    Just told me that with a 2 year contract the iphone comes out to 200 and 300. I find this hard to believe but he told me it was true again this not concrete information. I do not believe it is true because thats seems way too cheap for the iphone. Just something that was told to me by an aT&t employee.

    Goes against everything that's being said, even from Apple.

    i hope he's wrong. if it was that cheap really EVERYBODY would have it, and that makes me not want it.

    i highly doubt it. call every apple and at&t store near you, as well as at&t customer service a hundred times. i guarantee every answer will be $499 and $599, no discounts of any kind at all. i think your friend is just looking to get people excited, or he's basing the pricing off of every subsidized they carry.

    Why?


    Thats makes you no better then people who buy things because everyone else is. You wouldn't be buying the iPhone because its good/does what you want/ whatever you reason, but to make yourself "different"

    so you're buying the phone simply because its expensive and it makes you look good not because of the phone's great technology. you just want to be able to say you're the only one with it. :rolleyes:

    pretty much. i like the latest and greatest. i don't like having the same old crap everyone else has, no matter what it is. its also why i've never bought a cell phone in america before. I do love everything about the technology inside the iPhone as well, however, or I wouldn't be buying an american release phone. so sue me.

    Apparently YES, since he paid $150 just for the color of his MacBook.

    I doubt they'll be that low, but there are plenty of credible articles out there projecting that Apple will be pretty quick to come down on prices for the iPhone simply because of the glut in the market with competitive releases of other phones in '07. Apples' projected profit with the 8gb iPhone is something like 53% per item over actual cost.

    I'd like to believe the rumor.

    So why'd you get the MacBook? Yuck...I for one, decided to get a MacBook Pro and have it painted by Colorware...now I'm better than you! Also, I'm spending over $900 for the iPhone after canceling out of Sprint....so take that pseudo-snobby, actually just lower-middle class internet arguing man.

    you're the one who wants to start arguing about it, not me. and thanks, but you have no right to say what "class" i belong too. I'm doing pretty well for only being 23.

    Wow. You are a terribly vain individual. I honestly hope you try and can't get one.
