    Luckily we have the Dev Team working to help us out on that
    So would this mean that we could get the iPhones like we could with the 1st gen, so buy the iPhone take it home and unlock it all without a contract?

    So is this the only time we can buy the phone without an AT&T contract?! I want to know because if it's not, then I'll wait, but I don't wanna miss out on this deal!

    Some people don't like wasting gas and time to drive somewhere. Some people don't like standing in line at a store. Some people don't like getting stuck with an incompetent service rep that can't figure out how to do what you want.

    I guess some people don't know how to use a computer.

    Oh and in case you forgot, you get to drive back to that store again to get your phone and wait in a ridiculous line. Enjoy the exercise, mine will be delivered to my door.

    lol you're not very familiar with supply/demand economics are you? People will pay more because unless you're in line at ATT or Apple at 0dark30 on the 19th, you're not getting one for several weeks.

    I made thousands off of PS3 and XBOX 360 release day sales. Same principle.

    Your not familiar with the economy are you. At a $750 (after tax) price point + ebay fees @ that price....your gonna have to get nearly $900-$1000 for each iphone to make it somewhat worth while.

    Not gonna happen. They have never sold that high, the 3gs is nothing amazingly special up from the 3g, at least not worth a grand.

    @cpjr - why are you wasting your time talking to this idiot?

    If he thinks it's clever ripping people off then it's his problem.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    Ha! Someone is already on Craigslist using this to make $100 extra on each phone they order.

    Ummm... what are the legalities of this...

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    haha why do people think that because there is a new iphone coming out, that they should be rewarded with a cheaper price because they have bought the 3g??? If i bought a 52 inch TV last year, and then this year that model was discontinued and a new model came in to replace the one i bought, will i be able to get this years model at a cheaper price??? Are people that stupid? Get real...

    I make my living on eBay (that's my only income) and I filed a six figure income on my taxes in April. I know what I'm doing.

    And I'm not sure why anyone thinks its a ripoff when people willingly pay for it. Its called capitalism and I embrace it
