Does the account owner really need to be present at store to complete the sale? *Sigh* Unable to pre order all day today, with this error: "We were unable to complete set up online... To finish creating your account, you’ll need to visit an Apple Retail Store where we can help you in person." Seems like every year I go through this, but it's never very clear what will happen in the store this time around. In previous years, I got the phone discount, and then I tell them I will just activate it at home since there's this problem with the account holder social security number being different than mine. That has worked well, since most of the time all they do is strongly urge you to activate the phone there but haven't required it. My contract is now up, that apple order page says that I am eligible for the discount. My wife gets a slight FAN discount that is why it's under her name.
