    What's the deal with iPhone 4 no contract sale?

    I called Apple Store a dozen times in past 2 months to check if they sell the iPhone without contract and if they have it in stock. Every time they told me that I can buy it, but it is out of stock. OK.

    Finally the day when they had it in stock came, and I went on a 2 hour drive to the nearest Apple store.

    Apple Store Westfarms
    500 Westfarms MallFarmington, CT 06032(860) 521-7997

    The welcome guy greets me, I explain what I want (iPhone 4 without a contract). He says no problem, $599, and stand in the line there.

    While in line, another employee approached me. I explain the situation, and he says I will be next soon.

    After 1h of waiting, itís my turn. I say what I want again. He goes to the register, brings the iPhone, scans it with his device and denies me the sale!

    With the bad attitude and an apology, that's all he had to say.

    What is going on? Whatís the deal? People are buying tit all over The States without a contract.

    What do you think about this? And what do you do if you were me? Whom to complain?

    I don't suppose there was a store manager to take the issue to?

    I asked, he didn't have anything besides the attitude.

    He said it was the new rule. So the manager would say the same. With a lot of apology's.

    Why would he tell you that after your long drive and long wait? Why didn't the other Apple employees tell you that?
