    Hey guys. I've taken extra shifts at work just to try save over a grand for the iPhone 5s 64 gig.
    In Australia it cost $839 for the 16gig, 32gig $999 ,64 gig $1129.

    I've worked over 30 hours already and expecting to get a minimum if $600 and have already saved $450 ๐Ÿ˜€.
    Call me crazy but I'm gonna get it on launch day.

    wouldnt it be easier to cancel the current line you are in and then reopen it? thats what i did, costing me about 150 less instead of buying the phone full price tax and all lol.

    Only in the US are subsidized phones the norm. Most of the world always buys phones outright. OP is an Aussie.

    Yeah buddy it's not easy. Been so stingy. Had. A $50 budget this week. No drinks. Eating at home. It's tough trying to stick to it. But it will be worth it at the end of the day. I'm giving my women my iPhone 5 64 gig.

    What do you mean ? I don't like contracts. I avoid them. I would rather save up money than buy it then pay some company money for 2 years. I'll probably go over bill and get charged extra. I like owning what is mine.

    I don't think you're crazy. You've set a goal for yourself and you've met or about to have met your goal.

    You deserve a cookie.

    Nothing wrong with people that want to do this but I work enough hours as it is and this is a purchase I DO NOT need, It is something I want as most of us, Just keeping up with others that just want the newest and again nothing wrong with this but if I cannot put it on my credit card and pay off in full on the next bill for no interest, Then I Might not be in the right position and may need to rethink, I hate interest and long work hours even more.

    I feel your pain buddy. Work is crap as is. It's just something I have been looking forward too. Every year I spoil myself with something expensive.
    I pick an iPhone. I barely bit myself anything so I guess it's more of a treat

    This is one of those times that I always suggest finding anyone who has discounts at stores that sell iPhones. I have a 10% discount at Walmart and they already confirmed they would have iPhone for sale at full cost. 10% off the $810 (incl. Tax) for a 32GB iPhone is a pretty good chunk of change to save.

    There are no discounts available where I stay.
