Welcome to EI!

You could buy it at any Apple store you want and then activate it using your laptop right there in the car if you want.

Don't know whether you'll be able to just switch SIM cards. Some are saying the iPhone sim is a proprietary size and will not work in other phones and standard SIM cards will not work in the iPhone. We do know that the iPhone will not work until it is synced with iTunes and the activation process is completed.

If you're setting it up in your name, you'll need your own SS#.
