    I've google searched and I am was wondering the best way to get it on prepaid. I don't want the 3G iphone, so i'm getting last years model.

    Should I go with t-mobile or at&t?

    i already have a touch and i'm selling it. i want to get a new phone and my verizon contract is about to expire.

    i don't want to be tied to contracts anymore. i only use maybe 100 mins a month.

    Now that it looks like we might not be able to just buy the phone by itself without a contract, I might sell mine on ebay/craigslist. I'm gonna ask for maybe enough to cover for a new one, since I'll be likely staying with AT&T. No 3G for iPhone with T-mobile. :(

    best way is to buy one now while people think they can get the new one for 199, they wont be able to w/o a contract so prices will go back up. But basically go on slickdeals.net find a gophone for 20 bucks, activate it, buy used iphone and run iliberty.

    Ha, this is exactly what I'm waiting for, for 1st Gen iPhone prices to go back up. I'll sell mine for a hefty amount and upgrade to a 3G phone, i'm an AT&T customer.

    I think i did it wrong. Some how they approved me for a 2 year contract despite the fact I'm a shit load of debt and I'm late for my verizon bill every month.

    Wow. Just wow!
