Hi, my name is Travis and I recently bought my iphone (yesterday). I also recently switched my service to AT&T (Cingular). Me and my mom got a family talk plan (1400 minutes) my mom got a regular phone and her phone was made the primary. I put everything in my name so I had to put a $100 deposit down on both of our phones. The girl at the AT&T gave me a reciept and on that reciept it had a credit check number something she said I would need to activate my iphone. So I get home, first I have to download the latest version of itunes. After that I connect my iphone to my computer and I am ready to go! She specifically told me to click on the option "add a new line to an existing phone / plan" So I did that, I put in all my information and stuff and I click submit on the last page (where it is giving you a summary of what your activation fee is and other charges) after that a page comes up saying. You have 1 of 3 options to activate your iphone 1. You need a credit check number, you may go to the AT&T store to get one click here to find a local AT&T store. You may disconnect your iphone at this time and reconnect it when you have a credit check number. click here if you already have a credit check number I click on the option where I already have a credit check number and it takes me back to the first page where I have to start all over again Mind you, I spent 3 hours doing this over and over again. I called 1-800-myiphon and I was on hold for a total of 45 minutes and all she could tell me was that I needed to call AT&T. I called AT&T and the guy told me this "Well the only way I can activate your iphone is if you get another phone (like a regular phone) and then upgrade to your iphone. That just made me more mad that I already was =/. So I don't know what to do, I am going to go to the AT&T store after I get out of class to see what is going on. And what I can do because I want to activate my iphone and I want it now! Thank you for anybody who can help me!
