First thanks Indy for my daily fix on the subject...and I would agree with Young...for those of us that are old enough...remember every one wanted that "Crack" when you depressed a key on an IBM keyboard or keyboard clone?...now it's one of the most annoying things going.
Yeah, I still like a clicky keyboard. Unless my wife is zonked on the couch and I'm searching for porn.

Yeah, unless those updates were force-fed to an unlocked and jailbroken phone at an inoportune time. I would hate to be locked out of my T-Mobile iPhone if I was on a businesss trip, far away from my Dev Team releases!

Incidently Indy, I just noticed your contract counter has changed. What gives? Did I miss something from another post?

Dang, that's a ton of 3G iPhones. I'm sure the 3G model will outsell the current model especially in the European and Asian markets where 3G is basically a given for most cell phones.

^^^Either that, or Apple plans on waiting until at least 2010 to roll out a new phone. Also, if service providers overseas are going to give out iPhones at a discounted rate in exchange for 1 and 2 year contracts, I could easily see the iPhone selling that many. Look at how well the N95 is doing there now that people can get it free in some markets!

Ok so I feel and I'm sure along with others, that I have been cluttering up the forums lately with mostly BS rumors and what not, some abit jucy than others. Anyways, ill be posting all my new findings in this thread now that pertain to the oncoming release of the 3g iPhone.

Feel free to post any other finds here as well. =)

Here's today's (so far)

Now this seems a bit more realistic as far as Apple ordering 3g iPhones:

Hehe, wondered when someone was gonna comment on that. Well to make a long story short, I made a mistake and forgot that my wife and I had her mother put on our contract also and her contract doesn't end until december 20th! That's 1 day before my birthday (12/21), so will be a great birthday gift. By then I'll probably wait for macworld 09 only 1 month away, to see if ol stevo has anything else he'd like to announce.

You see I agreed that I'd wait until all of our contracts were up with t-mobile so we can all join an att family plan, I'm fine with that and the waiting doesn't bother me much. Although I could bite the bullet and buy a cheap 4gig model off ebay or something, unlock it and use it with tmobile, I'm fine with my sidekick for now, it works ok and although not an iPhone, the iPhone to me isn't everything I want in a phone just yet, with all the talk about the new version coming out I'm anxious to see how it changes. I for 1 want the faster 3g speeds and possible even MORE memory, gps, better camera and so on and so on.

If Apple didn't have the reputation they live by and didn't release a new version of a product every 6 months then sure, I'd do everything I can to own an iPhone RIGHT NOW! I'm fine with the waiting game, it's going to be fun to see how things unfold in the next month to the next 6 months and when my contract is up I will seriously start considering my purchase of the newest version out. Right now, that's looking like macworld 09. You can bet your life on it though, on THAT day...I will be waiting, credit card in hand, no new hardware? Then I will have whatever is out then. New Hardware version? I'll have it the next day (or on release day). =)

Until then, I'll just hang out with you all and be a wannabe/future iPhone owner/user, and keep churning out the news the best I can.:p

Thanks for all the links to today's news. I saw the engadget news this morning but for some reason my stoopid sidekick doesn't let me reply on the forums anymore, grrrrrr. Looks like Eragon and others will have to keep it up to date to the minute now.;)

Indy, you make me wanna buy a 4 gb iPhone on eBay and send it to you unlocked, jailbroken, with the T-Zones hack installed for you! I envy your intestinal fortitude on the matter of not buying an iPhone yet. I personally don't have that type of restraint. I have a disgusting habit of rationalizing the purchase of new devices, when I know damn-well I don't need them. Who knows, perhaps the Xperial X1 will give you everything you are looking for in a cellphone. I hear it will come with T-Mobile's 3G band too! You just might need that if you keep adding family member onto your plan hehehe.

1) Send me a PM and I'll send you my address :p

2) I don't think I'll be buying another phone on tmobile's service and I'm definitely not "adding" anyone to my current plan. When my mother-in-law's contract is up on 12/20, I'm out! Hello At&t. :laugh2:
