a friend of mine at work has just recieved 2 iphone 4s, sim free 100 pound each from his auntie who works for apple he brought them into work for 2 workmates they were brand spanking new so obviusly i asked the question get me one !!! she has just flown out to barca for a holl so he is going to ask when she arrives back in the uk

so the question is what discount do they get !! and another thing it just really shows how much profit apple are making for selling these at 500 a throw !!

I think they get a large discount, something like 40% off 2 items and then something smaller like 25% off any further items. Don't quote me on that though!!

he isnt sitting on a goldmine Im sure-even if apple employees get iphones for 100 quid,which I would be very surprised at,there is no way they can just have as many as they want. 100 quid a phone is an 80 percent discount-seems unlikely to me,but I have no way of proving either way,but I dont believe they can just ask for dozens at this price.

apple likes its employees to be seen to use its own products,so I can see that MAYBE they can buy 1 or 2 products for PERSONAL use at this price,not for supplying to extended family.

Last I read the cost of parts for the iPhone was about £150 then there's production costs, not to mention R&D. Apple will be selling these at a loss to employees if they are doing so at £100. They may be doing a deal for staff so they all have iPhones sat in their pockets to spread brand awareness.

They probably don't want Apple staff to have a Nokia in their pocket!

According to The Independent:

Employees get a 25 per cent discount on iPods and Macs, but none for the iPhone. Employees said they have not yet been told whether they will get a discount for the iPad.

So you work with the guy and have seen the phones and know the colleagues who have paid £100?

People offering Iphone 4's at £100 a throw sounds like a scam to me.
