I think it's a few months off, but I do think they'll introduce it as a software upgrade at some point. Not that I know anything but there's an awful lot of talk about it.
IPhone: Adobe Getting Flash Prepped for iPhone, if Only Apple Will Allow It

I just hope that Flash will be an option if/when it finally gets released for the iPhone. It's bad enough that there's no Saft or AdBlock-like feature in Mobile Safari that I waste most of my bandwidth and time loading ad images and junk.

I'm a bit confused. I was under the impression that the Safari browser did support flash mostly because I was aware it was able to stream youtube videos which I assumed were flash-based (aren't most embedded videos?). Could anyone clarify why the iPhone can stream Youtube but the BlackBerry Curve, which I own, and others I'm sure can't?

They would have said it already
Flash is something that we all have been waiting for. I don't believe they would be keeping it a secret, unless they have a bunch of other secrets (like cut-and-paste) for maximum impact on the day of the release.

This could be one of those areas where even the great Steve cannot stop the train. Flash is so widespread throughout the internet, how can it continue as the de facto handheld web browser without it. I'd bet it will show up in OS 2.1 alongside cut & paste (another "what are they thinking" moment)

MLG | Major League Gaming (it's a competitive gaming site) could be loaded on the iPhone as of now?
If someone would be so kind (that has an iPhone of course) to point their browser to MLG | Major League Gaming and then go to the "Gameroom" link at the top and attempt to stream one of those videos, it would be most appreciated.
I don't know what I could do in return but these forums have been incredibly helpful since I signed up a few days ago, so I'm hoping for the best.

I'm a flash developer and I really am happy there's no flash on the iPhone. In fact, it's really made me reconsider flash in general, and pushed me towards more css, ajax, etc.
Flash has really pour performance on OS X (memory hog and processor stressor, which would kill battery life), powers umteen annoying banner adds, and has immense privacy and security flaws:
