In an open letter posted on Apple's website, Steve Jobs has announced the company will offer early iPhone adopters a store credit to offset yesterday's drop in price. Buyers who paid full price and are not eligible for price protection will receive $100 in credit at Apple's online store. Details will be announced next week. Although carriers, often drop the price of high-end phones after a few months of sales, the suddenness and steep drop of yesterday's price cut took many owners by surprise, creating a wide-spread negative reaction.

If you didn't think the iPhone was worth $600.00

You should not have purchased it. I bought it at $600.00 because I felt it was well worth it- and it was- this is the most satisfying phone I've ever used.

I've spent $600.00 on crap phones (HTC Apache, anyone?) promising all sorts of functionality that it didn't deliver. That was a waste of money- it wasn't a $600.00 product.

The iPhone delivered its promise. I'd be more PO'd if I had spent $500.00 on some under-engineered POS from HTC (that video of the Touch on Youtube is priceless) to "save my money."

Times have changed. Apple was obviously going to release a touch-screen iPod priced similarly to the outgoing model, and Apple can't charge a $300.00 premium just so it can make calls, so obviously the price was going to come do...

bluecoyote-You have just written the best review I have ever seen on here. Yes, the iphone was worth $600, but i think the price drop was because of the new ipod touch. Great review, I totally agree with you.

I agree with everything you said. But to me the point is not that the Iphone is not worth 600, but wouldn't you have rather paid 400 for the same device?

That's my thing, a lot of iphone users are acting like 200 dollars is no big deal.

It's not stupidity...

...to want something immediately. That's just human nature.

But patience does pay off if you have any.
I agree. I don't have an iphone, but when i was a youngster I used to wait on line for Jordan sneakers, sure i could have waited a few days and skipped the line, but everyone wants to be the first with something.

My only problem is the iphone buye...

widespread negative reaction

Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

for all those that were idiots, and now are feeling the sting of their stupidity? this is EXACTLY why Jobs shoulda just shrugged; then again, he's attempting to sell a TON of these things, so a few mill back to dumb people will give others hopes that he'll do it again. Rolling Eyes

idiots.
Hey, Apple HAD to take care of its early adopters.

Otherwise there'd be none the next time they launch a new product, and it would land with a thud. Surprised
