Readers Respond: How Much Would You Pay for a Smartphone?

Responses: 12

From the article: The Best Budget Smartphones
Now that Apple and AT&T have cut the price of the iPhone 3G down to $99, other smartphone makers are following suit. We're seeing more and more smartphones available for less than $100. That has me wondering: How much are you willing to pay for a new, full-featured smartphone? Name your price.

cheaper monthly plans!!

Actually i'm ok with paying more but monthly plans are just so expensive. it's ridiculous if you think about how much you would pay for phone plans with data.

180

The closer smartphones become to performing like PC's or laptops the value will obviously continue to increase. I'd pay up to 180.00.

My buying price

100.00$ is about rthe most I could afford. Times are hard these days. Let me know what you think?

Less than 60$

I won't pay more than 60$ for a smartphone on an expensive plan. If the plan isn't that expensive, I'd pay from 0-100$. But, for example, the IPhone 3G S costs $100 with a $60/month plan? That's ridiculous. After all, everyone knows that probably half of the price is so just because it's from Apple. I refuse to pay an extra $50 just because Apple created this phone. I'm on a budget and I'd rather not spend that much on quality. I'm not against a crappy, cheap phone as long as it does what I want it to do, which is, elementarily, the purpose of a phone: to communicate with people. I don't care about apps, e-mail, internet...just get me a decent camera and a music player, plus decent phoning and texting and I'm good to go!
