No Contract iPhone Available now in the Apple Store
As we mentioned last week, this move was expected today, but not by Apple. If you amble on by the Apple store, you won’t have to already be an AT&T customer to pick up an iPhone, nor are you limited to one phone per customer as you are at AT&T.
Naturally, end-of-life for the 3G is rapidly approaching and Apple are eager to rid their shelves of these beauties. However, be prepared to shovel out 599$ for the 8GB model and 699$ for the 16GB badboy – me? I’ll be grabbing three of each on a run down to God’s Country over the weekend.
AppleInsider also report that the newly purchased iPhone can be activated via iTunes and that AT&T contract is still mandatory, but there are ways to get out of that.
