Themes has problem, mostly they only chance something and the whole UI just doesn't look unified it looks like different parts clued together which is total crap. It's not easy to redesign the whole OS graphics. So mostly those themes just look stupid or amateur.

That's why i prefer the original look which was made for OS, i have never changed my windows theme, i have tryed different ones but always got back to original which was designed by microsoft, it just looks best overall.

That tell your how vulnerable this country its; because these people can't even afford an new iphone4 for $100-200. Instead their stuck with 2 more yrs contract on a 2 yrs old 3GS phone...
Wake up peoples, if your can't afford don't even botter to sign up a dumb contract.

So maybe not such a bad screen after all.

So Iphone is worth $0???

Hmm .. i won't spend Euro 1000 bucks for an Iphone 4S (ugly looking) and i won't spend $0 for an Iphone 3GS(less ugly looking) ..

On avearage i'll still stick to freedom, unique, customizable, creative phones .. which is ndroid based phones~~ Hehe~

"With the price dropped to $0, the two-year old phone is getting a great response from buyers, says AT&T."

You cannot talk about byers when the price is $0 :-P
Yeah I know its on a two year contract... but people that get a phone were going to get that anyway maybe with same company maybe with another... but still.

about the contract every people have different need just adjust with your budget.

When will GSMArena will study the operators' offering, country by country ?
This is a massive and deep field of analysis that needs reporting. As noted below by a reader, what is the rationale to pay the same amount every month for a free phone on contract than someone that got a 450$ mobile phone for 50$ upfront with the same conditions?
How does it work?
By law, in France, the operator must give the unlock key to its client after 6 month of use of its phone. How does it work elsewhere ?
