    Has anyone noticed that VZW and Sprint are charging $100 more than AT&T is at full retail for the new 4S?

    I wonder why?

    That's what I thought. That's why I found it to be a little odd. I was always under the impression that Apple products were sold with a unilateral pricing system. I checked all 3 carriers. and the full retail is:

    AT&T-[/COLOR]16GB-$449.00 / 32GB-$549.99 / 64GB-$649.99

    Verizon-
    16GB-$649.00 / 32GB-$749.99 / 64GB-$849.99

    Sprint-16GB-$649.00 / 32GB-$749.99 / 64GB-$849.99

    So at full retail AT&T is selling each one for $200 less than Verizon and Sprint.

    I didn't check the contract pricing because I'm not eligible but I really want to get away from my Blackberry Torch so I have to pay the full nut.

    Those are AT&T early upgrade prices, not retail.

    That isn't full retail on AT&T it's early upgrade price.
