I did not see this posted in the 3 sec I looked. If it is already posted please send me a link.

Does anyone know if the July 11th release date is going to be when the store's open, or a set time like the first gen iPhone?

I know there will be a lot in the store's but I want to make sure I get mine.

Well, hey you tried...:rolleyes:

No one knows the actual release time yet. Due to in-store activations, it would stand to reason that it would be upon store opening. But again, no one knows for sure.

I'm betting that we get the same time as iPhone's release; 6 PM.

I was told by a very reliable source that the iPhone 3G would be made available on July 11th at 3:41 PM Eastern Time, with priority given to those in line who are on Segways juggling at least five live hamsters.

Don't worry, we'll see all the official stuff (times, plans, etc.) well before the 11th.

They should be announcing it any day now. I would count on 6PM local time.
Your "local time" reminded me of last year when folks were freaking out if it was 6PM ET or GMT or whatever. :laugh2:
