    Default [iPhone 3G] Price on Pay As You Go ?

    So the 8GB will be ~100 on a 2 year contract (maybe plus 17.5% VAT)

    But O2 states they will have it available for pay as you go customers too, but at what price!?

    Steve Jobs stated the 8Gb iPhone 3G would be available for no more than $199 (100) in every country it is available. Based on that they can not possibly charge you any more.

    You misunderstand.

    In every participating country you will be able to get your hands on a new iPhone for no more than US$199 - on the basic 18/24 month contract.

    If you want it non-contract then of course it will cost more.

    I'm Scottish - I only bet on dead certainties!

    I too think there will be a premium to pay for Pay as you Go iPhones. Althogh with Apple you can never be too sure. SJ did say no more than $199!

    If that is true, then why would anyone sign up for an 18month contract. Some websites are saying that it will cost 269 for the pay as you iphone 3g.

    Cmon lets be realistic - Phone Companies nor Apple cant sell these iphones for 100 on a no contract system - firstly they would make no money on the iphone and no money from calls as its likely you will be on another network, O2 only did this cheap similar thing on V1 iphones to get rid of unwanted stock!!

    Apple have learnt from their mistakes - this is def going to be contract only for cheap iphone and a premium price for Pay As You Go so that they make profit on selling the device on Pay As You Go since it wont be subsidized by contracts.

    If they sold Pay As U Go for 100/$200 then they would be selling them for cheaper then they can make the damn things. With the iphone subsidized by the phone companies at such cheap price with approx 70 countries in the running Apple are cleverly eliminating a high percentage of hacked iphones as there will be little need to hack your iphone in the supported countries if your happy with the "exclusive" providers.

    I suppose the good news is that a Pay As You Go system will prob not change much for us hacked iphone users as we will prob pay the same price as we do now for a pay as you go phone - lets hope its easy to hack huh boys?
