AT&T Won't Be Taking iPhone Orders via Phone or Online, So Sayeth Sales Rep

More bad news, I'm afraid. Those of you who hoped to avoid the experience of camping out in front of AT&T Wireless stores by ordering the iPhone by phone or online are out of luck. I just spoke with a second AT&T sales rep who confirmed what a previous lackey told me; AT&T will only be selling iPhone to customers through their corporate stores on a first come, first served basis. No pre-orders, and no orders by phone or through the web.

The rep I spoke with did not know for certain how long this policy would continue, but hinted that it would go on well past June 29. So, bottom line - if you want an iPhone you must get in line, literally.

Isn't this fun? I'm thinking of becoming an alcoholic to pass away the time. Who wants to join me in a drink?

AT&T to Announce iPhone Data Plans on June 29, Bring Your Preparation-H

Along with the rollout of iPhone comes new data plan pricing, according to AppleInsider.

Meanwhile, Carter hinted that iPhone "may offer cool features such as unlimited Web browsing." However, customers should be prepared to pay extra for that luxury. "Regardless of which device you're using today, you pay us a certain amount for (voice) minutes, and you also pay us for data units," he said. "That is also true on the iPhone."

Wait, what? I already pay $19, on top of voice, for unlimited data, which includes all-you-can-eat web browsing. Is AT&T planning to further sodomize me with some form of premium iPhone-only data plan? In the words of the great Chinese philosopher, Confucius, "that's bullshit!".

[UPDATE:]Now AT&T is saying it will announce data pricing before launch day. Oh well, doesn't matter. The news won't be good. We're still getting screwed.

AT&T Discloses iPhone Crowd Control Strategy, with Bullets and Shoes

I'm less concerned about making my way through lines and more worried what will happen to me once I exit the store with iPhone in hand. I don't fancy having my new iPhone jacked by some street thug lurking around the parking lot, waiting to swoop down on unsuspecting victims as they approach their vehicles.

What AT&T needs more than anything is a constable standing outside its store to ensure that customers make it safely back to their cars.

Huge Line of Job Applicants at AT&T Store, Thanks to iPhone?

And I thought only consumers would be lining up outside of AT&T stores. Apparently waves of job applicants are gearing up to snatch positions generated from all the iPhone buzz.

This image scares the hell out of me because it confirms that iPhone mania that we've all joked about may in fact turn out to be true. On Friday June 29, I and thousands of other consumers will standing in lines very similar to the one you see above, in order to get an iPhone. The thought that I may end up wasting my time in a long queue and coming home empty handed doesn't exactly sit well with me.

iPhone, You're no iPod...And Your Mother Dresses You Funny

Saabira Chaudhuri of Fast Company believes iPhone doesn't have the chutzpah to capture the same success achieved by its cousin, the iPod.

The iPod set an impossibly high bar, one that the iPhone will not match or even come close to. But the new device could still be very successful, particularly in the long term. By combining a phone, a music player and an Internet device all in one, while coupling them with the most user friendly interface it could conceive of, Apple aims to embody one of the most fundamental ideals that underlies modern day consumerism: convenience.
