Are you willing to cancel everything due to price drop?

Since the price drop of the iPhone, are you going to cancel your AT&T contract pay the ETF and return the iPhone and pay restocking fee? Is anyone willing to do that?

AT&T did not do anything so I don't hold this against them. Heck, they got notice of this waaaaay later than they would have preferred from what I have read.

I am seriously considering getting the new Curve or the current Blackberry 8800 right now as they will/do have REAL GPS and can do everything an iPhone can do and more. It won't be as pretty and sexy but I have used BBs for a LONG time and my gf still uses a BB and she has often made fun of the iPhone for getting beat by a BB in most of its functionality.

If you are a hardcore user and looking at the BB, check out Jive Talk as it is the best IM client I have EVER seen. They have it in alpha for the iPhone but Apple limiting the apps to Safari ruins it.

No, I guess I am stuck with my two iPhone's (my wife's and mine) and the AT&T contracts. :(

But to get even of my money lost, I am not going to replace my two PCs at home with the two iMac that I was planning to purchase in the coming holiday season.

Yeah the new Blackberry 8820 (soon to come out on AT&T, was suppose to be out 2 days ago, but looks like sometime in the next week or so) is kind of sweet. Your right, not as pretty as an iPhone but has wifi, GPS and is able to use a 32GB storage card (though these cards are not out yet), bluetooth with voice dialing, push email, etc etc etc. Overall its a sick little device. I myself am thinking of giving my little brother my iPhone, get the 8820 and a 16GB iPod Touch for my media stuff. I never really minded having 2 devices. One as a PDA/Phone and one for media. Still waiting out for an update or two and want to see some real world reviews of the 8820 once it comes out.

Seriously - get over it.

Price drops are businesss as usual in the cellphone businesss.

I am amazed at the number of people here, and else where online, who seem to think that Apple (or AT&T) owe them something.

Yesterday when I got my 200.00 refund I asked the manager when she found out about the price drop etc.

It seems steve forgot to tell Apple and att.

What she explained to me is, time based on eastern timezone, around 3:00 there was an emergency managers conference call meeting on how to deal with this. At 4:00 eastern time ATT system was setup for the price change.

So all in all I believe it was not decided to drop the price until the keynote.

The reason why I thought I deserved a refund is because I was in my 14 day purchase limit. Working in the tech field I understand how technology prices go down over time.

if you're within the 14 days, obviously you're due a refund or something. that's Apple policy. its all the other people that i think are out of hand and stirring up stuff unnecessarily

Nope. In fact, I can't wait to go to my local Apple store this weekend and buy a new Macbook and a new Nano.

I can't be mad at a large corporate entity simply because they discount a product I paid top dollar for. If that were the case, I'd never buy anything. If this is your first experience being an EA, then welcome to the heartache. You bought into the hype like the rest of us. Now nurse your bruised feelings and move on, or feel free make a scene at the store you bought your iPhone from in a futile attempt to get your money back.
