iPhone Europe

I used my iPhone pretty extensively in Europe during the last trip. The reaction was interesting.It’s viewed as a great phone, but the limitation to high priced, long term contracts is a huge barrier to everyone I talked to. These folks are used to buying unlocked phones and switching plans or carriers as needed. Avoiding the iPhone seems more of a protest against changing the current adventageous system than a real economic decision for them.Here in the US, we’re used to carrier lock-in and contracts.
