Hey folks, I don't know what it's worth, but I just spoke to a O2 Germany representative and he assured me, that o2 Germany will be the exclusive carrier of the iPhone in Germany. He said that it is expected before christmas (ok we already knew this) and that he didn't have any more details at the moment besides the fact that it WILL be offered with a 2-year contract just like in the us. Just for those curious to why I called them, I was going to quit my contract with them because I assumed T-Mobile would be the carrier for the iPhone, but apparently I was wrong. Besides, I don't think that they would assure you such a thing if it wasn't already in dry cloth. I sure hope he's telling the truth, but he didn't have a reason to lie to me, because he put my contract on hold until the iphone comes out, which would be pointless.... just my 2 cents.
