iPhone 3G
The iPhone you've been waiting for. Coming soon. On O2 at The Carphone Warehouse
iPhone 3G

Put 11 July in your diary now.

Not long to go now. iPhone™ 3G is about to be launched exclusively on O2 and it's available at The Carphone Warehouse from 11 July*.

Make a note of the date. Demand is set to be huge, so if you want to be one of the first to own iPhone 3G, make sure you drop into your local Carphone Warehouse store early on 11 July.

iPhone 3G redefines what a mobile can do - again.

With fast 3G wireless technology, GPS tracking, support for enterprise features like Microsoft Exchange, and the new App Store, iPhone 3G puts even more features at your finger tips.

And like the original iPhone, it combines three products in one - a revolutionary phone, a wide-screen iPod, and a breakthrough Internet device with rich HTML email and a desktop-class web browser.

We'll be in touch soon so you can be amongst the first to own iPhone 3G.

Yes, the email has been posted on another thread... interesting tho that CPW send out emails before o2!

The activation is a 2 part process from what I understand... the network unbrick the handset then the customer activates it on the itunes at home.... Just like if you did a iphone replacement at the moment

On thinking about this- besides the pay monthly statement nothing else in that e-mail is actually what we haven't heard already from O2... and frankly the wording is very similar to the initial O2 e-mail especially in terms of "
