    Default [iPhone 3G] Unlocking not worth the trouble !?

    According to the Baltimore Sun newspaper ATT won't let you out of your contract with them for the new iphone until you return it to the store!

    If this is true than it may dry up the supply for unlocked 3G iphones.

    Old iPhone, bought without a contract and no subsidy. New iPhone only available on contract with subsidy. The only difference between this and any other phone that I can see is the lack of a contract free option direct from the manfacturer, blame Apple for that one.

    ya i can see that being the case.. however if thats the case att/apple or any other provider that will provide the iphone should let u unlock it.. for people that travel a lot.. if im stuck on a 2/3 year term.. whats the difference to them if i have my phone unlocked or not they r still getting their payments...i know its probabaly because of roaming fees.. but that is just greedy

    Since 3G iPhone is not available to everyone, crime on stealing 3G iPhone will begin and there would be a point when Apple/ATT will have legal law suits to handle......Few years back we had problems with iPods crime, now this is be really serious....

    The reports I have read say that if you try to cancel your AT&T contract within 30 days, you have to return the phone. But if you want to cancel your AT&T contract after 30 days, then you can pay the early termination fee and keep the phone.

    What this means, as a practical matter, is that you should add the $200 early termination fee as well as one month's AT&T contract charges to the subsidized price of your 3G iPhone to determine your "unsubsidized" cost.

    Apple likes publicity and we all know that Good or Bad publicity and media coverage is advantage to the company. Look like Apple fans and haters both are taking a lot about 3G:iphone::iphone:
