I'll probably buy one in the next few days and I have few questions.
1. If I buy one on Apple.com do I have to sign up to AT&T?
2. Can I still use the iPhone(ipod,safari) without having AT&T contract?

thank you

To use the iPhone you must have a 2 year contact with AT&T and activate your phone. It will not work until you plug into your computer where you will set it up with AT&T via iTunes.

1. Yes
2. No

With that said, there are many news stories about unlocking the iPhone, but nothing has actually come out for the general public yet.
