Thread: No More Online iPhone Sales | 3g Data Prices

  1. #261
    I have an idea but i dont know if it will work

    I have a friend who is currently using ATT with an iphone they got after May 27th, so they would be able to get a free 3g if they up their contract two years. So if I took them into the Apple store, and they up their contract and get a 3g phone (im assuming they trade in their old iPhone)
    They could add another line to their plan (which i think is 10$) and get another 3g iPhone.
    Then the next month could they cancel that extra line or would ATT kill the credit card and charge an extreme amount for the phone?
    If I helped you, help me and hit thanks

    The termination fee applies to extra lines as well. Youd have to pay a crazy fee for doing that

    Couldnt I just take my gf into the AT&T store and have her upgrade her existing AT&T phone to the new iphone, extending her contract 2 years (which she doesnt care) and then turn around and just reactivate her old cell phone, saying the iphone was stolen? Could you also just report the iphone as stolen to your cell insurance, getting yourself an extra one for much less cash, and sell it on ebay for a price that would cover the insurance deductible AND the original price of the first subsidised iphone 3g I went in to get? not that I would ever hatch such a diabolical plan.... .. . . .

    They are stating you must extend your contract 2 years, but are they stating that you must have a specific plan? I dont think so? find a friend with at&t and do it.

    OR just buy it overseas. This seems like it will be the most viable option.

    I don't think there's any other way to get around this issue other than buying the 3g iPhone overseas or dealing with the early termination fee.

    Feasible, assuming we can hacktivate it. Also that apple doesnt hit you with those "penalties"

    Remember You're not buying the phone from At&t............ So The Rules Will Be Different Anyway.
    Trust Me There Are Many Ways......... Early Term Fee Don't Apply Until After 14 Days I Did It With The Current iPhone.

    It does on the new one, if you cant return the new iPhone they hit you with the fee.

    So what do you think is the best way to get a 3g iPhone without dealing with fee's? What if you just wanted to spend 199$ on a 4GB model and nothing more, (other than taxes) how would you do it?

    Ok. I'm not really understanding this. My 2 year contract isnt up for another year. I bought my iphone this last December.Could I go into AT&T on July 11 and extend my contract and buy a new iphone for $200?

    you just sign another two year contract. It doesn't add on to your current contract, it gets rid of your current contract and replaces it with a new one.

    so basically you walk in, sign new contract, and are released July 11th, 2010

    Ok Think About This.... You Buy The iPhone From The Apple Store You Activate it There And Then You Decide To Cancel The Service So You Call At&t To Let Them Know. They Are Not Going To Care About The Phone Because You Didn't Buy It From Them & If They Force You To Take It Back To Apple Just Fuss About The 15% Restocking Fee And I Doubt They Make You Go Threw With The Whole Early Term Mess Especially If You Have Multiple Lines.

    Has there been any indication what they are going to do if someone fails a credit check? Because I used the SS# trick to get prepaid for my IPhone and am wondering if maybe they will allow people who had prepaid accounts keep them because tehy "failed" the credit check before.

    The Most Important Question Should Be When Will T-Mobile Be Launching 3G Service.

    T-Mobile 3G won't work with iPhone 3G. Different frequencies. Sorry bud.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Till then all of you can go back and forth with speculation, but common sense dictates otherwise...
    Just because you "might" succeed in buying without a contract doesn't mean that thats not the policy. The policy will be to sign up right then and there for the 2yr contract (including Apple stores). I'm sure some knucklehead not following policy, or perhaps your friend who works at Apple, or maybe even a poorly trained rep will sell without contract.

    My head is going to explode reading this and the ill-informed who continue to say that they can just buy one and go unlock it just like the last one.

    So from EDGE to 3G, you're looking at an extra $10 for the new 3G package.

    So at a minimum, it's going to be around $80 a month.
    i have the basic 450 min plan and it does not have unltd nights and weekend mins, just 5000

    ok just to get this out here as the posts are being posted faster then i can refresh and read all of them, but i came to AT&T when i bought my iPhone... i was with T-Mobile, (which sucked, and i thought it was the greatest thing on the face of the earth) till i got on AT&T and gained service in 75% more places then i did with T-Mobile... why would it be such a bad thing to switch to AT&T anyway? i mean if you want this device why not buy it and keep it with the provider it was built for?

    that is true... he does have a point... so you would be buying this device and going through all the trouble to have a iPhone 3G that will be running on T-Mo's slow *** edge network anyway... what would be the point??

    dont know if this source is a good 1 or not but hoping some of you guys would
    New Details on iPhone 3G Data Plans | MacSpark


    it basically says:
    Also interesting is the “GPS-enabled YELLOWPAGES.COM mobile application” which we didn’t see today from Apple. Take a look at the PDF & webcast of the AT&T conference call here.

    Update: It looks like current customers will continue paying the standard $20/month. “All iPhone 2G users will be grandfathered and won’t be required to pay more per month for as long as they choose to use the service, including past the end of their contract.”
