    You all do realize that the prices after doing this "trick" are the same exact as walking into an Apple store and paying full price for the phone with no commitment. . .

    Your missing the point. Its not about the price, its getting it delivered at your door on the 19th vs. waiting in lines forever.

    I though unsubdized meant that you get the iPhone without going on AT&T.

    This trick does not seem to work in the Apple Canada store. I tried it on Apple USA and it worked fine. Tried the same on Apple Canada and when I click add to cart to add it, it shows and empty window.

    Sux.

    Unsubsidised means that the carrier does not subsidise the price. But all phones sold by Apple in the USA are locked to AT&T and in the UK to O2.

    Luckily we have the Dev Team working to help us out on that

    The price after tax ain't worth it. I'll go the early termination route.

    No, I know that the apple store hack is for an unsubsidized phone but I was saying people were talking about getting a non-contract phone from AT&T store or the Apple Store so I was wondering if that was true. I had no idea you could just pick up a full price phone ala the first gen phones. You couldn't do that for 3g could you?

    ^It would mean you arent eligible for an upgrade with AT&T being a current customer with a contract. Not prepaid.

    So wait a second, does this mean once they are released I can go to an apple store and buy one, without a contract, for full price? I thought with the 3G you could only buy it if you extended your AT&T contract, I didnt think you could just buy the phone.

    I just want the phone, I don't care about the price

    EDIT: Or is this the only time I could buy a 3GS without being an AT&T customer?

    Officially - but time will tell if it can be unlocked.

    I ordered one. They only let you order one at a time apparently because I tried getting 3 and they said I had too many in my cart :P

    And I plan on selling a few on eBay because I'm sure they'll be going for well above the $600-$700 that I paid if the last two years are any indication.

    Ummm yeah, good luck with that.

    If thats a true unsubsidized, non-contract price....then why would someone who could buy one from Apple for $700, want to buy one from you for more?? The reason they sold for more than retail before is because it was a contract discounted price.
