    If you want to pre-order, is the price you pay the straight $299, $399, etc, or is there tax added at the end of your order?

    I'm in New Mexico, btw.

    Expect to be charged the sales tax according to your billing/shipping address.

    You're taxed if you have a physical store in your state.

    yes on sales tax! And here in california, you will get taxed the full amount of the phone ($649). So I will have to pay $50.30 (7.75% x $649.00) even though I'm getting the phone at a purchase price of $199 phone. :(

    Hey, fellow New Mexican!

    Yes, you'll be charged about ~7% sales tax, which I believe is our sales tax, doesn't matter if it is Apple or AT&T.

    That completely sucks! And you get charged taxes on the cell phone service too, it's not like you are getting a freebie...

    Yep it really sucks!:eek: I was wondering why I got charged $61.87 tax for the 32GB phone. It's been a while since I bought my last iPhone so I forgot about that part.
