  11. crissy says:

    wag na magcompare ng US price kasi wala naman tau sa US! LOL.

    got my first G iPhone from US, nakalusot lang kasi naka Cingular (now AT&T) din ako tas pumapayag pa sila noon na lumabas ng apple store na hindi nagactivate. ngaun inde ka na makakalabas ng store without activating the phone so ung $199 mo madadagdagan pa ng para sa iphone plan.

    kung hindi ka matyaga mag mod ng gadgets sinasabi ko nang inde ka mageenjoy sa iphone – walang pang forward ng sms, mms, etc (inde ko lang alam kung kaya na ng firmware 2.0).

    bilin nyo nalang ung akin, fully customized at unlocked 8GB first G iphone. LOL!

  12. v says:

    Iyong sa istets, hindi din totoo iyong 199 thing. Me lock-up din sila duon sa AT&T at monthly fee; same thing na meron ang globe. Kung bibilhin mo ng unit lang iyong iphone, more or less, ka-presyo din natin dito.

    Kaya iyong inaasahan kong 2 unit SANA! na maipabibili, turns out kulang pang pambili ng isa. GRRRRRRRRR!!!!

    Nauna lang siguro akong ma-bad trip ke pareng Istib Jobs

    When I saw it just now, I was like “WTH? I thought it’s just 199 USD?”. I guess I’ll just stick with my good old 838pro

  14. Melai says:

    Ha ! What kind of pricing is that ? :T
    US sells it for only $199 [8GB] and $299 [16GB]
    which costs like 14K-15K+ when we convert in
    in pesos. Sheesh! I’d rather buy it here in
    England for just £159 [14K+ pesos] Hmmp!

  15. athame says:

    if you’re going to think of it… It is affordable… There is a 12 months 0 percent interest offer you know…

    And in regards to the one who posted that Globe did not allow him to avail of the Iphone because he still has pending 2-year lock, it’s actually true for new subscribers… But if you have been subscribed for a couple of years already, they will allow you to cancel whatever promos you applied that caused the 2-year lock, to give way to IPhone promo.

  16. edi filth says:

    globe is being quite an opportunist in regards to their pricing of the iphone 3g, coz in the states they just sell the 8gb model for $199 = 9k here and yet they will sell it for 37k!!! damn!!! screw the free load and just stick to the original price that steve made… i think globe is being so freakin’ unreasonable!!!! why would they do that?!!! i think globe just burn their asses in hell for their greed. but the sad part is, i think i would still gragb myself 1, i just dunno if i’ll ask my friends to buy me 1 in the u.s. which is way more cheaper rather than gettin’ my ass broke!!!
