So there’s this thing called the iPhone 3G and people are all excited about it.
I’m 12 months into a 24 month contract with AT&T.
You know what that means? That means the $199 iPhone becomes a $399 iPhone.
What happens if I pay the pro-rated early termination fee? My ETF becomes $115, and my total cost to renew to a two year contract with an iPhone becomes $314. That’s $85 cheaper!
That’s still a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a mobile phone. So it can play Bomberman…big deal!
The ideal solution would just be to buy the phone flat-out and not be chained to a contract. Unfortunately that option costs SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS.
