    In the spirit of full disclosure, check out a comment that suggests the $24 is misleading.

    RadioShack is offering a range of deals on Apple's iPhone 4, including a trade-in program that drops the net price of Apple's smartphone to just $24.

    From now until December 11, RadioShack is holding an unprecedented sale on the Apple iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS. It is knocking $50 off the contract price, dropping the 32GB model to $249, the 16GB model to $149, and the iPhone 3GS down to just $49.

    Those are the lowest prices from any legitimate, authorized retailer for the iPhone 4 and 3GS right now, especially for a brand new phone.

    RadioShack also has a trade-in program that will drop prices further. If current iPhone users trade in their iPhone 3G, they'll receive a credit of $75 (assuming the device works and has an unbroken screen). Customers who trade in an iPhone 3GS in working condition will receive a credit of $125.

    Combining the $149 sale price with a $125 credit drops the effective price of the iPhone 4 16GB model to just $24, and the iPhone 4 32GB to $124 (not including taxes and fees).

    That's probably the best deal anywhere for a brand new iPhone 4. It is only available at RadioShack's brick-and-mortar retail locations.

    These prices are available to new AT&T customers, as well as to AT&T customers who are eligible for an upgrade. RadioShack says the promotion is meant to "boost awareness of its wireless business and create an edge up on the competition."

    Why bother? The iphone 5 is coming out in a few months. Then the iphone 6 will come out a few weeks after that. icon_lol.gif

    As true as that may be it's also just as true that those "new" phones will only have a few meaningless "upgrades". Oooh a tilt sensor, that's just what my phone needs.

    The so-called iPhone 5 is nothing more than a CDMA Verizon iPhone. It will not change form factors nor work on at&t's network. It won't be called the iPhone 5. The real iPhone 5 will come out on schedule according to apple's typical annual update in summer 2011. The iPhone 6 is not due until summer 2012. I believe the white iPhone 4 and the Verizon iPhone will come out within weeks of each other in the late winter or spring, if not together... Maybe they will be one in the same phone.

    Twenty four dollars? That's an outrage. Why, when I was a young fellow you could buy all of Manhattan for that.


    Manhattan or Sumeria? icon_smile.gif

    I did do this trade in program, but you have to pay the full tax on the full price of the iPhone 4. If I remember the tax we paid was about 100.00

    California tax law

    Full retail price is 599/699 depending on memory. For LA County at 9.75% makes the tax 58/68.

    I just bought a Samsung Galaxy S Captivate. Android is kick ass and I can't till froyo comes out. If it was in Canada I would have got the HTC EVO 4G with the 4.3 inch screen...

    As it stands, my phone is pretty damn sexy, me thinks.

    I think the iphone is like the last phone I would get with all the kick ass options out there. This is ESPECIALLY the case if I was in the States where you guys have the Samsung Epic, Fascinate and all those Droid phones. Mmmm...
