    Roger's has just dropped the 16GB iPhone 5 to $99 on a 3 yr plan. The soon to be replaced 32GB GS3 is going for $99 on a 3 yr plan. A price drop like this for Apple this early is unheard of. Apple finally feeling the pinch? I think so.

    Wow, you're so upset at this news that you decided to put words in my mouth. Where did I say Apple dropped the price.
    BTW, don't for one second think Apple has no involvement with this. As I said, this has never happened in the history of the iPhone. Why Now? One word: Competition!

    3 year contract? Forget that noise. But makes sense. 2 year contract in the US is $199.

    How many more accounts do you use to troll here?

    Samsung will not be pleased at your cover being blown this way. Either opt for self-immolation or wait for the inevitable knock at the door. :D

    I'm not a fan of 2 year contracts never mind 3. That's too long.
    Who keeps the same phone for 3 years nowadays?

    I think a better question is how does a phone last 3 years nowadays? My 4S was in perfect condition, never dropped, not a scratch. Had that for 16 months before the lock button broke. Even getting a phone to last the 2 year contract is very hard to do.

    Yeah, not having an upgrade for 3 years would suck.

    Oh, I'm sure this isn't the last we've seen of this troll. When you're going to troll with multiple accounts, why stop at two?

    exactly.... forget the initial price, it could be 0$ to buy and 100$ a month, the OP would see it as a good deal as it was free lol

    And in the UK it's not uncommon for iPhones to be free when purchased with a contract. What's your point?

    Don't forget there's competition within service providers too.

    I agree completely, but I know several. My mother in law wanted an iPhone, and went last year to get one. She got a 3G 8GB iPhone for "free" and signed up for a 2 year contract. It was outdated when she got it, and I cringe when I see it.

    Worst of all, she wanted to make sure it was safe, so bought an $80 OtterBox case...


    There are others that have done similar things, but it just goes to show you that someone will sign up for it.
