Price we pay for getting stuff early, however also i didn't think that it would drop that much in a couple of months, Apple should give at least a $100 rebate or gift card to use at the Apple store for people who got there phones and registered them early, they can track all that...this is crap..but then again I paid 700 to have the first PS3 on the block and Ill prob pay again when iPhone 2 comes out..

Part of me is pissed off.

But the other part is thrilled at how many iPhone sales this will trigger.

More iPhones == more support, more apps, more everything!

it sicks we paid more. Look at it this way you paid more towards Apples R&D for new products. I don't feel screwed now everyone who said they wouldn't buy it because it is too expensive/not worth it will have to eat a lot of crow.

Thats worth 200 to me.

Wow. I can not express how much this angers me! A price drop of 1/3 after just 2 months. This is how I am rewarded for giving a brand new Apple product a try? Do we have any options?

It'd be nice if they gave us a $200 credit to iTunes or the Apple Store or something.

Didn't think of that, but more phones also means more att customers, more service = crappy networks that can't handle all the customers..

Pretty unbelievable stuff. I love how he comments on the 1million iPhone customers and phenomenal customer feedback and love from all the early adopters... RIGHT BEFORE SCREWING US ALL OVER. Lovely.

They definitely needed to do a price drop before Christmas, but couldn't they have waited another month or 2 out of simple respect for the early fans? A $100 price drop in October would have been much more palatable. This is more like a hardcore slap in the face.

yeah we had to pay 200 bucks to beta test the product, and mine even broke I had to send it in for a new screen..wow just wow, I hope we can start a petition..this is real $hit.

Bullsh*t I don't believe it. All it means is they will sell more iPhones without having to upgrade, fix bugs, or add any apps that don't happen to also make them more money (hello, easier access to their store through wifi)

I know I've already posted in this thread but to reiteriate... I AM PISSED. Fence sitters get a rewarded while early adopters get punished. Thanks Apple. I doubt the price of the technology went down by $200 in only 2 months. We're not stupid - you took advantage of the true Apple fans.

I agree also, I am really mad about this. $200 is a lot of money to drop a product after two months. The iPhone just keeps making history.

Is this everyones first new phone? Almost ALL phones go through MAJOR price drops after a month or so of coming out. Remember how much a Razr was when it first came out? Or a MotoQ or a Treo. Come on people. Yeah if you bought the phone in the last week I can see being a little upset, but saying "shady businesss practices" or whatever, get over it. Apple didn't do this to "personally screw you" Yeah I paid full price for mine and I knew if i waited it out there would be a price drop, but I didn't want to wait. I wanted it now so thats just the "price" we pay for being first in line. Its ALWAYS like that with Tech. Xbox, PSP, Phones, DVD players, TVs, etc.
