I dont know if anyone has said anything about this, but... Because apple/att allow you to purchase the iPhone at any time, as long as you sign a new 2 year contract... here is what you do. Find a friend who is going to get the phone anyways. Have him buy it, then a week later, go in to buy an other one saying that you dropped it down some stares, and while it works great, you just want to buy a non scuffed up one. You need to sign on again at 2 years... but hey you are extending it by 2 weeks... who cares Now he has 2. Buy it from him. Or you could do this and sell it on ebay for huge profit when people hack them.
