    So on my way into work in Midtown Manhattan, i've passed 3 AT&T stores, all with lines going around the block. I am still on the fence about it (I really want one but not having 32gb hurts).

    So is anyone grabbing one today? Or does anyone have it yet? Impressions? Thoughts? Worth the hype?

    seems like most at&t stores are selling out, but apple stores may have them in abundance.

    I thought about it, maybe not today, but in general. When I realized it was easier to get a mortgage than it was to get an iPhone, I skipped it.

    I plan on it also, just not right now. Let them work the bugs out. It will be around. Besides, I want to see what monthly packages they have because I like my current, same price, unlimited plan, I have right now.

    I thought about getting the iphone some time ago but I always heard stories of very expensive bills and such so I decided to get the Voyager from LG.

    Go learn Data Plans, Rogers.

    But yeah, I also want to wait for a 32GB version at the very least.

    While true, you can't let that attitude stop you from making a purchase. Otherwise you will ALWAYS be waiting for the next upgrade.

    seeing that i just bought one a few months ago, i'll have to pass...

    plus seeing that its not unlockable yet (i think) then i'm going to have to wait....

    and seeing that you have to get a plan to get the phone (from what i heard), i have to wait

    (yes, i have T-Mobile)

    If I could get the phone without the data plan I would buy it. I dont want or need ATT's 3g when I have wifi everywhere I go.

    And why is it so hard for phone manufactures to make a decent phone? :(  Im still on OLD as dirt phones because there is nothing that is really worth it to me. iPhone is close, but not 100% there yet. Oh well, if I get a ipod touch and apply the new firmware I can simply duct tape it to my phone and get get almost all the useful iphone benefits minus the GPS. :p

    I'm too anti-apple to even touch an iphone, let alone consider purchasing one.

    :p

    This reminds me, since I was an early adopter for the Ipod Touch I get screwed having to freaking pay to get the next firmware.

    Oh and what do you guys mean "Not In Canada, Thanks Rogers"? when I walked by the local stores today they seemed to have them.

    I’m on the fence. The sticking points for me right now is no flash support. How rad would youtube on the go be? And the cost of the plan. $70 for the cheapest? That’s a bit more then my currant plan and I lose roll over.
    The impression I have gotten is you can only get the 3G at AT&T stores and they will only sell it to you with a plan to try and keep people from jail braking them. Then I hear you will be able to buy them with out a plan later but they are going to be like $600.

    They are activating them in the Apple stores too. I believe they have AT&T computers in the Apple stores to process these.

    I believe he's referring not the Iphones not being unavailable in Canada, just that Rogers doesn't seem to understand data plan pricing.
