I'm really effin pissed off right now with the attitude that apple is doing us a favor being in business for us to buy from. Shove the iphone up Steve Jobs @ss.
You're right, I've only seen "starting at $199" on the web site. AT&T's site is no help either. It's almost case-by-case because if you don't have a good credit rating, you might be required to put in a down payment. They want to check your credit and account status before quoting you a price.

It seems to be all over the place. I know a guy that's interested in it, though I don't understand why, as he is a Mac user. At least with iPhone, you know it's going to connect with the Mac decently, with Sprint, it's probably an open question. Maybe it's been answered, but I really don't care that much. If this guy gets it, then I'll see how it compares.

iPhone does vary in price, maybe not in as many steps or for as many reasons. If your contract is not up or you have poor credit, then they want you to fork over more up front. And when supply catches up, AT&T will offer an even more expensive iPhone to buy it without a contract at all.
