buy 10 iPhone 3g, return 5 and cancel AT&T w/ in 3 days?
I have theory that is to open a new contract, buy 5 iPhone 3g at $199 and $299, then go to another and buy 5 iPhone 3g at $399 and $499. After all that, come back to apple the next day and return 5 iPhone 3g and ask to cancel At&t. All that should done within 3 days so that you dontb have to pay ETF or first month bill.
Do you think this is possible? If we can return the 5 iPhone 3g that we bought at $399 and $499, and cancel AT&T, this mean we can keep the first 5 that we bought for $199 & $299. That's cheap! What do you all think? Have anyone try this?
Yes, AT&T is very dumb and will let you do that.
Try this also:
- Find a iron chest
- Find some rope
- Go to AT&T store, buy 10 iPhones
- Write a letter to your family
- Put all iPhones in a red box
- Call AT&T and cancel, tell them you will return the phones monday
- Put your Letter over the red box
- Find a river
- Tie the iron chest with one end of the rope
- Tie both your feet with the other end of the rope
- Jump in river
do u have to be rude? Are u 3 yrs old?
No excuse for rudeness agreed - but its a pretty dumb suggestion and of course AT&T aren't gonna just say 'yeah - go for it'

If you return the ones with contracts, you get the contracts canceled and $200/$300 back.
If you return the no-commitment ones, there are no contracts to cancel, and you get $400/$500 back.
They're not going to cancel any contracts if the phone you're returning is a no-commitment one. They're not going to give you back $400/$500 for the $200/$300 phones either.
You're also completely ignoring the fact that they check each returned phone's serial number.

thanks for all the input
He still is getting them with a commitment as an 'early upgrade' (the no-commitment price is $499/599 and isn't available yet).

So, it's really just the same as buying the 3G phone(s) and attempting to cancel before the 30 days; only porting out has been proven to be marginally successful in forcing ETFs during the 30-day window.
I seriously doubt AT&T, Apple, or BestBuy will let anyone buy additional 3Gs a couple days after the initial 3G purchases (and account activation) though.
