I am no stranger to paying top dollar for unlocked phones, however for the most part I have been able to always snag a hot phone for under 600... I badly want the Milestone ever since I used my friends Verizon Droid but everywhere I look it is 700.00+.:eek:

Why so pricey??

I just bought a Nokia N900 which I LOVE and I was able to grab it for 429.99 with Bing cashback and rebate.

Man do I want a Milestone...
Well, until next year the Droid/Milestone will be the hottest Android phones so you have to pay for the hotness factor.

Just the way it is.
You can get a Milestone for €430-450. This is almost exactly the same price range as the HTC Hero, which has comparatively crap hardware. It is considerably less expensive than an unlocked iPhone 3GS.

What's the problem? I mean, besides the fact that the US dollar is worthless.
