    With a contract or with an upgrade then the 16GB version will sell for $199. Without that then no it will not. However, some people say they want an iPhone and then when they get it, they notice how locked down it is and want to just get rid of it. Be careful about getting an iPhone because you never realty know what you're going into until you actually live with the device.

    Well I have tmobile and they don't sell the iPhone, I was hoping to purchase one unlocked for possibly for $300 or less. Is someone here gonna give one away?

    I understand how the iPhone is locked with limited customization and I'm perfectly fine with that as I wouldn't feel like customizing it and I have an ipod touch 2nd gen that's dying so i want to get an iPhone and get rid of my ipod touch and current phone.

    You won't get one for that price until the iPhone 6 comes out, and even then it will be used and beat up for $300. Unlocked iPhones hold their value very well and there is no reason to discount them because of the great demand. Your best bet would be a used AT&T version in a few months then get it unlocked. It will still be above your budget, but the closest you can get.

    Well, I have seen the price on Apple Store. IPhone 5 cost is $199 as compared to Samsung S3, Its very reasonably price.

    Have a locked one

    Hey cruisetom120
    The one you watched at Apple store is a 16 GB locked iPhone.

    As iPhone5 costs $649 (unlocked one), I don't think that anyone is gonna sell it at less than half of it's price soon if it is in working condition. What you can do is to have a locked one pricing $199 (16 GB brand new).

    Exactly. Plus, T-Mobile is fixing their network to support the iPhone. So eventually you will have 3G and possibly 4GLTE when they launch their network.
