ok, well im currently pondering ways to get my hands on an iphone thats not currently tied to a contract or in any plan. i first thought of buying one off craigslist, with no contract of course. BUT i really dont like the idea of buying one from someone that i dont know at all and risk getting a product with something wrong. well, then i could buy one without a contract straight from apple. thats 500 bucks, i think, for a 8gb 3g. today i thought that i could just simply buy a 3gs and cancel the contract after a certain amount of time (week, i think). so heres how it goes: iphone 3gs, 16 gig: 199 activation: 36 first month: 70 early termination: 175 Grand total (w/o tax): 480 for a 16 gig 3GS. an 8gig 3G without a contract (just buying it): 500 bucks. first off, is all of this correct and will i run into any problems? second, has anyone done this? third, how much is a 16 gig 3GS w/o contract? finally, is there ANY way to buy an iphone and take it home without getting hooked with a contract? that would be so easy to do! just jailbreak it and you pay only 200 bucks at the end of the day. Thanks!!
