I tend to be very deliberate when making any big purchase. Generally, I think it is always good to see/hear/read what others have to say first. That being said, I'll probably wait a week or so, just to see what people have to say, but I don't think I'll have to research this one quite as much as a normal big-ticket purchase. I'll say within 10 days of it's official availability date.

I did not expect to buy the first iPhone. After it had been out about a month, I took a trip to New York City, where I got to try out the iPhone for the first time (there are no Apple Stores close to where I live). We went to the store in SoHo first, and even went to an iPhone seminar upstairs. A few days later, we went to the class cube store on 5th Avenue to play around with the iPhones again. A few days after returning from New York, I decided I couldn't live without it, and bought it.
It really came down to seeing how many situations there were to have the always-available full Internet in your pocket. After seeing the iPhone, I kept thinking, "I could just look that up right now, if I had an iPhone."
I think I might wait a couple weeks to make sure there are no bugs, etc., but who knows, with all the excitement, I may get one day one.

I've actually waited a year to purchase an Iphone already. I decided that I absolutely did not want one last year, but after playing with my girlfriend's phone for the last few weeks, I have decided that full blown Internet in your pocket is just too good to pass up. I'll probably get one on launch day.

Ive had first hadn expereince waiting in line for something new, My Wii. I think that was somewhat of a mistake. IM not saying i dont love my Wii but waiting in line for the iphone might not be one adventure im goign to be willing to take. If you wait a week or two you'll start running into them all over the place. No question in my mind that apple will be sellign these thigns like hot cakes so its goign to be nearly impossible to find out once the initial shock is gone.

Well what held me back from the first gen iPhone was no Exchange intergration. So that issue will be resolved with the new firmware. And the fact that I can't stand my WM Treo 700wx any longer, I maybe in line somewhere on opening day. I can't get enough news on the 3G iPhone.
