  • 8 Gig 3G: USD$99
  • 16 Gig 3GS: USD $199
  • 32 Gig 3GS: USD $299
  • Mandatory AT&T contract is something like USD$69/month

Add $300 to those prices if you're not getting a new contract, as I found out when my phone was stolen last month.  D'oh!

Bummer. Did you know that the "out early" clause from the AT&T contract is about $5/month? That means of you only have a year left, you pay $60 to get out of your contract. And if you're out of your contract, then you're a "new contract." Wink

Last time I trust an AT&T rep, I guess. I was told canceling my account would cost $300.00 (roughly the additional cost of the new phone.)  :doh:x2

i "think" it does if you are over a certain number of months left. like under 18 months or something. Then the Buyout Option becomes available.

@nubie
u have the same problem as i have.
smart phones in USA are heavily subsidized by the phone company.
basically it is a way to lock u into a plan.

the "real" price of an iphone is closer to this. This is cashout price as in no plan
3G 8 GB   PHP 32,350
3G 16 GB   PHP 34,000
3GS 16 GB   PHP 38,850
3GS 32 GB   PHP 45,250
48 PHP per $1 US

If i sign up for a 2199PHP plan ~$60 a month cost is P13,150 or ~$300

I am not sure where u are.
But in PH everyone uses prepaid phones because it cheaper.
Also less hassle, no wasted time etc.

In USA/Canada they try and lock people into "plans".
So that way they can rip them off for years to come Smiley
So AT&T probably paid like $500 per phone, but they sell it for only $300.
Or maybe because they buy in such large volume, they can get it so cheap, and are selling it at cost.
