AT&T is preparing to subsidize $200 of the cost of a new iPhone, bringing the price down to $199...

Ref: CNN - AT&T to cut the price of Apple's new iPhone


Edit: Changed subject line. Was "New 3G iPhones at $199 (?)."

I came in here to delete this thread -- subject sure looked like spam!

Now that you mention it...



I had to change it. My original "New 3G iPhones at $199 (?)" was just too trashy.

Here in Germany, T-Mobile slashed prices somewhat dramatically in an April-to-June promotion. Maybe they've got too much inventory ahead of the introduction of the new iPhone. Interestingly, there's now a new low-cost plan that does not offer unlimited online access.

An AT&T memo is asking sales employees to schedule any vacations "before June 15 or after July 12" because of "an exciting Summer Promotional Launch" with "heavier than normal customer traffic in our stores..."
