The iPhone is Now Available Contract Free From the Apple Store

The iPhone is Now Available Contract Free From the Apple Store

Apple is now selling the iPhone without an AT&T contract or ID at any Apple Store in the United States.

Gizmodo received a copy of the internal documentation that reads, "Effective immediately, customers purchasing iPhone as device only at full price are no longer required to have an AT&T account or provide a form of ID. Device only full price iPhone slaes are limited to one per person per day."

The price is $499 for the iPhone 3G 8GB, $599 for the iPhone 3GS 16GB, and $699 for the 32GB model.

Of course, these devices will be sold with the latest baseband which is not yet unlockable; however, you can use RedSn0w to perform a tethered jailbreak.

Hello Everybody, I read this thread this morning and realize that it's not an amazing new as it looks like. There is not such a bargain on Apple Store Site. In fact, I wrote an email to Jesus Diaz @ Gismodo.com site asking for more details about it because there is not any official fact about it on Apple.com Below you can find my email to Jesus Diaz. Hello Jesus, I wonder where did you get this information from. I mean, I went to Apple Online Store and I did not found such an option to buy an iPhone without AT&T Contract. If its possible to get it on an alternative way without a contract !!! Will it be only an option to those who only wants their iPhones for a PrePaid or Pay on the Go Account. Can you clarify this info or facts please. It doesn't worth if iPhone still locked or attached to a single carrier. Thanks, ROGELIO ENRIQUE SANCHEZ INDOMIE EU - Gerente Tel. Fijo: +57 5 361-4731 Tel.

This could mean only 2 things. 1-new iPhone coming and they need to get rid of stock. 2-sales are going down and they need to push a "new" marketing tool. either 1 or 2 the fact seems as iPhone sales are slowing down.

No, you cant use any SIM, they are still locked to AT&T. It just means you dont have to pay for the contract. Yes, you can jailbreak it, but jailbreak and unlock are different things. If you want an iPhone on a different carrier, buy an old one.
