that is a different issue. But the front line and Genius folks don't know anything ahead of time.

    The head of the Apple Marketing department said that they are going to update the iPhone every year.

    Apple executives don't give a lot of hard facts to the press. When they do, it means they spent a lot of time deciding that it's something they want to say and are sure about.

    That's not some random thought he had. If they say it in an interview, they mean it.

    To be more precise, we get 50 of them and half of them are by first time posters, like this one.

    No new iphone has been confirmed by some local cell phone store employees. This should be on the front page of Engadget ASAP.

    WTF

    Sorry guys, but I think this guy's right. I just asked my mom if there'll be a new iPhone and she said no. She's the one who taught me how to tie my shoelaces so if anyone would know it'd be her.
