Now, before I start let me just say I think the iPhone is AMAZING, by far the best mobile phone i've ever used. The thing is though that on pay monthly it is $399 and im not sure how it works over there in the US but most, if not all, phones that are on pay monthly here in the UK are free to purchase then of course you pay your line rental each month. However, the iPhone, in the UK, is £269 to purchase and the cheapest tariff you can get is £35 a month, baring in mind Apple get 10% of all phone bills. Now, before this the most expensive pay monthly phone I ever saw was £50 to purchase and about £30 line rental a month and it was the Nokia N95, which costs £500 on PAYG, so you get the idea, Apple have made this thing pretty damn expensive. But its not just that, they have purposely crippled the iPod Touch to sell more iPhones. Not only that, but they are going to extreme lengths to make sure that the iPod Touch is not uncrippled, I mean they issued a take down WHILE A FILE WAS BEING UPLOADED! And theres even more, they stopped all the unlocks from working the the iPhone AND all 3rd party apps, and im almost sure they did that because they will get more money from everyones phone bills. Is it just me or is Apple becoming worse than Micro$oft and Sony?
