Why I (Still) Can’t Afford an Apple iPhone

It’s official, DiGi is finally offering the iPhone (albeit a little too late, most people are waiting for the next iPhone version or the iPad)

If you remember, I actually wrote a post on the 3 year total cost of iPhone ownership.

I was so tempted, because I am a DiGi subscriber, so I crunched the numbers.

If you compare this Digi iPhone plan vs the Maxis iPhone plan, it would seem that the DiGi plan offers cheaper phones, but will cost more in the long term.

Of course, the DiGi plan gives you more voice minutes, more messages, more bandwidth and no charges for exceeding monthly bandwidth quota.

I don’t know… I’m still very undecided. One day I will almost walk into the store and sign up. Other days I hesitate.

It’s not that I don’t have the money… but four or five thousand would look really comfortable in Rachel’s education savings account, instead of a gadget in my pocket.
