While the release of the iPhone 3G is fast approaching, I’m closely coordinating with a friend who’s on vacation in the US to grab me one of the $599 contract-free unit from AT&T.
If he succeeds, I may get it by the 15th. If not, we can only see how much the monthly service plans look like in other countries and hope it’s not going to be that expensive.
I surveyed 12 countries where pricing for the 8GB iPhone 3G has been announced for the July 11 release.
Of the 12 countries, the cheapest plan costs Php2,115 per month and the most expensive is Php5,760/month.
The average of all of them hovers around Php3,116/month. This should give us a good idea for the ballpark pricing plan when the iPhone 3G hits the Philippines.
