    I think there will be a buy-online-option at launch.
    after the keynote, there was a "buy online" button at the new iPhone 3G Apple-Website but after a few minutes it disappeared...

    I think we will all be happy in a few weeks. so rock on...

    Thumbs up Good News!!!

    I was reading this thread and decided to call my local Apple Store. When I asked they said that you could buy the G3 iPhone:iphone: without signing a contract but you would have to activate it using iTunes (just like the first generation iPhone:iphone

    So I hope that clears up any questions you guys had.

    Default iPhone will be sold online...

    ...Per Apple.

    I called 1.800.MY.APPLE and was told we would be able to buy the iPhone 3G direct from Apple for $199 w/o penalties.

    I specifically asked what if I don't plan on signing up with AT&T and was told ...$199.

    Some of you others call and see if you get the same response I received.

    *note: It did not sound like an American on the other end. Very foreign accent. Does Apple farm out their customer service?

    I used to work at an AT&T authorized retail store, and let me tell you, it's a whole bunch of bs and time consumption to sign up a person for a contract, let alone activate the phone. You have to run their credit, explain them how the whole thing works if they don't know, help them choose their plan, etc... takes about 10-15 minutes to sign up a person for a contract in the best case, and about 30-45 to activate the phones... now imagine 1000's of people sieging apple store on july 11th,
    each one wanting to buy iphones, think how much time it will take and if that will be even possible with all those people waiting. Employees will have to get special training, which means more resources, and sure enough people will be coming back in case they have problems and apple will have to deal with at&t problems.

    I just don't imagine apple doing all the work for at&t, I think they will just limit (or attempt to) the purchase of handsets per customers. It makes sense, because what of those people that would like to get the iphone 3G as a gift, without the account holder being there? Will they just get denied by apple, which in turn will receive more scrutiny for their business ways? This whole idea of one company performing the tasks for another company sounds flawed to me. What exactly will apple get out of activating iphones for at&t? There is no more revenue sharing, so i fail to see any legitimate reasons, besides at&t concerns.

    And i mean there's always the option of bribery,
    you pay 50$ more and have a little talk with the store clerk, and maybe you can deal something out. (As most of the clerks instore are just college boys/girls on a part time job they can make good use of the extra money)

    even though that would be my last resort..

    Actually you can barter for items with most stores, especially small stores. They were talking about this n the radio, just because there is a set price doesnt mean you cant barter a little bit. Try it, maybe it'll work!


    iPhone "2G" - 3.1.3 - Jailbroken + iPhoDroid
