    RUMOR TIME So one of the members of Modmyifone.com had an interesting conversation with the manager of his local AT&T Store.

So any hopes of getting the new phones cheap is all of forgotten...sorry to bare the bad news but i had to inform you all.

    There you all go
    Uh oh I hope his manger buddy is clueless, those prices are STEEP.
    and more of the same, sounds scary

    I asked about the 3g phones and, well, I was told the same story... With the exception of the release date....
    I was told 599 and 699 respectively.... But he said there has been rumblings of a price drop within the first few months, like the first gen. iPhone

    Low level management would have no idea about pricing this early. not even there DMs or most of the people above them. Not even apple management would know until at they had them in there store or at the very least a week before they hit. I call shanangins!

    I doubt they'll make it cost that high. I'd guess $600 at max for 16G

    People are silly if they think they would lower the price of the new ones...NOOO...what will probably happen is they will lower the prices of the old ones and the new ones will take over them(8gb for 400 16gb for 500 and the old ones will be less expensive)

    Thats not surprising, as Apple always makes their products cost too much. But I'm sure the price will drop, so don't worry about that.

    Just like the iPod Touch's did.

    I'll be waiting for the Australian release date and the price drop.

    My linksys WRT54G3G is giving apple the big finger right now

    Seriously guys, just buy one of these, and then install it in your car

    Enjoy all the goodness of your jail break and if you happen to be way out west you can plug a 11db yagi into it.

    no one is going to get an info before a release date unless they are executives for really important people. so i dont believe you.
