    Why would people sign up to 3 rather than Voda :confused:

    Got my phone last night...

    Waited maybe 45 mins in the line at Vodafone/Three..

    They pulled me to the front cause I was with Three =]

    Free drinks/food at The Ivy, then called down to get my phone just after 12:30am

    Apparently they only had 300 units!.. there were atleast 1k people lined up..

    I want to go with Telstra but why oh why do they have the sign up fee and the $199 unlock fee?

    That is so expensive. They could have lines as big as Optus if they lowered or removed these. Especially the sign up fee.

    EDIT - I am in idiot. I thought you had a montly fee to pay as well. Think I will go Telstra for sure

    Sounds pretty cool. If I'd known about the Ivy deal prior I'd have gone down for it. I've been with Vodafone for 10 years.. completed my second two year contract just recently. But their local support (Central Coast) sucks.. not a single phone in stock in stores here. Sigh.

    No online pre-orders at store.apple.com.au and still no pricing on their web site. I wonder how many more people are queuing up because of this?

    It's rediculous that none of this information is available on their web site even after launch. Someone at apple definitely dropped the ball.

    A workmate just brought his in, all I can say is the screen is freaking amazing.

    I haven't seen anything like it before, not that I have used any great screens in the past, but anyway, its just so clear.

    2 questions.

    Does Telstra allow teethering?

    And also was there ever a network unlock Jailbreak for the other Iphone's ie where I didn't have to pay Telstra but could get it done at the dodgy asian shop.

    If you're asking this in relation to the iphone 4, it's not a telstra thing. It's an iOS4 function. I've had teethering running on 3GS since iOS4 beta.

    Actually, the carriers can block it if they want. They can also charge more for data done via tethering. Just look at what AT&T do in the USA :)
