AT&T and Apple not taking iPhone 3G pre-orders, but Optus is

AT&T and Apple not taking iPhone 3G pre-orders, but Optus is

AT&T and Apple are not taking pre-orders for the iPhone 3G, due on July 11th, through either their online stores or retail outlets, possibly because the new phones will be subsidized and may require in-store activation at the time of purchase.

Australian iPhone 3G carrier Optus, however, is taking reservations for the iPhone. Customers can place a $100 "fully refundable holding deposit" that will guarantee "priority queuing, and (the ability) to purchase the iPhone 2 hours before everyone else."

Optus says "Whether you purchase your iPhone or not, your deposit will be credited back to your credit card within 5 working days of the launch date."
