iPhone

Unfortunately… there’s no way I’m getting one.

It’s an awesome device with some amazing features and some really really nice applications, but I’m not going to get one. Primarily my reason is I don’t spend anywhere near £35 a month on my phone (and I couldn’t afford to right now anyway). The minimum O2 contract length is 18 months at a minimum of £35 a month.

Let’s do a little maths – £35 * 18 is £630. Plus £269 for the device itself. That’s a grand total of £899. Minimum spend.

Sorry, no iPhone unboxing photos from me, I’m afraid.

    Unfortunately, same here.
    £269 for the iPhone is fine, after all I’m paying that for an iPod. But it is the choice of network & price that is annoying.

    The only time I have ever come close to using £35 a month was when I was on holiday, and the fact that it is on O2 is just annoying, barely anywhere near me get’s decent signal on O2, and I like orange. Orange is good, orange is more convenient (for me anyway).

    Maybe I can hope for 2nd/3rd gen when they will hopefully have removed the network restrictions, got 3G, MMS & BT file transfer. One more Apple product so save up for I suppose.

    The iPhone is like a high class whore. You wanna touch it and do many different things at the same time. But, to do so, you have to pay a HIGH price.

    Oh, and the iPhone comes Gonorrhea free. 🙂
