i know that v1 had to be credit or debit cause of unlocking, but since its activated in store, can i pay with cash because my debit has a $500 limit and i wanted two 16gb for a family plan so ican takeout 200 a day before . or even better by check?

also, will they let me buy the two if im by myself for my fiance? and do you pay activation upfront or 1st bill?

i know you can buy up to three phones by yourself, activation i believe is in the store as you activate, those are the only questions i can answer for you

I can't imagine why AT&T and/or Apple wouldn't let you pay in cash for the new 3G because of the in store activation. The only reason they didn't accept cash before was so that they could trace the iPhones that were potentially going to be unlocked.

they still might not, they wouldn't even let me by headphones in the Apple store with cash so there has to be another reason why the want credit cards

According to the information that Apple released a few days ago, there will be a limit of "one iPhone per person on line."

Try to bring your fiance with you to make sure you get two! :-\

I agree with Phil; it's most likely they'll accept cash, now that unlocking won't be as large of an issue with in-store activation.

They'll take cash for the phones and the possible deposit, but the activation fee will be on your first bill.
