    Default No commitment Iphone 4

    I need first hand experiences, for hearsay I already read 100's of posts elsewhere.

    AT&T offers a 32GB Iphone 4 for $699 with no commitments, I want to know:

    1) what a non USA citizen needs to do to get one of these.

    or

    2) How an actual AT&T customer get an extra phone for me using this option and how fast he can cancel the contract. Is there any deposit involved?

    Here is AT&T official statement: http://www.att.com/Common/about_us/f..._sheet_ip4.pdf

    Thanks!

    My opinion.
    Buy officially unlocked, contract free from Canada instead.

    Much less hassle.

    To answer some of your questions re AT&T. The $699 iPhone 4 is contract free - but to use it with anyone but AT&T you need a jailbreak and unofficial unlock.

    Many countries will offer it "factory unlocked" (means plug to iTunes to unlock) for a few extra bucks. From my personal experience: it's worth the extra money.

    Canada, NZ, Australia, France, Italy and a handful of places sell them unlocked. Soon, I hope, the only (ridiculous) place that keep this stupid practice will be the US.

    As pointed many times before over the last 3 years, the fault is at the core of business model that Apple adopted at the early stages of its "cell phone manufacturer incarnation". They hired a "well known consulting firm" to help them with the business model and it was based on the "traditional US CDMA business model" where people always commit to 1 or 2 years contract, phones are "carrier exclusive" (CMDA does not need carrier lock as they have no SIM Card), among other bad decisions.

    But on a pure business point of view, they are extremely successful, so who are we to disagree.... oh well....

    If a large enough number of US citizens made it clear to congress how exploitative, fragmented and lacking proper competition the USA cellphone carriers are. Then maybe congress might do something about it. Does not help to complain to anyone else.

    Here in the UK only Apple are currently taking pre-orders I think. They sell the phone totally unlocked and not tied to any agreements. You cannot buy it on a contract from the Apple Store website (but you can in-store I've heard)
    I ordered the Black 16GB version for 499 inc. 70ish tax. (Around $739.94)

    On launch day you can buy the iPhone 4 from any of the major carriers here in the UK since they all have agreements with Apple (apart from "3" but I don't think the iPhone works on their network anywho). Most have similar deals and the unit price is cheaper as the price of the monthly contract increases.
    All carriers have followed AT&T in stopping unlimited data.

    I'm so glad it's officially unlocked; the whole non-official unlocking situation sometimes gets real confusing with blobs and baseband's

    If I helped please give a thumbs up , Thanks (Leave your username and I'll try to give you a thumbs up back)
