    Germany is the first country, other than France, to offer an unlocked iPhone. For €999 ($1481/£720), the German citizen can march over to T-mobile and purchase an iPhone devoid of contracts and locks. This is more than double the price of a stock iPhone, which is roughly €399. However, when you think about it, €999 actually isn't all that bad. After the initial €399 cost, T-Mobile iPhone customers are boxed into a 2-year contract. After all fees are said and done, iPhone customers would spend €1575 to maintain two years of service, which they are legally obligated to do, lest they incur early termination fees.

    T-Mobile also announced that it would be happy to unlock iPhones already purchased, but did not name a price for this premium service at time of publication.

    why not just buy it from France instead where it is against French law to sell mobile phones locked to phone networks, considering both are neighbouring countries it would be surprising to see how many Germans pay that ridiculous price.

    If the iPhone could make pizza, I think it would be totally worth €999.
