    Don't know if this has been posted or not, searched but couldn't come up with any results. AT&T has revealed the cost of the iPhone if you are not upgrade eligible or if you want to buy one without singing a two-year contract.

    "In a nutshell, if you're 'upgrade eligible' (log into your AT&T account to see if you are), you'll be able to buy the new iPhone for the discounted price of $199 for the 8GB version or $299 for the 16GB model. (AT&T is somewhat vague about the eligibility criteria, although your credit history and the time remaining on your contract are factors.) You'll also have to pay an $18 'upgrade fee.'

    If you're not eligible for the discount, you'll have to fork over extra for an 'early upgrade'-$399 for the 8GB iPhone 3G or $499 for the 16GB model. Ouch.

    AT&T also says that a 'no-commitment' (read: no contract) iPhone 3G will be available soon, at $599 for the 8GB version and or $699 for the 16GB handset. Pricey, but hey-no two-year contract"
