You are not really buying an iPhone, rather you are buying several years of high priced wireless service which just happens to include a heavily subsidized phone.
If customers had to pay the full price upfront few would buy one. The wireless carriers remind me of those low end furniture stores who attempt to sell furniture and a new TV on a payment plan. Thus it should come as little surprise that even the poor buy iPhones.
just bought unlocked 4s. first i anything that is not a pod, do not even attempt to explain to me what i did wrong. anyway the damn thing is pretty fucking capable even without a phone, since there is internet everywhere and everyone will just iMessage me anyway of whatever. I think it's pretty cool actually
i have a crush on siri
