    I think it's $699 for the 16GB at Wally, no contract price... But, you can't use the iphone [ in it's locked state] unless you activate it with a 2 yr commitment thru iTunes, IIRC!

    There's no indication that this is true (that you can buy a contract-free iPhone 3G at WAL*MART), so you really haven't learned anything yet.

    All they show on their web site is the subsidized upgrade-eligible price with 2-year contract: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/catal...tNavId=542371#

    That's not true. Please don't spread false information.

    Wal-Mart is not selling the iPhone on no contract price.
