    It depends where you go. AT&T stores will not let you buy with out getting the contract in the store. Apple store will let you buy as many iPhones as you want without contracts. Becareful because if you get and iPhone and use it unlocked on AT&T they can see that its an iPhone and that you don't have the contract but I'm not sure what they would do about that.

    Carphone warehouse is where im ordering mine later today. You register the contract through iTunes and you don't have too. As long as it's jailbroken within 7 days or something.
