    Knowing apple and cingular, they are going to be very well stocked on this new product.

    You might do well to wait a month or so though. Let iPhone "cut its teeth" on other users - wait for the first impressions to come out. If there are any bugs in the initial version, it would be useful to let those work their way through the system before you buy one. That is my plan anyway. To my mind this is a "gotta have it" device, but I think I will wait until I read some reviews and see how it is working for real before I take the plunge.

    Hehe I don't know cingular at all but I worked in a large electronics store last year for about 5 months over christmas (comet) and we never had more than 2 iPods at a time. I'm talking their biggest store in the UK here lol so maybe the stock won't be so great

    When you get the FCC involved, it could be quite a while before anyone will actually own one. Also, it wouldn't be a big surprise if the iPhone that is actually released doesn't have all the great features that people are looking forward to. The FCC is very strict when it comes to devices that are capable of sending and receiving information/data. This could possibly take a rather long time.

    Well, Apple said June...and they no doubt, mean it. When they announce dates, they don't miss them (unless IBM is involved).

    I don't have cingular, but my friends all got razrs when they came out.. the cingular store was well stocked with them... and just last month, i went to the apple store, they had so much stock of macbooks, imac,s and macbook pros that they were not in the back, the display computers were taken out and they had the boxes up the walls. (and this was not a small store either.. its actually one of the biggest i have been in)

    Edit: yes agree that the us government is worse then ibm when it comes to things like this.. knowing them they will make that thing safer then safe has to be, it probably will loose all of its features and come with a choking hazard warning
