    When taking population into account, these sales are pretty brisk and on a par with the States if true. One thing is for sure - I trust the FT more than the anecdotal tales of "my mate at Carphone Warehouse says they are selling poorly" around this forum. I think though that a price drop in the next few months to bring it a little more in line with the UK market (say, £149), would really have an affect.

    I'd much rather see a cheaper tariff than a drop in the handset.
    Minimum of £35 ($70) is unbelievable, especially for 18 months.

    Hmm. I think a drop in the device cost would have a greater impact as its the biggest barrier to entry, though ideally both would be reduced.

    They pay $60 minimum over 24 months in the States.
