    cause apple stated that it'll be open to apple stores and at&t stores


    And another note, if we could purchase the iPhone 3g online do we have to have an at&t sign up too?

    I'm not sure, it's been speculated that you will have to purchase the 3G iPhone and activate the plan while you are in the AT&T store, so maybe yes? And yes, the iPhone 3G will be sold on Apple Stores online, retail stores and one of 1800+ AT&T stores.

    maybe it will not be available online right after the launch, and it seems that you will have to activate your phone inside the store. no more activation at home with itune. At least for the beginning but maybe it will be available online later.

    apple know that a large number of the 1st iphones are used in countries where the iphone was not for sale but with the expansion up to 70 countries apple want to stop those "illegal" sales and the activation in the store seems to me a effective way to do it.

    Does anyone know if/when the 3G iPhone is unlocked whether or not the GPS functions will still work with other carriers? There could be a built in GPS receiver or maybe it runs off of 3G of maybe I have no idea what the hell I'm talking about, either way I'd like to know or at least know what you think.
