    Default Bought unactivated/sealed from Apple store. What next?

    Got my iPhone from Apple Store in Chicago. The rep did the usual credit check, gave me the new phone # and an iPhone. telling to activate it at home. I paid only for the iphone : 199 +tax.

    What happens if I don't activate it and just unlock and use with my existing service? Technically the contract should not start untill I pay the activation fee or am I wrong?

    The activation portion just has to do with the iphone not the line of service.

    You're sim is active and therefore you will be receiving a bill from AT&T that will need to be paid every month.

    But I did not pay the Activation Fee of $36 and have not signed anything other then credit card receipt for the iPhone. Are you saying that the first bill will include $36+ first month charges?

    that is correct.

    The activation fee is included on the first months bill.

    You can try and cancel service within 3 days claiming that you aren't happy with the service and see if they make you return the phone.

    If you cancel within 3 days they do not charge the activation or cancellation fees.

    Someone in another thread said that the rep on the phone did not make returning the phone a requirement.
