    I was supposed to get my iPhone 3G yesterday put I didn't know that a Credit Card was required (waited 2hrs for that) so know I have to wait till Saturday. When I was at the Apple Store I saw a case that wanted as well. Now, my question is how will it cost for me to get the iPhone 3G 16Gb, 69.99 plan or 89.99 plan, and a 29.99 case?? My credit is good if that matters. I live in Los Angeles, CA. I think the tax is 8.25% but I am not sure.

    $300 for iPhone + ($70 x 24months) or $1680 + $30 case = approx $2010 for a 2 year contract

    with the other plan it reaches $2490 over 2 years

    Jumpin jesus on a pogo stick...
    This is basic effing math people
    A) $199 or $299 * local/state/county tax =$iPhone cost
    B) Service pkg of your choice = $Service pkg cost
    C) Case for phone $29.xx * local/state/county tax =$case cost

    To walk out the store you will need to be able to pay for A + C in cash/credit/debit/Gift Card

    B will be billed to you along with a $18 activation fee unless you talked them out of it.

    So take B * 24 + A+C = TCO

    How much did the iPhone cost you guys for the 16GB plus tax?

    Anyone can answer, but people from NYC or LI would be better.

    Jumpin jesus on a pogo stick newyorksole are you not capable of doing the math?:eek:
    A) $299 * local/state/county tax =$iPhone cost

    Service plans very so thats a wild card but A remains a constant.

    Thats a negative for people in Florida or at least Brevard county.
    I've seen receipts showing $199 + 0.06% tax rate = $210.94 and
    $299 + 0.06% tax rate = $316.94

    Must suck to get screwed by your state/county at every turn.:D

    strange my receipt from the apple store, in CA, shows:

    Sub-total 199.00
    Tax@8.25%

    Total $231.92

    i want my 20 or so bucks back.

    EDIT:

    I guess it's a california law and not apple / att's fault - http://www.boe.ca.gov/pdf/pub120.pdf
