    hi everybody.
    i am going to go to usa for a conference next week.
    when turning back to my country i want to buy a iphone from US.

    so;
    can i buy i iphone 3gs or iphone 4 from apple store or best buy or at&t shop without contracted?

    it is not important iphone will be locked or cant use with other providers. i want to just buy a iphone and come back.

    what will the price of a iphone 3gs 16 gb and iphone 4 16 gb ?

    i want to buy from a store. any opinions?

    Not apple or ATT, unless you have service with ATT; there is no way to get one from them at full price. Try Craigslist

    Even if they did sell you a full price iPhone, it will be locked to AT&T.

    Come here to Canada and pay full price to Apple and it will be unlocked and usable on any carrier ;)
