    It would help if we knew where you lived.

    All phones in the US are tied to ATT or Verizon. Other parts of the world you can buy an unlocked iPhone but you pay full price for that.

    Apple now sells the iPhone 4 unlocked here in the U.S. (GSM only), 16GB/$649 and 32GB/$749

    At $649, you're free to do what you want with your iPhone.

    i live in colorado springs. i am just wondering because i want to create an app, but i dont want to test it on my only ios device. its a 3g 32gb touch. i am a registered developer, but i dont want to run beta on my only device to see if my app will work with ios5. i want to get something like a 3gs with no contract, but obviously i cant do that. so any ideas where i can find another 32gb touch for SUPER cheap?

    Craigslist or Apple Refurbish.

    If you're going to just use it to develop apps, I would just get an 8GB one. My local Craigslist has a few for around $125-$150 (4th Generation).

    Apple Refurbs are $199 for an 8GB.
