So, what’s the catch? It sounds like there is a catch and if you’re planning on unlocking, it’s a big catch. AT&T is saying there will be in store activation only, and there may be a penalty for not activating your iPhone 3G within 30 days of purchase. You also have to sign a 2 year contract whether you have an existing iPhone and/or account. They are also dropping the GoPhone plans and raising the data plan to $30 a month from $20 due to 3G. This shouldn’t effect me since I’m already with AT&T. We’ll probably move our numbers to the new iPhones and unlock our old ones for testing purposes. $10 more a month x2 for 3G is ok I guess (once they get it in our area).
