Yesterday, found a space gray iPhone 5s 64GB at my local AT&T Store via online in-store availability at their website.

When I was checking out, I was expecting to pay the full retail (device only, off contract) of $850 and no sales tax since I'm located in Portland. The guy helping me tells me it's $740. I ask him if this is the retail price and he tells me that there is a glitch in AT&T systems for all 5s off contract, device only prices. The guy was super friendly, I added the AppleCare+ and helped him get that commission! :cool:

Might be just Oregon, but worth giving a shot if you're buying the iPhone 5s off-contract! Plenty of space gray and silver models at most AT&T stores.

Good luck!

Interesting. At a loss to AT&T but a gain to customers all over who they have successfully gouged for years. :)

ATT Rep here, not a glitch. All phones ring out at NEXT pricing. We are supposed to mark up the cost of the phone when someone buys at full retail.

I already bought two at full retail and it still shows at $540 (16gb) and $740 (64gb). Guess two of my local stores don't care. :D

It is not grave digging, that would be a thread older than a year. Anyways, back on topic, I believe there are some people here reporting success with AT&T Next pricing scheme.
