My 2 Cents: For those of you that have been waiting to make the plunge and get yourself one of the much acclaimed iPhone’s it seems that not might be your time. There is also the added bonus that you will not have hack it as well in order to get it activated on whatever network you would like ;O)
Remember those dirt-cheap refurbished iPhones we mentioned you could snag in-store? Well it looks like AT&T has decided to share the bounty with the public at large, and has begun taking orders for the $249 8GB models online. If you’ve been on the fence, here’s your chance to get in for $150 less than retail (and sadly for you early adopters, a whopping $350 tumble in price). In our experience, you can grab one in person with no activation,
though it looks like you’ll have to sign on the dotted line to have it delivered.
Update: According to our commenters, you can get these mailed to you activation / contract free
