I am seriously considering buying one outright from the online Apple Store. Apparently1, I can do that, upgrade my current GSM SIM2, stay on my current plan, and just pay up-front for some monthly data.3
- Of course, I simply cannot reliably find this out. Surely the following is a FAQ: ‘I currently have a Motorola V3. It's post-contract, and while I suspect I am being reamed by my monthly plan, I am mostly satisfied. I would rather gnaw off a limb than try to decipher the quagmire of plans that you offer, so I will probably buy an iPhone outright from Apple. Is it then just a matter of fronting up to a Telstra Shop and asking for a new SIM?’
- Again, apparently it's literally a matter of asking for a new 3G SIM to replace my current SIM. I am sceptical.
- By which I mean partake in the Festival of Ream.
