Yes, you are, and yes, it can.

Interesting... how does that work? As in, how does the person buying it get set up with AT&T? (or did you mean they have to hack it?)

You should be able to restore it to factory settings and the buyer could hook it up to itunes and set it up with at&t. How much are you selling it for? How many Gigs? Could you jut not afford the at&t bill?

I got close to that (approx. $310, if I remember correctly, before shipping on ebay....) for my old little 4gig. Just lucky I suppose.

I too got rid of it due to at&t service - or lack thereof. I really loved the phone and basically using it replaced my other computers in total for basic computing with that convenient little baby. I do miss it in those terms. Sad that I just couldn't justify keeping it due to the carrier! I would, in fact, pick up another if I could legally use another carrier.... Hear that, Apple?

Good luck with your sale, in any case. And... to hijack the thread...... how does the iPod Touch compare to the iPhone if I just wanted the aforementioned functionality in a similarly convenient package?

Why not just stop the service,get some other pone and still enjoy the rest of the iPhone?

Because for the $310 in opportunity cost the iphone was costing me by holding onto it, I could get a phone w/decent service and still use my old computers until I can get a little extra cash to get (maybe) a touch with more storage. Having a 4gig iPhone with the aforementioned lost opportunity costs and not use the phone just seemed wasteful.
