    Question Simple/Stupid Question

    Hi All,

    Instead of going through the eBay/international ordering quagmire, I have decided to just drive across the border to pick up an iPhone.

    My question is:
    Will I have to sign up for AT&T in the store? Or can I just buy the phone and walk out without signing anything.

    Thanks in advance and I apologize for my naivety.

    You can just pick it up and walk out of the store without signing anything.

    No need to sign anything. Just pay and your done. Activation can be done later.

    Note however that if you want to activate it for legitimate use (ie, get it on an AT&T account of some form), you'll either have to trick the activation system into offering you a GoPhone plan, or speak to somebody in the store about a deposit and/or international credit check.

    As of yet, I have not had any success convincing AT&T to give me a normal postpaid contract plan (which will allow International Roaming) without being told to actually go in and physically visit a store.

    So if you plan to use it as an AT&T phone over roaming, you'll need a postpaid plan, in which case you might as well sign up in the store, since they won't do that for you over the phone.

    Of course, if you're planning to use an activation hack and not use it as a phone at all (until it's unlocked, of course), then none of this is particularly relevant.
