    Default [iPhone 3G] Will 3G iPhone Sell more or Less?

    After all the drama Apple and ATT are going about 3G iPhone, the question is will 3G iPhone sell more or less?

    The point to sell at less price $199 doesn't make more people to sign the 2year high priced contract.


    My view is that it will sell less and other manufacturers (Nokia, Blackberry) will have enough time to join the race. It going to a clear disadvantage to Apple.

    Your opinions please...
    iPhone 8GB - $249 Refurbished

    well noone will know the outcome of this , if there is a bypass for the contract stage in iphone3g purchase it will be a major hit like 1st gen , if its a noway getting the thing out of here without a contract, then it will fail in relation to 1st gen.

    or.... people will go into the "matter over mind" frenzy purchasing it with the contract just because they are hardcore fans of the iphone !

    i think they will sell a ot more than the first gen.
    The iphone is for for the "manager"-types of us, not for the prepaid 02 user. and the new prices are too hot. i used a first gen on 02 in germany. i sold it and i will change to t-bomile germany (exclusive carrier here). i want the full support und not again that hack shit... i think im iphone addicted...

    some countries have cleverer solutions... and not so strict price policy...

    and you can even get it free for example in UK if you choose good plan... and plans are not so bad compared to US... (in us mins in your plan includes also incalls as well which makes it ridiculous) so plans like UK O2 will work, and O2 is usually more friendlier than other carriers... and I m sure they will bring an unlock solution as well for a fee... which they do after a year... and contract term is for 18 months opposed to usa 24 months... price for iphone in basic tarriffs is also not bad either almost exact conversion opposed to initial launch's ridiculous prices... so it will definetely be a selling point for O2... the only obstacle will be is for people who are already on a contract... which will delay the buying dates... bcoz iphone requires new contract... thats teh only down side right now...

    on the other hand... from experience I can tell apple is gonna bring another iphone model b4 the year end... Apple has right now two launch occasions for iphone... one for initial 20 countries? and one for 70 countries? so indicating that there are gonna be some changes both in software and product... as you all know right now, (if not changed b4 the release date) iphone doesnt have front camera nor any info said it will yet... also some other features for media/ and tech related advancements are not said to be coming either? which indicates very parallel to apple's normal strategy... put it out to market with some features missing, milk the early adapters and that put another product with the added features and milk more...

    One thing I know that will work is if apple decides to release a fee based unlock solution and/or carrier independent iphones... otherwise, apple still wont meet its target and its strategy will suck big time... they have much bigger potentials, but steve-0 has old school strategies... people love to change their phones every year or so... in general, but not same with the networks... if you force them to do so, you have have unique offers... otherwise it is backfiring everywhere... so why try to reinvent the wheel?

    cheers...
