    The back of the iPhone box says:

    "Requirements: Minimum new two-year wireless service plan with AT&T required to activate all iPhone features, including iPod features."

    I definitely didn't sign a new two-year deal when I got my first-gen iPhone so maybe it's just something they have to say for new people coming to AT&T?

    I think this is a change in policy. This is how they can afford to subsidize the phones. Everyone gets a two-year extension no matter what.

    I understand that, but if it said it for the first-gen iPhone also, maybe it's just something that has to be said for people changing carriers for the phone. I had AT&T already so I went into the store, bought my iPhone and that was it, activated it at home.

    When you activated it at home (via iTunes), you had to check a box in iTunes during the activation to agree to Apple's terms, and then you had to check another box agreeing to AT&T's terms before iTunes would activate your phone.

    AT&T's terms that you agreed to should have started you on a new two-year contract when you finished your iPhone activation.
