This is a total RIP OFF!..... The costliest price in the world for this phone. You can buy around 3 iphone 4 (32 GB )in the UK for this price. so dont buy it unless you wish to waste your money
Steve, London, United Kingdom
for that price, i can buy 2 X 3G I phones... and I will have 6G I Phone... what a rip-off!!

I totally agree with JP..if i were a customer of that shop i would just not go back!

correction to first comment Mr.JP ; actually you will pay extra 653% on the original price for the 16GG. imagine that..

I don't understand this whole drama... there are much cheaper places to get it.
Mohammad Al Huraiz, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Unbelievable pricing !!! More than the cost of a Notebook! How did they get it ? How can they offer warranty when Apple is not involved ?

That's a rip off ! I bought mine for 3499 aed, much closer to the UK price (3300 aed for unlocked version) Why don't you look at other sites? Aido is also selling it and lots on souq also...

Some people pay anything to own it first!! This is how the Dubai market gets spoiled. The rest have to wait for etisalat or Du to get it here officially so that the users can get correct retail prices. Only problem is availability. When I saw ads for the 3Gs they never had it in stock. Now that the iPhone 4 is out, both have a lot of stock for the 3Gs ..

The price difference is 565% higher, not 84%. Just so that your complaint is factually accurate.
