Oz, 14 Jun 2011Overpriced? The prices for factory unlocked iphones 4 32gb on ebay it's over $1000 so ... moreThey keep the price high on ebay in order to do the same in the stores, because will think the way you do. Remember, Apple controls every aspect of their marketing, including what is sold where. Create the demand ( hype it up) and then control the supply. Supply & demand management 101.
$649 for the unlock iPhone 4 is a bargain... Not even close to overprice.. We in NZ = $1100. That is overprice..
I think this is a move by apple to cash in on the iPhone 4 before the iPhone 5(or 4g) is released. $499 for the 16gb would have been a good deal even though the iPhone is showing it's age now ...
I've never experienced LOCKED phones, as ALL gsm phones sold in my country (New Zealand) are unlocked including all iphones from day 1. So would anyone envy?? Please dont... I would rather have a LOCKED iphone and have so much more cheaper and free services... On going contract cost to have a smartphone in this country is so~~ expensive, and so little you get for it. EG; $50NZD per month (which is about $44USD) would get you 100MB (that's right megabites) of data, 60mins of calling and 500 txts. To go upto 3GB + 200mins of calling and 2000 txts, you'd pay about $95USD per month.... which is still so little still
The prices for factory unlocked iphones 4 32gb on ebay it's over $1000
so $749 I think that it's a great deal

[deleted post]Those are HUGE phones, you know most of people still buying smaller touch screen phones, not those huge 4,3" there's market of them too, but it's not iPhone's target group=average people.
"but either way thoes Hardcore Apple Fan Boys"
I think they had it already a long time ago, AVERAGE PEOPLE is buying iPhones now, that's why it sells so much. Apple made tech easy and fun to use=key to success
Aaron, 14 Jun 2011iPhone is iPhone. All the others are copied from it. The original is still the best.iPhone was far from first, so it can never be the original.
That doesnt say its not the best for you...
but certainly not for me.
But its no original!
that's a good news..but its too expensive!its not realistic or practical...
