If you already have AT&T all that is required is that you sign a new 2-year contract. If you get a v1 iPhone, this could be done through iTunes and I don't know about the 3G version since they are only activating it at the stores.

No. It doesn't work like other phones. If you get an unlocked first gen iPhone you can just slip in your sim card. If it is not unlocked then you'll need to go by AT&T to get a new sim card. You want get a 3G off eBay because anyone that has one just signed a new two year contract.
