So, since we are already allowed to buy contract-free iPhones from AT&T, for the next iPhone i wanted to buy an iphone contract free. It avoids the hassle of getting my parents to sign a contract (i'm 17 and use gophone), and i have extra $ from mowing lawns and fixing computers. For those of you who have done this or have tried to do this in the past, would it be possible to pre-order an iPhone, but at full retail value (~$599 or $699)? What stores can you and can't you do this at? Can i do this at 17 since i won't be signing a contract?
