I'm sure theres away I've already said for 454.00 you can have one with out a contract so I'm not saying you can't. I'm just saing that at&t and apple whant you to active the phone in the store so they get there money and there making it hard on us who like to unlock and jailbrake our phones. Just like the new app store. Whats that all about. Its there way of charging us for the installer that we can get by jaillbreaking.

Lol why does it matter if at&t activation is required in store? Everyone living in Canada won't even need to go down to the states anymore since the 3G iphone is going to be released in Canada to at the exact same time. So unlockers could just buy it from rogers in Canada or at the Canadian apple stores. Also many wouldn't even need to unlock it cause a lot of us probably have rogers, (except those with t-mobile).

Just so you know the entire forum here isnt from canada and are using t-mobile US. thats why its a problem, also Canada is going to have the same activate in store policy as the US probably it wont even matter

HAHAHAHA. i saw this comin.
i dont need 3g

I'm with AT&T but I use the iphone as a prepaid.
I wonder how that aspect will be handled. I put bogus info to activate which you probably can't do in person.
I wonder if a prepaid option will even be available to those who really fail or if they'll just ask for a big deposit or no iphone.
If I can't keep prepaid I won't get the new iphone, will just keep the one I have. My main reason for getting an iphone besides obvious was I didn't want to stay in a cell contract with sprint anymore. Don't feel like getting in another one.

1sick94hb, Apple Will Actually Help Their Sales By Allowing People To Activate From Home............. Just Imagine How Long The Line Would Be If You Had To Do That To Get The New iPhone Activated In The Store. That Would Be Extremely Stupid Not To Mention Time Consuming.
You Must Have AT&T...... Hi Hater LOL

^^^^^Plus If All Fails I Will Buy The iPhone Then The Next Day I Will Cancel The Service. They Can't Make You Return The Phone........ I Will Raise H3LL or Say I Lost It.
That 14 Day Trial Service Is Still In Effect So Just Read The Fine Print!
They Can't Make You Keep Service That You Are Not Happy With Nor Return A Phone That You Paid For. If They Was Smart Or Really Wanted To Stop Unlocking They Would Sell The Phone For $500 & $600 Then Offer An Instant Rebate For 2 Year Agreement. That Would Be Where They Would Get The People That Don't Want The Service To Pay For Their Lost.
I Used To Work For Cingular So I Know....... Rusty Try Reading The Fineprint!

No, they charge you for an early termination fee if you cant return the handset plus the price of an unsubsidized phone
