It's cingular and AT&T now, joint companies now. But, I'm using cingular and know what all the vehemence is about.

Will have to see it in person weather it's worth the hype.
Guessgirl, I'm a Blackberry user too and from the Apple key notes video, the iPhone would definitely be a better device to surf the net on!

It seems Apple might have gotten Safari (the browser on the iPhone) to format and display the web content properly on the iPhone, which is more than what I can say when trying to surf the web on my Blackberry. (read: )

I agree. If there is one downside to surfing the net via a Blackberry its the fact that pages just are not formatted properly. Its so aggravating! I need to look through the specs list but I'm guessing the iPhone is going to be running Quicktime as well, another massive plus as you can't watch video on a Blackberry

Oh, it's just someone who has direct access to supply or something (like a retailer maybe) selling guaranteed access to phones on ebay. Like you pay him now, he sends you the phone when it ships.

well exactly and they are suffering sales b/c of the demand with people settling for xboxes instead. PSIII had this same problem. btw for whoever asked it unlocking phones is free if you are on pay as you go. You just need the PUK code.

Any idea what's so bad about Cingular?

I have got a new bunch of employees today and for those who are getting cell phones, almost all of them are signing up for Cingular now with the intent to get an iPhone later once it hits the market.

princess, I have cingular and really dont have any problems. Whereas my brother was having lots of problems with t mobile and verizon

ale -- I was lucky and got a wii for retail on ebay a few weeks ago, and a ps3 below retail (after tax) :p Guess they had a lot of shipments recently. I really doubt they'll be very hard to get for more than a month or so

It does seem to be the to-go-to company now. But, my problem is dealing with the service bars in my area. Whenever I have to make a call, I have to double check my band selection- a pain in the behind.

Does it not depend on what part of the US you are living in on how well your service is? Because I know vodafone is based around where a friend of mine's family home is in west berkshire but there is NO service there because it's very hilly or something. very rural. does this make a difference?
