    I heard it will be released on July 11, 2008 starting at 8AM. Can anyone confirm this?

    It seems as though a lot of AT&T reps don’t know a lot and the things they tell you are not necessarily true. We were told that everyone on our family plan must have an iPhone and that we had to change our minute plan completely. After a lot of research, we found out both were not true. It’s amazing the things those reps will do just to get you to buy a phone. I’m not sure if it was ignorance on that reps part or if he was just trying to get us to buy two phones. Either way, we’re not going back into an AT&T store to get our phones next month. We’ll just hit up the Apple store in the mall.

    I ment to say most of the reps did know it would be out in June but didn’t know a release date.

    I work at the Boulder Colorado store and I can say this, they don’t really tell us release dates. The reason being for example the Cingular 8525 was sold out in stores for over a month so even though the phone was out we couldn’t get it.

    As for the iphone release date most of the the reps did know that it would be out in June but we have not been told by any offical At&t channels a relase date. This is due to the lack of information from Apple. So shoot the messanger but straight from a very insightful rep at Cingular we don’t know anymore then you. I’ve been asking my manager for months are we going to get trained on the iphone and it being May 29th and no answers I’m guessing we’re not.

    I can tell you when I waited for the Cingular 8525 release, none of the stores new the release date. The Cingular Website had more information than any of the stores. The day the Phone was released the Store Rep had to check there inventory to see if the even had it. They had no clue about the phone until it arrived at there store.

    In-store sales reps aren’t exactly well known for thier insightfulness. Not one of your sources mentioned any date. So I don’t think this discredits CNET’s source at all.

    You’re right. As you can see in the post, some of those in-store reps make you wonder why they’re working there at all (iPhone coming out next month??)

    I posted this in the midst of the Internet craze over “the iPhone is coming out June 11!” so I wanted to show that the date was not a for-sure thing.

    Just ’cause some unidentified rep (no matter who it is) says so, doesn’t mean it’s true.

    Thanks for your comment.
