    There are a number of places that sell the iPhone, however not many of them have them in stock for walk-in patrons. The other issue you face is that all iPhones sold in the US are carrier locked to AT&T, no matter how much you pay for it. Right now if you were to purchase an iPhone without a subsidy, it is $599 for the 16BG and $699 for the 32GB. The only place however I believe you can buy one without having to activate the AT&T contract is an Apple store.

    Best to buy one in Europe at one of the places that sells unlocked phones.

    Or you can just buy that iPhone 4 in USA that is locked in ATT and than jb and unlock (you'll be able to do this unless your phone has 4.0.2)

    Check eBay, as they probably have more than a few iP4 unlocked by now.

    As the other posters said, unless you JB, your screwed as USA iPhones are locket to AT&T. If you travel to Europe (UK, France etc) most countries there sell unlocked iPhones from Apple Stores. Or if you're near the north of the US, go to Canada to buy an unlocked one I think.

    Your best bet if you want a contract free iphone is buy one up here in Canada since they are unlocked when bought at full price.

    Plus, you need a social security number to get an AT&T line. Sorry, Zangief
