    im going to be out of town, but im just going to buy it off of apple.com. im just gonna use my existing plan and add the $20 data plan on. i currently have the $10 addon that had unlimited m2m texting for cingular and 200 additional, so with the data plan, ill have 400 additional plus unlimited everything else.

    i guess im gonna go for the 8 gig, another $100 to double the capacity.

    i cant believe im gonna spend this much on this damn thing lol.

    I'm gonna run by the ATT store by my house around 5:30pm and see what's up. I'm not too concerned though, I think they will have enough.

    I'm leaving for a two week vacation tomorrow morning. When I get back I'll go to the store and do some research. I need a new phone anyways, but I'll have to see if it rapes the family plan or not.

    I don't think you do if you are currently on a Cingular plan.

    Not me. I just picked up a Nokia N95 and wouldn't trade it for an iPhone unless you payed me. :)

    I picked it up for $668 on buy.com. I absolutely LOVE this phone. I've always been a big fan of symbian, but the 5mp camera and built in gps are too cool.

    I am going to try and get the 8gb as well. Problem is I work 4-10pm so I am going to try and get someone to cover for me while I run out for a couple hours and see how long of line there is at some of the ATT stores around here. Then I'll have to run back to work :wtc: Might just end up getting it on apple.com as well.

    yeah, I'm pretty sure you have to sign a new contract. If you're an existing Cingular customer, they may not make you pay the contract-break fee but you will have to sign a new 2-year agreement with one of the iPhone plans. It's not going to be as easy and just buying the phone, swapping the SIM card, and adding a $20 Data plan to your contract. Those data plans, to my knowledge, are iPhone specific.

    I could be wrong on this but I'm pretty sure that's the deal. :hs:

    my friend works in at an at&t store and he was telling me about how its going to go down


    they are closing at 4:30 and reopening at 6
    iphones are arriving either by armed guards or by multiple fedex drivers
    all phones will be in a locked safe
    only 11 people are allowed in the store at a time (1:1 ratio for customer to employee)
    only 1 iphone will be allowed on the floor at a time. it will be the demonstration phone which 1 employee will handle
    when you buy the phone, an employee will go back with the manager to get it and hand it to you. you then leave with an armed guard
