    Pricing "rumors"

    My, this is being taken quite personally…………. Seems like there are some very sensitive people on this forum……. At this point, it’s actually getting comical……….. I must admit that I did not realize that I had the power to upset you three so badly.………sorry boys

    iPhone or iPod and a cell phone?

    You have brought up a very good question. In a way it's like the question many people ask: what's the best cell phone for me? The answer: the one you choose. No one else can choose for you. It's up to you to decide what you want in features, functionality and the price you are willing to pay for...

    Pricing "rumors"

    That does not sound like a vote of confidence for Apple. I'm rather surprised at the comment, as Apple is a company of innovators. In addition, it goes against the very position Apple holds in the market place. One of leadership. After all, just look at the price of MP3 players vs. the iPod...

    POLL:Would you buy an iPod if it had all the features of the iPhone except calls?

    I would prefer the device without the phone. This way it would be much easier to carry. Much like one carries a PSP or other entertainment device. Plus then one could carry a very nice small phone for calls and texting. Therefore if you were on the web or playing a game etc, a phone call would...

    current Cingular/AT&T subscribers?

    Just out of curiosity, I checked the web site and everything there is 2 years. Do you have a link (source) where I could find 1 yr contracts? When you say no commitment, specifically what does that mean? That they will actually sell airtime and data plans on a month to month? Or? Thanks

    Pricing "rumors"

    After reading an increasing number of posts here about the initially published pricing of $499 & $599, I just called three Apple stores in my area. Each time I asked for the manager, each time I got the exact same answer. The iPhone will sell for $499 & $599, no matter what the status of the...

    Cost of iPhone service?

    More "News" I love Roller Coasters! And this entire iPhone project with the resulting rumors and related speculation is quite a roller coaster ride. Check this quote out: "it's not hard to imagine AT&T charging $99 a month for an iPhone voice/data plan." source: Ars Technica

    Pricing "rumors"

    Yes, exactly you are 100% correct. Apple has truly accomplished something quite amazing. Never before has a mobile phone garnered this much attention and desire from the public before the phone has even been available for sale. Not only in the US, but World Wide. There has been a lot of...

    Pricing "rumors"

    Actually the other phones that are listed are not only very popular, but have sold in the thousands in just a few short weeks. Most of these were created as competition to the iPhone and yet history will most likely show that in the end, the Apple phone is the best. If it were not for the...

    iPhone to sport a nearly indestructible screen lens...

    Regardless of material used, I believe that the iPhone will be very durable as it's a high end phone. Which now as we learn more about price, proves that once again, Apple is doing a great job. http://forums.everythingicafe.com/threads/pricing-rumors.749/

    More Rumors-New Features...Too Good to be True?

    I think Steve has a brilliant strategy in place. This will support what we are now learning about pricing.

    Pricing "rumors"

    I do not disagree with you. Your point is well taken. However the more I think about this, and the intent of Apple to rightly take credit for creating the best phone of all. They should charge a fair retail price for a high end luxury phone. I support that completely. If I'm going to pay $749 I...

    Pricing "rumors"

    Yes I believe you are, because as noted earlier, Apple does not gain from the contract. Only AT&T, that's where they make their money. Everyone else that buys a phone from AT&T signs a 2 year contract. So that's nothing special. Even people that get free phones sign 2 year deals. Apple makes...

    Pricing "rumors"

    What Contract? ......:wink: If your referring to the AT&T contract, that is just to operate the phone. AT&T has no authority to price the phone. Thats Apples baby. ......:smile: Plus I just paid $349 for an 80GB iPod, so at $749 the iPhone is quite reasonably priced I would say. Another...
