Wow that's freaky.

I was coming here specifically to tell you all that "Yes, it blends!" but was just beaten to it!

This one's well worth seeing for the super-slow-mo!

ahmad: [Unfortunately I don't live in Auckland, Wellington, or Christchurch, but this would be a brilliant publicity stunt to protest the iPhone pricing, no?

Organise a GZ meeting of people who happen to be Geekzone members at a Vodafone store, tip a member of the press, and get a front page story about a huge group of people queueing outside Vodafone just to NOT buy an iPhone?


I see you protested well - you even bought an iPhone regardless of price and plans?

That's why Vodafone would never worry about any of the voices. People will buy it anyway.

No sir Smile

I didn't buy from Vodafone, and didn't buy a 3G iPhone. I am currently looking to buy a 2nd hand iPhone 1st gen. And if I get one I will be remaining on Prepay.

Vodafone's prices were always going to be way beyond what I could afford.

The youtube video you embedded would be a picture of me if I had bought it!! Cool

The problem with VF pricing were not with its rates, but with its plans which was not customizable. But still, if you had bought the iPhone separately, people have told that they are given the choice to put their own simcard (dont go to prepay, I am talking about postpaid customers). I had enquired of putting my company simcard in iPhone and using it and I was told I could do it if I had bought just the iPhone. In that case, the rates are same as of now for me, it does not change Smile

Mauricio we do agree on one thing though - the iPhone 3G was going to sell regardless of the cost Wink

Dead right. People probably would remortgage their houses just to buy the bloody thing.
