I bought my iPhone before the $200 drop. I got it for my birthday (but I still payed for 1/2)

I hustled and schemed for mine.

I bought mine during a retail therapy spree.

I’m waiting to buy one until the new one comes out in June. But I’ve already swindled saved enough for the phone AND about six months of service. I’m on AT&T anyway so there is no need to unlock it. Jailbreaking is another matter ;)

At first I didn’t think I wanted one. Long story short, I ended up getting one the first week.

That means I also got the $100 “early adopter” Apple credit : )

I have to say it was one of my better purchases. I honeslty can’t imagine not having real Internet, email, photos, music, etc. at my fingertips 24/7 wherever I am.

I bought mine the first day ( didnt wait in line though), and after a month of two bought my wife one. She is slightly spoiled.

Also spoiled. But I waited with baited breath from November 2006, when I first started looking for a new phone and read early rumors about the iPhone online.

my dad bought mine for my birthday, i’m pretty much spoiled i don’t even pay the bill.

My wife and I paid for our own phones. I think I am the only one that is unhappy with the phone thus far. I will wait till June or till the new Sony comes out this summer. One or the other. They need vast improvements to keep me as a customer.

My wife got me mine for Christmas! She regrets it now, because I’m always messing with it.

stevenb's avatar

bulbatron9's avatar

peedub's avatar

@bulb- your wife is totally sitting right next to you, admit it!

bulbatron9's avatar

Actually, she is upstairs, in bed, but any other time you would’ve Nailed it, PW!

Bought two (his and hers) the day they came out…waited in line, and paid cold hard cash.

ketoneus's avatar

I paid for mine myself at the original price, though my company now reimburses me for service.

my boyfriend bought mine for me for valentines day present.

thecoot's avatar

I waited until January to get mine. Wanted to see how it would develop in it’s first 6 months before laying day that type of scratch.

Mine was a self birthday present. I held on to my Sidekick II past my 1 year contract with T-Mobile until July and then ported over my number. I’m very happy with it, don’t see a need to upgrade in the forseeable future. Think I’ll use the $100 credit towards the extended care plan soon.

mzgator's avatar

We bought his and hers iPhones on the day they came out. We paid for them the old fashioned way….work!

hearkat's avatar

From the day it was announced, I saved up for mine; and I also paid half for my son’s and he paid the other half.

nocountry2's avatar

One day my iBook was grunting, and groaning, and all of a sudden the cd drive shot open and out popped my ‘lil iPhone!! Awwwww

peedub's avatar

Was there any afterbirth?

nocountry2's avatar

Man cables and cords and apple pulp like you wouldn’t believe… I buried under the old sycamore in the back. ;)

peedub's avatar

Wow, at least you didn’t save it and eat it.

nocountry2's avatar

too sacred…all hail apple….

lparlove's avatar

I got mine for my birthday. Split the cost of my daughters’ for her 21st birthday! We are Apple geeks.
