To me the most interesting thing about this FAQ is that there is no limitation on who can buy an iPhone, even if you are currently under contract to AT&T. I'm currently on AT&T and out of contract, I get upgrade to a new family plan, get 2 free phones today, then buy the iPhone next week and migrate the plan to that iPhone for an extra $20 a month.

The benefit of me doing this of course is that I can sell the 2 new phones I got for free on Ebay for close to $300 and put that money towards the iPhone, essentially creating my own phone subsidy.

Yep, this is definitely what I'm going to do.
