Do you get "free" 3G service to activate your phone?

    Okay so I'm asking this question because I have a total lack of patience. I'm a college student and next Friday I have work. Basically I have to come home, drop off my stuff, and go to work. I know the iPhone will already be there waiting for me, but I'm not going to have time to activate it on my computer. I simply cannot have the phone in my possession for 7 hours without being able to use it (my aformentioned impatience lol).

    So I know iOS 5 has a new feature where you can set up a device without connecting to a computer. However I'll be doing this at work, with no Wi-Fi. So my question, does the phone give you "free" 3G access to set up the phone with? Kind of like how on the iPad you can use 3G to buy more 3G. Thanks!

    I would imagine so, but I would check with the Apple Store just to be sure.

    It doesn't take 60 seconds to activate, do it as you pass through.
