These aren't iPhone deals.

The storefronts are competing with each other to lure suckers into signing up for contracts which they get a bounty on.


Cheaper than the on-contract iPhone from the Apple Retail Store.

I love how MacMall prices are always included, even though that is what they normally charge. Kind of as a way of reminding us that other retailer's sale prices are usually not really very notable (more for computers than iDevices of course).
