    I heard this a few days ago, but I'll believe it when I see it. I think they'll sell the phones on the Apple site and the buyer will have to call and activate it through At&t customer service. Lots of rumors flying around.

    Would be cool to sign up for ATT service on iTunes.

    You can't mix the service side of the partnership with the manufacturing side. I don't see it happening.

    Sure you can. Enter in your SIM and IMEI, and your info was already inputted when you bought the phone from the Apple site (i.e., your credit has already been run, etc). All you'd be doing in iTunes is essentially saying you got it, maybe hooking it up with the USB cable to prove you have it in your possession. Etc...

    Would be nice. Already talk that the iPhone will interface with iPhoto and iTunes. Makes sense to have it do other things through iTunes than just music/movies. Who knows...

    Pretty sure ringtones will be offered through iTunes if the pics from the keynote were accurate.

    That will simplify things and is in tune with how Apple operates. The simpler the better.
