    Highly likely, since it's needed to check upgrade eligibility.

    You either need to be an authorized user at AT&T or know the last 4 SSN at an Apple store.

    You wouldn't be able to do that, either. They are going to need to verify the account.

    Yes, to order online. Not sure about in-store, it may vary - but I'm quite sure you need to prove you're the head line on the account if you do it in person.
