    Default phone return , what to do ?? Help

    got an phone replaced in warranty .. it wasnt actiavted

    my friend with an at and t card picked it up for me ,, this is what he emailed me

    I got the phone back, but they insisted that I have to activate the phone there. So I gave my SIM card. Now my SIM card has a Data plan which costs extra 20/month. They told me to speak to AT&T to cancel it. At&T now tells me that they can't cancel it till I return the phone back to Apple.

    If I don't return the phone to apple I will be stuck with 20/month data plan.

    Now what do I do?



    advice ???

    Ok, what? It's your iPhone or your friends? Why did he pick it up and not you? Just tell the AT&T guy its a friend's iPhone and he is only the messenger not the owner.

    Dont tell them you lost it, they may block the imei number. Tell them that you are the owner, show them a copy of the receipt, and then demand that the contract that was setup be recognized as null and void, which it is. Someone may not enter into a contract like this on someone elses behalf, and they should have confirmed your identity when starting the new contract.

    When my iPhone's screen stopped working I took it back to Apple, they looked up the Serial and saw it was never "Activated" for 6 months.. They asked why, and I told them I.. never.. really got around to signing up for AT&T, yet [Shifty Eyes..]. They guy was real cool about it, but I needed to have an AT&T account..

    I signed up for AT&T at the Apple store, got the phone replace, and immediately canceled my service the next day. AT&T was a real b*^#$ to deal with, I got hung up on a couple times until they finally went through, transfered me to their "Saves" department and canceled the service.
