Great input Mike. A lot there to consider.
Thanks for taking time to articulate.

FreeRange

Ray, who's the knucklehead? First, your "note" indicates a hardware cost only. Apple also invests heavily in R&D and in their own OS and application development vs the smartphone whores using a free OS and free apps. Next, the iPhone is the most advanced hand held computer in the world, the best built, easiest to use, and has the highest customer satisfaction levels, as well as the highest resale value, exponentially so! Which all adds to its value - it is all very WalMart of you to imply otherwise.

What's more, with an unlocked phone you can actually shop for a lower cost plan that will save you significant amounts of money making this option actually more affordable. Then there are people like me, an expat living China, where there is a 17% tax on all Apple products, yet plans are very inexpensive - I buy my phones in the US, or tax free Hong Kong, and I only pay about $25 USD a month for my plan. Lastly I don't want an iPhone purchased in China as it is required to have the BS Chinese homegrown version of wifi - although it is compatible with the global standard, it has not been certified, as China won't release all the code for certification.

Hey smart man please tell me how much you will pay for your iPhone 5 with your contract in next year?!
