    I have no idea why the iPhone has never been released in Puerto Rico.

    You guys have no idea how mad I got after selling my HTC Kaiser in just a few weeks before the 11 of July. The day came and what happened?! NO iPhone!

    What should I do?
    What you guys can say to me

    I think my only hope is to be able to activate it via iTunes...but it's not possible or is it?

    wouldn't you have known in advance whether the iphone would be released where you are? you can buy the 1st generation iphone, jailbreak and unlock it to use with an unsupported carrier

    Well, if the iPhone were to be released in Puerto Rico, it would definitely be announce anywhere possible by the carrier. If it did, don't expect it to be in stock, or purchasing it without a contract agreement.

    Good place to look for is eBay.

    The reason Apple may not want the iPhone in Puerto Rico could be it could disrupt the sales of the iPod. Also remember that Peurto Rico is a territory and not official a state, how is the 3G coverage.

    There are many phones here with 3G technology for few years now, and the Kaiser I sold also had 3G. I still don't get the territory thing because we Puertorricans are part of the USA and still other contries in Latin America got the iPhone.

    Gracias por tu ayuda.

    My brother have the money for the iPhone because i gave it to him. He can get me one from New York and send it to me.

    But how will I be able to use it here? Isn't it supposed to be activated in store now?

    Or did anyone found a new method to activate it not from the ATT store?

    esmandau, if you don't mind. May I have your e-mail address so I can add you to my msn messenger and answer you through there?

    Thanks for your help.

    AT&T is here in PR yet the iPhone is not. Too many rumors to really know why.

    At any rate I have a white 16 Gig I picked up in NY a week ago. 3g works great along with the GPS.

    Who knows when they'll decide to bring it here.

    By the way to use it with AT&T here in PR an unlock is NOT required, just activation.

    This can be accomplished by pwning the phone.

    Man.. but how can you buy the Phone without having to activate it in the store?

    My brother told me that he has tried and wasn't able to do it.

    Bump!

    If you have family in the continental US, have them buy it and ship it to you.

    Did activate it in the store...non-PR number.

    There were rumors the phone could be bought without a contract...albeit at full price. I didn't look into it however.

    I was just at the apple store here in Michigan and there's no way they were letting me out without activation.. I like my 1st gen anyways.. But if someone needed one I could buy it add it to my plan and you can tell them you want no data plan and no txt plan then it's just 10 a month on my plan and u can cancel the extra line next month with no fee I believe. So let me know if u need one for instore price plus shipping and the 10 bucks extra line cost for a month..
