      I know. I have been to brazil many times. (Minha esposa é Paulista), and I went to see the prices for the macbook pro retina (when it was released), low and behold, 66% more expensive than in Norway.
      But as far I know, the prices in Norway, England, Germany etc are the same on Apple products. But 66%, that’s just ludicrous!
      So I feel ya!

  • Diego Milano

    Columbia is not a country. You meant Colombia instead. 🙂

  • Jason Baroni

    You know it’s Brazil when the iPhone 6 goes from US$1.500 for 16GB unlocked version.

    • Diego Milano

      No kidding. It’s cheaper to get it from someone who can buy it unlocked in the US and bring it to you, even if you have to pay more for it- that’s what I’ve always done so far.

      • Ignacio Irigoyen

        Yes, you can buy the plane tickets to US, buy the iphone and return and is still cheaper.

      • Jason Baroni


      • Diego Milano

        Well, that’s an exaggeration as that would cost me around $2.5k or more, but yeah. 🙂

    • Kosiobg

      you know it’s Bulgaria when the iPhone 6 goes from 1612 US $for 16GB unlocked

      • Jason Baroni


    • jack

      goes FROM $650 TO $1500

      • Jason Baroni

        You didn’t get it… Here the 6 STARTS at US$1.500.

  • Kanzler

    sorry 4 OT, but why doesnt iDB report of the big vibrations of the ipad air 2? just bought one and now im thinking of bringing it back to the store. its really horrible and everyone got this issue (only some dont care)

    • Rowan09

      What do you mean?

      • Kanzler

        the ipad air 2 is even vibrating on lowest volume. there is a large thread on macrumors too, cant link it here because of moderation

    When you realize that its more affordable to buy a trip to Miami, spend 3 days there and buy an iPhone 6 at the Apple Store, than buying in a Brazilian Carrier Store… That is just sad.

    • Steve R.

      Why are iPhones so expensive in Brazil? High import fees?

  • pnh

    You’d think they might want to take care of the back orders first where they have already introduced the phones.

  • John

    No thank you. Already returned my 6+. Outdated device for almost the price of a MacBook Pro.
    Not worth the money. Buying a 5S instead, same specs more elegant.

    • Jukkmoddr

      Same specs?????

      • John

        Yes sir, processor just clocked at 1.4ghz when the 5S is clocked at 1.3. Not a big difference and that “difference” gets eaten by the bigger screen, same 1 GB of RAM but uglier design. Same iSight camera, same FaceTime camera it has NFC chip, I don’t go to Walgreens a lot, and still it’s faster when I just take out my wallet, card and swipe it. And with these new “chip” technology being implemented here in the US you are better off using your credit/debit card to avoid fraud. The M8 chip is the same as the M7, just that the M8 can track how many flights have you climbed. I don’t need that. And that’s it. Not worth the money, not worth the upgrade.
        Oh, I forgot about the ugly antenna lines. When I had it, it felt like a bigger iPod touch. It didn’t feel like the quality of an iPhone.
