    FULL retail....WOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!! :( :eek: :mad:

    1. $849 + 8.5% sales tax in SF = $920 + $55 to ship it to be in Greece = around $972

    Anyone got any other ideas, in terms of shipping???

    Buying it on Credit Card, Yeah I'm gonna take a small hit on interest for a few months but it's still far cheaper over 2 years than taking out another contract with Three.

    Outright at full price. That will be £789 in the UK.

    This should be a very interesting release year. Let's see how sales go over, now that carriers have forced everyone to truly experience the REAL cost of the phones.

    Selling my 6s. Charging the difference on my MasterCard. Seems easier than begging Verizon to let me upgrade early. (Still have a year on my contract.) By the time the 7 rolls around. I will sell my 6s, and use that to pay for a 7 on contract. Maybe do the Apple financing for a new phone every year.

    Paying with credit card, then paying bill in full when it arrives. It's going to sting, but it's only once every couple years (for me, anyway).

    Using carrier financing. Zero interest so why not. Plus I should be able to get at least $550 out of my 6 Plus to offset the overall cost.

    I would use Apple's new program to get the unlocked phone if they didn't require Apple Care +. Since they do and the value of 0% financing on something as small as a phone isn't worth the hassle to me, I'll be paying in full for mine and my wife's phones.

    Outright through AT&T NEXT. I can't stand for paying for a random line I only use to upgrade or signing two year contracts. I like to upgrade every years so for me There's no question NEXT is the best route. Ordering at 3am EST

    Outright and AT&T Next are opposites. Sure you don't have a contract with Next, but you are financing the phone and you do agree to keep service active until you pay the phone off. If you look at your My AT&T account it will show your service commitment date which will go through the date when you are expected to pay it off.

    Buying outright is paying full price at the time of purchase. The phone will still be locked to the carrier you activate it on, but most carriers including AT&T will unlock it for you. A few months after release Apple typically offers factory unlocked phones for full price.

    Lol. I know. I work for AT&T. Not changing carriers. If you lay $650-$950 for a phone regardless of financing or down at time of purchase, it's 6 of 1 half a dozen of the other to me lol.

    I am currently undecided, I will either be purchasing it on an interest free Credit Card or I will be taking out the new O2 30gb contract with yearly upgrade options.
