AT&T letting its employees know that the iPhone is coming in June?

AT&T letting its employees know that the iPhone is coming in June?
Certainly something like this was bound to happen, especially now when we're only less than a couple weeks away from the Worldwide Developers Conference 2010 where we'll all be witnessing the audacious revealing for the next generation iPhone. Back in the middle of April, we heard how AT&T told its employees that they were not going to authorize any vacations for the month of June – which was one of the first telling signs that we would see a launch some time then. Now it looks more like a reality after BGR has reported that AT&T has come out and finally confirmed to its employees that the long awaited release for the next iPhone will happen in June as opposed to July. Summer has been officially here, but now June is looking to be one the hottest month for the mobile community – just in the first week alone, we're going to see quite a few handsets make a splash. Naturally the only thing left to figure out is an actual launch date, but we'd imagine it should be revealed sooner than we all think.

Am I the only one who thought "duh" after reading this? And correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that Summer isn't "officially" here til June 21.

Summer is 6/21, yes, but my brother works in management for AT&T (so, that makes me the phonearena insider, lol) and no one has mentioned when the iphone is to be released. PHONE ARENA - stop making up things - APPLE is very tight lipped with IPHONE info - so tight that only the 5 top company execs know the real scoop. All we know, per PHONEARENA, LOL, is that june 7th STEVE JOBS is to announce the new iphone and no one has informed my brother of that - I am the one who did that.

oh, and by the way that tidbit about AT&T not authorizing any vacations in JUNE is totally bogus. My brother and 2 other managers in his call center are off for 10 days on vacation. If you want to get real facts, ask someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows a real AT&T employee.

Wait, my neighbors friend was friends with the cousin of the brother of the uncle of the friend who once owned a dog who was said to have been owned by a guy who saw Steve Jobs once. Needless to say this guy is a reliable source and he said it IS releasing in June...

New Sources and reporters cost money, why not just summarize and repost from other sources. Still generates the ad revenue and loyal followers like you and me.

The vacation blackout may not apply to AT&T call centers. I worked for them In retail during 2 iPhone launches and each year we would get emails around April about June blackout dates. Now if vacation was submitted before the blackout email arrived many times they would give u the option to take it or change to later date. Reason for the option is because of the union. Being that I'm not there this year if things changed then that's different but just going on info based on when I worked there. Also the call center person, are u an official AT&T employee or are u a West employee? That makes a huge difference being AT&T policy doesn't apply to u. Could also be why you have no clue about the email.

My brother is an AT&T employee and manager working in a WEST call center. No email in reagrds to JUNE blackout was given to him. He is not union since he is a manager.
