iphone activation fees

Me and my brother are both buying an iphone tomorrow. Will i need to pay the activation fees? On at&t's website it says no fees if you order now.

Okay, this has been asked because I have answered. Some are even on the first page!! They will be charged to your phone bill.

Can you provide the link? Whenever you sign up for AT&T (or any other company), you get charged a $36 activation fee. If you are already a customer and upgrading, it is an $18 upgrade fee.

It says no fees for some phones. They are waiving it if you purchase the old iPhone.

I do not think this is for the new iPhone. I know that they are waiving it for the 3GS.

I remember when I activated back in September of 2008 I asked to have the fee waived and they did it immediately without question.

YMMV
