Diminish the cool factor? If overpaying for a cell phone and data plan is cool, count me out. Also, as someone pointed out on a different website, Walmart DOES sell iPods, so why not the iPhone?

Besides, how much of a statement is a $300 phone anyway? Lots of people can afford a $300 phone, I have that much cash in my wallet. I guess iPhone owners are only trying to impress the impoverished members of our society who already have other, more important things to worry about than cell phone brand. You'd have to be a major A-hole to think owning an iPhone makes you better than anyone.

I don't think "cool" has anything to do with the price of an object.

Beanie babies used to be cool and they cost about $5 each.

Offering the iPhone for a $2 discount isn't going to draw many people to Walmart. If they did offer the $99 4GB version then that would be a big deal, because a lot of people don't need 8GB of storage on a phone.

Whats with all the iPhone haters? I've had one since the July launch of the 3g and I love it, its pretty much a laptop replacement (I know it cant do everything, but its close). And who cares about $35 for data, that's not that much money for being able to access the web anywhere, an air card costs $60 a month. Of course going to walmart to buy an iPhone does not sound fun. I'd rather go to an AT&T store where all the employees still have their front teeth.
