    Apple 3G at Best Buy
    He's right, this is what it says on the website when u click on learn more:

    *Based on 3G and EDGE testing. Actual speeds vary by site conditions. Based on iPhone 3G (8GB) and first-generation iPhone (8GB) purchases. Requires new 2-year AT&T rate plan, sold separately.

    One iPhone per customer.
    Due to strong demand, they will not be eligible for pre-order.

    It is now the 12th of September. So I am guessing that you have to buy the 2 year plan right? how much does that cost? and if you can buy the iPhone without the plan, who much would it costs?

    Default It will be available without a contract

    Perhaps this contract issue can be made a sticky because it keeps coming up.

    This has been in the news since July, ATT stated this in a press release that you can read here.

    "In the future, AT&T will offer a no-contract-required option for $599 (8GB) or $699 (16GB)."

    I would guess that once ATT starts selling it without a contract everywhere will.

    Even if they sell it without a contract IT WILL STILL BE LOCKED TO AT&T.
    Still have to wait for a software unlock which I hope will be very soon.

    Remember -- Apple signed an exclusive contract with AT&T. The latest estimate is that it will be in effect until at least 2010. (Apple and AT&T have never disclosed the length of their agreement.) Right now, iPhone sales are helping drive AT&T's 3g expansion, and they have the phone everybody wants. Let's face it -- they'd be pretty stupid to let that slip through their fingers. As long as Apple has enough people standing in lines for iPhones, the deal works fine for them. There's not enough market pressure to make either side change their plans any time soon.

    Despite some reports that sim solutions mess your phone up, they work fine for me and countless others who don't need to wait for an unlock.

    I know they don't mess the phone up, but it's the way they change your phones identity number in the network that has me concerned. It's an illegal procedure, regardless of if they work or not.

    I'm waiting for my iPhone 3G I bought from eBay and I will be using a sim unlock card, but I would definetely prefer a software unlock.
