Leaked AT&T Presentation Document Shows iPhone to Be Sold Contract Free For $599 and $699

Would You Pay $600 to Get the iPhone Without a Contract?

Do you fear commitment? Is the only thing you don't like about the iPhone is that it's on AT&T? Well AT&T themselves are basically solving that problem, by offering the iPhone 3G with no commitment for $599 and $699, as this leaked picture obtained by The Boy Genius Report shows.

Though it looks like you do have to be a customer to buy the iPhone contract-free, you won't be in a contract with the carrier, if that's what's been holding you back. It's a very tempting offer, especially with the 3.0 OS update this Summer (but I also wonder if this means that iPhones are being cleared out because there'll be a new device coming).

Still $600 — and $700 — is a hefty price to pay for a cell phone, but then again, plenty of people bought that baby in 2007 when $600 was the price.

Where do you stand?

Nope. The iPhone in Mexico is 10,000 pesos (714 US DLS aprox)and doesn't come with any plan. You have to get pre-paid cards and I think it's waaay too much for a phone. I know it's not ANY phone, but still I think that's an abuse. I have a regular phone plus my iPod touch which it wasn't that expensive.

I don't know exactly how the business works there but mine is the paid 500€. It's more expensive to have it otherwise I'm going to kill some Apple dude if after 3.0 OS update I have to pay even more $$ :D

hell no! definitely not worth it. MAYBE like michelina25 said...without a monthly bill for a year. but I'm sure that would never happen... so, no.

I would really love an iPhone. But again, the problem for me is the fact that AT&T is involved in this process at all. I have had some pretty major issues with them in the past and everyone that I know that has had AT&T has had the worst experiences too. If AT&T is still the provider... NO thanks.

I was going to make the same comment as labelle. The other thing I don't get about this is you're still tied to At&T- so what's the real benefit? I paid $650 for my Palm Treo over 5 years ago but it was unlocked and I could use it on any network. Contract free and unlocked are not the same. Maybe I am missing something?

Only if I can get it no-contract without being a previous customer. I do not like AT&T and while I would love an iPhone I will not switch and sign a contact with this carrier. For me, $600 would be worth the phone and no commitment to AT&T.

"why not just get it with the contract and then cancel it. the early termination fee shouldn't be as costly as getting the phone without the contract." because if AT&T finds out you're doing that, they'll charge you.

I actually like AT&T so I don't mind the 2-year contract extension. I've been with AT&T for YEARS. I've seen it gone through 3 name changes. Bell South Mobile >> Cingular Wireless >> AT&T Wireless. I might as well own stock in the damn company lol
