After a week of Craiglist browsing and talking with countless incompetent sellers, people wanting me to meet in shady areas known for crime, etc etc I'm thinking my best option to obtain iPhone is through AT&T directly. I also plan on using it on T-mobile. As far as I know, here is the total cost of getting iPhone without contract: iphone 3g 8gb - 200 one month service - 70 activation fee - 36 cancellation fee - 175 total = 481 :x Of course, you can buy a refurbed for 100 so price drops to 381 accordingly Are there any fees I'm missing? Are my numbers right? thanks for your time! EDIT: after much contemplation, i decided that i won't be getting the iphone at all. i am pretty content with my ipod touch and don't mind carrying a phone with me. also, i just realized my t-mobile contract is up so i could pick up a nice blackberry at no charge Please Register or Log in to view images if you guys would like to do this, i have more detailed offerings listed on another forum. u can go check it out at: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=657146&highlight=t-mobile iphone contract good luck getting an iphone out of contract!
