Could I just buy an iPhone straight from Apple, then cancel my service after I sign up for it, unlock my iPhone and then use it on T-Mobile like I want to? This would help me avoid paying the ridiculous prices on eBay.
Is this a plausible method of action or are there loopholes to prevent this?

Yeah, I didn't see any. And of course I'm not the first person to think of that, duh. I just wondered because I didn't see any threads.

Just come to my place in NYC and Buy it! that's all yo need to do! and it's Unlocked! and trust me there is no Apple nor ATT pricing! Start's @ $850.00 for a 3GS!

Ya you need to have a ATT number and current plan or activate service with ATT when you buy it. You can try to buy the phone, sign up for new service, cancel the service, and keep the phone.....

I had an idea too. I have found this method the most affective in obtaining a 3GS. YMMV
Friend with a camcorder to film the incident (upload to MMi afterwords)
1) Walk into your local Apple Store
2) Proceed to the iPhone Display area
3) Break out your trusty pocket knife and cut the cords on about five iPhones (Alarms will sound, so be quick)
4) Stuff your pockets with the phones and maybe a case or two if you have time
5) As the Apple employees start coming near you start screaming random jibberish
6) Run for the exit. Try to knock over as many people as you can while running out of the store.
7) Run into some nearby woods and hide there for a few days till things blow over. Luckily at this point you will have several iPhones to keep you company.
8) Log on to MMi and tell us about your epic victory at the Apple Store
