alright i think i have info i havent read anywhere else yet.
and PLEASE don't like.. criticize me for suggesting such info might be true.
I don't know if it is. this is just what I was told.
I'll start with the backstory so you see why I believe it.
I used to work at a Quiznos right next door to a Cingular store, in a strip mall together. The employees over there would come in all the time. Being a cingular customer myself, I'd always chat with them about new phones coming out, etc. The one kid over there would always keep me updated on when new stuff was coming. (for instance, he let me know a week or two early about an upcoming sale on SLVR phones when i was thinking about getting one... which i did.. at the sale price.. a few weeks later.)
anyway, i went into that quiznos last week and he saw my car and came over to say hey (and tease me about leaving for a new job, etc. Just casual catch-up converation.) Of course, I jumped at the chance to try and get some info about iPhone. He said they aren't telling them much of anything at all, but he knew some cool stuff. here's what he told me.
-rate plans for minutes will be the same as other phones
-data plans.. he won't know anything until the day before or day of (he wasn't sure)
-only cingular corporate stores will have iphones for the first couple months.
i think that stuff is all pretty much common knowledge at this point. but then i asked him what he thought about EDGE, and i'm prettttty sure he said more than he should have....
he said he figured it would probably be "slow as f**k" over EDGE, and i was like "well have you heard anything about 3G yet? like for an update or new model?" and apparently, they are expecting to put it out right before christmas??
maybe you all knew that and i'm just slow to hear stuff, but that was news to me.
again... seriously don't rip me apart or assume i'm making stuff up. and don't just assume thats true either, cause he might be wrong. just what i heard and i thought i'd pass it along.
