My brother walked in to an apple store to buy me an iphone 5, he wasnt lucky enough to find any on stock but the guy at the store hinted him that tommorrow they were gonna have some. And he told him that there was no problem with selling the phone as ''device only'' BUT that he would need to provide his number so that he could activate the phone before selling it to him... I dont understand, my brother dosent even have att and i was planning to use the phone with another carrier here in mexico. He is paying the full non contract price. Could he buy the device only without having to provide anything or the phone being activated? IF so, what is the correct way to ask for the phone and not confusing the apple store rep?
