    Hey guys, incase you haven't noticed I made this thread not to get flamed by people saying 'If you can't afford it, then don't buy it' Don't bother, I won't listen.
    This is directed mostly to the AUS iPhone.
    Cmon guys, seriously the iPhone is not affordable for everyone or more affordable in the long run.
    Not only does pre-paid cost over $800 (which is not very affordable for most people unless you're loaded) But the subsidized cost is still more than they said for it to be!
    For 16gb on the $49 optus cap, If you pay for the iPhone upfront thats a whole $504 out of your pocket, ASWELL as the $49 you pay for the period you chose, the $504 was from the 24month cap.

    Apple claimed that it would be 'More affordable for everyone' But pretty much they should have said 'More affordable for everyone*must sign up to a 12\24month plan, Have good credit, prices may vary, higher but not lower.'

    Anyways I'm done ranting, I won't be getting the iPhone until it decreases in price. Hopefully by christmas.

    Remember, don't flame.

    BTW. sorry for stating the obvious but I'm a tad annoyed with it all.

    If this is an Oz specific thread, then change the title to indicate that. Might help with your no flame policy.

    I don't think the iPhone is cheaper for anybody. Only in the initial price if you're lucky enough to get it subsidized.
