Cheaper by buying it in europe? You pay 569 euros which is 900 dollars just to have it. And then you need your rate plan.
Hell with it .. I will get myself a Nokia N96
Its missing decent camera .. video call .. bluetooth file transfer
The iPhone 3G 8GB will retail at 499 euro, while the iPhone 3G 16GB will cost you 569 euro.
>>> What a joke. Apple can keep their I-phone for that kind of $$$. What a rip off!
Guys listen anyone can tell me if i can order from apple site
and the second how much it is goonna cost?
The analysis is completely off the mark. Where does the author learn his finance. Come on, you get the services here! No service is offerred for free. Even when you get the iphone in the blackmarket you still need to pay for service to uses it. So adding all those service cost to the iphone and compare it to the black market price to buy one i "wrong". To be correct, you would need to compare the cost to obtain the phone with the service cost outside.
i guess s doing big mess here with contract and all , da price tag is do high which will make most of them to go 4 a usual mobile wander , many choices for us in the market , theres is Nokia N78 , N96 , 5320 , sony ,Samsung , Motorolola , LG . iphone will jsut slased out of the market if they dont reduce the price . ending days of iphone will shortly arrive when N96 ,C902 on market .
I hoped to buy a iPhone as my new mobile but its since no ways to use the iphone with out a contract and the bucks it will likely to cost though it says 199USD , i just depand with my favorite and usual Nokia , fck off iphone
From cheaper to the most expensive smartphone in market. Apple iPhone is the real phenomenon.

Really strange that this model does not have front camera for video calls. A big miss...
the data plan is optional and can actually save big bucks. Check out my experience with it at http://impeached.blogspot.com/2008/06/iphone-3g-isnt-as-expensive-as-you.html
Why buy an expensive crappy phone when HTC touch pro is way better and from the looks of it, CHEAPER!
