    I want to reserve an iphone later tonight, but I just sign the contract early this year. Because apple simply does not offer buying off contract or reserve off contract iphone at the moment, i still able buy it with my line for off contract price $649(after check eligibility)

    my concern is, will att renew my contract even i do not get any discount from them?


    sorry folks , might be a little bit confusing. it would be simple that i just buy one at apple store, but most of them are out of stock, and reserve one online would be great

    No. Hence the no commitment pricing. Your current contract should stay intact. :(

    No that was the correct answer. Buying any phone at AT&T's non commitment pricing does not extend your contract. If you paid full retail for a phone with AT&T and they extended you contract or changed your upgrade date, you need to contact them and ask to speak to a supervisor. I've had this happen to me once and I was able to get it fixed with one call to customer care.

    Did you buy the 64GB? If so that explains your conundrum.

    If you paid $449, $549, or $649 (early upgrade) then you extended your contract.

    If you paid $549, $649, or $749 then you paid for a no-commitment one.

    Unlocked ones (when available) are another $100 more for each GB model.

    If that's the 64gb version, yes. It will ext the contract. That's not the full price. I paid $800+ for full price which won't change my contract. I think the $649 is still a partial price. Damn Apple for making msrp so crazy. :)

    When the op said he wants to buy it off contract full price for $649.
    He didn't say he wants to do an early upgrade for a 64GB iPhone.

    Those prices are off my Greek brotha:)
    It's full upgrade $199, early upgrade $449 and full price $649.
    All for the 16GB model.

    What is your source for these prices? I have never heard of a difference in price between the no-commitment phone and an unlocked one.

    These are the wrong unlocked prices. The real ones are:

    $649, $749, and $849.

    Because there is no difference.

    iPhone 5
    16GB = 649.99
    32GB = 749.99
    64GB = 849.99

    iPhone 4S
    16GB = 549.99

    These are the no commitment/unlocked. However, unlocked will vary depending on carrier.

    From my understanding, CDMA iPhones cannot be activated amongst each other, so a Verizon iPhone cannot be activated on Sprint and vice versa.

    However, the iPhone 5 on Verizon can be activated on AT&T, regardless if you paid for a 2 year agreement, or the no commitment price.

    Then your a$$ got ripped off! Call AT&T asap!

    Why would they call it no commitment if it will extend your contract? just doesn't make sense, might as well take on the early upgrade discount of $450. ;)
