$850 : 64gb iPhone 6+
$65 : California tax
$40 : Upgrade fee


My poor wallet :(

I won't even bother with the iPhone 6 (not enough of a step up from my 5s), but looking at that near 1k figure is giving me second thoughts...

AT&T? Try their next program with mobile share.

All iphones have been nearly a grand, you just didn't realize it because of subsidies.

Same price they have always been.

And if you're paying full price, why do you have an upgrade fee?

People paid $1000 for the Motorola StarTAC. Many will also pay $1000 for the 6+

If you're paying $850 upfront for the device then why do you have to pay a $40 upgrade fee? What carrier is ripping customers off like that?

Even if I get the 2-year contract subsidy I still don't think of the phone as any less than what it actually costs MSRP. Helps to keep buying decisions in perspective and if they are worth what the seller is asking for.

LOL took me way too long to realize this... my first thought: "Wow, someone is trying to sell a 6+ 64 GB TODAY at $1k and someone was going nuts about it.

Then I saw Will22s post. Makes a bit more sense. lol.

Paid $1k+ for my 6+ and 6s+. 6s+ is paid off May 2018. Thinking of what it would be like not having a $44/mo phone payment for a few months --- waiting for the iPhone Xs (may-september 2018). lol.

I could live with a 128GB but My 256GB 7+ is more than half full. This new pricing might make me wait it out for a future model.

That's the best part. 3 years ago someone was already complaining about $1000 on a phone.
Can't blame them. Apple's highest end smartphones are extremely pricey. The 6+ was just a gigantic overpriced device. 1GB RAM safari and app refreshes lol? I had more RAM on the GS3 haha. The Plus line still doesn't have software to maximize its display.
