[Bloomber] AT&T to Offer Apple's IPhone Without Contract for $400 More - Page 2

post #11 of 31
T-Mobile..... ?

I just want to know If I Can buy it, Cancel my contract and get My iphone ready to be unlocked without being tied down to a losuy contract that is too expensive for me (and I couldn't even get t0 enjoy the seconds,since I don't live in the US)

The total cost for me if everything is perfect should be Phone ($299) + ETF ($175) and the first month of service ($70)

$544

Am I Right?

Well yeah, but that would not be what they want you to do. The $400 gets you a legitimate iPhone to use with other carriers.

After I read this I read farther down to find out why...and damn...I didn't know that.

So....you have to do some sort of software/hack unlock to use it with another carrier? I'm going to have to go look how the other companies work...I thought they all used SIM cards lol!

Right from the article.

Quote:
An unlocked iPhone can run on T-Mobile USA Inc.'s network in the U.S. and on international networks that use the global system for mobile communications. The phone won't work on the networks of Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel Corp. because they use incompatible technology.
Quote:
A version of the phone with additional storage will cost $299 with a contract for eligible customers and $699 without one, AT&T said. AT&T subscribers who already are under a contract and aren't yet eligible for the discount can buy the iPhone for $399 or $499.

I know that, and hell I've had like 3 of the previous iPhones.

The iPhone only runs on GSM networks.

To unlock the 1/2G iPhones, use Ziphone (google it)

But I'm interested on buying the new ones, but hell $700 plus tax for a friggin phone is damn expensive.

You need to wait for people to hack the phone again.
