    A good estimate would be the current iPhone 4S prices.

    The iPhone will most likely follow the same pricing as before.

    Base model with two year contract: $199
    Second model with two year contract: $299
    Off contract: $599

    Carriers know the magic number never to cross (if you want to be successful) is the "$199 with two year contract" number. $250 is too high and people will naturally lean away from it.

    is off contract really only $599? That doesn't seem right b.c why would anyone do subsidized upgrades....

    $199(2 year price)+$250(upgrade price)+$36(activation price) = $506+ tax....that seems like a rip off.

    i thought off contract was closer to $700

    I'm thinking $650. And yes, subsidized upgrades are ripoffs.

    I agree. It will be the same.

    I think it'll stay the same as what previous carriers offered when the other iPhones came out. I doubt the price will go up or down, but if it gets cheaper... :D:D:D

    In the Uk I typically pay £499.99 for my iPhones and expect the same for the next iPhone.
