    I have read some stuff about subsidized pricing, can somebody tell me the price I will be charged for taxes? I am in California.


    Thanks

    The Tax % will vary depending on what City and Tax District you live in.

    I live in Modesto, Ca and our tax is 7.35%, but I work in San Jose, Ca and the tax there is 8.25%

    As of October 1, 2011

    california requires a tax on the full unsubsidized price. if you're buying the $199 model (which costs $649 retail), you'll be expected to pay around $250. the exact amount depends on where exactly you live.

    The upgrade fee will show on your next wireless bill (I believe its $18).

    If you buy the $199.99 phone, it's total will be $259.49. You are taxed on the full price of the phone, not the discounted price.
    Is that what you're asking?
