Well, I can't wait to switch to cingular in June. I have heard a few dates and the recent one is June 20th. But who knows. I have called the cingular/AT&T stores and one tried to encourage me not to get it? rofl They were like why do you want this phone, we have phones that are way faster than this one. and like "our blackjack has speeds up to 1.8Megs". And we don't even have 3g coverage out here.. So yes.

But some of my questions are.

What will the data rates be for the iPhone? Will they have like separate packages for iPhone data? Or will it use those crappy expensive data rates?

Will it offer flash on the web browser to allow youtube or anything like that? If so how will it offer that if the speed ares that fast?

If you buy one off Apple's website, what will you have to do? Bring it to a cingular store or somthing? Or will it be come over the internet cingular account activation?

What are the chances of getting one on the first day? I live in Lacey, WA and the store is in Olympia, WA the state capital, its not huge but its a decent city. I'M not really sure.

I Just want one! :D


We all have iPhone Syndrome :p

We all have iPhone Syndrome :p
1. The rates and pricing for the iPhone, as of now, have not officially been announced. You are, however, at the right place to look for any new updates.

2. Steve Jobs mentioned that Flash will be built in on the iPhone, we just need to figure out what version. He also specifically mentioned YouTube, so you should have no trouble with that.

3. Again, this has not yet been officially been announced. There are many threads around that mention the matter, so keep checking those for more updates.

4. This is a toughie. There are, again, many, many threads around talking about the demands and whether they will be met. At this point, though, it seems like more people are saying that there will be plenty to go around. It seems to me like there'll either be plenty to go around or empty shelves and sad faces. We will have to wait and see.


Hope this helps. Stay with us for more info, and welcome to the forums.
