According to Apple's internal documentation, the iPhone is now available without AT&T contract or ID at any Apple Store. Our contact claims that the iPhone is locked, however, so it will only work with AT&T SIMs. Here are the conditions:
• Customers are not required to have an AT&T contract.
• Customers can only purchase one iPhone per day.
Is that easy. Then it's up to you to unlock it. The price is $499 for the iPhone 3G 8GB, $599 for the iPhone 3GS 16GB, and $699 for the 32GB top model.
