Every version of iPhone released by Apple has managed to be successful on the market, but the top sellers remain the iPhone 4 and the more recent iPhone 4S. If you are interested in buying one of these iPhone versions you should know that there are plenty of places from where you can make the purchase.
You should start by visiting the Apple stores in your region. You can find such stores across the US as well as in Canada, the UK, Japan and Italy. If you decide to make the purchase from such a store you will also be able to ask the personnel there to activate your iPhone properly. That’s a bonus service that you should balance when deciding from where you should get your iPhone 4. Similar services are made available by the AT&T stores that are quite numerous across the US (approximately 1,800). You should visit such a store especially if you are interested in getting an iPhone with a two-year contract. That’s because an AT&T representative is trained to both help you activate your iPhone and set up an AT&T account and explain you the differences between the plans available.
If you are interested in getting an unlocked iPhone 4 you should forget about Apple and AT&T stores and look for deals on retailers like Best Buy and Radio Shack that have been on the market for quite some time and accustom to run promotions every now and then. However, you shouldn’t expect to be impressed by large discounts when it comes to new iPhone 4s and iPhone 4Ss. You can get great deals from such retailers, especially if you are willing to invest in a used iPhone 4. What’s also nice is that Radio Shack offers a trade-in program that you can use to your advantage if you are interested in upgrading to an iPhone 4 from an older version. You will be able to reduce the price requested even by $200.
Also good news is that the recent models of iPhone have started to be made available with two-year contracts by other US carriers than AT&T. So, before making a final decision, you should also check out the offer of Sprint and Verizon. On the other hand, other sources of great deals when it comes to unlocked iPhone 4s are Wal-Mart and Craigslist and eBay that can help you get discounted prices especially on used devices. However, you should also check the offers on new iPhone models, because Wal-Mart for instance has surprised once or twice with some interesting iPhone-related promotions.
Bottom line, you need to keep looking because you can’t know in advance where the best deal will come from.
