Hello everyone....ur friendly neighborhood at&t rep here. This just in...we received new training manuals today regarding the at&t side of things. IT will be exactly the same as the apple store process. Customers will come into the store purchase their iphone, take it home SEALED in the box and activate it there. You can get a pre-approved credit check if you want before leaving the store, but it is not required. No one will touch your iphone unless you want them to. All customers are to leave the store with a sealed box.
