    $97?!?! What the hell?!?! Presumably that's with a minimum contract on a rather large monthly plan? That's £67 for an iPhone!! I'm going to buy an iPod Touch 8gb and that's £140!!

    97 dollars instead of 200 dollars... So it's probably with the expensive monthly plan.

    I thought you could get pretty much any phone for 'free' if you were willing to be tied to a big enough contract?

    @Bluestar - works differently in different markets. Here in the UK handsets have been historically subsidised by higher contract prices - in Belgium (for example) you paid top dollar for the phone but less for the calls.

    The difference was so much so that back in the dim and distant past my work provided me with a Belgian phone on Mobistar because the roamed calling charges were cheaper than the native ones on local network (plus I got to roam onto three networks - as it was then because none2none coverage was 150 miles away at least)...

    Why is this such a big deal? You can get an iPhone free in the UK with a contract... [​IMG]

    I want it as I'm in Canada. I have a passport. I'm too lazy to leave my house.
