You can't buy the iPhone in the Apple Store Germany, only through T-Mobile and with a valid contract or extending an existing subscription (certain limitations apply). Apparently some people don't know about this, when I visited a local T-Mobile Shop today, there were already some younger guys from an east european country there to get some iPhones or to make some sort of "reservation" for tomorrow. They were pretty disappointed when the sales woman told them that they need a contract with each iPhone, they actually thought that they can walk in like in the US and buy iPhones without a contract. I'm pretty sure that there are going to be some "long faces" tomorrow when people realize that you can't buy an iPhone without a contract.

I wonder if there's going to be a german restore software that t mobile people in the US are going to be able to use on US tmobile phones to avoid the unlocking/update mess?
How do you access T-Mobile iTunes activation without a German iPhone?
Or do you have one?
And if you do how can you have one already? Unless there were shops open in Germany at midnight selling iPhones?
How did Priority access T-Mobile activation on iTunes?
I know here in the UK that O2 are milking it for all they are worth but it seems unfair to make people wait until 6.02pm for an iPhone!
What if they work in the evening! seems silly!
