Apple iPhone 3GS without AT&T contract at full price retail stores and site
It seems offering iPhone without AT&T contract has become a standard practice for Apple as it comes near the time to launch its new generation of iPhone. Yes, you heard that right; Apple has begun offering iPhone 3G and 3GS for sale without an AT&T contact at full price on its retail stores and websites.
So now you will be able to buy iPhone 3G or 3GS without the need for a 2 year contact with AT&T.
The iPhone with this contact are still locked to the AT&T network therefore the customers will be required to unlock there phones to be able to bring them to the other mobile service provider’s network. In the US the cellular service provider is largely limited to T-Mobile and the unlocked iPhone can work on this network though without 3 G connectivity.
The option to buy iPhone off-contract at the non-subsidized price may not come cheap to its customers because of the absence of a career. But if you end up avoiding the two year contact you will definitely get the hardware for a far lesser amount.
The off contract scheme is available on 3G 8GB iPhone that will now cost you $499 while 16GB 3GS will come at $599 and the 32GB 3GS at $699 without subsidy. As to when you can get these unlocked devices, Apple has not yet made any official announcement regarding the iPhone neither has updated its web store to indicate the change. But according to PC world the offer has already begun and the same has been confirmed by Gizmodo through the official internal Apple documents.
Apple seems to follow the same pattern every year when it is time to end its current iPhone iteration. But according to analysts’ guess, it is Apple’s move to sell- off as many units as it can to get ready to deal with the influx of its next generation (which is the fourth generation in this case) iPhone stock. There are apprehensions that while the company may be able to stick around with the 3GS for some time in the future, the 8GB iPhone is sure to get out of sight.
Apple allows one iPhone per day per customer to a maximum 10 total phone under the contract free offer.
