  1. I think you may have to decide on the day the iphone is on sale actually in the store.

    I must admit, the communication about the calling plans have been very badly publicised – thats AT&Ts; fault though, not Apple’s.

  2. I’m waiting for things to calm down. I’m very interested in others field-testing it before I buy. To spend $500 and two years of my life on a plan is more than I want to bet on, for the moment.

    I’m almost positive it’ll be a HUGE slam dunk. Almost.

  3. 6pm on a frickin’ Friday? What great idea–>”we’ll release the iphone on a F WEEKEND–that way everyone will roll out to AT&T & apple stores on Sunday and they’ll be closed! It’ll be terrific!”

  4. Somehow, I dont think the reported 3 million iPhones stockpiled by AT&T and Apple .. are gonna be enough to satisify the public on launch day …

    I get the feeling there will be a lot of people buying more than one … then, recouping their costs by selling the extra iPhones they bought … on eBay …

    Scalping iPhones ?? … you betcha .. Didnt this happen with the PlayStation3 … (or was it the Nintendo WII) ?

    Yeah, I used to go to my fave local Apple Store at least every week to hang with the people there (we loved to talk all things Apple – of course!) and have, over time, become friends (from the manager to the genii to the floor specialists). Plus I have spent around $20k at this local Apple Store over the years.

    So, with those two things I have some notoriety and respect there. Long story short: My fave friend there —
