    Default WAIT...did i just get a non contract iphone 3gs for 300 bucks?
    ok so listen up...since i need a 700 dollar deposit in order to open a line wit att(terrible credit) we decided to add a phone to my gf's family plan...

    well i paid them their 300 bucks for the 32gb iphone 3gs...well they ask who will be picking it up...me or her...i said me...so they put the pick up under my name and everything...she said just bring the recipe and ID...

    now wait a mudda fluckkin minute...

    when they give me my phone...and i walk out a there...what if i decide not to activiate!?!?!?!

    they didnt add any number, name, bills or amounts to her contract yet...they just said ok its 300 bucks come get it at 7am...WTF!?!?!?!?!...they are just trusting ill put it on her contract!?!?!?(which i am) but still...i feel like maybe i should go buy a couple more!!!

    im just wondering how you guys think this will turn out...i dont really wanna call att and bring up this loop hole(if it truley is one) and have them play me and screw myself...cuz if i really think itll work like i think...i seriously will go buy like 3 more!

    what you guys think!?!?!?!?!?!

    You'd get that price only if you'd add another line or someone else is eligible to upgrade.

    Don't get smart with me. You asked if you should pick a few more up.

    Maybe you should just be happy you got a 32GB at $300.

    They won't let you pick it up without adding a new # and paying for and picking your plan.

    Maybe the extra line will be added when you pick the phone up. post up after you pick it up.

    I am sure they are going to make you add a line when you pick it up or make your girlfriend add a line. I bought mine at an AT&T store and I used a different line of mine that qualified for the $299 price for the 32GB. The rep told me that when I come to pick it up, they activate it, so I needed to make sure they activated it on the right number. I dunno. Good luck to you
