    @lambing

    imposible na bumagsak presyo ng iPhone to 5K. hanggang pangarap na lang tayo. hahaha

  14. JM@CC says:

    ang ganda talaga nun iPhone. mahal nga lang. wala pa ako nakikita masyado na gumagamit nun. siguro 2x pa lang ako nakakita na ang gamit ay iPhone and i’m not sure also kung cloned lang yun gamit nila dahil nga mahal ang orig. tsaka di naman mukhang can afford yun guy na nakita ko na gumagamit nun iPhone. hahaha ang bad ko talaga! :-)

    yun nga pala iPhone 3GS na 16GB, nasa 41K din ang SRP. nakita ko yun isang store sa SM North EDSA Annex na nagbebenta nun gadget na yun. if you pay in cash, 41K sya, if you pay sa credit card, pwede sya 12months 0% pero ang presyo would be 48K. well, sa mga can afford bumili, buy na kayo kasi maganda talaga sya at marami sya features not only cellphone pero you can use it as iPod, or pang browse sa internet or panglaro ng games, etc.

    i hope yun 4G ng iPhone would be much cheaper para makabili yun mga ibang pinoys na mahilig gumamit ng cool gadgets.

  16. dax says:

    I Think, Blackberry Storm Is Better Than iPhone 3g.
    AGREE?
    Blackberry Has The Best Features.
    And Only Around On The Price Of 25,000
    41,899 Is Expensive.
    Ill Stick To Blackberry Strom Or Bold.

  17. lambing says:

    Sana bumaba yan ng P5000 up to next year. I really like it.

    Eto pa example, kabibili ko lang ng levi’s 501 bale 40 USD including tax, isang oras lang na trabaho dito yan, sa atin sa pinas how much ang levis, siguro 2,000, kung bibilhin mo isang araw mo ng sweldo yun noh…kain ka dito ng eat-all-u-can, 12 usd, 15 minutes mo lang tratrabahuin yun, sa atin sa pinas kain ka sa kamayan siguro 450 pesos, aba isang araw mong kakayurin sa trabaho. ni hindi ka nga makakabili ng car dahil sa laki ng babayaran mo monthly, dito madali lang, yun akin 350/month lang, wala pang kalahating linggo kitain, djan naku poh, baka isang buwan na sweldo ang budget mo dun, tapos puro gasgas pa mangyayari sa car mo djan dahil sa sikip ng daan. kaya nga sa labis na kahirapan dami ng umaalis sa pinas….

  19. emmanuel janda says:

    Talagang mahal sa pilipinas compared dito sa US. pareho naman gawan china…kahit anong bagay mapa levi’s, phone, itouch, lalo na pagkain, like pizza, dito super laki na 10 usd lang, bale 15 minutes mo lang tratrabahuin yun makakabili ka na, sa pinas yun ganun kalaki siguro 850 pesos na pero ilang araw mo naman tratrabahuin yun 850 pesos. hay, talaga rin naman, buhay talaga….

  20. jay says:

    garsh. that’s too much. it’s obviously overpricing. The iPhone 3G is supposed to be sold for about like 20 thousand in terms of Philippine money. iPhone 3G is much cheaper in other countries.

  24. lol says:

    ang mahal naman, napanood ko nung i-lalaunch yan 199 USD lang.

  25. Taong Grasa says:

    grabe sobrang mahal… ilang taon n namin pagkain yan. 40k? super mega major ripoff… a lower class like me cant buy that thing… ill wait na lang sa kalsada ng recto… hoholdapin ko n lang cla… ahahah

  26. Eddy says:

    grbe ang mahal .. di2 nga sa australia , umabot ng $400AUD

  27. the bus driver says:

    The $199 and $299 offer is not a handset only offer price. It actually requires you to subscribe to a plan for two years. And the lowest available plan of AT&T comes with an MSF of $69.99 which translates to P3,148 per month (using the exchange rate of US$1=P44.975). Globe’s lowest plan is Plan 1599, resulting to savings of at least P31,000 over the 24-month lock-in period. It should be noted that AT&T requires an activation fee of $36 for every new activation and an upgrade fee of $18 for existing iPhone subs (activation fee was used in the calculation since we don’t have existing iPhone subs in the Philippines).

    40k? a really major ripoff.. im planning to wait til 2010.. 10k na lng yan! heheh..

  29. the bus driver says:

    there’s a P16,800 with P 1599 plan. if you are not into calls or 3G and you are just a plain texter this phone is not for you. I heard lots of reservations are coming in and mostly the elite group, executives and managers. This phone will really give them a distinction, a class. :D

  30. Toot! says:

    Too expensive. They must lower the price if they want to sell a lot, right? Tsktsk. ;D

  31. dewdew says:

    sobrang mahal. may bago ang lg na maganda.

  32. g3rard says:

    It’s a RIPOFF. Sugapa ang Globe.

  33. Zweihander says:

    Sa AT&T, if you terminate your contract after 31 days, magbabayad ka lang ng $175 na penalty fee. You get to keep the phone tapos ang total na babayaran mo lang ay around $570. That’s around 25k lang. Ang layo sa 41k at 48k. Unlocking is not a problem. Eto plan kong gawin to get one.

    Pero 14k lang talaga pag bumili ka underground kaso bad kasi illegal.

  34. GMA Sikat says:

    kaya ko bumili nyan. ilang taong sweldo ko lng yan sa GMA yan. iipunin ko ung 500 na binibigay binabayad nila sakin sa pagcocoment. bebenta ko din mga groceries na bigay nila para makabili ako nito. hmm mga 3yrs from now kaya ko na bumili nyan

  35. the bus driver says:

    Please be informed that the US199 phone offered in US comes with a US199 plan. So the 40k is not a ripoff…..

  36. Zweihander says:

    Uh, you don’t need to actually go to the US to buy one from US. -_-

    Hindi mo rin kelangang lumipad sa US just to have it repaired. I actually know somebody who owns one already, kaya din niyang magrepair.

    40k is a major ripoff!!!

  37. the bus driver says:

    I think this is cheaper than going to US then buy at 14k. You still need a VISA. :)

    And if you buy it outside, once repair is needed, you will fly back to US? :)

    The gadget is too techie and for those who has the money to spent. And 3G is so great to be experienced…. Go Globe!
