    dont get me started... i paid $300 for a phone & SMS... all of the other features of a "smart phone" that were so touted in the introduction of the iPhone are also on the half-the-price iPod Touch...

    iPhone Price Drop

    11:12am - "But we want to get even more aggressive with this. Take a look at the iPhone. You know, the surveys are in: the customer satisfaction numbers on the iPhone are off the charts. They're higher from iPhone owners than any Apple product. Ever. They LOVE them. We want to make the iPhone even MORE affordable for even more people."

    "So we're going to do something about that today. We're on track to ship our 1mth iPhone this month -- to get ready for the holidays here's what we're going to do. It's clear clear customers want the 8GB model -- it's not going to sell for 599 anymore.

    "Starting today effective immediately, we're pricing it at just $399."

    WOW!!! $399 8gb iPhone!

    Welcome to mobile phone pricing...there is always an early adoption premium.

    Ditto here. I plan to go by the Apple Store later today and raise some serious hell about this.

    8GB iPhone price drop to $399

    After only three months, they're dropping the price by $200? And deleting the 4GB iPhone?

    I know there's a "bleeding edge" penalty, but jesus. There's a lot of pissed-off iPhone owners right now. I'm sure. :mad:

    Everyone has said that the iPhone price would drop shortly after its intro and anyone who bought it would be paying a premium...

    I'm 3 days past the 14-day return period. I want my $200 also. I must say as a first time Apple product buyer, I'm severely disappointed.

    I'm so angry right now. Talk about customer loyalty - Apple can screw themselves.

    See even your precious Apple thought that the 4 GB version was inferior.

    Go out and buy one if you haven't already kiddies...

    You got that right. I've had my iPhone since 6/29, so we're talking about roughly $100 PER MONTH that I paid to be an early adopter of a $600 item.
