    no-commitment price $699?

    Appleinsider is showing that the no-commitment price for the iPhone 4 is $699.

    I've bought each generation iPhone on launch day but my AT&T account page seems to indicate that I must pay the $699 no-commit price:

    As a valued AT&T customer, you may be eligible for an upgrade on this line, with no-commit equipment pricing and without signing a 2-year commitment. Click 'Upgrade Eligibility' to view your upgrade options.

    I'm wondering why that might be, after purchasing each iPhone for the last three years on launch day. Anyone else in the same boat?

    $699 is for the 32GB model. The 16GB is $599. Note that Nexus One with 4GB SD card is $529. So imo, although they are pricey, it's inline with the competitors.

    Can someone post a link to the un-subsidized price for the iPhone 4? I really don't want a contract :D

    So when it's out can you go to an Apple store and buy it with no commitment for $599?

    Try doing this: Dial "*639#" It will text you what your upgrade eligibility is for the phone.

    Just did. This is what I got back:

    You may select equipment at our full retail pricing. An upgrade may be available on 02/20/2011.

    seems strange that I'm in the $699 camp

    Thanks for this. So much easier than navigating Atat's website.

    Well, that won't apply to anybody that wants to get the iPhone 4 now would it as if you want the iPhone 4 to be subsidized, you have to have a new contract, thus the new ETF. ;)

    Those are no-contract price. Early upgrade price, just subtract $200.

    My point was you could terminate for $175 then start a new account and get the iPhone 4 for $299 instead of the no commitment price of $599.

    And I think the upgrade price with a contract is $399.

    It would still apply because there are those that want to cancel their old line, pay the ETF, and buy the new phone at a subsidized price of 199/299 by adding a new line

    Anyone know if a deposit is required if you pay the no contract price? Last time I checked I had to pay a $250 deposit since I have no credit history, so I ended up not buyin' one. If a no contract price doesn't require any deposit, I'm game. Thanks in advance.

    Steep stuff indeed.... I'll wait out my contract and buy the next or later incarnation. The video feature really is awesome, though.
