    Hey folks. I need some advice from the more experience iPhone users. I want one. Plain and simple. I live in Germany, but get paid in dollars. Telekom has the 2G (8GB) iphone for 1 euro, and for 99 euro you get a bunch of stuff with it: iPhone dock, stereo-headset, and 2 types of cables.

    Is the 3G worth an extra $300 minimum? They did not know what the price will be, but it will be cheaper then the original 400 or so they paid. Could be 200 euro, could be 300. Dont know for sure.

    This offer expires on 30 June. I am trying to hold out until they know the prices, but part of me thinks that a 1 euro iphone is a way better deal then a 3G 200 euro phone.

    What say ye?

    That is one heck of a deal for the original iPhone. It looks like it all cones down to whether or not you need the faster network or not.

    The extra speed would be nice, and the GPS option would be really cool, since i am new to the city.

    What to do...what to do...

    iPhone 3G is $199 USA / £99/£0 UK + contract (Free with a higher monthly fee)
    Could be similar in Germany? All depends on contract prices, it might not be a big difference.
