    so i went ahead and upgraded my iphone 3gs (which i've had for 2 months) to an iphone 4 (which i wanna unlock and give to someone as a gift). i payed $400 non-commitment on the condition that i renew my 2 year contract.
    what if i don't activate my iphone 4 by phoning AT&T, but instead insert a cut sim, jailbreak and unlock through wireless (i'm not sure that it's possible, but let's pretend it is), and use the iphone 4 without any restrictions?? will that be a violation to my contract (in this case i wouldn't have renewed my 2 year contract), and how will they know that i didn't activate it....
    thanks

    You can do whatever you want with it, but you still need to pay the bill.

    AT&T doesn't care, as you will be paying for it anyway over the two year period of your contract.

    Wether u activate, use it or throw it out the window.
    You already renewed your 2 year contract with AT&T.
    It has nothing to do with activating the sim inside the i4.

    How is it that you paid the non-commitment price if you had to renew your contract? Non-commitment means you don't have to renew or extend your contract.

    This wasn't a non commitment price. This sounds like a "wasn't eligible for an upgrade so paid the "full" price/early upgrade price with a 2 year contract. It's not the full $600 but a reduced price for those who wish to buy the iphone 4 prior to be upgrade eligible.

    He now has a contract and if canceled they will bill you for the new $350 ETF so your into the iphone for $750, not the best idea.

    Yes, the $400 is not the full price. Its the early upgrade price that still ties you up to a 2 year agreement with AT&T.
    The full no contract price would be $599 and $699 for the 32GB.
