Ok, so I'm still hoping that I'll be able to get my hands on an iPhone without having to sign up for Cingular. Now my question is this, and hopefully there are some Cingular employees who can help me out here: If I have a friend thats due a phone upgrade, could he in theory, upgrade to an iPhone and sell it to me? Of course I'm hoping someone will be able to unlock it and I know that my friend will have to sign another 2 year agreement but thats besides the point, I'm just wondering if this would work. I actually did this a while back for my Treo 650, my friend got an upgrade and I was able to get the Treo for $140 when everyone else was selling them for $300. I just got the phone unlocked and now use it with Tmobile.
