    I mean, when iPod Touch users have to pay, why should iPhone users be able to get it for free? Sure, they pay in monthly fees, but they are paying for the extra features, such as SMS, Camera, Phone, Internet where ever they want... they also dont need a phone contract. And, its an ipod as well. So, for people that carry a phone and ipod, they just need an iphone and its automatically much easier to handle. So, why do iPod users have to pay?

    Because Apple need to keep a good cashflow of money. They achieve this with iPhone users via their contract and or PAYG top ups. AS for iPod Touch they get nothing. They're a company they are out to make money.

    We got tons of these threads when 2.0 was released I was expecting it for 3.0 aswell. :/

    **EDIT**

    We have to pay 5x the amount of the upgrade every month!

    Yes, we do deserve it.

    jesus h not anther one, because once you add up all the fees and monthly charges i think in fact its 30 bucks just for unlimited data so you cant really complain plus whats the point its not like there gonna change the price cause you cant afford to spend 10 bucks for a upgrade

    I can see why they do it. But they don't need to, and the fact that iPhone users get it for free annoys me.

    Yes, they're still paying for the device as they're paying into their contract. And with that, they pay for the iPhone OS.
