    Even if you don't go with Matthew's suggestion, you should still be able to start a regular service plan without a contract. In fact, this applies to every smartphone and carrier. The only reason you are locked into a contract is to compensate for the subsidy spent on giving you a $650 phone for $200. If you bring your own (compatible) device to any carrier, you won't require a contract.

    So this iPhone 4 deal will definitely work on AT&T without needing to sign up for a 2-year contract. :)
