Apple's retail stores can release AT&T iPhones if the unlocked pile runs low

Apple is advising staff at its retail locations to just grab an iPhone 4 from the AT&T pile, and release it from the carrier shackles, if it runs low on stock with unlocked iPhones. Of course, this will still run you $649 for the 16GB version, and the healthy $749 for a 32GB version, but it's nice to have options...

they should sell the iphones for double on-contract price... like 16gb = 400$, then even more people would buy it... and i think apple would make more money by eliminating the stocks of iphone 4, then in sept, release an iphone for all carriers to make even more money

Why sell the phone for less if you are running out of stock? They have a quick way to convert AT&T-locked phones to unlocked GSM world phones. If they are selling out, why should they sell the phones for less?
