    How are people on Ebay selling these without any contracts? I know you can cancel then pay the ETF, but then if you do that within the first 30 days you have to take it back and it hasn't even been a week! Any have any good educated guess or actually know?

    The units may be stolen -- wouldn't put it past anyone out there.

    Also, I know that you could buy the iPhone without a service contract for a higher price.

    what people are doing in the UK is:
    walk into O2/CPW shop
    Sign up to £35 per month contract & pay £99 for iphone 3g
    Register phone & sim card
    Restore iphone to factory default
    Keep sim
    Sell iphone for £450+
    18 months contract costs £630 + £99 for iphone
    Put sim in other phone contract has now only cost £279 = £15.50 per month

    personally i'd prefer to keep the iphone :confused:

    There was an 3G iPhone from Italy being sold on EBay for over $1,100 because in Italy all mobile phones must be sold unlocked and without a carrier.
