I just read an article in El Nuevo Día, the most important newspaper in Puerto Rico, that says that the iPhone will not be available in any store in PR. AT&T and Apple don't said the reason for this stupid decision. I'm very disappointed and sad, hope to have it in my hands soon.

PD - Enjoy your iPhones U.S. residents

That's terrible. Maybe it's something to do with the network there.

Well, the iPhone is going to be available in the "U.S.". PR is not part of the US, it is a US territory. It would be like having the iPhone available in Guam or the Virgin Islands.

For all purposes, everything available in the US is available in PR as well. Cingular is going through the same transition as ATT. The reason why is probably because of the network there. I don't think they have revamped the GSM network so maybe some of the features wouldn't be available, like Visual VM.

Plus there isn't an Apple store per se, only authorized retailers.

Another thing the article said was that iPhones can't be activated with a PR account, but if activated with a US account you can bring it to PR and it would work well.
