how long untill you can walk into a store and buy a 3G?
My AT&T plan is not eligible for an upgrade until the 28th of July. so I do not need to wait too long, but how long will i have to wait until i can just walk into a store and buy a 3G iphone? how long did it take for the first one to become common?

Welcome to the forums! To answer your question quickly, July 11th is the first day you can walk into a store and get the iPhone 3g. Here is another thread to take a look at that can help answer some more questions you may have regarding the iPhone.

I think he might be asking how many iPhones are these stores going to have in stock and how long are we going to have to wait before they're not backordered every time you walk in. I know I'm sure curious about that even if that's not what he's asking. =P

1. Nintendo's GameCube was not a hot seller so they didn't take a risk in making too many Wiis. They "learned" their lesson... (this time around it was a horse of a different color.)
2. (In the US) There are TWO companies desperately after profits here Apple AND AT&T. Since AT&T is subsidizing the phones so much they NEED to have their $30.00 a month income to recoup the cost.
3. There are too many iClones out there on other networks currently and coming very soon. If 14 year old Lindsay wants a cool iPhon-y phone NOW and AT&T is out for months... this Veruca Salt wanna-be is going to get Sprint or Verizon's iClone. While there are two other big gaming platforms... none has the motion controls like the Wii. It was a very different product. (Not saying the iClones are exactly the same... but more similar to each other than the XBox and the Wii.. in my opinion)
However, it is important to note that the low price point (now nearly EVERYONE can afford it) and the fact that current iPhone users can upgrade at a low price is going to make the iPhone 3g a VERY hot seller compared to last year.
