ok. So apple no longer gets a cut from revenue from ATT. So here's what should happen: You walk into an Apple store or ATT store, pay 400 for the iPhone and you can stick any sim card into it, ATT, tmobile or anything with no issue. Now its up to you to decide, do you wanna guarantee ATT, you'll be with them for 2 years in return for 200 bucks. You sign a contract and get your money, your phone is still unlocked if you go abroad. This is how it should be done!!
