    Someone correct me if I'm wrong - Apple/AT&T will not let customers buy new models off-contract for months after launch, right? If I remember correctly it wasn't until November or December that you could get an iPhone 5 off-contract.

    The reason I ask is I'm not eligible for an upgrade because I upgraded to a GS4 back in May to give Android the ole college try but I've since come to my senses and am switching back to an iPhone. If I can get a 5S off-contract on day one I will (space gray, even though I'd MUCH rather it still be slate gray). If it's going to be months before I can get one off contract, I'd rather go ahead and get a new 32gb black iPhone 5 at the new reduced price.

    Has anyone heard anything about that this time around?

    Correct. That has been the precedent for the last few years.

    Apple is currently taking preorders for unlocked/SIM-free full price 5c phones for delivery on 9/20.

    It's possible they may not do this for the 5s, but by doing it for the 5c perhaps they'll also allow it for the 5s.
