Oh wow, i really feel bad for you US iPhone users. First you get pumped bout MMS and tethering in the new iPhone OS 3.0 , than you find out that AT&T says, sorry but even if u get this services NOW, you cant use them. If you checked out Apple site, you know that it was updated. And all the information about the new iPhone 3GS is available. How many of you did you read the fine print at the bottom of the page?
If you were pumped by the new iPhone, my guess is that you will be really really disappointed. Thanks to iTom, and previously twitted by me , you can now be informed, and wont get a heart attack or something when you’re at AT&T trying to get the new iPhone 3GS.
