I want to get my girlfriend a 3G iPhone, but I'm going to be out of town, so I was going to get her a giftcard, but I'm not sure how much to get it for. does anyone know the price yet?

Not to be coy, but plan on a range between $400 and $700. Might be cheaper than $400, for an AT&T subsidized model. The higher price point may reflect the cost of a 32 Gb memory module (assuming that memory capacity is offered).

Another option is to run a Monte Carlo simulation; pick the outputted random price point as the value for your girl friend's gift card. ;)

yes the price point isn't known yet. you could give her a black check to Apple for the iPhone and she can use it when it comes out and you don't have to worry about it.

A blank check to a woman? Are you insane? :)

My personal feeling is the pricing will remain the same as the current models.

Have you considered the possibility of getting her an engagement ring, instead? :cool:

How do you know you will be out of town since we are not entirely sure of the release date. Do you have a really long trip planned? You could always get it for you when you get back.

Better yet-you could buy it online and have it shipped to her. :laugh2:

As long as it has all the futures that we all hope it will, and not just 3g and GPS, I'll buy it regardless of price.

lol, yes. i have 2 years to go, so i have a little time to save up. ;)

yeah, i have a 24-day trip. i'll be gone pretty much for the month of june, and im pretty certain that the release will fall dead in the middle of that month.


it's kind of complicated. i have to get her a gift for tomorrow, so i want to give her something then, even if it's a giftcard. the problem waiting to get it for her, is that she insists she doesn't need an iPhone, and i know that she'll tell me no, and not let me get it for her unless i just force it on her lol. she has admitted it would be cool if we both had iPhones, but she doesn't want me to spend the money.

i think i'm gonna roll the dice, and get a card for $435, and that'll cover tax. i really think that the lower capacity 3G will come in at $399.
