Thread: Ridiculous iPhone Prices for India and Russia

  1. #21
    well, a contract locked iphone 3g 8gb costs u$s 524 in argentina, 40 bucks a month, with little free minutes and sms and 512 mb of "free data".

    with the same plan, the 16 gb one costs 665.

    of course there are higher plans wich lower the cost, but its always at least u$s150 more expensive than in the united states.

    is it Apple setting the price or are the service providers charging a premium?

    COME ON PEOPLE !!! Some people seem they still don't understand how CONTRACT works ... The $199 price tag is based on CONTRACT!!! (2 year). Like some fool said above, in Australia, 8GB is $899 when you are free of contract and it's $0 with 2yr CONTRACT.. is that still fxxking rip off ?*I believe the price in India or Phillippines are pretty much OUTRIGHT price.. probably Apple failed to make contract deal with local carriers. Wake up people and stop whinning at the price... PAY for what you get... GET ON A CONTRACT if you wanna pay less for the iPhone... otherwise pay FULL PRICE !!!!

    AoTW // I'm assuming you bought it from Apple resellers ?? It cannot be that much ... or did you customise yours ?

    $899 aud for the 8gb!!!!!
    These prices are for outright purchases (i.e. no contract). The blackberry and nokia n95 sell for up to $1100AUD outright! Even the "lowly" Motorola V3x is around $600-700. Most countries have this kind of system. In some cases even though the phone is free with a cap plan, over a 2-3 year period you end up paying more than if you bought it outright.

    I was shipping out iphone from SF, CA to Russia and they were selling them there for $1000.

    In Moscow, the 16GB 3G iPhones were selling for around $1700. I know, SHOCKING! Who the hell would want to be this phone for over $500! Definitely not worth it

    It is indeed stupid to be paying 37k for an iphone in india.
    Its a total ripoff and operators need to understand that by lowering prices and having lower margins, they can sell more and in turn make larger profits....

    Guess they need to put some brains in their heads....

    If people weren't so damn greedy and would just help someone else out by buying one for someone to send over to them and taking maybe 10% off the top (rather than 200%) then we wouldn't have this worry.
