    I will be purchasing the full price phone from Apple for the first time. Can someone fill me in on the process to get this phone to replace my existing iPhone on my at&t plan without changing any plan details?

    Perhaps is easier than I'm thinking, but any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Yes indeed, I missed that.

    Does at&t allow a way to pay the balance of the phone off to remove the monthly installment payment?

    I've read their policy and it looks like they allow full device payoff any time. However, you have to wait at least 2 months before you can pay off the 12/18-month balance in order to do a Next 12/18 trade-in.

    And then can you request that the iPhone be unlocked after you pay it off?

    According to a chat I had with AT&T rep this morning, they will be offering full price pre orders tomorrow. Who knows if that is correct but.....

    I just talked to my Apple Store this morning. You can purchase a full priced AT&T phone (contract-free) from the Apple Store at launch, it just won't be "unlocked". I'm taking this route to keep my $15 per line plan, if I buy on contract that would change to $40 for 24 months, which ends up costing more than buying the phone for full retail price.

    It will not be on the Apple website. You have to purchase it in store.

    Any chance to do this via pre-order in person or do you have to do this on launch day?
