AT&T to sell no-contract iPhones
Let the unlocking begin!
AT&T will begin selling no-contract iPhones next week in the US, but they'll still be locked into AT&T service.
The Associated Press reported today that an AT&T spokesperson has confirmed that the company will being selling the 8GB iPhone 3G for $599 and the 16GB model for $699 - $400 above their contract prices - beginning next Thursday.
The phones, however, will only work with AT&T's service, which will be at its standard iPhone rates. No prepaid plans will be offered.
So what's the point? Plenty - just unlock the little fella, pop in an appropriate SIM card, and you're a free man. Or woman.
Who's four-hundred bucks in the hole. ®
