I'm getting one from Verizon for full price and then selling off my 4S. Scheduled for delivery on the 19th, I had the chance to get it on the 7th but I hesitated to buy at full price.

From what it seems, there's really no other alternative if you don't have access to upgrades.

Even though it might be a pain, if it were me (needing a contract free phone) I'd get a subsidy one for $200, and pay the $325 ETF.

You also need to pay the first month of service, I believe.. or you can only cancel after a certain amount of time has passed.

If you have a phone trade in Best Buy gives the best trade in value. I got $317.25 for my 4S and as my contract wasn't up, paid $200 for the new 32 with a case.

You might also check Radio Shack. They were out of stock in store, but I was able to get one in 3 days by ordering in store through their Direct2U program.

I bought mine off contract for $649 (VZW).
