    hi there,

    i am looking to buy an iphone 3g, however i do not use at&t i use t-mobile. what would be the cheapest way to purchase an iphone 3g? i have a turbosim so all i need is the phone. can i go to the apple store and sign up for a 2 year plan with at&t and then cancel? what do you recommend i do?

    thanks so much,

    If buying the phone, paying the activation fee, paying for two months of service, then canceling the contract with ETF is your style, buy it in the store. Otherwise, go to ebay or craigslist.

    how are people on ebay selling them in the sealed box never been opened?

    does apple and att not make you open the phone up and activate it before you leave?

    please let me know.
