    Everybody pre-ordering the six is doing so contractually, unless your t-mob.
    How long does it usually take apple to sell the unlocks. #hatecontracts

    I don't know about AT&T but the new Edge plan under Verizon isn't a contract and you can buy a phone not using the Edge plan if you want with Verizon. It makes sense financially to do so though (0% APR).

    Not everybody. Apple was only selling the unlocked phones through the Apple store here in Canada.

    The NEXT plan is only a financing plan, not a contract renewal. Right?

    I have always bought the phone up front. No issues, I can choose who I want to have my contract with, and I've always been able to resale without a problem. I keep my phone in an otterbox because of my work environment, and it keeps it looking like the day I bought it.

    There is another thing you have not realized! There are already quite a few threads on "unlocked" iPhone 6/6+.

    Oh yeah: #redundant-thread ;)

    I think with AT&T the ETF is $325 minus $10 per month of contract completed. Add the cost of the phone and the activation fee, possibly the first month of service.

    With AT&T NEXT, nothing. You're paying off the phone over time but it's not a contract you're stuck in. If you pay it off, you've paid it off.

    I had a friend buy a unlocked att through the apple store app because he wasn't eligible for next or upgrade and it was offered off of contract to him.

    FTFY. Us Europeans get them unlocked. I don't think they even sell locked iPhones here at all anymore.
