That's my question too!!!
Well, to put it simply - it is not fair. I mean I would offer a choice - either to purchase Iphone with AT & T package and at this case part of its price will go to AT & T pocket or just Iphone. I believe both choices are beneficial for Apple and AT & T.
I'm from Ukraine and I have plans to buy Iphone in July when I'll be in Toronto at the Eaton store but now...hmm....what I'm gonna do with AT & T number here?:-))) I mean I'll fly 10 hrs. on a plain to pay $600 and they won't be able to sell Iphone with no pre-installed AT & T?!
I've been waiting for its release since Steve Jobs announced its coming release back in January and now....I guess you understand what I feel...
