    How has apple come up with this price $199 US which is £124, but no the Uk market is looking at £499 which is about $700 this is crazy. The phone is no different but again the Uk gets the big price tag, and the best thing is it is locked to some network.

    I for one will not be running out to be ripped off it is time that the Uk said wait a minute we also deserve a fair price and stop paying these huge markups.

    Is that UK price with a new two year contract?

    The £499 includes VAT too, don't forget - so it's £424.68 ex VAT.

    For the purposes of USD $ comparison, £499.00 = $660.46.

    Is the iPhone 4S even available as a PAYG/SIM free option in the US?

    I think you've got your figures wrong.

    The iPhone 4S purchased unlocked in the States is $649 plus tax, available in November.

    The iPhone 4S purchased unlocked in the UK is £499, available on Friday.

    Without tax it's £415, which is $645.41. That's a price difference of $3.59 ;)

    The $199 is a subsidised price on a 2 year contract and NOT the price of an unlocked 16GB phone which will be available in the US next month for $649. The £499 price here is for an unlocked 16GB model. You're comparing apples to oranges ( no pun intended ). Please get your facts straight before starting unnecessary new threads ranting about something that makes no sense.

    Still a rip off, then you stuck in a 2 year contract and you out dated again.

    I will just wait for iPhone 5 then upgrade

    In Australia the 4S is $799 unlocked with no carrier. (Including GST)

    You think you got it bad.

    32Gb = $899
    64Gb = $999
