    i have spoke to a couple of differant people at apple and they told me the only way to change their policy on returns is a public outcry (lots of customer complaints) remember the $100 refund to customers how bought there iphone at launch . I am especially mad that they are going to lower the price of the 16gb to $399 we all paid that but have only half the memory if you want a 16gb iphone tell apple their return policy stinks after all we are the customers and arent we always right call apple or go to their website and let them know

    I don't think there is anything wrong with the price drop

    I think it was semi-expected that the 8 was going to be phased out AND you got a great product that you paid for....you should be happy

    Another 8 gigs is not the end of the world

    I bought a Mac LC in 1990 with 8MB RAM, 16Mhz processor, and 80MB HD for $3000. Now Apple is selling computers that are much better and much cheaper. WTF?!? I think Apple owes me $2500 for the difference between my LC and the latest Mac Mini. Anyone wanna sign my petition?

    I couldn't agree more. Stop your f'in bitching. It's not like you bought it 2 months ago and they dropped it $200! While I think the bitching that went on over that was stupid at least Apple responded. They won't respond to this and if they do then Steve Jobs is a bigger ***** than I gave him credit for!

    I too have the 8gb and really I paid $400 and got what I paid for. I may upgrade but right now I'm quite happy with it. OTB it was running 1.1.1 and I haven't installed any new updates. I hope people do not really think that new tech suddenly means they got a bum deal 8 months ago. I got mine less than 4 months ago myself.

    i have an 8GB that i bought in dec last year (just after they were first available in the UK). as far as i can see that same phone is still available today at the same price. there is a rumour that the 16GB phone will be reduced in price. i'm sure that won't happen for a little while as it wouldn't make any sense to introduce the 16GB and one price point and change it almost immediately.

    sure, i'd quite like a 16GB phone but i was very happy to pay what i did for my 8GB and it's a great phone.

    it seems to me that you, the op, are complaining about something that hasn't happened.

    Heh, what sucks is getting an 8 GB iPhone for Christmas, and then the 16 GB model debuts a month and a half later. Of course, it was a gift, so I can't be too annoyed about it. :p:

    What would be cool is if you could send in your iPhone to Apple and get the capacity upped for $150-$200 or something like that, all without voiding the warranty. I can't imagine that happening, though.

    My original, iDay, iPhone crapped out the Sunday before the 16GB upgrade. Apple swapped it out on the Monday before the upgrade. I was irritated after the upgrade, because I thought that I had missed out on buying an upgrade for a hundred bucks. As it turned out, the replacement went loopy a few days later and it was replaced; an upgrade wasn't an option.

    I didn't lose a thing, so I'm happy.

    Consider yourselves lucky! I am one of the many people still stuck with a 4GB iPhone.

    That's for sure, but I feel left out knowing I could've gotten a 16GB for the same price that I paid for this 4GB in August '07 ($500) if I had just waited. That's life I guess.

    EDIT: I think the fact that I have a 30GB iPod for my music makes the 4GB bearable.

    Heh, me too! My 4GB iPhone works perfectly and the screen is great (5 series). Do I wish I had more storage? Of course! But I think I will wait for the next gen iPhone (maybe 3G) before I upgrade. Face it folks...before long there will be a 32GB phone!

    Technology marches on...
