    Alright so my friend is a legit ATT customer with the current iphone. Can he go to the apple store and buy his first one and legitly activate and then get a second one saying he broke the first one to give to me? Wouldnt he not be required to activate the second if he was going to use his paperclip i mean "sim ejector tool" to put his first 3g sim in the new 3g phone?[/
    Also:
    He is going to scotland during the time the new one comes out, could he pick me up a pay as you go o2 version and bring it back to the US? Does a uk phone work in the us?

    WTF are you talking about? Bunch of idiot speculators around here confusing the heck out of facts. Have you been to Apple.com? Can't you read? If it was to be available online they would have said that. Apple doesn't just forget to mention things....

    Last nite I went into the biggest Apple retail store here in Northern California and talked to the store manager. He confirmed what I said repeatedly. Apple is not in the business of phone activation. You buy the iPhone and you go home and activate it with iTune. The only limitation is you may not buy more then an (X) number of iPhone. Their Apple retail stores sell more stuff then just the iPhone. Apple online will update the site accordingly on July 11.

    My money is on the activation through iTunes. Apple is not going to make you wait and activate it in-store.

    Come on guys.. read the news again. Activation will still be done through itunes if you want to.

    The only difference now is that you won't be able to get out of the store (Apple or At&T) without signing the 2 year contract, which is a different thing.

    Don't confuse activation with contract signing. Activation simply enables your phone functions.

    If you later claim you have lost or damaged your phone they will want the damaged phone back and incase of loss you will have to pay full retail price ie not $199 for a new phone. This is standard practice with phones on contract when lost. At least in the US it will be very difficult to get hold of iPhones without contracts. Things are not looking good.

    Like you will sign a contract in store and then go home with some sort of code and activate it on itunes. This sux. I dont want a contract with rogers. Fucking cellphone companies.

    Just because some stupid clerk says something, does not mean it is true... Best example of it, here in Canada.... We were calling our GSM provider Fido for months to make sure our $7 unlimited browsing plan will work for iPhone. Tens (hundreds) service reps have assured bunch of us that it would.... and after three months some guys got slammed with a few $K bills for data...

    Clerks know shit.... is my point. Info on Apple.com is undoubtedly 100% the most reliable source.

    oh man, i wish i could back up what you said. but i just spoke with an apple store rep online and she said that you can only activate the phone at the store and not through itunes. i think someone should start a thread with a poll question asking if the rep they spoke with said yes or no to itunes based activation and see what the percentages are.
