    Is it possible to buy an iPhone 3GS from Apple/AT&T with the contract and everything, then opt out of the contract and keep the iPhone?

    I believe you will have to pay a severe cancelation fee, not sure how much the fee is but i think it puts the entire cost of the phone above $600.

    You'll probably have to pay an early termination fee of some sort.

    It'll be well over $400 by the time you've paid your first month's fee, the activation fee, and the other miscellaneous costs. You're looking at around $550 - $600 total.

    If you want a no contract iPhone, I suggest you look on craigslist or ebay.

    okay. i really would like to buy an iPhone. Besides ebay or craigslist, where would be a good place to look? Or which is better, ebay/craigslist? I'd like to stay under $300.

    Its $199 for 16GB 3GS + $175 Early Termination Fee + $70 first months bill + $36 Activation Fee + Any Taxes = About $480 w/o tax and add $100 for 32GB.
