    you might get away with it, if you can unlock the new phones!

    Default [iPhone 3G] Apple to Force In-Store Activation

    Taken from iClarified

    Just like I said would happen, this will certainly be implemented into the UK and Europe


    Apple is trying to put an end to unlocking by requiring that all new handsets be activated at time of purchase, according to AT&T's President of National Distribution Glenn Lurie.

    Lurie told Gizmodo that there will be no in-home activation for iPhone 3Git does require a two-year contract, and it will have to be activated in store (at AT&T or Apple Store), which takes 10-12 minutes, meaning that first day line is going to SUCK. And you will have to camp out, since there won't be any online ordering at launch.

    Gizmodo is also now reporting that "AT&T and Apple are working on a form of penalty for users who don't activate their iPhone within 30 days of purchase." Another obvious attempt at hindering unlockers!

    Ok, how will you be able to walk out unactivated in the first place to be hit with the "penalty for users who don't activate their iPhone within 30 days of purchase."???

    Says who? I don't trust speculations, I trust FACTS. Give me at least ONE trusted source like Apple saying "hold on folks, don't rush to camp out on July 11, it'll come online... later.." Gimme a break!

    and you didn't have to return the handset? i would be shocked if they really let you off easy like that.
