There’s a possibility Apple and AT&T may launch the iPhone 3G on the morning of July 11th rather than in the evening.
There’s an unsupported rumor floating around that AT&T store managers are being told that the July 11th iPhone 3G launch will kick off at 8:00 a.m. local time, rather than 6:00 p.m. like last year.
Unfortunately, the rumor is based off a single tip that several publications are working to confirm, but hadn’t as of press time. Such a move would obviously aim to ease first-day sales lines given that a new activation process will require customers to at least partially activate their new handsets during the point of sale.
Though Apple and its partners have been slow to release information regarding iPhone 3G launch procedures and call plan options, they eventually will and it will and all that information will be presented clearly and concisely for FryBlog readers. As such, it’s recommended that prospective buyers wait arrival of the official details in days ahead rather than get tangled up in rumors.
