    Hi. I'm comparing which is cheaper. To buy a factory unlocked iPhone for almost usd1000 or go with a plan with fido Canada. In their site they are saying cdn299 for the iPhone 3gs 32gb plus what kind of plan is needed? Or free if u get a plan worth how much and lock in for how long? How much did you pay for yours with what kind of plan? Tks

    Just for the record :p, I paid £159 ($260) (CDN $284)for my iPhone 3G 16GB, bundled with a £35 18 month contract.

    But yes, call Fido for exact pricing, and draw your own conclusion.

    Rogers or Fido require you have a data plan in order to get the iPhone at the 199/299 price.

    I suggest going on Fido's website, or calling, seeing what kind of plans you like. You should be able to get something decent for $60/month, maybe less.

    I think I paid $430 for my phone + apple care. Later i returned my apple care because I was told I wouldnt need it plus I jailbroke my phone.

    Best part was i kinda got it free. I went to the casino the day before and won $700 :p

    $399(US) + sales tax .. so around $430 for my 16GB 3GS.

    Sold my old 8GB jailbroken/unlocked 3G on ebay for $350..

    So net cost for new 3GS = $80 + an extra yr of service with ATT.

    I'm happy :)

    Well, I've always bought AppleCare and all my iPhones have been JB. AppleCare also increases the resale value when I'm selling iPhones. And congrats on your casino win...:eek:

    Dang, I forgot that I had $55.00 in BB Reward Points....:eek:

    My iPhone 2G I paid 350eur when I was in Ireland. I bought it from the US and unlocked it.

    The 3GS I'll be buying when it's back in stock here in Australia will be AU$1039 which is....

    520 pounds
    605 eur

    Crazy prices I know but it's for the 32gb and it's factory unlocked. So when I move out of Australia in the new year and head to London I'll be able to pop in a British sim and not have to spend hours unlocking it :)

    I won't be jailbreaking. If it's factory unlocked I'll just pop my sim in and go :)

    I'm sorry, but I meant do you still JB with purplera1n and UL with purplesn0w, as we do in the states for your iPhones (not factory unlocked)?

    Nah I don't bother doing it mate. I don't see any reason too..... Unless I'm missing something crazy cool about JB?

    $500 for the iPhone that I got from the AT&T corporate store because I lost my old phone…

    Then $850 x2 for a black and a white iPhone factory unlocked.

    I'm happy. :)
