given a 30day return policy, how many of you plan to purchase one with the intent of "trying it out" for that time period?

I don't know. Cingular's policies are beginning to make me unhappy. I hope it's a false alarm about them pulling unlocked 680s off the market(see the 680 forum). Then there's the reps pulling a fast one with people's plans. That one's been confirmed.

I think i'd rather test it out in a store even if I have to go back several times...these contracts are always hard tog et out of and all the fine print...it's the same with anything/anyone though and not exclusive to cingular...always some fee invovled or some loophole for them to charge you!

I would love to play with one, but from what I know already it wont meet my needs. Who knows, maybe when it comes to UK at the end of the year things will look different.

i personally have never had a problem walking back into any cellular retailer to return the respective product within their 14-30 day return policies.

back to the poll!

My thoughts too. I'm sure I'll have a play but a whole lot of boxes would have to be checked before I'd part with the cash. Carrier with decent data prices, 3G, touchscreen (incl. keyboard) usabilty, apps to meet my needs, decent battery life, call quality, device cost, etc, etc. All the usual stuff. I guess one of the advantages of being in the UK is having several months to read user reports from the US before temptation sets in :)

i look at it this way: i don't mind the cost of carry....if i like it, if it meets my needs and all else remains constant, then i'd keep it.

if i don't like it i'll return it. trying it out in the store doesn't work for me. it's got to be put through all of the daily paces and random activities.

But the problem here is, the iPhone will be tied to only ATT and so that needs to be taken in as a factor. People are going to be stuck with a carrier for this phone.

In Northern New England Cingular coverage is between spotty and nonexistant. All the iPhone toting inside-the-495 beltway techies are going to be +issed when they find that they have no signal at their favorite ski mountains. No signal at Killington. None at Attitash. None at Sugarloaf.

I think it let's you dismiss some phones but I agree it certainly isn't the same as actually getting it home. I had that problem with a Vario II (TyTN by another name) - seemed fine in the shop, went home and ordered it on the net, hated it within hours of its arriving.
