    On this one…boy you are slow to be doing tech blogging. they do it this way so its harder for phone flippers to make a profit from getting the phone. so yeah its priced cheaper to wait the month.

    and of course 2.0 was needed–it solves security issues….their total launch was fine. ur post is pointless.

    iPhone 3G pricing, as we previously reported, doesn’t make sense. It is cheaper to buy an iPhone 3G as a new customer, pay for a month of service, and then the early termination fee… than it is to buy an iPhone 3G at the no-contract price.

    While Apple likely won’t lose any money from this route, AT&T may be forced to increase no-contract iPhone 3G prices down the road because of this. And, I assure you, the media will make a big deal out of that, and the public will be left scratching their heads, thinking iPhone 3G costs more now than before.

    Does Apple plan on ever releasing a CDMA version for other carriers? How long is that deal with AT&T for?

    Assuming I do not want to wait to 2012 and I want to keep my carrier, so I go through the trouble to pay the termination fee after enrolling for a couple of dayS with AT&T, just to get my hands in an iPhone, what do I do with it to use it with my carrier, say VeriZon?

    I know someone using an iphone with t-Mobile. They hacked it somehow

    You won’t be able to use an iPhone on a CDMA carrier (Sprint, Verizon etc,), but there are several other options. Sprint offers the Samsung Instinct. Verizon offers the LG ENV2 or Venus. There are also several phones from HTC or Blackberry that have similar functionality to the iPhone.
    The iPhone is cool, but it’s not everything.

    I thank you all for your feedback. One more thing: my Treo can do a lot a stuff way before the iPhone. (so Treo users did not get too exited for things we take already for granted). Especially one thing I did not find described anywhere about the iPhone: Office applications such as Word, Excel, Outlook -or similar apps- and capability to sync them. Am I missing something?
