Finally the wait is over and all the questions can be answered.



At&t iPhone

Q. I just upgraded my phone recently. Are there any penalties or restrictions for upgrading to iPhone right away?
A.
No. Everyone can upgrade to iPhone right away.

Here's a cool .pdf file that might help explain a few things too.

Totally new page for me, with FAQ, super long contract terms, etc. CONFIRMED: Even iPhones purchased through AT&T (not just through Apple.com and Apple Stores) will be activated through iTunes!

Yeah. Try ctrl+F5 to refresh your browser.

This new pages answers all the questions we've been having. It disputes all those stupid store employees harping about needing to be eligible for an upgrade to get the phone.

FINALLY!:laugh2:

Also looks like a dock WILL be included in the box!

"Connect iPhone to your Mac or PC using the included cable and dock."

I have a question.

Since we can activate our phone through iTunes would need to be 18 or older to buy the phone from the store?

My situation is that I'm under 18 and initially I was going to bring my mom with me so she can sign the contract etc.

Does this mean I don't need her to come with me?

It appears that the only thing they'll do for you in the store is pre-approve your credit before you buy it. But even if you don't have credit, you can set it up on a GoPhone plan. That's awesome! Apple and At&t want anyone to be able to get an iPhone.

You have to have a credit card or debit card to activate the phone.

from the FAQ:

Activation

Q. How do I activate iPhone?
A.
You activate iPhone in a whole new way—using iTunes right on your computer. All you need is a PC or Mac, a credit card or debit card, access to the Internet and an email address.
The credit approval for your AT&T service also happens on your computer. It’s part of activating through iTunes, but if you’d rather have your credit pre-approved before you leave the store, an AT&T store representative can help you with that.
You will also select an available plan during activation.

I think you better bring her. They might not even sell it to you if you're not 18.

Att_employee posted this in another thread:

The ONLY eligibility requirements are these:
Customer must be over 18
Customer must have a credit or debit card
Customer must have an email address
Customer must have internet access
Customer may not activate device on CRU or NBI account

It might be a good idea to bring your mom.
