Remember how Best Buy is going to sell the iPhone 3GS free with a plan tomorrow?  I’m sure a few of you thought about heading over to the Apple Store and asking about one of their famous Price Match guarantees?  Forgetaboutit.

We just had a short discussion with an Apple Store employee who told us that they’ve been told by upper management to batten down the hatches tomorrow for the onslaght of customers looking for free (with plan) iPhone 3GS’s.

The official policy is:

‘We don’t price match the iPhone…period’

He added regarding Radio Shack’s trade-in policy:

We don’t do trade-ins either.
