    Is the iPhone 3G S Expensive for what you are getting i saw they want £538.30 on pay as you go from o2 within the uk for the 32GB model, is this corrrect because in america they are selling the 32GB model for $300. How is that possible its like £250/£300 cheaper in the USA. How is this??? and what is the difference. I would really like to know because i am considering buying one on friday and dont know if im losing losing over £250.

    and is it worth buying the 32gb for the price of over £500. and also Compared to the rest basically its only £100 more 16gb more than for the 16GB model.

    Thank you.

    Yeah i have never had a iphone before or touch :thumbsdow.
    And also not just is it expensive is it worth it.
    Its not just a phone it is a phone, music player, video player, internet device, and camera all in one.

    expensive depends on the person buying it!

    The iPhone really is a great device, but it's worth mentioning there are phones out there that do the same thing it does, some better. Personally I've had an iPhone since release and really like the way it works and the integration with iTunes.

    Is it worth £550? Not for me, no. The 16gb is almost worth £440 but I just can't bring myself to spend that on a phone in one go if I'm honest, especially seeing as I would only get it for an extra 8gb storage, but that's just me.
