    Technically speaking, that's speculation too. 3G carrier deals have been for other markets, not the US. :hs:

    I'm going to laugh my ass off if they release another 2.5G handset in the US and piss everyone off. (not hating on the iPhone at all, I'll just think that's funny) :rofl:

    That would be hilarious. It's always funny to see how let down people get when they buy into all the rumors and the product doesn't live up to them. They're called "rumors" for a reason.

    That's all I'm saying. I reasonably convinced that the rumors are accurate, but being rumors there's still room for them to screw with market expectations again.

    And if they do, I'll happily giggle to myself as I play with my first gen iPhone. :rofl:

    Differentiation should be made between iPhone 2.0 and the next version of the iPhone hardware. What Apple is calling iPhone 2.0 is just the next firmware version for the current iPhone and should be out next month.

    I've been waiting a year for this shit. I held off on the iphone until 3g was released. Never thought I would have to wait this long tho.

    definitely wait until someone identifies the baseband chip in the new iPhone before purchasing. T-Mobile's 3G licenses are in the Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) spectrum at 1700MHz, and presently there are basically no other carriers anywhere in the world operating UMTS services on that band. AT&T's HSDPA/UMTS is at 1900MHz, and most of Europe is on 2100MHz. If Apple's UMTS radio in the new iPhone doesn't support 1700MHz 3G, you'll be fucked until they upgrade the hardware again. :hs:

    Unfortunately it won't be an issue of unlocking the phone, if the hardware itself can't communicate on those frequencies.

    Apple.com currently shows the iPhone as unavailable for purchase.
