Let's not talk about iPhone 4 here. I can't seem to figure out the iPhone subscription plan. It's apparently very different in the US than in India. My question is: Can I buy the iPhone 3GS for $99 in the US and jailbreak it so that I don't have to pay for the 2 years subscription of the carrier? (or at most pay for the month I buy it). US iPhones aren't tied with Indian carriers. Indian iPhones aren't tied to any carriers but they're much more expensive.
