    O2 have exclusivity on iPhone for five years. I imagine they'll have the 3g phonebwhen it comes. Bear in mind they didn't have much of an EDGE network either, untill they got the iPhone.

    I think it will be on o2, plus I hope it is as I went on o2 for the iphone lol. The reason I think it will be on o2 is because apple will know it will piss off the existing customers.

    I asked in my local cpw store today about 3G in the iPhone. And they said probably not even this year as o2's 3G is not good enough

    They sell iPhones, why would you believe them? They want to sell you one, right now. I never take advice from the people selling me things, because they don't have your interests at heart.

    what about an australian release, we havent got the first iphone yet, weve got the best 3G network in the world, it covers about 87% of our country, hopefully Apple is saving the release here so they can release 3G here.

    you do realize that apple will release 3G in uk as well regardless because 3G phones can revert back to GSM or 2.5G or 2G when required.

    i would think europe and australi hongkong (basically where 3g is actually available to use and users actually use it) will get it first, or they should atleast,. if not il get mine imported :D

    Not good enough? Granted it appears to be less than 50% coverage, my friends with 3G o2 phones get full signal wherever they go around here. That's good enough for me. If I fall back onto Edge when I'm up some mountain in the Peak District then so be it, as long as I can get emails.

    3G is pretty good here. HSDPA is terrible though. Only London and a couple of other cities have it but it would be great if the iPhone had it and so got o2 doing an "edge" like upgrade to their network.

    To the topic at hand. I can imagine a 3G iPhone coming out at the same time or within a few weeks of the US 3G phone. Europe needed a 3G iPhone 2 years ago.

    i reckon the title of thread should read 'Release Date For 3G iPhone'

    I dont think there will be different release dates because:

    1)iPhone 16gb and 32gb came out same day in UK/US
    2)MBP and MB came out same day

    so why would iPhone be different?

    O2's 3G network is as good (if not better) than it's Edge network, and is getting bigger (which you would suspect isn't likely of the Edge network any more...). It wouldn't be a problem, and O2 have exclusivity for five years.

    I doubt there'd be much of a delay.
