    i'll let you know, after you tell me what store offers a buy one get one half off on an iPhone 4.

    aka sounds like a buy one grab one type deal...

    I'm just saying, i sold my extra preordered iphone for over 1100$ on ebay, a buy one half off deal would be insane

    As long as the phone has been activated first you can take the simcard out and use just like an iPod touch. However if you ever have to restore the phone you will need and official AT&T sim to re activate again then remove the sim.

    ooo okay i hear ya

    no there is still a sim slot, its just a new micro sim...

    Your best bet would be to borrow your friends micro sim for a minute, activate it on your computer, then give him back his chip. As long as hes an iPhone customer, nothing will change on his account

    unlocked iPhone 4? probably unlocked from another country, in other countries you can just pay 20$'s to have your iPhone officially unlocked.
