    According to the documents, the phones are NOT unlocked. Please change the title of this thread so people (like me) don't get excited over nothing.
    Apples taste good.

    *Someone* needs to start getting their facts straight before posting "news"
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    So misleading...there's no difference in what happens now except not proving you have an AT&T account...

    No way, it is easier for the mmi writers to just jump to conclusions and post far fetched stories.

    How is this even news though? I bought a 3GS without a contract when it came out for full retail of $599.

    I told them I was going to use it as an ipod and in the future would look into getting an att plan.


    Lots of people have purchased iPhones without contracts from apple, you just have to pay the full unsubsidized price, which for 3GS is $599 for 16GB and $699 for 32GB.

    I think this article IS big news! After reading the article about all the things people must do to get an ipad before release, I feel like this shows apple actually cares some about it's customers..

    well, I was about to celebrate this news but read the fine print "unsubsidized full price iphones" I would not pay $599 for 3GS with 3.1.3 baseband 5.12 knowing its an expensive paperweight before I go make the purchase. BTW I'm on Tmobile.
