    Incredibly low compared to some of the video game releases out there.

    I'm not saying it's a good phone or not, I'm just telling you I've ran across a ton of articles of people for example who bought it and couldn't even get it to work the first day they bought it. lol

      Well that isn't surprising. A computer game costs £40 and the iPhone costs 99 + (30 * 18) = £639.

      Selling 1 million phones that cost so much is impressive if you ask me.

        If you think about it, their servers were bombarded with thousands of requests from current iPhone users (not 3G) to upgrade (and reactivate), thousands of iPhone 3G users activating, and iPod Touch users wanting to upgrade. I would not want to be the one taking care of those servers.

          Got my hands on a white 16GB yesterday. Absolutley love it and I'm really surprised how much more I like it over my first gen. Just the feel alone is so much more comfortable. It fits really well in your hand and you don't get that slippery, it feels easy to drop feeling.

          Also I had zero issues. They activated the phone at the apple store, I went home and restored my backup, did a sync and everthing was up and running just like on my old phone.

              In the US? Apple Store or ATT Wireless Store. Unless you want to risk purchasing an unlocked phone on eBay.

              Personally, I am just going to stick with my Blackberry.

                  You guys get off the hook easy there in UK...
                  Canada = ($249 or $349) + (($60 + $6.59 system access fee) + 13% tax) * 36 months)... $50 rebate on first month's bill if you're new customer.

                  Canadian currency is at par with USD (99 cents or so) lately...

                  I'm taking my chances, not off ebay, but off craigslist and alike.

                    All valid points, but I don't imagine LTE developing all that rapidly. The euro market of 900 million has only 100 of it using 3G. People don't comprehend the need for 3G just yet, so why increase the bandwidth anymore than they have to. UMTS and EV-DO are completely suitable for the industry's demands. Hell, T-Mobile's HSDPA is faster than some broadband providers.
                    I would imagine that LTE is being developed at a decent rate, the deployment is a whole other story, though. As far as T-Mobile's HSDPA, it's unfortunate that they are only in very select markets right now. From everything I'm seeing, T-Mobile is an up and coming company in the U.S. wireless market.

                    Agreed but again, with Vodaphone having a say I think you'll start to see more phones with less restrictions. The Voyager and Dare are certainly steps in the right direction. They're better phones than a lot of what Verizon has had in the past.

                    I hadn't heard that. In fact, I had heard that Vodaphone was pushing for more "open" phones that had less restrictions (hence what I posted above).

                      at&t coverage

                      Anyone have any luck with AT&T with their coverage. I live in the same town as AT&T's World Headquarters and I can't get a consistent signal!

                          That's exactly the reason why I wait for a purchase of my 3G. I want to be sure that car-navigation is indeed working (when TomTom or any other company officially releases their software for it). Then I will buy one. I am telling nothing new, but a telephone, an internet device, an iPod, a voicerecorder, a games-platform, an organizer, a car GPS, etc, etc and etc... all in 1 single device. And it's from Apple. I have no reason not to buy it.

                          Brilliant.

                              Until the 4G iPhone comes out next year, probably.
