    Exclamation Walking into store and walking out with iPhone

    What needs to be done?

    Today I had friends in the US who went to the ATT store twice and both times were not sold an iPhone for some reason.

    Can you tell me what needs to be done to walk in, buy it, walk out?

    I have a relative coming from the US (I live in Canada) and I want him to pick me up one...

    I don't want the same thing to happen twice...

    am I more likely to get one at Apple or ATT store? thanks...

    go to an apple store!!! Going to an att store will just be an annoyance because they will want you to set up your att data plan right there while apple won't bother you about it. I walked in the apple store and walked out with a iPhone in two minutes with no questions asked.

    Odd. You go into the store, produce your credit card and a proof of identity and you leave the Apple Store 400 USD poorer but iphone richer. Your id can be from any country in the world, since they only need it to ensure that you're the card holder of the credit card. There's no need to say that the phone will be used elsewhere, thus I wouldn't mention this.

    I think it depends on wether a person's financial capabilities can afford a 2 year plan by AT&T..They check out your economic situation and if you are unlikely to be consistemt on your payments,you get rejected..At least that's what's happening here in Greece.

    I herd the same thing from my friend in the US.
    I also herd this from some store owners here in Thailand that they are forced to sign a contract with AT&T.
    I don't know if this the case with other stores.

    Why don't you guy just order one from the online store?I did and they say that it would arrive at my door on sept 12. That'll save us some trouble getting around though. By the way, 399 is the price without Tax, in total it would be $430 including sales tax
