This is kind of an urgent question. I am returning to America next week on vacation and was planning on picking up a couple of iPhone 3GS systems...one for me, one for a friend over here. I was hoping to follow this model of doing things...for a total of $580 for one for me, and $480 for one for her. I just spoke with an Apple Sales Representative on the phone, and she told me that rates are different these days, when I explained my hope to use this procedure. She said it'd be $499 for the 8GB 3G, then $599 and $699 respectively for the 3GS units. That's over $100 extra dollars than what either of us were planning on paying for these phones. So...can you call ******** on this sales rep? Am I missing something here? I've pored over AT&T's wireless contract and I can only find the standard $175 ETF mentioned after the first 30 days, and no mention of any other penalties or returns. Any help, links, advice, etc, is appreciated.
