reuthermonkey: I don't want to bring this up again, because I think we're mostly in agreement (did you, uh, read my last big post? The one where I listed out reasons why Project Dark was *not* the iPhone? I'm not saying that Project Dark is the iPhone, so I don't get why you're so...perturbed), but you're a little off:
Apple does *not* have a unique plan revenue sharing scheme with AT&T any more. They did with the first iPhone, but the iPhone 3G (and now 3G S) follow the traditional carrier-subsidy model. This is why anyone on AT&T could buy an iPhone when it first launched, even if they had just received another phone - the iPhone wasn't subsidized (which is why it was $600!). They changed that with the iPhone 3G. This is why iPhone users could easily upgrade to the iPhone 3G, despite still being on contract, but iPhone 3G users could not upgrade to the iPhone 3G S.
The rest of what you say is sort of...obvious. (T-Mobile won't get the iPhone until AT&T's exclusive agreement ends? You don't say! Now, when does it end? January 1? June 30? 2010? 2011?)
I've never read someone so emphatically "correcting" someone who, uh, agrees with them. And then talk about "wasting people's time"...
