If we're lucky, it'll be $59.99 for 650 anytime and unlimited night and weekends, but I'm guessing another $20 a month for unlimited text messages. So that would be $60+$20+$30 for $110 before taxes. Sigh.
    Ummmm helllooo!!! TXT is included in unlimited DATA!!!!

    i seriously doubt your friends store has the new iphone already. today was just the unveiling of the new phone. If i cant walk in and buy and iphone and do with it as i please then i will not buy the new one. I just dont see how they can get buy with this. I think that you should be able to buy the iphone from apple direct and activate at home, but if you go into the store then you should have to activate on spot. If all this is true then apple is gonna kill there sales because i bet 90% of iphone sales are from people that are not even on ATT!!!!

    Wow, that'll really stagnate sales.

    Will Apple only sell refurbished units in-store, as well? Sounds like a boondoggle in the making.

    I doubt this'll last long. And if it does... dump your Apple stock now, lol. With the poor economy and high fuel prices, the headlines that read - "new iphone fails to meet sales expectations" - will just write themselves.

    With fuel prices soaring, you really have to wonder about a company that eliminates internet sales from one of its top tier products. Not a smart move, at all.

    According to At&t site, you have to activate it at the store or you cant buy it. I don't think this stops the unlocking community but will hinder it.

    What about AT&T online? They sell the phone to you activated from them. I found it interesting that there "revolutionary" way to activate phones only lasted a year. And iTunes activation had nothing to do with unlocking. I am now taking this story with a grain of salt, since neither AT&T or Apple has said it (CS people do not count)

    The employees at the Apple Stores are talking about the old iphone not the new one. I am sure they haven't even been briefed on it yet.

    I just got back from the local AT&T store and spoke with the manager. It appears that it is true.. activation in the store only. You literally will have to sign a 2 year agreement or re-extend a 2 year agreement if you are currently an iphone holder. Apparently as well they are integrating AT&T substations into the MAC Stores as of July 1st .

    exactly. So this basically is going to put a stop to buying iphones on ebay. Why would i buy an iphone, activate it, cancel the plan and pay the early termination fee, unlock it then sell it on ebay??? So basically like i said apple has just screwed themselves if all this info is true!

    it's no big deal, just sign the contract. all cell providers have a 30 day trial period. just sign up for the plan and then within minutes cancel your plan and you won't have to pay anything extra.

    if the iphone going to release on the 11th stores should have been receiving the phones today. the chances that the stores get it tomorrow are slim cause there might be a delay shipment.

    I can see AT&T having this in store activation policy... only makes sense. That makes it fair for legit AT&T customers to have a decent supply of phones available. But this doesn't stop someone from going to the APPLE store and picking one up with the "understanding" that it will be activated at home.

    not exactly... i think this is why we are seeing a huge drop in retail price. The average AT&T Customers pays nearly $99 a month for 900-1200 minutes + data plan, unlimited text, etc. This makes sense.
