I've seen the thread regarding where ppl intend to purchase, but is there any upside to apple vs at&t with regards to later support, meaning if I have a problem will it be easier to deal with if I purchase at Apple or is there no difference. If I recall correctly I can purchase applecare after the fact. I'm not interested in purchasing at apple for the "experience." I'm porting numbers as well. Can apple handle that in their stores? I suspect, in my area, that the lines will be shorter at AT&T.
