I was watching Everybody Hates Chris like the poster stated she was doing yesterday. And I saw the infamous disappearing iPhone commercial. It was just like she said. The iPhone spinning around, buttons being pressed...the iPhone was making all kinds of cool noises and stuff...literally a defining moment in my life! lol

At the end, it stated very clearly, "Coming, June 29th"

Wow, I apologize for any doubt I conveyed about the earlier posters veracity.

BTW, it was CW33 affiliate in Dallas / Fort Worth area. On during Everybody Hates Chris. Tune in, I swear I saw it!

I am pretty sure it was in the first set of commercials. I am working at the fire station today and have been watching CW33 all day trying to glimpse this commercial I didn't believe aired last night. I am pretty sure it hasn't aired during any other show. Then again, people have been calling for help all day long too, so it is possible I might have missed it if it was on earlier.

I never watch CW33, and I don't think I am alone on that. Which makes me wonder, why that channel, why that time slot, why why why? Oh well, all I know is, it has a date, the date was the 29th, my guessing is over. All I have to do now is wait...

What will the next big contested rumor be?

I'm glad there's an offical date now, but I'm kinda bummed. I was hoping for the 26th cause i have of that day (my "weekends" are tuesday and wednesday) and I coulda camped out if it came down to that. Now I'm worried I won't get one. Hopefully they'll have enough to meet demand or Apple.com to the rescue.

Judging from the security request, I believe AT&T stores will be receiveing shipments on the evening of the 25th or early morning of the 26th. They will probably have a fancy display set up in the stores (my guess why they would request the police all that week) and then on the 29th I will be calling all of my friends from my new iPhone to brag! haha!:cool:

It does not look like the CW33 ad. I am seeing a lot of people who are saying it aired during Dateline on NBC also. This may be the NBC commercial.

I might not be 100% correct, I am at the fire station, and when those guys saw me flip out when this commercial came on, I basically had to wrestle the remote out of their hands and deal with them doing all they could to try and keep me from seeing this commercial. We get a lot of pleasure out of giving each other a really hard time. All that to say, I didn't get the best look at it. One thing is for sure, June 29th, official. No mistaking that point!

Yep and now Engadget has confirmed it as well.


Ready to pony the cash? Looks like our source was right: the iPhone is yours come June 29th. The commercial just aired on 60 Minutes, and now you can finally mark your calendar and get on with your life -- for the next 25 days or so, until you get in line for your spankin' new $600 iPhone.

Sweeeeeet~!:p
