This lag/delay is very annoying...Anyone else experience this ?
I agree - the delay is damn annoying. Waiting for improvements in 2.2 or else I am going back to 2.0.2

32100 for 8GB, 36950 for 16GB unlocked, good option if somebody wants to use with BSNL or something. ie if one can manage to find one in stock, buy it in HK and get it to India.

A walk to the Vodafone store is highly recommended, the price you have mentioned is the one last reported and they are offering EMI schemes. Your existing sim card should work, and plan i feel can be retained.

On the other hand, AirTel iPhone can be officially unlocked on completion of 1 year.

Its 199$ for 8gb there, if this method was possible the iPhone 3g would be flooded all over the place, like the previous iPhone.

Now you must sign a contract at the store itself to get the phone so no way to evade this anymore.

Although, i do hear that apple might go back to the sign up at home policy of the previous iPhone.

Keep your fingers crossed...

Yes you have to pay more for the contract. Check AT&T site for details.

Yes obviously... you pay almost 100$ a month depending on the plan you choose.

Besides you need a US social security number to sign it too.

You only get the $199 price if you qualify for it. I think you have to be an existing AT&T customer of good standing.
Also the 3G iPhone has not yet been unlocked. So it wont work in India, unless you use the simcard hacks.

Easiest way is to get one from Hong Kong. But they cost about $700.
