iPhone 3G spotted at Greenhills

Several independent reports indicate that gray market iPhone 3G has landed in the Philippines. Apparently, there are plenty of them coming in from neighboring Hong Kong.

The price — a cool Php61,500 for the 8GB. The cost includes the mandatory 2-year contract from the HK telco (Hutchison Telecom) reselling the iPhone 2.0 for Apple. The 24-month plans in Hong Kong costs ~$64/month for the unlimited data plus minutes while a lowest plan only costs ~$24 a month but will have an initial fee of ~$377.

That means, a fully contract free iPhone 3G 8GB in HK will set you back (24 * $24 + $377) a total of $953 or roughly Php43,000.

In any case, you can actually fly to HK overnight and spend less than Php50k for the entire trip with an iPhone 3G in tow.



  1. And I thought the retail price of the iphone is overpriced! whew…. 61k for a pda phone? unless that thing can function as my phone, pda, gaming rig, and as my fridge, I’m not going to fork over 61,000.

    In my opinion, the iPhone 3G is good, but not great. With its current specs and functions, I don’t think it justifies the outrageous price Apple and its partners are asking for it.

    I’ve read from a reliable source that Globe Telecom will sell the iPhone 3G here for around 10k + 2 year contract of their plan 3500. You get it for free at plan 5000. Imagine how much this baby would cost for prepaid subscribers.

  2. 61,000 what a rip off! I even spotted one in glorietta (infomaxx) being sold for 71,000! Is it really going to be that expensive?

  3. Brand new Mobile phone Plasma tv , Laptop game at cheap price come with complete accessories with one year international warranty.
