Get a contract-free iPhone 3GS directly from Apple.com
It seems that there may be a pretty simple way to get an iPhone 3G S sans contract by way of Apple’s online store. I am not sure I would say this is a hack, or just a neat work around, but either way I have not tested it personally.
That said, this little trick also does not allow you to get any special or lower pricing. In other words you will still be paying the full rate for an iPhone 3G or iPhone 3G S.
Anyway, according to iTalkPhone you will need to use Firefox along with the Firebug plugin in order to do this. Assuming you have that taken care of, just follow the instructions listed below.
1. Go to any non-apple product in the store.apple.com (e.x: http://store.apple.com/us/product/TV943VC/A?fnode=MTY1NDA4Mg&mco=NjM0MTMwMw)
2. Click on the little FireBug icon on the bottom of the screen, now Firebug pops up and Click “Inspect”, and choose the “Add to cart Icon”
3. In firebug, right above where it’s highlighted, you should see “”. Click on “TV943VC/A” and change it to the value of the iPhone you want:
iPhone 3G 8GB ($499): MB046LL/A
iPhone 3GS 16GB Black ($599): MB715LL/A
iPhone 3GS 16GB White ($599): MB716LL/A
iPhone 3GS 32GB Black ($699): MB717LL/A
iPhone 3GS 32GB White ($699): MB718LL/A
4. Now click on the Add to Cart button, and the iPhone should be in your cart. Proceed to buy it if you want.
Of course, I am pretty sure that if you are willing to pay full price to not have a contract then you can also make the purchase in-person at Apple or AT&T. However if you are set on not having to go out in order to make a purchase, then this may be the best way.[via iPhone Freak]
