iPhone 3GS cost in SA leaked (thanks for nothing Vodacom)

Posted by Minnaar Pieters 24 Jul 2009
While I expect the high prices, I think it really shows poor service by Vodacom to not have ANY info on their website. Get with the program, the iPhone 3G has been announced in June already.

I walk into vodashop a few times a week to find out about 3GS, and I am normally stared at like I am speaking Mandarin.

Well, thanks to Craig Nicholson - he somehow got hold of the South African iPhone 3GS prices from Cellucity. However in my previous experience, Cellucity has higher prices for the iPhone. For example, Cellucity asked a R1000 more on a cash iPhone when I bought it last year. Seeing as it is a in-demand devices, it is understandable.

Lets hope Vodashops can also lower the prices slightly this time round (the finance option is what you pay in addition to your contract should you choose not to pay the once off fee):

Update: I spoke to a Cellucity representative who told me that these prices are entirely untrue. On the other hand, seeing as it is "leaked" they wont confirm anything.
