The AUSTRALIAN iPhone 4 launch thread

    Hi guys

    Went to the Apple store in Sydney yesterday and asked an employee whether we're still on for 30 July and he said 'as far as I know, yes'. I think it's bizarre that there's no confirmation whatsoever on apple.com/au

    Normally there's a pre-order button, to say the least, or even an aknowledgement along the lines of 'coming XX July' or something like that. I'm getting the impression that it's not definitive yet and I wouldn't be surprised if the launch was pushed back, like it happened with the iPad. I'd be very interested in knowing why though. Lack of stock, or something more sinister?

    No word from Telstra/Voda/Optus on launch date either, let alone pricing. What's your gut feel?

    They should make a specific forums section for these threads. I'm about to make "The African iPhone 4 release thread."

    Rename the thread title to Australasian ;)

    I'm still awaiting to see if I can get reception at my place on XT (3G phone carrier), and if so, I'll get the iPhone ASAP.

    Optus contacted me to order the new micro sim + adapter but other than that no word on iPhone 4.

    Optus Email

    I just got an email from Optus saying that they will be opening their flagship stores in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth from Midnight on Thursday 29th July for people who pre-register for iPhone 4 launch. That could be an indication that this is the launch date.

    Telstra have announced they are launching on the 30th. Not all stores will have stock in week 1 though. I'm on sick leave at the moment, but apparently the point of sale will be arriving soon (but not to be displayed until 30th or stock arrive)

    Supposedly 3 and Vodaphone will be releasing their pricing on Wednesday said their twitter accounts, and a possible Thursday for Optus?

    I'm still kinda thinking about going to Optus on Friday and getting one, but the antenna issues are something I can't afford to deal with. I hope it works better on Optus than it does on AT&T.

    yeah and looks like apple online will be the last place you can get the iphone 4 at this stage - unless it changes tonight - there is no ordering from apple directly for a delivery by friday

    There's a video on YouTube of a guy testing it with all the Australian major network sim cards... This was the original 4.0 software though.

    I'll be in the city at midnight on Thursday but I can't get the phone then cos you get 2 months free if you order online with Optus. Can't wait!

    Can't wait to get it tomorrow.
    What carrier are people going with??

    I'm currently with Telstra, I was thinking of switching to Optus, but not so sure now

    Anyone know if we get a free bumper/case at the telco's or do we have to go to Apple direct?
