    Default Is it true that a Forigner can not buy an iPhone with this new contract business

    Hi guys.

    I came a cross a thread in the past (can no longer find it) claming something to the effect that since 1.1.1, AT&T or Apple will force you to sign some stupid contract prohibiting buyer from unlocking iPhone. Is this true? If so anyway out of this?

    Can a Forigner (Canadian) still buy one from a store without any questions? Thanks.

    I am going Monday October 16 and I hope to hear some good news about this.

    To sum it up (please someone correct me if I'm wrong):

    1. If you're at ATT, most likely, they will make you sign up for a phone plan on the spot.

    2. So buy it at Apple. If you're just buying 1 or 2, they're not going to make you sign anything. It's when you buy more than that (limit depends on each store) that they want you to sign a contract saying you will not re-sell the phone.

    Yes, buy directly from Apple store. I bought 3 yesterday. No question asked. I did ask about the AT&T family plan before I ask to buy 3 units.
