    Default Iphone who has one?

    I bought my DD an Ipod touch for her birthday and I'd like to get myself one..but I thought about Iphones...do they do the same re music and videos etc from Itunes??

    Who has one? Can I buy an Iphone without going on a plan, as my boss pays for my phone bill (my FIL)..

    I'd love some info etc about the best brands etc and how much they cost to buy?

    Thanks

    Hi
    I have a touch n a phone( only because my plan ran outrush I got touch as a gift *spoilt* personally I would get the phone as it does everything the touch does but you can have Internet anywhere. I can only get Internet on my touch when at home ect an I use our wifi.... As for buying them kmart were selling the for under $500 outright but locked to I think optus? a bit before the iPhone 4s came out so they have prob come down a bit in price


    Also the only brand is apple but it's who it's locked to but I'm pretty sure it's only around $30 to ring apple n get it unlocked if it's brought outright

    Yep you can buy them outright (even on eBay!) and put any SIM in. And yes you get 3G Internet when you are away from home so you can use the Internet wherever you are, as long as there is 3G reception. I loooove my iPhone, I couldn't live without it!!! I can't recommend them enough, all the apps are awesome too!

    With an iPhone the only brand is Apple. You are probably talking about "smart phones" in general, which is the type of phone they are and you can buy many brands ie Apple, Samsung, LG etc and all have different models. I have an iPhone 4 & they retail at about $700 now I believe. I chose Apple because their app store is the best IMO!

    You can get an iPhone 3GS for $400 at Kmart outright.

    Mine was 'free' on a 24 month $29 cap.
