    The volume button fell off so returned it to get a new one on there. They did some testing on the phone, and came up with an excuse not to fix it saying it had liquid damage. The phone worked fine, it was only that button issue and Apple refused to replace the phone. I will not buy apple products again.

    I initially agonized over this purchase two years ago. I can say after owning this device for those two years and having the opportunity to handle other like devices that there is none like it. The combination of ease, app availability, smoothness topped off with the cool factor make this "phone" stand out head and shoulders above the rest. Customer service is always the best! Get one if you can. Why settle for less?

    • A. Would be best for you to go to your local AT&T store and check your options. They ran an in-store special for the 3G that took $100 off if you took an early upgrade for an iPhone if you weren't eligible to upgrade yet. That price was $399 (8GB) $499 (16GB) and required to renew your 2 year agreement at that time.

    • A. You can get the phone without adding a line to your current account, but you would have to pay full price for the phone. They want you to sign on for another 2 years that is why they offer the phone at $199 and $299. AT&T gives you the option to do an early upgrade for a small fee, it might be worth it for you to do it that way instead of paying for the phone full price.

    • A. In order to place the Iphone onto your plan, all you must do is purchase this phone for its outright price at any ATT retailer such as the Wal-Mart Connection Center and have them switch the phone to whichever active line you wish to use it on. If you do not want to pay the full price of the phone, you will have to wait till that lines upgrade point in which you can upgrade your service contract and get the Iphone at its New Contract/Upgrade price.
