Eh. When you have the money to blow on an Apple product...

You probably have the money to blow on an overpriced wireless plan too.

It's interesting to see how close Android users are too. I'm guessing it's the 'latest and greatest' gouging by the wireless operators. iPhone pricing falls in line with other phones too.

Apple iphones run around $200 with a 2 year contract, just like all the other phones. Dont give me that crap in the morning.

Your not considering the cost of the plan, nothing is really subsidized, the carriers that offer the iPhone charge more for monthly service, to mostly post-paid users. To make up for the so called subsidy they give.

And your also not considering that it costs more for the carriers to buy an iPhone than the average Android phone. Which is why they are carried mostly on the bigger carriers.
prepaid offers iPhones on some plans like Virgin mobile, but the up front cost for the device, means that most users on prepaid choose Android.

Android is very popular with prepaid plans, and post-paid plans, but the fact is that all those prepaid plans drag down the average cost per user.

If you compared only post-paid Android users to post-paid iPhone users, the costs would be much closer.

My wife pays over $80/month for her ATT iPhone. My son and I both have androids and pay a total of ~$65 a month on TMobile. We don't have unlimited plans.

Also, she bought her phone subsidised from ATT. I bought both my phone and my son's phone outright. So perhaps you want to take the $375 for those two phones and divide it out over a few years for a more fair comparison...

Why do people think Apple is so expensive??? They are no more expensive than Android, Windows Phone, Dell, and the like. Apple's iPad is less expensive than the Surface, etc., etc., etc. I think people just love to hate them. LOL!!!

Very nice, mine is about 96.00 which includes 30.00 for tethering and texting on verizon. Even with unlimited iOS texting sometimes the text is sent as a regular paid SMS text. Ugghhhh, if you don't ave a plan these things can add up.

I don't do the tethering because of my job we have free wifi and also have wifi at home. Also taking the subway theres no need for wifi. But that sounds like a decent plan you have with VZ I just wish Tethering was part of all phone plans. Someday i hope this become the norm. I do get unlimited texting and calling. the net is 2.5GB a month but i never seem to go over 1.5GB even when im watching netflix while traveling to NJ.
