    New Activation Process and BRE:
    The iPhone 3G will be activated at point of sale when the device is purchased, in store. The BRE period will change from 14 days to 30 days and will require the device to be returned to place of purchase before service is cancelled
    .

    UPDATE: All customers will be required to sign a 2-year agreement. There will not be a "no commitment" price for the iPhone 3G.
    Certainly maybe the case for US customers, but UK customers this maybe not the case were I beleive o2 are still on the revenue sharing deal with Apple

    Apple Stores are not geared up to sign up deals in store
    According to the UK o2 site, this will be avaaible online

    Not to be devil's advocate here, but they have a MONTH to go.. I guess if Apple UK is planning to gear up its stores to sign-ups, it has plenty of time to do it...

    Alright so my friend is a legit ATT customer with the current iphone. Can he go to the apple store and buy his first one and legitly activate and then get a second one saying he broke the first one to give to me? Wouldnt he not be required to activate the second if he was going to use his paperclip i mean "sim ejector tool" to put his first 3g sim in the new 3g phone?

    o2 UK site states an 18 month contract, not 2 years.

    Steve Jobs stated 8Gb iPhone 3G will cost a maximum of $199 in all 70 countries. How can they charge more when god has spoken?

    I really want to see how this will work here in Brasil.
    Brasil is one of the countrys that will have iPhone 3G, but here is not allowed LOCKED phones by law. All phones here must be unlocked.
    So apple will be forced to sell unlocked phones, at least unlocked to all brasilian carriers.

    I am very interested in this statement. Does this mean that they will charge the equivalent of 199$ world wide, or they will charge for example 199 Euros?

    Apple doesn’t charge more, they charge US$199 (converted to local currency) in all Apple stores - and on the condition that you sign up to a local carrier contract. No contract = No phone.

    The carriers themselves can charge what they want. For contracts this will likely be the same as Apple or less, otherwise people would just buy through the Apple store instead. But for any pay as you go non-contract type deal this will be a whole lot more than the contract subsidised US$199. (Applies online, offline, or otherwise)

    Also ‘simlock’ is nothing to do with it. In France or Germany you might get a non-simlocked phone, but you are still going to be signing up to a contract like anywhere else in the world. (or paying a premium for a non-contract pay as you go deal if they offer this)

    Make sense?
