    So I have T-mobile and want an iphone. Can i go into a at&t store buy the 8gb iphone for $399 and tell them i will activate it on itunes, then just unlock it when i get home for T-mobile and never sign a 2 year contract with at&t?

    Do they do a credit check before they will sell it? I have good credit so im not worried I just want to know what to expected going into at&t
    Thanks,

    Why wait? the 3g iphone will be over priced and locked to at&t. Ill get the G2 iphone wait a few more months till the 3g priced drops then pick one up later.

    You have to tell AT&T its a gift for someone and give them an AT&T phone number of who ever the gift is for. Just find someone who uses AT&T that how i got mine.

    Otherwise they run a credit check and try to sign you up for a contract right there.

    Oh yea AT&T is also selling refurbed iphone for cheap to. So call around and see which one in your area has them.

    That only way to get the phone is to buy it from the at&t web site if you go to the store then you
    have to get the contract, From the site will only cost you about $434 thats how i got mine....

    Why do you people continually think the phone is going to cost more? It actually may cost less through ATT if the decide to subsidize it, $199 and $299
