      Are there any difference in buying the new model compared to the old regarding AT&T?
      I got mine from the US, but live in Denmark - so i never used the AT&T... Will this still be possible?

      Hey Amit,

      The 3G iPhone will default back to EDGE data support in areas where there is no 3G coverage.

      However users will still have to pay for 3G data i.e. $30 per month. It is important to note here that this is a standard procedure for data plans on 3G-enabled smartphones so it is not something different for the 3G iPhone.

      cheers!

      I saw an article in the NYtimes that if you buy the new 3G iPhone and sign up for a new 2 year contract that you will then be locked in with that phone for two years. And will not be able to upgrade even if Apple comes out with a new version(which we all know will happen-see xmas last year). This is a dealbreaker for me. And for iphone/Apple lovers as well. Why would I want to be stuck with the same phone for for two years if they come out with a better one. Any more info on this?

      I know, i hear ya, im getting kinda sick of it too. Plus just sell the dam iphone if people can pay cash. This would be a good way to help poor people biuld credit but they just don`t want to deal with the poor ,,,,it has nothing to do with unlocking trust me. Just call the iphone "go phone line" and take a listen to how rude the bot voice is at att. I did not buy into a class war but more and more it seems like i did. If you do not have any credit they still sell you the iphone but they put you on a "go phone account".That cost more and give less mins such a way to treat people is very sad. Might they have some bad karma calling?humm!

      I just bought a 3G iPhone and signed up for a 3G plan. I'm regretting it now cos I just found out that there's no 3G coverage where I live. Can I call AT&T and revert to my original 2G plan?
