Well. in the UK, when i bought my iphone at my local Carphonewarehouse store, i had to sign a similar form. It basically says, have to activate within 30 days, no refund for change of mind (except if you fail credit check), and what to do if you have faulty iphone.

sorry if someone already posted this i wasnt going to look through the 13 pages of info here.. but ppl that go on a contract will be able to buy a few phones.. buy 1 go on a contract.. buy another one and tell them that u lost or broke the first one..so u end up with 2 phones 1 contract...of course nobody can unlock the 3g iphones yet.. but maybe down the road
I don't have an iPhone now, but I do have an AT&T contract. What's the deal for me? From our reading of the AT&T memo leaked to Gizmodo, it looks like you won't be eligible for the $199 price. "Upgrade eligibility will be determined based on standard upgrade eligibility rules," the memo reads. "Customers must be upgrade-eligible to receive the qualified upgrade pricing. However, not all customers will be qualified upgrades. AT&T has not determined the price of the 3G device for nonqualified upgrades."
if this is true.. this is absolutely rediculous
Porting to t-mobile to cancle is working for now for me.
PORTING TO T-MOBILE TO CANCLE IS WORKING FOR NOW FOR ME. Trying to cancle saying that you do not have a strong signal did not work for me.
HERE MY EXPERINCE.
DAY 1 Got Iphone from Apple
Day 2 Called ATT to complain about low signal (this did not go anywere, I was in the basement and put the phone into metal paint cans and still would get this thing to ring on incomming calls). The rep finally agreed that I might not get a strong signal everywhere, he said I can always return it at apple. Apple will cancel the contract as soon as they receive the returned phone…. (Day 2 did not help).
Day 3 Checked ATT account online to get password and accountnumber
Day 3 Signed up for a new t-mobile line of service online and provided password and ATT phone and account number to prepare the porting and automatic termination of the ATT contract *yehh, lets get serious
Day 7 got the Tmobile phone by mail and called them to activate it and to confirm with them that the number was ported. They rep needed to ask for the info again to port the number.
Day 8 Number ported, get „no service“ sign on Iphone (Great), and can call the T-mobile phone.
Day 9 Tried to log in on ATT website and got error message.
Day 9 Got call from ATT rep, wife answers and tells them to call my office which they did not.
Day 10 Called ATT to inquire about how to settle my bill. Billing Rep says that the account was terminated and that I will receive it until after the first months which is in 20 days. I should wait 25 days since it will arrive by mail.
Day 11 Canceled the extra line of service with t-mobile. I use and continue to use t-mobile ToGo on an old iphone. I hate 2 year contracts of any type.
Future (Not sure, Has someone done the same? What was the final bill?, Since there is no unlock in sight it might not be worth the trouble but this is a different story… )
