    Ok now that I have your attention. This will only apply to new (1st Gen Activations).

    This information came straight from ATT rep.

    Why I feel this is important for some. I was thinking of getting a 1st generation for my wife Used in new condition because she will not use it to surf the net as I just bought her a new Sony vio. My idea was to save $15 a month. That is $10 increase for data and if you didn't know it yet you have to buy the 200 text messages (if you want to text) for $5.

    Well at this point I might as well get her a new 3g if it's going to be the same price per month as a first generation. Only good news is if you already have a plan stay on it. Second if you are thinking of waiting until the new 3g comes out before you buy a 1st gen hoping the price drops. Don't wait unless you are prepared to pay $35 per month for the same service you would get prior to july 11th for $20.

    Again this came straight from a Service Rep at ATT.

    OH and one more thing he said and before you flame me he said it not me.

    "The new Iphone 3g will have spyware on it that will report if you put any third party app's on your phone and it will be immediately shut down and become useless. So no more jailbreaking. Yeah that sounds like BS to me too but he said it.

    That's the only thing that might bother me, but I'm sure there's away around it.

    That would be illegal to break it just because it was tampered with. That like modifying a car and it has a chip that will cause the engine to explode. I say the whole thing is bull. The reason there raising the data plan for 3G is because the new one is subsidized. The old one wasn't so I dont see how they would raise prices

    I agree. They told us our phone would be bricked if we unlocked it after 1.2 and we are still going strong.
