    Report back if you purchased with no commit price from Apple. When ordering from Apple online there's a note 2-yr commitment required. I thought full price does not required 2-yr sign up.

    I paid the full 699+tax price for my 32GB black, which I got at the Salt Lake City Apple Store at the Gateway.

    Did it extend your contract?

    Doubt he or she did. If they did, the price would have been 199 or 299.

    I bought the 16GB for $599, however my wife's phone was $199.

    After selling our 3Gs, we only paid $175 each in the end.

    I got mine in Houston

    I got my 16 gb iPhone4 at the $599.00 non-commitment price at the Houston Apple Store in Willobrook Mall
    Got there yesterday and they officially kicked everyone off at 2 pm and said nobody could be on mall premesis until 5 am
    got a hotel, 1 block away, showed up at 3 am to be on the safe side.
    well i guess throughout the day and night other people were also told to come back at 5, cuz I swear when i drove up, completely clueless it was like monkey see monkey do
    as i drove up to check up on the mall a line of 40 cars followed ....cars coming out of neighboring chik fill a or some other lil' fast food joint
    and I SWEAR two young Asian dudes popped out of the bushes NO LIE
    well security came in his lil' ford explorer w/ flashing yellow lights and sent everyone off premesis
    so fastforward 4:30am mall has two entrances a MAD dash by all cars raid both doors simultaneously- again two asian plus one young girl come out the bushes, my wife jumps out 6 th person in line
    1100 people total on both doors 6 am doors open
    b4 that security says you run to apple you will be kicked out and cant come back for your phone TODAY. so both doors are open at exact same time
    (they litterally synced it through walkie talkies)
    well are north door had 1 security guard and he held open the door
    the south door had 3 security guys and one escorted them
    so almost everyone from the north door got to Apple 1st ( a little jogging like those girls you see fast walking at the park was involved)
    they COMPLAINED ; nobody listened, I was 7th in line
    I lost a spot to a starbucks chick- who was already 20 yards away from Apple- she was actually working cuz starbucks was catering the event
    15 minutes later I walk out with the world's hottest summer need to have gadget at a non commit price
    NOW how do i make calls with it?????/
    Nice phone activated it with ny ipad's microsim but I still have not made 1 call.:D

    I got there around 3am too and was kicked out and came back around 4:30 when all the cars were lined up on the street ready to pull a fast and the furious move. i forgot to turn my lights off on my truck and had to run back and turn them off. by that time i was like 70th in line. when we got inside i was like #15 in the reserved line, that was awesome.

    Nope, you're wrong. "early upgrade" prices of 399/499 also extend the contract by two years, and even the no-commit price has the "requires a 2 year contract" footnote attached to it.

    If I'm wrong and you're right, then why did you ask the question in the first place?

    I purchased a 16GB iphone 4 thru AT&T for the full $599 price and my contract didnt get extended.
    Still ready for a full subsidy in February 2011.

    No, it did not. This was explained to me by my Apple representative in the store - the "no commitment" price does not extend your contract. When they are entering your data, if they slide the "full price?" slider to "yes," it brings them into a whole separate system. I know, because he forgot to slide it the first tine, and almost signed me up for the 499 price with a 2-year commitment.

    My commitment expires in February from my 3GS upgrade last year.

    It said on the apple site that orders initiated online (even full retail) would require a 2 yr extension. It also said to visit a retail store to purchase full retail with no commitment. I saw this when doing my pre-order on the apple site..needless to say I went to ATT for my pre-order which allowed me to order full retail with no commitment.

    I didn't even have the option to extend my contract. If I wanted the phone I would have had to pay $599. Needless to say, I did not do it :).

    Because you weren't even approaching answering the right question. The question was about the paradoxical choice of terms advertised on Apple's site saying the "no commitment" price "requires a 2 year contract with AT&T". I wanted to see if people who had actually purchased the phone at the no-committment price had their contracts extended or not since that would clear up the confusion.

    Thanks for clearing it up.

    Wrong about what? Do you know how to read?

    I guess that's the kind of response one makes when they know they're completely wrong and just don't want to admit it, even on an anonymous internet forum? Kinda sad.
