    Hi, can anyone please explain to me how to get a iPhone 3gs without contract? - I have seen some thing about buying it in UK with a "Pay as go" solution, but is it possible to buy the 3gs in U.S. without contract?

    and where?

    and what is the price? (Have seen the 32 gb should cost 699 $, is that right?)



    - Thanks

    you can just buy it at the apple store and that price sounds right

    you could buy from att but they will give you the third degree about why you dont want a contract. apple will just sell it to you

    is it possible to buy an iphone with the 3 year contract WITHOUT adding a data plan?? I just recently found out the data plan is MANDATORY along with the 3 year commitment/contract. What the hell?? I just want to use wi-fi

    Also, i dont think I, or most people are willing to buy the phone alone, which is like 399 - 699 (3g - 3gs 32GB)

    arikado: If you get a contract, the prices are in the thousands, so Apple probably lowered the price of the iPhone because of that. Without the contract, the price is higher.

    lol it's a 2 year contract here in the USA. Here, the cheapest you can get an iPhone is for $199+$70 per month for 2 years. That's about $1800-$2000.

    $70 for unlimited data (actually 5gb of data, they never tell you) and 450 minutes.

    $20 for unlimited texting
    =====
    $90 for iPhone if you want unlimited texting, $70 w/o

    But if Apple just sells it to me, can I then use it immediately as a "ipod touch" and jailbreak it? - or do I have to activate with att sim before I can jailbreak to my carrier?

    You can just take it home in a brand new package, then I'm not 100% sure about this one, but I heard that you have to use someone else's sim to activate it thru iTunes, then you can jailbreak and unlock it, and use it on T-Mobile

    Or maybe you just open it, and immediately jb+unlock it
