Ok I was thinking about this...if the phone is going to cost $500-$600 because there probably wont be any rebates, then whats to stop people from getting an iPhone, signing a contract and then cancelling the contract shortly there after? Usually the only thing that stops you from doing this is that the phone you get with your new plan has rebates to make it super cheap, but you have to stay with that carrier for at least a little while to receive the rebate check (if you receive the rebate check at all). So your probably asking why I'd want to get the iphone and then cancel the AT&T service so I can't use the phone capability. Well I'm hoping (fingers crossed) that someone will be able to unlock the iPhone so I dont have to leave Tmobile and hopefully the iPhone will function properly (Yes I know, minus VisualVoice mail). I'm also sure that some people will just buy the iPhone so they can sell it on ebay and double their money. My Questions is, do you think it will be this easy to get an iPhone without having to stay attached to AT&T? I haven't signed up with a carrier in about 7 years so I'm not too familer with the process anymore.
