I WORK FOR AT&T (A RETAIL STORE-NOT CORP) AND I CAN TELL YOU NOW, THAT THE SALES FOR THIS PHONE ARE GOING TO PHENOMINAL! I HAVE ATLEAST 15 PEOPLE A DAY COMING IN AND GIVING ME BUSINESS CARDS, OR STICKY NOTES WITH THEIR PHONE NUMBERS ON IT FOR ME TO CALL THEM THE MINUTE IT COMES IN. I'VE HAD PEOPLE BEG ME TO TAKE THE MONEY NOW SO THEY CAN BE ASSURED THAT THEY GET ONE. I PERSONALLY CAN'T WAIT FOR THE PHONE TO MAKE IT'S DEBUT. :)

Thanks for the info. What are you guys doing about current AT&T subscribers not eligible for an upgrade?

You'd have to buy it out right if you're not elegible for upgrade. "OR" add a line to the plan you already have, then you will get it at the cheaper rate. You would just have two lines.

I'm hesitant to ask, but any idea what they'll charge for an iPhone with no commitment?

I'm not sure yet. When I know something I'll let everyone here know too.
I have a demo line through work, but I can't get the cheaper rate on the phone, so I'm kinda worried about the price too.
Well if it's $500 for no commitment, then that means they're selling them for the prices advertised. I'm sure most can deal with that. If they're offering a discount for a new two year commitment then that'll be icing on the cake.

One other question - Do you know whether a data plan will be required for purchase of the iPhone?

Yes, atleast a media max which is 20.00. If they class it as a smart phone then they'll make people purchase a 59.99 pda connect plan. We'll just have to see how they class it.

Everywhere I see the iPhone, it says "...with a 2-year contract."

Sounds like there's still quite a bit of information that needs to come down to store level. Your answers are very similar to the ones I got from At&t customer service and also from my local At&t store. They both felt like they would be able to answer my questions better in a week or so.

Thanks for your insight.

I would bet it is the $59.99 plan as I have it on my Cingular 8125, it is a rip off but I need it. The plan for the other Cingular (2125), or whatever it is that my wife has is around $19.99 but for the smart phone I had to pay the higher price.

I know, I have a Nokia 9300 smartphone and I have to have the higher package too. :oops:
