AT&T to Sell Contractless iPhones for $400 Premium
AT&T has confirmed that it will begin selling the Apple iPhone to existing AT&T customers for $599 and $699 (8GB and 16GB, respectively) starting March 26 with no contract requirement.
This isn't new
I don't know if everyone doesn't already know this you can purchase an iPhone 3G from the Apple Store new without a contract for $499 (8G) $599(16G). Period my friend didn't tell me this or any of lame made up stuff people say. I personal did it not more then 2 weeks ago for my little brother. Here is the number the Indianapolis Apple store fill free to call 317 574 8601
Now if you can't get to an Apple Store there are walmart and best buy everywhere. I don't know if Best Buy sells them out right but Walmart will for $550(8G) or $650 (16) agai...
you can still think that $150 for unlimited is "nice" if you want tho...
Why would it be?
Then there's the $30 data plan AT&T charges, which (it was rumored) at least a small portion of which went to Apple for each customer. That's a lot of cash.
There may be a loosening of AT&T's terms, but the Apple/AT&T alliance is around for at least a few more years.
if you're referring to prepaid, they havent announced any prepaid options for the iphone 3G still.
Yes I am a hater.
The ONLY reason to actually do this.....
Early Upgrade(customers already in 2 yrs)
However, you can only purchase 1 2yr price and 1 early upgrade during the 2 year period. This price is for people who absolutely have to have an iPhone after breaking 2 others in a 2 year span.
It is STILL cheaper to add a line and cancel to pay the ETF. This option is for people who want to keep their same number and purchase a phone. That's it. I honestly don't see people buying it at this price very often, for good reason.
u got to do something or anything to sell the inventory. haha
I don't see the point in this.
Cheaper to pay ETF?
Also, this is just going to cause a headache for them. How can they justify that a 2yr agreement is worth a $400 subsidy?
I do not see the point in this.
