several q's; if anyone can answer these it'd be appreciated:
-when purchasing the iphone 4g @ apple, is it required you have at&t?
-if not, is there pricing on purchasing the phone by itself or it is mandatory 2 yr contract no matter what?
-possible for a friend(t-mobile user) to use this phone or too soon to tell?
- no it is not required to have at&t
- $599/$699 (16GB/32GB)
- no because the phones will be locked to at&t. your friend will have to wait until someone finds a way to unlock the device. even then, 3g on t-mobile will not work.
