    No one on The Price Is Right knows what an iPhone costs



    Quick: How much does an iPhone 6 cost? If you read this blog at all, you probably know that answer can range wildly depending on a variety of factors: how much storage itís got, whether itís subsidized, what carrier itís on and what coverage youíve got. Even so, would you ever guess that an iPhone 6 costs $7,500? Well, thatís just what two contestants on The Price Is Right did on a recent episode of the show.

    On the New Yearís Edition of the popular daytime game show, host Drew Carey asked four contestants to tell him how much a 16GB iPhone 6 with a one-year plan featuring unlimited talk, text and 4GB of data would cost. Itís important to note here that he was asking for the full value of the phone: an unsubsidized 16GB iPhone 6, which retails for $629, plus 12 monthly payments for the data, talk and text.

    The actual price of all of this, as tallied by the show, is $1,969, which seems about right: $629 up front, and then a monthly bill of $108.33. But thatís not what Careyís contestants thought.

    One guessed the iPhone costs $7,500, while the next guest guessed $7,501. The third and fourth contestants guessed $850 and $930, respectively. Obviously, the $930 guess won it, but not before Carey quipped: ďI hope the marketing people at Apple are watching this.Ē
