So, finally got the iphone (I pre-ordered at the app store) but the apple store where I went to couldn't hook me up, since I have been an att customer too long apparently. They were very nice, but I had to find an ATT store (which hooked me up) to update my account and get it going. But, something I found odd, is that apparently in CA, we pay TAX on the FULL VALUE of the device, which for the 32gb 3Gs is 699$, so the tax is like 65$ (which doesn't make sense since tax in this area is 10.25%) Regardless, even though the purchase price for a customer eligible for upgrade (I haven't had a new phone in six years on ATT, customer for nearly 20 years with ATT wireless) is 299$, with tax it comes out to 367$? Apparently, in CA one pays tax on full value, even though an essentially instant rebate is applied? Was this true for everyone buying in CA? I haven't seen it posted here, I can imagine we need the extra tax revenue to fill the dang 24BILLION DOLLARS budget deficit.
