    Hello everyone. I just finished pre-ordering the iPhone 4S, and decided that I would like to help you out by posting my own cost analysis :apple:

    Any discussion about additional features of each carrier and possible extras or differences I may have missed are totally relevant. Feel free to post :)

    :apple: Please Bump the post so others can benefit!!!! :apple:

    It would be really awesome if a mod could sticky this for a day or two. :cool:

    FYI those are not unlocked prices, they're unsubsidized prices. Unlocked will probably be $50 more, only work with GSM and not come til November.

    I think Apple already posted some prices for the unlocked phones. I may be wrong though. Do you have a source or sources?

    Yeah I guess your prices are actually for the unlocked phone. It is strange that they are the same as locked unsubbed ones, so I wouldn't be surprised if either locked goes down or unlocked goes up.
    I believe you're right but the misunderstandings come from 2 places:
    1) the $10 is separate on the plan page even though it makes no sense to get an everything data plan without a smartphone, and
    2) It used to be a 4G only charge and since the iphone isn't 4G, many think it won't incur this charge. As near as i could tell when looking it is now just a smartphone charge, so iphone users will pay it.
