    How long do you guys think it will be until the rest of the market (Apple, ATT, Best Buy, etc) catch up to Walmart and meet their price of a $99 3GS?

    I was going to sign a contract with ATT this week for 15 Iphones until I saw this. That's almost a $1000 swing.


    Thanks!

    I believe Apple already has matched in stores, but i'm not sure about AT&T.....

    Where did you hear this?? I know at AT&T the prices have not been lowered, I expect maybe June 7th that Steve J will announce the new price points and they will be lowered that day.

    Apple.com hasn't, I seriously doubt the stores have.

    I'd expect it to happen the day of or day after the keynote.

    On the apple store's website, they're still showing the 16GB 3GS @$199. Interestingly you cant select the 3G.

    Im surprised no one has countered this yet.

    Me too to be honest...This was a huge deal at work the other day and the bosses were very tight lipped and made it a point to tell us that we are NOT lowering the price...However we were told that we were not getting anymore 3G phones, and we had 4 left in stock.

    I think you misunderstood my post. Your comment was that you can't believe nobody has "countered" (I assume you mean "encountered") that the 3G is out of stock on Apple's website.

    I said that yes, it was noticed. It was in fact a front page story on MacRumors.com
