As the title says: When can I go to an Apple store and purchase an ATT phone without contract? I'm assuming an ATT phone without contract will cost less than an Unlocked phone. Long story: I am still under contract. If I purchase the 4S I would need to pay $250 on top of the contracted price. To me, it would make more sense to buy one without contract, and sell mine to my friend. That way, my contract is not renewed (Yeah, I'm waiting for a new one next year) and I pay about the same as a contracted one. for example: $300 for 32 GB +$250 for fees =$550 out of pocket, plus two year contract. or $700 for 32 GB (I'm guessing this is the price for no contract) -$300 (selling my 4) =$400 out of pocket, AND NO CONTRACT. so... Any ideas when I'll be able to pick one up? (assuming it's in stock). Thanks! oh, and no, pre-orders wouldn't allow me to buy one without contract.
