So this friend of mine has been boasting how he's got a brand new 3G iPhone for himself and his buddies for $300
His story, buy the phone and call the very next day to AT&T and claim you lost your phone, remove and throw the SIM card and jailbreak it..
I am new to US so don't know if this can be done and he's just inviting trouble.. I'm sure there wuold be a catch

I don't think lost phones are covered... How do they just give them away?

Each and every phone has a unique serial number called IMEI that is part of the information available during a phone call. T-Mobile knows my IMEI and I assume the others do as well. Be very careful. I don't know if or what they are doing with it, but the info IS available.

Yeah....he's full of crap.
There is no "genius" way to trick Apple and AT&T.....I laugh at all the time spent trying to figure one out.
