I remember someone telling me just yesterday how expencive and premium am iPhone is. 100 bux is an appropriate price for it at least, concidering the specs and functionality

$100 without a contract is about right. $100+$1600 2 yr contract is expensive.

I think this is only Walmart's doing. Apple prices are still the same so is the price at at&t. Still surprised some that it's so low, even for Walmart...

It was a hoax, they came out to say it was a pricing error and its fixed now

From reading android fan responses to the GSIII it's been a dissappointment. Looks like you guys got Samsunged

the difference in the SGS3 and the i4s is thus, taco:
People are disappointed in the SGS3 because they imagined some crazy rocket ship mind reading phone with untold power.. and got "just" the worlds strongest phone with usefully cool - but not - mind - blowing new features instead.
People were disappointed in the i4s because they imagined some crazy mind reading phone with new features... and got the exact same phone they already had with a voice control feature no one uses after a month... and a less functional android notification bar.
see.. there are 2 different types of appointment.
And looking at the 2, I, and most people, would rather be "samsunged", than "iphoned"..

I would rather have a phone that works, than a phone that needs all that processing power just to sometimes have a smooth interface. And yes, i have had both phones. Had the Atrix before the I4s and ios beats android in functionality any day. And also, i4s got more speed and camera power over the 4. And according to the facts (sales) more people would rather be iphoned than samsunged ;)

I work at Walmart in a wireless center in NE Ohio, and I can tell you our prices have not dropped. At least not yet. First thing I did after reading this story is check. I just hope we don't get a lot of people coming in and asking about it.

These are insanely low prices especially for a 4S.
I was going to keep my 4 for another year and skip the fall 2012 model, but I had plans on spending the $20 and upgrading my battery.
Come fall 2012, if these price drops continue, it may make more sense to drop the money on a 4S because it will be just as cheap than replacing the battery on my 4.

so much for not trolling in Apple articles...

99.00 is an appropriate price for the iphone 4S.
