    Well does it typically come out very soon after being announced? Can you tell me the past of this? (3G, 3GS)

    The 3GS was about 10 days. Idk about the other ones. Thats one thing that hasn't been consistent, WWDC and release dates.

    The way the trend is headed if you were to graph it all out, it should be released within hours of WWDC.

    But I say ... Tuesday.

    I was thinking the same thing. However, not within hours because of product distribution after NDA lifts. Think more a day after. Also, since WWDC kicks off a Monday, Tuesday timeframe looks plausible.

    Don't they always release on a particular day of the week? Seems I read that somewhere (most likely here.) But perhaps that pattern broke. Dunno...just thinking here.

    They have done that for everything sans the iPhone and iPad.

    The dates dont seem to jive. If the at&t employees are not allowed to take vacations only for June, and the WWDC is going to be the earliest June 28, then that means that the phone will be released within 0 - 2 days of the WWDC?

    Where do we get the info that AT&T employees are not allowed to take vacations only for June?

    And do you mean "except for June" or "in June"? What do you mean?

    Damn, I didn't know the release day was given just a week or two before it actually comes out. I thought it was a month or two atleast.

    Not to sound too skeptical here, but some blogger's claim that mutiple sources within AT&T have confirmed it doesn't exactly come off as concrete evidence to me.

    Hey All,

    I joined the forum today after seeing these posts about the NO AT&T vacation in June....I work for At&t mobility and can assure you that NO such block exists...We actually laugh about this at work...Also I got approved for a week in June just yesterday. Hope this helps just a little.

    I work retail in a COR store!!

    Right now we know what you all know, internet stuff. We are all getting excited (OK maybe just me) but the June vacation block is 100% false.
