    The only reason I jailbreak is so I can use it on T-Mobile. If they started selling factory unlocked iPhones, I'd be camping out for the next iPhone and happy to pay full retail!

    Is that the regular cost of an iPhone? Seems a few hundred dollars more...Would've bought regular $199 and Jailbreak for free!
    That Thanks button is there for a reason!

    You know what would be really cool? Just delete this POS thread. The first two pages are about "unlocked" handsets.

    Start over. Please.

    This is awesome. But it could be Apple attempt to clear their stock for the new iPhone.

    i truly believe that if apple really wanted to dominate the smartphone market they only need to make the new iPhone work on other carrier's 3G networks. Although with Sprint rolling out 4G and at the rate other carriers are upgrading their networks internally, it's really only a matter of time before this happens.

    Guys, think about this, why would apple sell iphones without a contract if they know they wont be unlocked? obviously theyre charging more for them because they are factory unlocked...Actually, my iPhone got wet (salt water from the beach; fail) yesterday and today i went to apple and said they will give me a brand new 3G without a contract for $150; i told them the phone was going overseas.

    im pretty sure iPhones without contract are factory unlocked.

    iPhones without a contract are just that. They are still locked to AT&T in the US. Its called an "exclusivity agreement". Google it if need be.

    "iPhones without a contract are factory unlocked"..........LOL.

    I sure they are just doing this so they don't have to check everytime to make sure you have a valid contract with ATT. Save them some time.

    Agreed! Which brings me back to my point that this thread is WORTHLESS. Members are STILL reading the first page or two and assuming that they can buy an iPhone factory unlocked......


    EPIC FAIL.
