Does anyone know?
Call Steve Jobs. I'm sure he'll know. We sure don't.
My guess is 6pm, like the last iPhone. If I remember correctly they closed the Apple store at 4pm and reopened at 6pm to sell the iPhone
They haven't posted a time yet. Assume if they don't, that it will be when your store opens (10am?).
I was wondering the same thing.
I really need it to be when the store opens! so crossing my fingers on that one!
Now that I think about it, a 6PM launch would be kind of dumb. My new guess is that it's gonna be available at open.
Unless Apple and ATT have an army of employees waiting to activate all of the iPhones purchased on the 11th, there is no way a 6pm launch could be possible.
With this "activate on site" program implemented, I can't see them waiting till 6pm like the G1 IPhone, there would be complete chaos..
I'd guess it would be on sale as soon as the store opens..
According to the AT&T policy posted here, the logistics of the iPhone 3G launch will mirror the launch of the original iPhone. Sounds like 6:00 PM to me.
Support logistics for launch day will mirror last year's iPhone launch"
There is some logic for the Friday 6PM (local time) launch. Friday is the SLOWEST news day of the week and by doing it at 6:00, Apple can be sure the 6:00 news will be there covering the launch... and all that FREE advertising...
Support Logisitcs - security, parking, staffing, crowd control, etc. Doesn't necessarily mean the same time of day.
6:00 pm - Apple likes 6:00 launches.
I just talked to an AT&T rep and he said it will go on sale "as soon as the store opens" - and an online store will follow!
(the first part was in regards to student/corporate discounts)
me: do you know when pricing information will be available?
Thomas: It should be available in about 1 week when we get the final pricing set.
me: alright, and do you know what time on july 11th the iphone will go on sale?
Thomas: As soon as the store opens they will go on sale, the online store would also follow suit.
me: okay, so it won't be 6pm like last year, it'll be 10am or whatever time the stores open?
Thomas: Yes, it should be available at when the store opens up.
Key word since he doesn't really know.
Your going to quote "Thomas" at the indian call center in Bangalore when they tell you 6 PM?
i personally think 6:02 like last year in the uk simply wont work as people will be there all night
i think they might even open earlier that usual!
i read somewhere on this forum staff have to be in at 5am for a 7am launch...
just wait and see...the website(s) will be updated when it is all confirmed...
AT&T doesn't outsource. Their call centers are in the US and paid/trained directly by AT&T. On the off chance you get someone that might sound Indian that doesn't mean that they are in India. I've never gotten an Indian cust service rep and I'm an RSC at a AT&T store so I call Cust service alot... lol
