Aircel of India will offer what is possibly the cheapest iPhone. This is going to be a pleasant surprise for many people as currently Airtel is offering the 3GS iPhone at Rs.20, 908. Aircel has cut down the iPhone 3GS price to id="mce_marker"80 or Rs.9, 999.

Aircel will offer this black 8GB phone for an upfront payment of Rs.9, 999 or an advance rental payment of Rs.3, 000. The advance rental option will give you 2GB of data per month for a year or thousand minutes and two thousand five hundred text messages per month for half a year.
The phone will also be available unlocked. You will be able to take the phone anywhere in the world and insert any SIM of your choice. It will only cost an additional fifty five dollars. In the USA, you can pick up the 8GB 3GS iPhone for free but with a monthly contract of $39.99 for two years. Overall, the contract would cost $960 over a period of couple of years and the phone will be locked to AT&T for the entire tenure of the contract.
