Once you pay the advance, we will immediately give you an appointment date and time, starting August 22 when you can come and experience a full demonstration and collect your iPhone, all ready to use with your contacts and settings, by paying the balance amount.

You can get the iPhone with Airtel service on same Price.

After seeing this High Price I turn my mind from having one. I am shocked first to see the price. In US it is around 9000 Rs (199USD) with two years service agreement with AT&T. I am wondering why Vodafone and Airtel not mainitaing the same with their TWO years of Service agreements.
I am seeing it totally flop show of iPhone in India. Hope the price will get down soon and Gadget lovers get this cool phone in their budget.
