Do I need to commit to a long-term contract for my iPhone?
Buying a SIM-free iPhone from the Apple Online Store allows you choose your own carrier and change carriers at any time. iPhone may also be available at a reduced initial price with a contract directly from your wireless carrier.
If you want to be amongst the first to own an iPhone 4 outside the initial countries where the 4th gen iPhone is launching you can ask your friends abroad to pre-order now and send them to you !
But wait the new iPhone uses a microSIM card which is also used on the iPad 3G. This means that you cannot use your regular SIM card on the new iPhone without cutting it down !
