    I'm interested in getting an iPhone 4. I currently have a 3G 16GB, and have someone actually interested in buying it for $500, possibly more. I have read from numerous sources that the iPhone 4 will be $599 for the 16GB version, which I want.

    I don't want to extend my contract, or upgrade.

    Can I just purchase the iPhone 4 without the contract using the money I sold my 3G with? If so, from where? Apple.com or the Apple Store or something? Also, will this come with the 1 year warranty in case of any problems (Products like these are usually glitchy the first few months.)

    Lastly, if I got the iPhone 4 without upgrading and just buying it alone, is there any complications I have to worry about? I already have the $30 data plan, but will AT&T say anything? One example of a complication I might have is that I am using SIM and have to get microSIM..

    Do I go to the AT&T store and ask for microSIM or do I use the DIY-tutorial thing?

    Thanks very much

    Hey, sorry I can't answer but I am looking for the same thing. But my situation is worse. I live in Greece and when the iPhone 4 will be released I want to get it

    Exactly, which is why I sell my 3G for $500 and then pay like a $100 for the iPhone 4.

    However, where do I get it? And would it come with 1 year warranty in case I need to get it replaced? I'm looking for a more official place, unlike eBay. Even the people who get it from eBay get it from somewhere.

    I don't think much people will want to buy your iPhone 3GS for $500, should of sold it before the keynote.
