    Question In Desperate Need Of A Few Simple Answers

    Before I start, I will like to thank all in advance for any insight that may be given. Thank you all!

    Here’s the rundown. I am currently under a 2 year contract with Nextel and it’s finally coming to an end (Dec. ’07). I’ve pretty much made up my mind that an iPhone would be a nice upgrade from the outdated i930 that I’ve tugged around for nearly 2 years. Being that I already have a DAP, I thought it would be a good idea to just snag a 4gig iPhone now as I learn they’re not going to be any more produced.

    Now here goes my questions for you guys…
    If I were to go out and purchase a 4gig, is there a way I can activate the device without signing a contract with AT&T (DVDJon method ??) ..Then as my current Nextel contract comes to a close, finally sign up with AT&T??

    Once again, thank you for any help at all and if what I’ve just wrote is unclear, feel free to ask questions and I’ll try my best to clarify.

    You just need to use the SEARCH function of the forum and you get all the answers you're looking for. First use SEARCH, THEN ask. Thanks.

    As a little hint: activating and unlocking the iPhone is pretty easy if you have basic computer skills. Again, check the forums and use the SEARCH function.

    Another hint: the 4GB iPhone won't cut it. Get the 8GB version or wait for the upcoming 16GB version. If money is an issue, get at least the 8GB version.
    One iTunes movie has a file size of around 1 GB, one full TV show has a file size of around 500 MB, a music video file has a file size of around 50 MB, etc. The more space you have on your flash memory, the better.

    Also don't forget that Apple started to "lock" the usage of their new iTunes devices to iTunes only, you can't (officially) use any other method to put media stuff on the new portable devices. Hacks are developped but it may be more difficult and complicated than software unlocking the iPhone.

    Remember to get a free phone and port your number when you sign up AT&T.

    Then buy an iphone from Apple and activate it with iBrickr.

    Depends what you want to use the iphone for ... I use it primarily for calendar, wifi internet access, and as an ipod - I am happy with a couple of hundred songs on the iphone - when I get bored with 'em - I just load another couple of hundred songs. I don't need thousands and thousands of songs on my iphone - or watch videos and TV shows on the iphone... And so I'm quite happy with my recent purchase of the 4gig version - that I got for a nice discount.

    Now, if I do ever feel that I must have a huge amount of space for all kinds of stuff --- I think I'll go for the ipod classic 160 gigs! But I figure I'll be happy with 4gigs for a couple of years atleast --- and by then something way cooler will be out.

    In any case - responding to teamshowoff --- the answer is Yes --- you can activate and deactivate using independence - and/or restore the iphone using itunes --- all pretty much painless (at this time) --- things may change in the near or far future... only Jobs knows.
