    In Australia the outright price for the iPhone 3G for the 16GB is $929 AUD which is about $750 USD.

    The iPhone 3G 32GB is $1,129 AUD which is about $912 USD

    Is the 3G selling for this much in your country?

    , i just got my iPhone 3GS from Vodafone. I got mine on the 69AUD plan, so 1656 over the 12 months. But you get the 16gb one for free with it, as well as 1gb downloads and 400 to spend a month. Who not get it on a plan like that? Or do you want to use it with a different provider?

    I want to use it with Telstra haha.
    Like, I would get it with vodafone but the pre-paid I'm on is really good for me, because if you recharge $30 you get 200 free sms and free calls to any 5 people on telstra for a month, and it fits in well because my parents are both with telstra and so is my best mate and my girlfriend, so I usually end up managing to keep my credit for 2 months which is really good.

    Those are actually the prepaid prices - if you buy it outright from Apple the 16gb is $879, and the 32gb is $1040.

    The 3GS is not available outright in the USA, you can only buy it through AT&T by signing up for 24 months.
    I think people have imported them from Australia (or any other countries that sell the iPhone outright) and sold them for around $1400 (AUD) in the USA..

    I'm on a contract with 3, so I'm going to buy the phone outright and add a data pack to my current contract.

    Here in Canada, Rogers is charging :

    iPhone 3GS Unsubed 16GB 680$
    iPhone 3GS Unsubed 32GB 780$

    You can get a 200$ discount off the unsubbed price if you had an iPhone 3G for over a year, and you agree to add ANOTHER YEAR to your commitment

    Or you get a 500$ discount off the unsubbed price if you paid 100$/month or more for your plan. Same applies to family plans, but only one line can be upgraded for 500$ off the unsub price

    So if I were to call up the Apple store in Sydney/Chatswood, they would be able to sell me the 16GB for $879?
    Because I can get it unlocked for free by Telstra.

    Thanks to everyone for their help
