    The iPhone in UK gives you 1200 min for $76 US dollars.
    I know the dollar value is sh*t these days, but the difference in minutes for what you pay in America is RIDICULOUS!!!

    EU's don't get charge for incoming minutes, have continent wide 3G network, and charge a lot less. Our own telecom companies milk us dry. Well, no wonder American purchase power is on the floor. Oh yeah! and General Petraeus says he doesn't know why the hell we are in a war!

    All cellular providers in the U.S., including AT&T, really RIP US OFF!

    ok, so I was right in my last post, just for the wrong reason, they are paying $109 US. you are converting for Euros and they don't use euros in the UK, they use pounds. its roughly double what the american dollar is worth. so they are actually paying more than us =P

    More like $110/mo for 1200min....

    So many Americans seem to think the UK is part of the Eurozone...:rolleyes:

    Ah don't worry, us Brits are always ripped off too. Never include us in "EU", we'd rather drift over the pond to the US any day! :)
