    haha this is all actually pretty funny. Apple is making buying an iPhone about as easy as buying a bomb.

    Im pretty sure this is because AT&T is putting pressure on Apple. I dont believe they could be stupid enough to let thousands of iphones from selling if it were up to them only.

    Anyways, that is what they get for signing an exclusive with AT&T... I thought I took a course on economics and they explained the whole supply and demand concept. Sure doesnt apply with the iphone. Who would have thought this would happen? that a company restrict its sales, instead of just selling like crazy!!!..... stupid asses!!!

    Has anyone tried buying with American Express Traveler checks/cheques?
    or the prepaid visa card from WalMart?

    Seriously, if you disagree with this disrespectful policy by Apple (especially with Christmas season here), then just call up customer service and log a formal complaint (you have to give a fake name & tel: number - use *67 before dialing). If they get enough complaints (or lawsuits), they may reverse this stupid policy.

They even ship real fast (2 days) and they charge 19 for shipping per each 5 you order. Maybe this may help.
    How you can get them shipped to Canada?

    I am not a US resident. I assume that a credit check cannot be performed in AT&T store without a SSN? Besides that, what if I had a SSN and the credit check fails. Are they going to deny selling me the iPhone or can I apply for a GoPhone plan?

    they arent doing credit checks!

    apple is only looking to see if the credit card number had been used already to buy the phones.

    and for pendu, back at launch there were a few posters claiming they got the phones shiped internationally by having them shipped to a US PO box and then routed.
