I want an iPhone 3GS but don't want to sign a contract w/ AT&T. I'm OK paying the $500 or so for it - just don't want to have AT&T as my carrier. I spent some time poking around different sites & forums to find out how I can buy and unsubsidized iPhone (in the US). 1) Can I really go to an Apple store and just buy one? I know this sounds like a stupid question but seriously, it doesn't seem like I can buy one without a contract w/ AT&T (and without having to pay at least $1K) 1a) If it's as simple as going to an Apple store, anyone have an insight as to why doesn't Apple just offer this as an option "B" online (option "A" being iPhone w/ AT&T contract)?
