[Question] *Recent* Gophone activations? or, Cheapest way to legitimately activate?
Has anyone *recently* (like in the last 3-4 weeks) been able to activate their iPhone for gophone service through iTunes or at an AT&T store?
And if so, what process did you use and what did you need to spend?
Basically I'm looking for a way to activate my phone for a short period of time so I can get a replacement, then be able to stop/cancel service with AT&T.
I believe the phone has a legitimate hardware failure (ie nothing I did caused it to fail) and need to get it replaced/serviced. Everything I've read (although most relevant posts are a month or 2 old) indicates the phone needs to be activated on AT&T.
Also a follow-up on Apple warranty service: do I need to schedule a AppleGenius appointment for service, or can I just walk-in and get service if a "genius" is available?
