While Steve Jobs gave us an exact time (6 p.m.) to line up for buy an iPhone, he didn't go into many details.

As it turns out, the iPhone will be sold on June 29th at 6 p.m. local time -- so East Coasters will get a full 3 hour head start over their West Coast counter parts.

An memo sent by AT&T confirmed this today:
The iPhone will go on sale on at AT&T retail stores June 29 at 6 p.m. local time in each market.

see, it all works out. 3 hour extra wait isn't going to kill you. probably are doing it this way to make sure the network and tech support system wont all get hit at the same time.

They could do the same thing at 9 AM and it wouldn't hit at the same time.:)

Glad we finally got some answer on this though. Maybe we'll see the letter in the next day or two.
