Apple iPhone 5 preorders debuted at 3:00 AM EST today giving folks in the west coast an unfair advantage. The delivery times are now showing a 2 week delay at Apple. Ordering from your carrier (in may case, AT&T which still says the iPhone 5 can be delivered on Sep 21st) or Walmart (at a discount, no less!) might be your best bets.
Ordering from your carrier is always the best route if you get some employer discounts. I ordered through AT&T Premier and got the upgrade fee waived automagically and …
Apple and AT&T decided that it is a great idea to charge for FaceTime on the iPhone! If you have a grandfathered unlimited data plan, you will not be able to FaceTime over cellular network. iOS 6 beta builds did not enforce the restriction but iOS 6 GM build (Gold Master) wasted no time splashing this message when I tried using FaceTime. AT&T expects you to sign up for their mobile share option which is expensive if you have only a line or 2 in your account. I have an …
AT&T wasted no time in buying T-Mobile while Sprint were supposedly eyeing T-Mo. This is indeed great news for the consumers given the hassles with iPhone unlocking in the US GSM market. The 1700 GSM band that T-Mobile used exclusively for 3G network barred many iPhone users to compromise on data speeds to settle for EDGE speeds.

Google chose T-Mobile for providing faster data support in …
Just a shout to those early adopters who stood in line for an iPhone and got a new line activated such that the contract can be terminated after a month by paying the ETF ($175) and owning the device without an enormously huge data plan requirement! Things get really interesting now! What if you slide a SIM with iPhone 2G plan into the 3G iPhone – will we be able to save $15 every month by gaining 200 free SMS messages and 2G data plan pricing!
In effect, for a 16GB …
iPhone 2.0 »
Yay, the much awaited June 9th (one of the hottest days this summer – 96 F) finally takes its toll where Apple is prepping to launch some amazingly interesting technology this afternoon, be it Mac Touch, iPhone 3G, revised Macbook/ Pro, scrapping out Macbook air (kiddin’!), or a completely different product!
iPhone 2.0 at a subsidized price ($200) means true brand loyalty (ATT) : Only real ATT users are entitled for the huge discount, Apple might sell the unlocked iPhones directly from their site at normal prices which might well put …
