Hey everyone, I'm going to travel to the USA really soon and buying an iPhone to use it outside, gonna unlock it and all, but I got a question, when you go buy the iPhone and the Apple store, do I buy just the iPhone or do the make you pay something extra for the AT&T service and all ?

Nope you just buy the phone; you activate at home through iTunes.

Not really sure about that part. If I had to guess I would say no since you can either insert an already active SIM card which should unlock the phone or you use a hack to unlock (so you can get into the iPhone to use its features) it then activate it with whoever you choose for your service provider.

Again I'm not sure on any of this since I'm fine with AT&T.

You need to activate it before you unlock it using a program like iNdependence if you're on a Mac or iBrickr if you're on a PC. It's very easy and one of the first steps when you unlock the iPhone.
