    I have a thing about unboxing my apple products on my own time (slow and in awe at each step.) Did they unbox it for you with the 3GS on day 1 last year at AT&T or could you just take the box and leave?

    Unbox and activate for you. If you want to do it yourself, get it shipped.

    Yes, you could. Just tell them you'll activate at home by yourself. The rep might start unboxing it just because it's standard procedure, but just stop them and tell them you rather do it yourself at home. I did it with my 3GS, bought from a retail AT&T store. All AT&T need are the barcodes outside the box to register the phone with your account, no need to touch the phone itself.

    all they do is plug it into itunes to get the connect to itunes screen off right?

    Why do they need to do that? The 3G iPad is prepaid, and you can enable it directly on the iPad itself at home. No need for anybody else to unbox/touch your iPad. ;)
