    I bought a factory unlocked 4S and need to sign up for a contract through ATT.

    If I buy an iphone from ATT with contract, can I switch the sim card to the unlocked and sell the subsidized phone? Will there be any problems with my phone or the buyer's? Does ATT need to be informed I am using a different phone?

    You don't "have" to sign up for a contract. You can activate service with your unlocked device on AT&T with a no-commit month to month agreement.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Yes, you can do that and you will be fine.
    You wont need to inform AT&T, you can just switch your sim.

    My bad, I was in a hurry and didn't mean to imply having to have a contract. I would like to get my hands on a subsidized phone to help offset the cost of the factory unlocked unit.

    Thank you!
