    Absolutely not, this is why they charge such outrageous amounts of money for the phones. Because some people are dumb enough to stand in a line for several hours for a phone that will be old technology in 4 months. And hundreds less, after they raped all the tech junkies that just couldn't wait

    I'm not sure I'm clear. Please state your opinion louder.

    Sorry I am just saying if people waited and didn't rush out and get these things, these companies wouldn't charge such outrageous amounts for them. Look at the Playstation 3 years ago. People waiting in long lines, paying way to much money for it, but they had to have it. Just saying, didn't mean to offend anyone

    No offense taken of course. All new smart phones are pretty much the same price though. $199 to extend the contract and $449? To buy at full price.

    The line here is a mad house but I'm unemployed and someone is paying me to stand here so it's a win win fit me.

    $449? I wish! None of the high end androids are as low as $449 off contract. They are usually $600+ at launch, then go down as newer ones release. Maybe the androids with similar specs to the iPhone start that low, but none of the good ones.

    It's pretty easy to offend people when you say things that directly correlate with 'you are so stupid'. Lol but no hard feelings. I don't think the pricing is dictated by first day sales though. I think the millions and millions of sales that come after today might have more to do with it. I'm getting the 64 gig this time around. With my appradio it runs solely off my phone in my truck. This way I can finally fit all my music on one device.

    The derps stand in line because the phone usually sells out quickly

    Why not wait a bit before getting it? Does being the first to have it increase your life points or something?
