    I go to apple's site and they just funnel me to ATT or Verizon. I want to pay full price for an ip4, so as to avoid extending my ATT contract another 2 years.

    I don't want unlocked, because I'll be using it on ATT.

    if you dont care about unlock, you can buy iphone 4 for full price 599/699 without contract from AT&T. i think you can only do this by going to an at&t store and prove that you are already an at&t costumer.

    That's not much less that we pay for a factory unlocked phone up here from the Apple stores. I'm guessing OP is not in Canada, though.

    What? In Canada, iPhones bought directly from Apple are factory unlocked. We do not have AT&T here.

    Can't you get it at the Apple store? I always thought they sold them for the full price for people that didn't wanna sign up with any other company

    Not unlocked, no. Plenty of people drive into canada or mexico to get an unlocked phone. I may do it when 5 comes out.

    The OP wanted a contract-free iPhone, locked to ATT right? Any brick and mortar Apple Store will provide that. Plus ATT stores I guess.
