    You will be able to buy the phone at the FULL retail price (i.e. no discount). The advantage to this is that you don't extend your contract.

    Might I suggest looking into the Nexus One if this is what you choose to do though?


    Welcome aboard BTW!

    Yes if your not getting a discounted phone just get any unlocked GSM phone like the Nexux one.

    If you haven't set up an online account with AT&T yet, you might want to get one. You can check your eligibility online and in many cases you could be eligible for upgrade prices after 12 or 18 months, even though they told you 24.

    IMO, it's a MUCH better phone.

    Sorry for not asking this first, but when you say FULL retail value, does that mean the $130 that it says on the website, or the ridiculously high price? Thank you and sorry for not asking this first.

    If you are not extending your contract and upgrading that way then it would be the ridiculously high price.

    Nothing to be sorry about, we are all here to help!
