If you think you're upset because you haven't been able to get ahold of an iPhone 3G yet, or maybe DHL bungled your delivery, that's nothing compared to the people who pre-ordered iPhone 3G's from T-Mobile Germany. Those who pre-ordered the device through the company have been shipped paper iPhone 3G cutouts.
Looking to get out of a contract with T-Mobile in the U.S. so you can switch to an iPhone on AT&T? For those who aren't near the end of their T-Mobile contracts, the only way to get an iPhone any time soon will be to get out of your contract. Most of the time this will mean paying a few hundred bucks in cancellation fees, but as of July 1st there could be a way to get out of your contract fast without paying another dime.
