Victor, $199 is the 2-yr. agreement price for the iPhone 4. It's $599 w/o agreement.

Actually it is $649 full-price for the 16GB model: apple raised the prices in (I believe) February

Sorry, "Box", but that is incorrect. Geez, at least google something before you try and act like you know what you're talking about...

I am an AT&T employee, and box is correct. The no-commitment price was increased by $50 earlier this year and matches the prices for these unlocked models.
Also, the cost for buying a subsidized model is more complicated than just $199 + $325. You will also be responsible for the $36 activation fee and the first month of service, as the account can only be cancelled within the first 30 days with the return of equipment. So, minimum, 199+325+36+39.99 (voice)+15(data) = 614.99 + taxes. You do come out a little ahead.

Thanks for mentioning the activation and service fee, aricept! We've factored those in and updated the article.

Suggesting someone would be "better off" by submit to a credit check, wasting a sales reps time and costing him or her commission by signing up for a 2 yr contract then deactivating service within the first month just to save a few dollars on a phone is unethical and irresponsible journalism Victor H.

Reps dont make commission on iphones. I know I dont care if an iphone deactivates. Not affecting me at all.. wooo a $7 chargeback. I probably would make more on the comission from the accessories I would put out with it. Big Deal.
