I went to the Willow Bend Apple Store over in Plano, TX tonight to pickup an iPhone that I had reserved yesterday. I ended up coming home empty handed, as the did not want to sell an iPhone to me because of my age and credit history. I was there for around 30 minutes, about 10 of which I picked my plan and signed some electronic forms. They asked for my driver's license and Social Security Number several times, which I felt uncomfortable giving but ultimately gave to them. The other 20 minutes were spent waiting for Verizon to activate the phone. After awhile they moved me to another part of the store to tell me that they didn't want to sell me an iPhone because I was 'too young'. Verizon said that I don't have a credit history and they thought it was strange that a 23 year old would be buying an individual plan. They said that if I had a hard-copy of my original SSN, they could fax it to another Verizon location and see if Verizon might approve a contract. They said I would have to go to another location next week in order to fax it, because they didn't have a fax machine there. They wouldn't even guarantee that giving them my social security card would cause Verizon to approve me for an iPhone. Frankly, I'm really ticked off. I just wanted to buy an iPhone... I feel really let down that they wouldn't sell it to me... Sigh.
