    Hello guys,

    I have been waiting years so apple and att decide to launch the iphone here in Puerto Rico, for some reason after all this wait there will be no iphone. I knwo i can uncloked and the few people i know with one it works great and all feature does. The problem is that it seem the only way i can get one is thru ebay and they are selling for $750-900. I maybe can pay 500 maybe 600 at top for 16 gp but +800 is way too much.

    Sometimes i think how come its so hard to get one here for a fair price... ohh well i am just looking for suggestion ways i might get one that i snot ebay for a fair price. Tried with a family member going to usa but they finally did not go. Paying for a trip there dont worth the iphone. any suggestion let me know.

    The reason why they're 700-800 dollars is because the total cost of purchasing one from Apple is ~550. Advertised price of $199/$299 is for those intend to keep the phone and remain as AT&T customer.

    Paying a premium of $150-$200 or roughly 30% is not that bad, all depends on how much you want it. Can't afford it? Move on.

    Is not that i cant afford it, I am willing to pay 500-600 but 800 is just not worth it. To tell you the truth after making this thread. Is better to buy an ipod touch 32 gb new gen + HTC Touch HD and i am gettgin a way better deal for 700-800
    the htc has better camera, better sxreen and better sms and for the other stuff the touch with more space than 16 gb.
