    I've talked to a couple Apple Store Managers, and both told me they absolutely HAVE to activate the phone before you leave and walk out with it. So long as you want to pay the subsidized price. I was told that's the deal they have with AT&T. If you want it sealed, you can buy it unsubsidized (which to my knowledge is not possible on launch day), or have ordered it online.

    I would agree with the others, if you want the subsidized price, you are going to have to activate it at the store. Otherwise, what is to stop you from getting a subsidized phone, jail breaking it, and then going to T-Mobile ?

    How about the fact that you had to sign a two year contract with AT&T to get it in the first place? That might stop you.

    Not true. I have an unsub. phone reserved. It was the default option on the Apple Store app. when it could not reach the ATT servers. It's still confirmed, though I won't be picking it up b/c I was able to get a subsidized phone shipped to me.

    I've activated at Apple and gone right across the street to the ATT store to switch. It's really not that big of a deal, as long as the account owner is present.

    are you doing an upgrade swap? I thought Apple could do that as well by just calling AT&T when you purchase your phone at the Apple store.

    Or just go to an AT&T store later after purchasing it will help.

    I have asked 3 apple store employes

    I have asked 3 apple store employes they all said they would do the upgrade swap at the apple store for me. Has anyone had this work before for them?
