    OT:To all iPhone customers

    I bought 2 phones(wifey and I) for 599 each.. Today i find out about the price drop of 200 bucks per..Which to me means 400 cause I bought 2.. So I called apple(bought the phones at apple on-line store). I had to be transfered to a supervisor after lots of *****ing.. The supervisor then gave me $400 bucks worth of accessories(my choice) for the phone..I got 2 blue tooth head seats, a doc with remote that will plug into my bose, upgraded headphones, cases, etc..

    Then the supervisor called me back and said today is my lucky day. ..That I'm also gonna receive an additional $100 per phone credit because of this letter that apple just released(posted below). Since my accessory order was already processed earlier he gave me that and said i'm still entitled to the 100 credit per phone when that is released.

    To all iPhone customers:
    I have received hundreds of emails from iPhone customers who are upset about Apple dropping the price of iPhone by $200 two months after it went on sale. After reading every one of these emails, I have some observations and conclusions.

    First, I am sure that we are making the correct decision to lower the price of the 8GB iPhone from $599 to $399, and that now is the right time to do it. iPhone is a breakthrough product, and we have the chance to 'go for it' this holiday season. iPhone is so far ahead of the competition, and now it will be affordable by even more customers. It benefits both Apple and every iPhone user to get as many new customers as possible in the iPhone 'tent'. We strongly believe the $399 price will help us do just that this holiday season.

    Second, being in technology for 30+ years I can attest to the fact that the technology road is bumpy. There is always change and improvement, and there is always someone who bought a product before a particular cutoff date and misses the new price or the new operating system or the new whatever. This is life in the technology lane. If you always wait for the next price cut or to buy the new improved model, you'll never buy any technology product because there is always something better and less expensive on the horizon. The good news is that if you buy products from companies that support them well, like Apple tries to do, you will receive years of useful and satisfying service from them even as newer models are introduced.

    Third, even though we are making the right decision to lower the price of iPhone, and even though the technology road is bumpy, we need to do a better job taking care of our early iPhone customers as we aggressively go after new ones with a lower price. Our early customers trusted us, and we must live up to that trust with our actions in moments like these.

    Therefore, we have decided to offer every iPhone customer who purchased an iPhone from either Apple or AT&T, and who is not receiving a rebate or any other consideration, a $100 store credit towards the purchase of any product at an Apple Retail Store or the Apple Online Store. Details are still being worked out and will be posted on Apple's website next week. Stay tuned.

    We want to do the right thing for our valued iPhone customers. We apologize for disappointing some of you, and we are doing our best to live up to your high expectations of Apple.

    Apple CEO

    I told you all but you did not listen. The iPhone can never be a "bust" because of it's unbelievable one-week-wonder run in June, but it's not going to work. It's over.

    Get a KRZR and an iPod Touch and call it a day already.

    Can't you get like 20 times the storage for a cheaper price with an older ipod. Do people actually sit there and stare at their pretty screens? No offense to those paying out the wazoo for this stuff, but you're getting gypped.

    The only thing I've seen overhyped more than the iPhone is Ryan Leaf
