Really? According to the keynote address, Steve Jobs said the 8gb will start at $199. No contract requirement. But, new iPhone plans will be $30/mo vs $20/mo for existing iPhone customers.

I could be wrong, but that's what my wife said...

for current ATT customers.....and new customers....

full detail with plan pricing...think the monthly plan is a bit too pricey....but who cares....its the fact that you'll have to pay 500 for a phone is not even worthy....i rather use that money for daipers.

Wow that sucks. Even if you're an existing customer, but don't qualify, its $399. I guess I'm not getting one either til 2009!

The new Blackberry will probably be released by then (cross fingers). I don't know if I can switch over to iPhone from my Blackberry.

I remember being told before that as long as you have gone 13 months into your contract, you could upgrade your phone and just start a new contract.

This January, I was told I'm not eligible to upgrade until September. What are they thinking? They could lock me in for another two years, yet they choose to milk my current contract instead? Has me seriously considering another carrier...and I've been with the same company since Honolulu Cellular days (when they were good) through all the buyouts.

As for the iPhone...the rates I'm hearing are outrageous. $800+/year for your cell phone? That makes my decision for me, personally. Of course it's my understanding Steve Jobs gets a nice little cut from every contract, so I guess AT&T is just passing that cut along to the consumers.

I'm sticking to my unlocked 1st gen iPhone until a stable unlock program comes out for the 2nd gen. Then again, that defeats the purpose of available 3G network.. (currently on Tmobile w/ $5.99 data plan)

I too was with HCTC since cell phones came out. After the 1st buyout, I have probably changed to every other carrier, except T-Mobile, and have come full circle back to AT&T. The only reason why I left HCTC was because of their contract plans and poor customer service.

Great, now even more reasons not to get the iPhone. Let's wait to hear what George has to say about it.

Yeah, I already gave him the "when I was your age..." lecture

So are the iPhones already sold out? I was on my way to work and passed the AT&T store in Pearl City (next to Stuart Andersons) and the line was out the door, up the driveway, curled down the driveway, and up the sidewalk. All for a phone???

Anyone got one yet?
