    -data will now cost ATT's $30 a month on top of a voice plan (as opposed to $20/m for the original iphone)
    -you can only activate the phone in-store (not online)
    -no online ordering
    -"AT&T and Apple are working on a form of penalty for users who don't activate their iPhone within 30 days of purchase."
    -with apple revenue sharing with ATT probably done, apple could potentially start charging for future iphone updates (like the touch).


    makes me kinda glad i held on to my original iphone....the new one is going to be quite a pain at first...
    and i'd definitely wait to see if it can be hacked like the original devices before purchasing one..

    Sell it. Trust me, it will be a wise decision before he realizes the 3G one is out.
