It's been almost a year since I got my iPhone 3G, and I never upgraded to 3GS due to personal preference (and abiding to my contract lol). It just came into my mind the amount I've spent all in all just for my iPhone alone, and I was quite surprised. To start with, I've created a list of what I bought arranged based on when I bought it iPhone 16GB 3G $499 Accessories purchased: iPhone Apple Care $69 Griffin Elan Form $25 Incase Black Matte Slider $35 Griffin's PowerJolt Car Charger $20 PS Anti-Glare $15 PS Clear Air Jacket $35 Switcheasy CapsuleNeo Black $30 Griffin's iTrip AutoPilot $75 (on sale) iMax External Battery $50 (on sale) Griffin iClear $20 SGP Anti-fingerprint film $12 Switcheasy Rebel Serpent $27 iFrogx Luxe Case $10 (on sale) Sony CD Clock Radio for iPhone $99 Zagg's Back InvisibleShield $10 (on sale) BSE Back skin $7 (recent, currently using) iSkin Solo FX Red $25 (recent, on sale, currently using) Motorolla S9-HD $60 (recent, on sale, waiting for arrival) Note: the ones in RED where returned and got credit for So in a year-long course of having this amazing iPhone, I've spent US $537 for accessories alone - damn! It's more than the iPhone itself Unbelievable, I never thought I could've spent that much in just a year, still I really really love this device. If I counted my app purchases then that's gonna be a different story, but yeah.. this iPhone can really get expensive in the long run, but the phone itself is worth it. The hunt for the best case, as you can see, really kept me purchasing.
