Are you ready for a $199 iPhone? And not the old version, but the new (faster) model set for release this summer? Yep, just $199. Fortune reports that AT&T is preparing to offer a $200 â€œsubsidyâ€ for buyers of the next-generation iPhone, which is expected to start a base price of $399. So, after the AT&T subsidy, your price is just $199.
AT&T was announced as a big winner in the FCC Auction of frequency for next generation wireless services, and with AT&T expecting to deliver AT&T 3G services to nearly 350 major U.S. markets by the end of the year, they are already planning for the years ahead when our bandwidth needs are greater and more digital mobile services are in use.
With broadband speeds in the hundreds of Megabits – this is no slow connection and promises much for the future of wireless.
When you say an “unlocked GSM Phone” does that mean i can use it with any company? I have Cingular so i can just remove the SIM card and an unlocked GSM Phone would work, even if the phone is motorola? (from Whitepimp via YouTube)….
Apple has also limited the number of iPhones any single customer can purchase, down to two from the original 5. It is widely believed that Apple wants to limit the number of people who are buying the phone in order to unlock it (in other words, use on any carrier but that of AT&T) and to prevent resellers.
