The $50 iPhone

Posted on Posted in Technology

i’ve wanted an iphone since before they came out. i mean, who hasn’t? but $400-500 for a phone? crazy…

so i patiently waited for the right time, the right moment to pull the trigger for the least amount of coin. and it just came. last month, my wife and i switched from sprint to at&t and got free refurbished phones. i got the Sony Ericsson W580i Walkman. it’s a pretty cool phone, but i didn’t use it once. i promptly sold it on eBay for $200, while buying upgrading to a refurbished iPhone from at&t for only $250. total out of pocket: $50. nice…

i admit i feel uncomfortable when i pull out a $400 phone, as i would never pay that much for a phone. i insist on calling it my $50 iPhone…and my good friends are growing weary of the story already…

and can i just say, wow, what a phone…
