    well, the iphone when bought here in the Philippines is very costly(35k+ php). But i saw in the apple store that it only costs 99$ which in philippine peso is only roughly 5k!

    i read how you can buy iphone from us and use it in the philippines by unlocking. about this, how can you know the baseband of the iphone? also, is there an unlock already for the iphone 3gs?


    now, i would like to ask how much the iphone really costs when bought in the canada? i have a few relatives that are going there for vacation so i'm thinking of buying there so that it would be cheaper. also, can you buy just the iphone without any simcard or plan included? i got the idea that when you buy an iphone, you have to buy an att plan too.

    I'm not from the USA or Canada but I'm sure $99 is if bought with a contract.

    If you are going to get an iPhone 3Gs, there will be no unlock for a while, but if you're getting an iPhone 3G, you can either hope that the Dev Team really has an unlock for 3.0 ready, or buy and use a turbosim. If you buy the iPhone now, it will have the latest baseband, so you won't be able to use yellowsn0w right at the moment. Although I've heard that the Dev Team has a 3.0 unlock ready, we'll have to wait and see

    I'm in the US, so I'm not sure about Canada. It's $99 here in the US, and you have to buy it with service and sign a 2 year contract. If you buy the iphone w/o a sim card included or sign a 2 yr contract, you will have to pay around $300-$400 for one. Yes, if you get an iPhone for $99 or $199, you have to buy the AT&T plan and sign a 2 year contract

    Hope I helped

    With no Contract in Canada, the price has not been announced. $99 is WITH a three-year contract, of at least a $30.01 plan. The expected no-contract price is about $500.

    Sorry, you won't get an iPhone for that price. That's around the cost of an iPod touch 2G, 8GB.

    If you go to craigslist, you can find one for $300-$400 unlocked (turbosim unlock, or jailbreak unlock)
