    Best buy is a freakin cult. I still work there after almost 2 years and all they do is brainwash you.

    this is dumb. i can already go to the AT&T website and buy a refurb for the same prices with the same contract requirements. I just did it a few days ago and the refurb unit was perfect. best buy is sooo ghey.

    Don't you guys get it cheaper depending on your price plan? Here in the UK the more you pay per month the less you pay for the phone.
    35/month 8Gb 100 16Gb 156
    45/month 8Gb Free 16Gb 56
    75/month Both Free (not sure why anyone would want an 8Gb at this price!)
    All on an 18 month contract including unlimited web and Wifi.

    I guess its a little too late to get in on this deal, but it does provoke me to go ahead and sign up.lol I'm even online looking for every other reward and discount program.

    I'm saying this not as a moderator but as just another poster: Crimson_Fried is a huge ignorant idiot. If you have to base yourself on what you have vs what everyone else has well my friend there's a name for that. It's called being a tool. But I guess I have to commend your honesty, at least it lets me know right off the bat what type of individual you are so I can just go ahead and add you to my ignore list.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Too bad you need to have already spent at least $2500 in the store that year to become a silver member...

    I happen to be a member this year only because my girlfriend and I both bought our laptops for school on her card. Too bad I already have the phone :P

    Usually I find many of your comments abrasive but this one is spot on. I think I like you again.

    Does the normal average person spend $2500 a year at best Buy to be able to get this deal? No... this deal is already for the people dropping a couple grand at the store. They do deals like this often for silver and gold members. Most likely people who are a part of this group already have the iPhone if they ever wanted one. Oh, and thinking you are better than someone else for having the ihone makes you an idiot. Aren;t there over 14 million running around the globe? All of those people are something other than average then?

    I think it is funny how some one who makes more money than someone else thinks because they make more that they other person should not be able to have the things he/ she has. There are people that work really hard and do not make a ton of money but you know maybe they are happy. They save up money and EARN what they have. I for one would never go to rent a center or any place like that because you PAY 3x more than what is worth. But at least Crimson Fried put a smile on my face today because it lets me know how miserable some people are when everything is based on what they can "afford". Not to mention how great it feels to not have thoughts like that in my head making me a nut case. Thanks Crimson. You made my day I am even going to give you a thanks just for being a miserable person showing everyone that Money is not everything. Oh and by the way I got my iPhone when it first came out BUT I did not pay a penny

Sooooo if my 1st gen iphone was the first phone I had for atat does that mean I can get the 3g with the discount price?
    The quick answer to your question is, yes. The 1st generation iPhone did not have any sort of subsidation with the price. You essentially bought the handset and signed a 2 year contract without any sort of discount. If you wanted to get another phone that same day you could have gotten it at the discount price as well. BUT, Once you buy the 3G though you will have to wait 12 months to get another phone at "upgrade" price.

Our phones are something that sits us apart from the "normal", "average" people out there. Just as the laptop PC once did years ago. Of course these days, everyone can afford a laptop and MOST have them just to say "I have a laptop", as if they are James Bond or something. Let them continue to drop the prices and give "discounts" to "club members" at these stores. Best Buy should have NEVER had the chance to sell these phones at ALL. You should NOT have the option of ordering one online now with AT&T either. If people want an IPhone, they should have to do like most of us did to start with: Get in your car, drive to the Apple Store (a REAL one) and pay out the *** for the phone! But like I said before, they can continue to drop the price and give discounts all they want. Because when every other person on the street starts to pop up with one (much like people that own a Mustang), I'll sell mine off at a loss and move on to the next "big thing".

    Don't get me wrong, there are SOME people out there with the knowledge and respect for APPLE who deserve to have an IPhone from day one but could not afford one. HOWEVER, that does not mean that EVERYONE deserves to have one, now does it? By dropping prices, giving discounts or whatever, they are making the IPhone no better than a damn Razor in the end.

    Of course, this is just my opinion and I AM the one that hates to see a computer in every house in this country. Let's face it people, 80% of the population are not even smart enough to send an email without getting excited about it. What ever happened to "Geeks vs all"?

    On second thought, screw it. I'm going out right now and buying myself a new Mustang, a Xbox (oh and dont forget LIVE! to go with that now), an American Idol t-shirt and most of all, the biggest blue tooth headset I can find (it MUST have at LEAST 4 blinking high output LEDs though). Yeah, that's the ticket...........let's all be just alike........



    -----------------------


    Are you seriously not sure what the answer is here? I mean, yeah you are not going to like me much at all but let's be honest here. If you can't even figure out what an "upgrade" is on a cell contract, why do you even own an IPhone to start with? Now please, do flame away and make sure to tell me how "great" and "l337" you are. And to think, I grew up in St.Augustine and tell these idiots in Alabama that people back home are as stupid as they are...........guess I need to think that over a little more. Thanks for posting the inane question though



    Dude, Ease up, the iPhone is a great thing and I think everyone should be in on it.
    You are greedy as hell.

    I hope you drop your phone and it shatters.


    You deserve it.


















    I VOTE This crimson fried dude should go kcuf himself.
    ALL IN FAVOR?

    Typing in capitals is considered SHOUTING and very rude.
    Typing without any punctuation makes it damn near impossible to read and double posting makes it doubly so.

    Wow, just wow. I think most people that have laptops nowadays have them because they're more convenient than sitting in a back room of your house hunched over a computer, not because they want to look like James Bond. Having a massive desktop is a pain if all you're gonna do is check your emails and trawl around on the internet.

    Not sure if you'd realised but this is Apples marketing strategy, they cater initially to those who crave technology and those who are vain because these are the groups that are willing to pay a lot of money to be the first out there with it. When the wave dies down they'll drop prices and make deals to make sure that everyone else can get a piece of the action, these people will also become fans.. The people who were first (depending on how vain/geeky they are) will now want something better, and Apple will deliver.

    You'll go out and buy the new iPhone the days it comes out, someone else will be just as happy getting a 3G for $50 from at&t. I'll wait for my upgrade and take one for free but of course it would be nice to have it from day 1.


    ..and if Mustangs and 360's were half price today, I'd definitely check to see if i could afford one

    My wife isn't eligible for upgrade until July 2010. Think I can still get one from Best Buy? I wonder if they'll take the time to care...

    This raises a question, why does the cell phone company get to ditict when I upgrade my cell phone?! Damn contract.
