    According to the home page, there is gonna be a discounted 3GS for like $97 from Walmart.

    Is there a way I can buy it no contract online? Im guessing its gonna be roughly 97+175+35 bucks right?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You cant buy it with no contract.
    You will have to go under contract and then cancell after 30 days so it might be a little more than your guess.

    Did you not read the full article?

    You CAN buy it without a contract, but it will cost you $599. iPhones aren't THAT cheap.

    The 30 days thing is if you buy it with a contract, wait 1 month and pay the ETF as well as the month's service. If you cancel it before 1 month you have to give the phone back.

    But be careful, AT&T is going to up their ETF to $325 on June 1st. So it could cost you 97+325+70 = over $500.

    So no, you can't buy an iPhone w/o a contract for just $97
