    None of these new technologies is worth it. Just wait a week and price will drop completely....

    iPhones in general aren't worth the retail price, especially since another one will be out in a few months to a year.

    Nothing is worth the money these days. & to me, a phone is still just that: a phone.

    I'll keep my computer systems, you can keep your impostor toys.

    Apple wants you to buy a new product every time it comes out, that's how they get free beta testers. I refuse. I will stick with my current laptop and ipod until they die.

    I use a dumbphone and an ipod touch for less than half of the yearly cost of an iphone from verizon.

    We had an article in the paper right before the Iphone 3 came out. One quote that I read was the following "Apple users were becoming upset with Apple, as the company had not come out with an upgraded new phone for nearly a year." Really?? Apple users becoming pissed off because they had not had the opportunity to shell out another 400.00 for another phone within a year's time?... What the F.....Me, I'm going to wait for the Iphone 28 to come out, then I might buy one.. By that time, the thing should probably control everything in my house, lights, oven, toilet, alarm, stereo, TV, and be able to tell me what I should eat based on my stool sample that it will request every morning.. Seriously people.. put down the phone, and start to enjoy life.. it's not that great..

    If someone in China is working on an assembly line, and they are turning out rubber dog boo boo, just as fast as they can at $.35 an hour, it would take a long long time to pay $1000 for an iPhone.

    As soon as you buy it the iPhone 6'll probably just come out in a few months anyways.

    I dont think the iPhone is worth what it sells for in the states. Every iPhone we had either broke or froze. And no matter how many times we called ATT and replaced it, and it still didnt work.

    But if your a fool to spend that much for a phone, do it. I can't see myself spending more than $200 on a phone anymore
